A recent study was performed where researchers were hoping to find a correlation between human health, white onion, and garlic. Surprisingly, the study showed that the powerful antioxidants and polyphenols located in both of these forms of produce have the ability to lower blood pressure while also preventing diabetes. Just adding these two vegetables to your routine consumption can open a whole new world of health in making you much less vulnerable to these conditions.
- Findings from recent research suggest that garlic, white onion and purple onion inhibit key enzymes linked with diabetes and hypertension.
- The same sulfur compounds that cause garlic and onion to smell are what gives them their health benefits.
- The health benefits of garlic and onion are maximized when they are eaten raw.
“In a study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements, garlic, white onion, and purple onion were proven to exhibit powerful antioxidant activities which are helpful in lowering blood pressure and preventing Type 2 diabetes.”
