Onion goodness.
Getting ready to make onion powder today. Thought I would share a thread about onion benefits. Image
Onions are nutrient-dense.
Low calorie but high in vitamins and minerals.
One medium onion has just 44 calories but delivers a considerable dose of vitamins, minerals and fiber
This beautiful veggie is particularly high in vitamin C, a nutrient involved in regulating;
🧅 immune health
🧅 collagen production,
🧅 tissue repair
🧅 iron absorption.
Vitamin C also acts as a powerful antioxidant in your body, protecting your cells against damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals
Onions are also rich in B vitamins, including folate (B9) and pyridoxine (B6) — which play key roles in
🧅 metabolism,
🧅 red blood cell production
🧅 nerve function
Coolest mineral onions are rich in is potassium.
This is a mineral in which many people are lacking.
In fact, the average potassium intake of Americans is just over half the recommended daily value (DV) of 4,700 mg
In order to function we need potassium. Potassium is responsible for
🧅 Normal cellular function,
🧅 fluid balance,
🧅 nerve transmission,
🧅 kidney function and
🧅 muscle contraction

In a paper published in Foodborne Pathogens and Illness, discusses the hygiene hypothesis, which they say first began being bandied about in the mid-1900s & has increased in credibility among doctors and other experts.
According to these researchers: “This hypothesis states that a lack of exposure of children (as well as adults) to diet, commensalism bacteria, & minor pathogenic insults results in an immune system that does not function normally.
This lack of antibodies to true pathogens in the immune system has resulted in the dramatic increase in allergies and asthma in developed country over the past 20 years.”
