Why drink onion juice

Onion water is a homemade extract gotten from either blending and straining onions or by juicing directly.

The potential benefits of its usage is why you should start using onion water now.

Rich in vitamins C, B6 and folic acid and an extensive supply of calcium, magnesium, iron, chromium and phosphorus, drinking a glass of Onion Water on an empty stomach in the morning can do a lot for the body.

Onion juice relieves stress 

Quercetin doesn't stop there. It also helps protect your body against stress. When you are stressed, your body produces cortisol.

Although cortisol production is completely normal, too much can damage muscle tissue and cause protein breakdown in the body.

In times of prolonged stress, quercetin suppresses the enzyme required for the release of cortisol, and therefore helps manage stress.

Anti-inflammatory 

Onion juices have anti-inflammatory properties that help people with joint pain and arthritis.

 Lower blood pressure 

The sulfur in onions acts as a natural blood thinner and prevents the collection of blood platelets.

Onion juice is therefore a great way to lower blood pressure and prevent the risk of heart attack or stroke.

In addition, quercetin also helps prevent plaque build-up in the arteries, which is also good against the risk of heart attacks.

Against digestion problems 

Onions are high in fiber, which is good for maintaining a healthy and regular digestive system. Fiber prevents digestive pain and breaks down food (5).

Bone density 

Onion juices strengthen bone density, especially for older women. Studies have found that postmenopausal women who incorporate onions into their diet have a 20% lower risk of disease.

Cholesterol 

Consuming raw onion juice promotes HDL production. HDL is the good cholesterol needed for good health in the body. On the other hand, onion also helps protect the body against LDL, the bad cholesterol, thanks to its antioxidant properties.
