With the flu in the air and the scare of H1N1, here are some benefits that will surely interest you about ONIONS!  You will never look at another onion the same!

I was sent an email about onions and researched a little more into the medicinal benefits of onions.

~ It provides substantial relief from number of diseases such as common cold, asthma, bacterial infections, respiratory problems, angina,vomiting .

~ due to the presence of sulphur compounds and quercetin, in traces of essential oils in the onion juice. It aids in neutralizing the free radicals present in the human body as it has antioxidant properties.

The onions ability to relieve congestion especially in the lungs and bronchial tract, is hard to believe until you have actually witnessed the results.  The drawing of infection, congestion and colds out of the ear is also remarkable.

There have been cases in which the onion has been proven to be so effective as an antiviral that a cut piece of onion placed in a closed off room will prevent the person in the room to be safe from viruses.  I’ve actually had friends do this and have gotten better faster.  It stinks let me tell you, but you try anything at that point to stay healthy!
