The Onion and Blood Pressure Link
- 9 Months ago
Recent research has found that onion extracts may help reduce the risk of blood pressure, perhaps also diabetes and weight gain. While we need to be more certain of these benefits, there's absolutely no harm in continuing to use onions in our daily meals.
Many health claims on onions have been made earlier. Some of them state that onions help to combat heart disease because of their anti-cholesterol effect. Some say they fight cancer because of the antioxidant quercetin, and others mention they have anti-inflammatory properties and help fight common cold.
