The bulbs are composed of shortened, compressed, underground stems surrounded by fleshy modified scale (leaves) that envelop a central bud at the tip of the stem. In the autumn (or in spring), the foliage dies down and the outer layers of the bulb become dry and brittle. The crop is then harvested and dried and the onions are ready for use or storage.

Health Benefits of Onion
  • Prevents DiabetesA single serving of onions contains 27% of your biotin DRI. Biotin has many positive impacts on your health, one of which is combating symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes. Early research suggests that a combination of biotin and chromium might help regulate blood sugar and even decrease insulin resistance.
  • Healthy Skin: Biotin is also important in maintaining healthy skin. It is used to treat brittle nails, prevent hair loss (although research is still ongoing as to its effectiveness in this regard) and maintain skin health.
  • Improved Immunity: Onions contain both vitamin C and photochemical that increases the effectiveness of vitamin C in your body. What does that mean? A healthier, more effective immune system, that’s what.
  • Prevents CancerQuercetin is more than just a funny looking word. It’s also a plant flavonoid (another funny word that means plant pigment) that possesses potent antioxidants, which fight against cancer-causing free radicals. Free radicals are chemical compounds that damage cell membranes and cause cell death. Onions are rich in quercetin and thus are a powerful weapon in the war against cancer.
  • Relieves StressQuercetin doesn’t stop there. It also helps protect your body against stress. When you are stressed out your body produces cortical. While cortisol is totally normal, too much of it can damage muscle tissue and cause protein breakdown in the body. That’s where quercetin-rich onions come in. During times of prolonged stress, quercetin suppresses enzyme required for cortisol release. Next time you have a stressful deadline to meet at work, bring along a few raw onions to snack on!
  • Lowers Cholesterol: Raw onion also promotes production of HDL which is the good cholesterol that you need to stay healthy.
  • Anti-Inflammatory: Onions have anti-inflammatory properties help those who suffer from joint pain and arthritis. But the benefits of betalain is not limited to those with swollen joints; all disease is rooted in chronic inflammation, and, therefore, everyone should seek out foods with anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Lowers Blood Pressure: The sulfur in onions acts as a natural blood thinner and it prevents blood platelets from collecting. This is good for lowering blood pressure and preventing risk of heart attack or stroke, because you are more susceptible if blood platelets clog up. And remember quercetin? Of course you do. Well it also helps prevent plaque buildup in arteries which is also good for preventing heart attack and stroke.
  • Digestion: Onions are high in fiber, which is good for maintaining a healthy and regular digestive system. Fiber prevents digestive pain and breaks down food can keep it moving.

Bone Density: Onions bolster bone density for older women. One study found that menopausal women who incorporated onions into their diet had a 20% lower risk of health disease.

Benefits Of Onion!

Onions are incredibly common vegetables, and we often overlook the impressive health benefits that they provide. Onions have a similar nutrient profile to garlic, as well as the active ingredient, allicin, which affects our bodies in many different ways. Onion juice has been known as a natural remedy for angina and other cardiovascular issues, and it can quickly reduce cholesterol levels if taken on a daily basis. Extracting onion juice and drinking it directly may not seem like the most appealing remedy or preventative measure for angina, but it has been proven to work!

प्याज के फायदे - Benefits of Onion in Hindi

प्राचीन काल से प्याज को उपचारात्मक मूल्य के लिए जाना जाता है। हैज़ा और प्लेग के महामारी के दौरान प्याज को ऐतिहासिक रूप से एक निवारक दवा के रूप में इस्तेमाल किया गया था। प्याज सिर्फ एक स्वादिष्ट पाक पौधों से कहीं ज़्यादा है, इसमें प्राकृतिक चीनी, विटामिन ए, बी 6, सी और ई और सोडियम, पोटेशियम, लोहा और आहार फाइबर जैसी खनिज शामिल हैं। प्याज फोलिक एसिड का भी एक अच्छा स्रोत है।
प्याज, जिसे बल्ब प्याज या सामान्य प्याज के रूप में भी जाना जाता है, एक सब्जी है और जीनस एलियम की सबसे व्यापक प्रजाति है। स्वास्थ्य विशेषज्ञ इस तथ्य को स्वीकार करते हैं कि प्याज चिरकारी अस्थमा, एलर्जी ब्रोंकाइटिस, आम सर्दी से संबंधित खांसी और ठंडे सिंड्रोम वाले रोगियों के लिए महान राहत प्रदान करते हैं।

प्याज के लाभ

1. मधुमेह को रोकता है:

