The onion, a popular food that is used as a seasoning in most dishes, is also great for preventing and fighting hypertension and diseases related primarily to blood circulation and heart like high cholesterol or triglycerides.
Although eating large amounts of onion can irritate the stomach and cause gas, it does very well to health in general. There are many types of onion, such as purple or shallot, which are the most popular, and which can be eaten, raw in the salad, canned, sliced in baked, chopped in rice and even minced in sauces to be eaten disguised by who does not like its texture.
Beyond taste, the onion has a high nutritional value, as it is rich in vitamin A, B vitamins (B1, B2 and B3), vitamin C; and is also rich in minerals like calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and silicon. Thanks to all its properties, it has been used for various medicinal purposes. Besides being a great natural expectorant, which stimulates the cleaning of the airways, it still favors the elimination of bacteria and manages to alleviate symptoms of respiratory problems, which makes it a great ally against colds, coughs, colds and bronchitis.
It is also antianemic, improves circulation and helps eliminate bad cholesterol, eliminates toxins from the body, prevents diseases of the nervous system and even helps in weight loss diets.
