Prized by the Egyptians as far back as 3500 B.C., the onion symbolized eternity because of its concentric-circle construction.
Onions are rich in powerful sulfuric compounds, responsible for their pungent odor and for irritating our eyes. Studies suggest that the phytochemicals and the flavonoid, quercetin, in onions may lower high blood pressure, reduce heart attack risk, and even help protect against cancer.
One large raw onion has only 63 calories, is made up of more than a cup of water, and provides up to 20% of your daily requirement of vitamin C.
