What does Dr. Brent say about onions?

Family Wellness | November 11, 2009 | By

When I was a child (and much less concerned about how my breath smelled), I used to eat sandwiches all the time made of sliced onions and mayonnaise. I still do this some weekends at the farm when I know it’s just going to be me and the goats. They don’t mind.

Onions are loaded with phytonutrients which have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, lower cholesterol and reduce blood pressure. Their sulfur-containing phytonutrients (which cause the bad breath and the watery eyes) and the high level of chromium are also important in helping control blood glucose levels. The same sulfur-containing nutrients are also anti-inflammatory and can serve as a natural antibiotic.
