Red Onions Nutritional Value

Onions are nutrient-dense, meaning they’re low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals.

One medium onion has just 44 calories but delivers a considerable dose of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

This vegetable is particularly high in vitamin C, a nutrient involved in regulating immune health, collagen production, tissue repair and iron absorption.

Vitamin C also acts as a powerful antioxidant in your body, protecting your cells against damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals.

Onions are also rich in B vitamins, including folate (B9) and pyridoxine (B6) — which play key roles in metabolism, red blood cell production and nerve function.

Lastly, they’re a good source of potassium, a mineral in which many people are lacking.

In fact, the average potassium intake of Americans is just over half the recommended daily value (DV) of 4,700 mg .

Health Benefits Of Red Onions

Scientists have linked onions with many health benefits. Most of the benefits come from antioxidants. Research shows that one particular antioxidant, called quercetin, protects health in several ways. One study shows that quercetin fights inflammation and boosts the immune system.

Onions have other health benefits such as:

Antibacterial Action

Research mainly conducted in labs has shown that onions may kill a wide range of bacteria. In one experiment, onion and garlic extracts inhibited the growth of several microbes. Garlic extract also reduced bacteria in the mouths of human volunteers. More research with human subjects is needed to show how onion affects bacteria in the body.

Cancer Risk Reduction

Eating onions and garlic may reduce your risk of cancer. Italian researchers found that those who ate the most onions were the least likely to have cancer of the colon, throat, and ovaries. In another study, researchers found that men who ate the most vegetables of the allium family were the least likely to have prostate cancer. Researchers believe that antioxidants are responsible for the cancer-fighting properties of onions.

Digestive Health

Onions contain fructooligosaccharides, substances that act as prebiotics. They pass through the small intestine without digesting. In the large intestine, they feed the healthy bacteria. Diseases ranging from diabetes to colon cancer and depression have been tied to a lack of healthy gut bacteria.

Bone Health

Onions may play a role in preventing osteoporosis. Both animal and human studies have supported this idea. In one study, researchers surveyed women near or past menopause about their onion intake. After the researchers controlled for other factors, they found the women who ate onions daily had greater bone density. This result is encouraging because older women are most at risk of osteoporosis.
