* Onions are low in calories yet high in
nutrients, including vitamin C, B
vitamins and potassium.

* A study in 70 overweight people with high
blood pressure found that a dose of 162 mg
per day of quercetin-rich onion extract
significantly reduced systolic blood pressure
by 3–6 mmHg compared to a placebo

* A study in 54 women with polycystic ovarian
syndrome (PCOS) found that consuming
large amounts of raw red onions (40–50
grams/day if overweight and 50–60 grams/
day if obese) for eight weeks reduced total
and “bad” LDL cholesterol compared to a
control group.

* Additionally, evidence from animal studies
supports that onion consumption may
reduce risk factors for heart disease,
including inflammation, high triglyceride
levels and blood clot formation

* Multiple population studies have found that
people who consume more foods rich in
anthocyanins have a reduced risk of heart disease.
For example, a study in 43,880 men showed
that habitual intakes as high as 613 mg per
day of anthocyanins were correlated to a
14% lower risk of nonfatal heart attacks

* Similarly, a study in 93,600 women observed
that those with the highest intake of
anthocyanin-rich foods were 32% less likely
to experience a heart attack than women
with the lowest intake 14).

* A review of 26 studies showed that people
who consumed the highest amount of
allium vegetables were 22% less likely to be
diagnosed with stomach cancer than those
who consumed the least amount

* Moreover, a review of 16 studies in 13,333 people demonstrated that participants with
the highest onion intake had a 15%
reduced risk of colorectal cancer compared
to those with the lowest intake

* A study in 42 people with type 2 diabetes
demonstrated that eating 3.5 ounces (100
grams) of fresh red onion reduced fasting
blood sugar levels by about 40 mg/dl after
four hours

* A study showed that diabetic rats fed food
containing 5% onion extract for 28 days
experienced decreased fasting blood sugar
and had substantially lower body fat than
the control group
