    Organic Red Onion (1 lb.)

    Overview

    DICED in a side salad, sprinkled as a garnish or chopped through a pasta dish - red onion might just be one of the best raw ingredients you can eat.

    Eating red onions in their natural raw state could keep your body healthy on a daily basis and prevent chronic disease in the long term. Why? Because red onions are absolutely packed with vitamins and minerals, including folate, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese and vitamins C, K and B6.

    Health Benefits

    Scientists have linked onions with many health benefits. Most of the benefits come from antioxidants. Research shows that one particular antioxidant, called quercetin, protects health in several ways. One study shows that quercetin fights inflammation and boosts the immune system.

    Red onions are full of sulfur compounds that protect the body from ulcers and various cancers. They can also fight bacteria in the urinary tract. The most important of these compounds is called quercetin - an antioxidant compound that could provide protection against cancer, heart disease and allergies.

    Onions have other health benefits such as:

    1.- Antibacterial Action

    2.- Cancer Risk Reduction

    3.- Digestive Health

    4.- Bone Health
