Onions – Allium cepa

Onions lend their flavor to almost every regional cuisine in the world. While their taste is extraordinary and unique, onions also contribute to health and wellness, providing many phytonutrients, minerals, and vitamins. Onions have been coined the “rose among the roots” due to medicinal value known since ancient Egypt and commonly prescribed by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. Eating onions on a regular basis can lower the risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, regulate blood sugar levels, lower cancer risk, and reduce asthma and hayfever due to allergies. Nutritionally they are natural “uppers” providing beta-carotene, vitamin A, potassium, B1, B2, Vitamin C and a host of potent antioxidant and anti-cancer phytonutrients. Add fresh onion to nearly any dish to punch it up in taste and nutrition. Better yet, add onion, garlic and a dash of cayenne. Well your at it toss in some anti-viral mushrooms.