2. बेहतर प्रतिरक्षा के लिए:
प्याज में महत्वपूर्ण मात्रा में मौजूद फाइटोकेमिकल्स शरीर के भीतर विटामिन सी के उत्तेजक के रूप में कार्य करते हैं। जब आप प्याज खाते हैं तो विटामिन सी और आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली की प्रभावकारीता बढ़ जाती है, क्योंकि यह आपके प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को विषाक्त पदार्थों और विभिन्न विदेशी निकायों से लड़ने में बेहतर कर देता है जो रोग और बीमारी को जन्म दे सकते हैं। यह विषाक्त पदार्थों और विभिन्न विदेशी निकायों के खिलाफ आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को सुपरचार्ज करता है।

3. मौखिक स्वास्थ्य के लिए:
दांत अक्सर दाँत क्षय और मौखिक संक्रमणों को रोकने के लिए उपयोग किया जाता है। कच्चे प्याज 2 से 3 मिनट के लिए चबाने से मौखिक क्षेत्र में और गले और होंठ जैसे आसपास के स्थानों में मौजूद सभी रोगाणुओं को संभावित रूप से मार सकते हैं।

4. स्वस्थ त्वचा के लिए:
स्वस्थ त्वचा को बनाए रखने में भी बायोटिन महत्वपूर्ण है। मुंह के लक्षणों के उपचार के लिए शहद या जैतून का तेल के साथ मिश्रित प्याज का रस सबसे अच्छा इलाज माना जाता है। प्याज भी सूजन-विरोधी सब्जी है, इसलिए प्याज में सक्रिय यौगिकों लाल और सूजन को कम कर सकती हैं जो आमतौर पर मुँहासे जैसी त्वचा की स्थिति से जुड़ी होती हैं। यह गाउट और गठिया जैसे स्थितियों से जुड़ा दर्द और सूजन को कम करने में भी मदद करता है।

5. खांसी का उपचार:
प्याज के रस और शहद के बराबर मिश्रण से ग्रस्त गले और खाँसी के लक्षणों को दूर करने में मदद मिल सकती है।

6. कैंसर को रोकता है:
प्याज क्वरसिटिन में समृद्ध है, जो एक बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सीडेंट यौगिक है जो लगातार रोकथाम या कैंसर के प्रसार को कम करने से जुड़ा हुआ है। विटामिन सी भी एक मजबूत एंटीऑक्सीडेंट है, जिससे पूरे शरीर में मुक्त कणों की मौजूदगी और प्रभाव कम हो सकता है।

7. यौन स्वास्थ्य के लिए:
प्याज एक स्वस्थ यौन जीवन को प्राप्त करने में मदद करने के लिए जाना जाता है। 

8. हड्डी के स्वास्थ्य के लिए:
प्याज को गुड़ और पानी के साथ खाने से भी ऊष्मीय स्थिति में सुधार किया जा सकता है, क्योंकि यह शरीर की खनिज सामग्री में विशेष रूप से लोहे को जोड़ता है, जो कि नए लाल रक्त कोशिकाओं के उत्पादन का एक अनिवार्य हिस्सा है।

9. पाचन के लिए:
प्याज में अधिक फाइबर है, जो स्वस्थ और नियमित पाचन तंत्र को बनाए रखने के लिए अच्छा है। फाइबर पाचन दर्द को भी रोकता है।

प्याज के दुष्प्रभाव:
प्याज  की  वजह  से सबसे  आम  समस्याएं  हैं:

1. प्याज  मधुमेह रोगियों के  रक्त  के  स्तर  को  बहुत  कम  कर  सकते  है।
2. प्याज के अत्यधिक खपत के कारण गैस्ट्रोइंटेस्टाइनल असुविधा हो सकती है।
3. प्याज को गर्भवती या नर्सिंग महिलाओं में हृद्दाह पैदा करने के लिए जाना जाता है।
4. प्याज का अतिरिक्त सेवन आंत के उचित कार्यप्रणाली में बाधा पहुंचा सकता है और अक्सर विभिन्न स्वास्थ्य मुद्दों जैसे गैस, ब्लोटिंग, उल्टी खराबी आदि के लिए रास्ता तैयार करता है।
5. कुछ लोगों को प्याज से एलर्जी हो सकती है और इसके रस को त्वचा पे लगाने से त्वचा की जलन, त्वचा पर दाने, त्वचा की लाली या साँस लेने में कठिनाई हो सकती है।

Top Most Nutrient-Dense Prebiotic Foods

Top most nutrient-dense prebiotic foods
 
1. Asparagus

Asparagus is packed with fiber, folate and other b vitamins, and even have 4 grams of protein per 8 stalks. Eat it grilled, sauteed, raw, or even sneak it in your green smoothie if you're super brave. It has a naturally sweet taste and is also a natural diuretic to beat bloating.

