You’ll Never Throw Another Onion Skin Away After Reading This

This article is dedicated to the amazing antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic and medical properties of onion skins, which may come to you as a surprise but it’s true.
Some very interesting information has recently surfaced about the amazing health benefits of onion skins and the high amount of nutritional ingredients they contain. It’s been discovered that onion skins are a rich source of fibers, flavonoids, and vitamins A, C and E. Among the flavonoids we must mention quercetin, which is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. The onion skins are the richest source of quercetin, which has the ability to lower your blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels and eliminate arterial plaque buildup.

Consuming onion skins can reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, colon cancer and gastrointestinal problems.

Here’s how you can use the onion skins to make a tea:

Peel an onion and store the skins in a jar. Pour boiling hot water over the skins and leave them to soak for 15 minutes. Strain the onion skins and drink the tea every night before you go to bed. It’s best to consume it before you go to bed because quercetin is actually a mild sedative so it will help you fall asleep.

Warning: Onion skins are not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Aside from making tea you can use the skins to make a soup or a stew. Since they’re not edible you should remove them before you serve the soup but you’ll still reap all the benefits.

Studies have even shown that onion skins are rich in dietary fibers, which makes them an ideal addition to your diet. They contain insoluble fibers which help you have normal and regular bowel movements, remove the toxic waste from your organism and preserve optimal pH levels in your intestines.

This prevents microbes from forming cancerous cells. Eating fiber also helps reduce the risk cardiovascular disease, colon cancer, obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Other uses for onion skins:
● Onion skins can be used as a skin wash if you’re experiencing skin problems. They contain antioxidants which invigorate and rejuvenate your skin.
● They can also be used for hair care as well. Make an onion skin broth and rinse your hair with it. Your hair will be smoother and silkier.
I believe we’ve given you enough information to convince you not to throw away the onion skins ever again. Why throw it away when it can be so beneficial for your entire body?
