Onions helps us in many health related issues as onion has about 85 to 90% wate, 7 th 10% carbohydrete 1 to 2 % protein and about .33% fat.It also has excellent vitamin source such as A,B,C an excellent sourceof potassium, magnesium,silica and calcium.About 100g of onion equals roughly 30 calories.It is a medicine for myriad complaints such as loss of appetite,a diuretic rheumatism,arthritis,colds,bronchitis and as an antiseptic. broken hearts, snake bite and blindness were thought to be cured in medieval times by onion treatments.In home remedy uses today,the onion is still a favourite, highly valued as phlegm loosening agent and for its antiseptic properites.So i suggest all my friends too use onions and keep good health.I wish a very healthy and happy life to all my friends out there.

Thanks for the excellent information. I don't really like onions, so I guess I'm missing out on a lot! My husband loves onions. I'm happy to hear that he is getting so much benefit from them. I guess maybe I should try to like them.

Yep, onions are very good for your health, just like garlic and other spices, but I only eat them in the evening or when I don't get out of the house for the whole day (which is very rarely) :D

Onions - onions
I love onions, but I never knew so much about them. I know if you want to stir up a guaranteed successful meal, throw onions and garlic in a pan with just about anything. I love to start breakfast with onions, peppers and eggs. Thanks for the information.

in my household, we always use sorts of spices. onions, garlic, tomatoes, gingeroot, chilis and pepper are among the favorites which we commonly use. we always do so because, spices are health inducers. they are cure to sorts of illnesses and diseases. onions are good for the heart, the veins, blood circulation and many more. as you have pointed out my friend, onions if taken regularly in our daily meals, will promote good health for us as it can do so much more than we used to think about it.
