Health Benefits of Red Onion

 Health Benefits of Red Onion

 1 – Enhance detoxification pathways :
  Red onions are believed to increase the activity of glutathione and SOD (superoxide dismutase). These defense systems protect against cancer by inhibiting inflammation, repairing DNA and tissue damage, neutralizing free radicals, eliminating carcinogens from the liver, and supporting a variety of detoxification pathways that remove toxins from the body.

 2 – Increase overall immunity:
 Red onions contain health promoting compounds that improve your overall immune response.
 They are also a useful carminative herb that enhance digestive function and improves imbalances in gut microflora. The flavonoid content that contributes to these chemo preventive properties is higher in red onions than in their white or yellow family members.

 3 – Regulates sugar levels:
 One of the benefits of consuming red onions instead of yellow or white is due to their low glycemic index. Red onions have a glycemic index (GI) of 10 out of scale of 0 to 100.
This means that red onions are slower to release energy which increases blood glucose levels and can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

 4 – Suppresses cancer cell growth & development:
 Red onions contain high levels of quercetin which has been shown in studies to reduce the risk of laryngeal, gastric, andreproductive – related cancers.
 It also contains anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that help protect against tumor growth.