2. Bananas

Almost everyone loves bananas, including your gut! bananas both soothe the gut membrane and also contain natural fibers that promote good bacteria growth. This is one reason they may cause some mild rumbling. For easier digestion, be sure that you choose riper bananas instead of yellowish greenish bananas. Those may be higher in starch and harder to digest, while the spotted ones seem to digest a bit more easy, despite being higher in natural sugars. All bananas are great sources of potassium b vitamins, and even offer vitamin c as well. Use them frozen in smoothies, cream them into a raw pie or cake, or just snack on them raw before your next workout.

3. Onions

The cheapest, most delicious way to flavor your food (and a wonderfully natural one) is also great for your digestion! onions contain a natural source of inulin which the gut uses to clean house and up the good bacteria during the process. Onions are also packed with antioxidants and can be used in any savory recipe you choose. If raw onions give you indigestion, give yours a light saute or boil before using to break down some of the sugars. See these tips for choosing the best onion for your recipes.

4. Garlic

Garlic is a rich source of inulin as well as a great antibacterial agent. It packs two punches in one by kicking out the bad guys and feeding the good guys. Garlic is a cheap way to flavor your foods and also a great source of vitamin b6 to aid in metabolism and nervous system health. It's a real superfood your whole body loves! try it in a veggie stir-fry, hummus, or saute into your next batch of rice or soup.

5. Cabbage

Cabbage is a versatile, cheap prebiotic food you can do almost anything with. Its natural prebiotics are the reason it is used in sauerkraut and kimchi as the base. Feel free to use raw cabbage wraps for sandwiches, make cabbage soup, or make a healthy dairy-free coleslaw if you wish. Cabbage is also packed with b vitamins, alkalizing minerals, and offers up a good source of vitamin c.

6. Beans

Known as a strong digestive booster, beans are packed with oligosaccharides that feed good gut bacteria (which is one reason they're problematic for some). Though the gurgling is a good sign, it can be a little potent for new bean eaters. Soak your beans overnight and cook them extremely well (almost overdone if you need to), or add them slowly into your diet a day so your body can adapt. Beans are a good source of potassium, protein, and high in fiber so work them into your diet if you can, but if not, choose some legumes (below) instead.

7. Legumes

A bit easier to digest than beans, but just as nutritious, legumes such as lentils, chickpeas, and green peas are all excellent choices of protein, iron, and b vitamins. They're filled with just the right amount of fiber and natural sugars to boost good gut bacteria, but a bit lighter on the stomach. For easier digestion, soak your lentils, or use presoaked canned (bpa-free) versions instead. Red lentils are especially thin and easier to digest than other varieties and also a bit sweeter, so you may not need to soak them. Frozen peas are also a good alternative to raw peas and don't need to be soaked either. Edamame and other legumes are also great choices.

8. Bran

Whether it be oat, wheat, rice or another type of bran, pure bran is full of insoluble fiber that feeds good gut bacteria. It helps regularity and also reduces cholesterol. Be sure to choose organic bran when possible to avoid genetically modified grains or go with a company that's certified non-gmo. Oat bran lends a particularly awesome creamy texture to normal oatmeal, but with all grains, be sure you choose mostly whole varieties since the bran is only part of the entire grain. Bran can be added to muffin recipes, porridge, or used in healthy cookie recipes for a creamy, nutty, and fibrous texture.

9. Artichokes

Artichokes are fantastic for your gut! they're packed with fiber and very low in net carbohydrates. This makes them lower on the glycemic index and helpful for your blood sugar. If you choose canned artichoke hearts for ease of use (such as in salads and soups), go with a bpa-free version when possible. Whole artichokes and canned artichoke hearts can both be used in various recipes and are remarkable detox foods.

10. Leeks

Leeks are also another food to add to your list of healthy flavoring options. A member of the onion family, leeks are versatile and easy to cook with, despite looking intimidating. Leeks are commonly used in soups and stocks but can also be cut and sauteed in stir-fries as well. They're rich in the same benefits as onions though a bit milder in taste and higher in chlorophyll.

11. Roasted-veg

Root veggies pack a good bit of soluble fiber that your gut loves. Sweet potatoes, squash, wild yams, jicama, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips, and other root veggies are all great choices. Cook them however you like and enjoy their easy-to-digest, naturally cleansing nature.

 
12. Apples

Apples are fantastic foods for your heat and brain due to their antioxidant content, but their natural pectin fiber is the reason they're so great for your gut. Pectin feeds good bacteria and apples are also a good source of inulin and natural fos (a beneficial type of sugar that feeds the gut). Apples are also good for keeping you full and warding off high cholesterol.
