Onions commonly known as “pyaz” in Indian households not only have distinct aroma but also have several health benefits to offer. We all know onions are loaded with many chemicals that help you keep many diseases at bay. But did you know this pungent smelling food can help in curing asthma too?
There are two varieties of onions- white and red. The red onions are considered one of the best cures for asthma as they are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, they also contain vitamin C, sulphur compounds, anti-bacterial and anti viral properties.
Even studies have shown that red onions have several compounds such as thiosulphinate, qucercetin and anthocyanin cyanidin in form of flavnoids and antioxidants, which make red onions one of the best cures for asthma and allergies.
Adults should take a tablespoon of this mixture while children should take only a teaspoon before each meal until the time you have the symptoms.
