People either love or hate onions. Onions are versatile and can be added to many different kinds of recipes like soups, omelets, casseroles, and just plain thinly sliced onion on burgers. The problem is that people who say they hate onions are doing their bodies harm because onions have many health benefits.

Keep Your Heart Beating

Onions are good for the heart. They can thin the blood, reducing the chances of a blood clot forming and help to lower the levels of unhealthy LDL cholesterol. Including onions in your diet will help you lower your risk of heart disease so make onions a part of a healthy and heart-smart diet.

Great Source of Antioxidants

Onions are a great source of antioxidants like quercetin, sulfur, and Vitamin C. These antioxidants are known to reduce stress on cells and slow down the aging process. They’ll strengthen your immune system so you’ll be less prone to illnesses like the flu and other viral infections.

Great for Dieting

Adding some onions to their diet will help people to lose extra pounds. Onions have no fat or cholesterol and an entire cup of onions has only 64 calories. Onions are great in salads, on juicy burgers, in stir-fries, and in delicious onion soup.

Detoxify Naturally

By adding extra onions to your diet the compounds rich in sulfur and amino acids will help your body get rid of toxins like heavy metals. These can build up in your system and if your body does not get rid of them will leave you feeling tired and run-down.

Improve Your |Mood

Onions will not only improve your physical health but also your emotional health. Onions help to block compounds in the body which can interfere with serotonin levels. Serotonin is what is known as the “feel good” hormone and helps to ward off feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression.

Rich With Healthy Minerals

Onions are rich with iron and other minerals like calcium, which your body needs for strong bones and teeth and magnesium which help you cope with stress and give you restful sleep.

Effective Against Some Cancers

Cancer is a frightening word and an awful disease. Onions are full of a compound known as allicin. Studies have shown that allicin has anti-cancer properties and has the ability to repel such cancers as of the stomach and colon and help to slow down the growth of tumors.

Antiseptic Properties

Onions have compounds that have strong anti-viral and antibiotic properties and help the body to fight infections. They are particularly good against e coli and can help the body ward off urinary infections like cystitis.

Treating Anemia

Having low iron levels in your body can bring on anemia and make you feel tired and worn out even if you’ve had a good night’s sleep. To help improve this condition you need an iron-rich diet to build up your red blood cells. Onions can help because they are high in iron. By including onions in your regular diet you can build up your body so that you won’t get anemic.

Help With Hair Loss

When onion juice is applied to the scalp for several weeks it can help against hair loss naturally if your hair is thinning.

So if you’re an onion lover don’t forget to always have some on hand and if you are not too much into onions you might reconsider and include some onions in your regular diet.
