Did you know that onions contain a powerful compound called quercetin, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties? Studies have found that quercetin can help reduce inflammation in the body, which in turn may help lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer. So, the next time you’re slicing onions for your salad or stir-fry, remember that you’re not just adding flavor to your dish, you’re also giving your body a healthy boost! In a study involving 70 individuals who were overweight and had hypertension, the results demonstrated that a quercetin-rich onion extract had a significant impact on their blood pressure. After taking 162 milligrams of the extract every day, their systolic blood pressure decreased by an average of 3 to 6 milliliters of mercury, compared to the group who did not take it.

Contrary to popular belief, onions aren’t created equal when it comes to their nutritional value. According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the nutrient values of 10 different types of onions were compared, and the results were quite surprising. Shallots, for instance, were found to have the highest phenolic content and antioxidant activity among the varieties tested. On the other hand, the Western yellow onion is the champion for the highest flavonoid content.

A 2009 study published in the journal Menopause discovered that women who were 50-plus and consumed onions daily or more frequently had better bone density than those who ate onions once a month or less. The trial concluded that consuming onions daily could potentially decrease the risk of hip fractures by over 20% compared to those who rarely ate onions.

Not only are onions delicious and versatile, but they also pack a punch when it comes to promoting bone health. By intaking prebiotics like inulin and fructooligosaccharides found in onions, we can increase the absorption of calcium to keep our bones strong and healthy. In addition, these prebiotics also work to elevate the number of friendly bacteria in our gut, which is great news for our immunity.

It’s true that eating onions can have potential downsides, ranging from mild effects like bad breath and eye irritation to allergies. Because onions are believed to have some anticoagulant effects, if you’re currently on anticoagulants and have concerns, it’d be great to talk to your doctor.
