1. Balances the blood sugar level
One study performed on rats with diabetes found that onion extract helps lower blood glucose and lower cholesterol levels when given with the anti-diabetic drug metformin.
So if you have diabetes, you may want to consult your doctor about it. Adding onions to your daily diet can help reduce blood sugar in a more natural way.
2. Strengthens your immune system
Onions not only contain antiviral properties, but are also rich in vitamin C. It can enhance and strengthen your immune system before the cold and flu season.
No wonder people add garlic and onions to soup for centuries when they are sick - not only do they improve the taste, but they can help you recover faster.
3. Healthy hair
When it comes to biotin (which is needed to convert nutrients into energy), onions can be a wonderful source. Biotin deficiency can lead to hair loss and scalp problems. Onions contain biotin, which makes your hair stronger and shiny.
Not only does biotin deficiency cause hair problems, but it can also cause dry skin with dandruff. Eating foods rich in biotin is a great way to maintain healthy skin during the winter months.
Are you starting to see a certain pattern here? Well, biotin again. Biotin supplements are known to strengthen the nails, which means that when you take them you are treating different parts of the body at the same time.
Well, I definitely plan to add more onions to my daily menu.
