Onion is a natural ingredient in the refrigirator, but did you know that it, besides tasting well, has a wide range of benifits for your health?

Here are 7 things you can expect from eating raw onion:

  1. The phytochemicals in onions improve the working of Vitamin C in the body, thus gifting you with improved immunity.
  2. Onions contain chromium, which helps regulate blood sugar.
  3. Onions reduce inflammation and heal infections.
  4. Raw onion increases the good cholesterol (HDL) in your body.
  5. The quercetin in onions can play a significant role in preventing cancer.
  6. After being bitten by an insect, apply onion juice on the area for immediate relief from the pain and burning sensation.
  7. Onions scavenge free radicals, thereby reducing your risk of developing gastric ulcers.

And one last point: Only eat fresh, raw onion, not the one you peeled the deay before. If you open an onion and put it in the fridge, it sucks up a lot of bacteria from the air.
