Onion has been used as a natural medicine for many years, and more and more healing properties of this herb are being discovered. Onion is good for flu, pneumonia, prevents cancer, and yes, it’s also good for diabetes and will help you treat the disease naturally.
Onion has been found to help significantly reduce blood sugar levels, due to a substance it contains and is called “plant insulin”.
The onion has flavonoids vegetable pigments especially one called quercetin that helps protect the arteries and the heart; as well as reducing glucose rates and stimulating insulin production, making it ideal for Diabetes control. In addition, quercetin improves cholesterol control by reducing the accumulation of “bad” cholesterol—the one that clogs the arteries of the heart-; and prevents the formation of blood clots. In the face of this, it is recommended to eat a day between one to seven ounces of onion to lower the amount of glucose in the blood. Remember that it is possible to eat it both cooked and boiled.
Onion not only helps reduce blood sugar, but also prevents ferments from forming in the stomach, urine and blood, helping diabetics reduce the dizziness they usually experience.
