Centuries ago, folk healers recommended onions as a heart tonic. Modern science supports this ancient practice. Studies indicate that flavonoids, compounds present in onions, may raise the levels of HDL (‘good’) cholesterol, thus protecting against the artery-clogging damage of LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol. These and onion's sulphur compounds can hinder the formation of blood clots, which may further help protect against heart attacks.
