Research shows that onions are one of the most powerful healing foods you can eat.
One of the reasons onions are so potent as a health food is that they contain a variety of beneficial compounds known as phytobiologicals. One of these, quercetin, is particularly powerful and is known to have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Quercetin has been particularly well studied in diseases associated with inflammation; examples include atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer. It is most commonly used in inflammation of the bladder and prostate. Research carried out at the Dr. Rath Research Institute has demonstrated that a mixture containing quercetin, citrus bioflavonoids, and other selected micronutrients is very effective in reducing markers of systemic inflammation.
