You might have heard about cleansing your face. Did you ever think of cleansing your blood? Yes! An onion can cleanse your blood.
Medical science has established that there are over 7,000 nerves in your foot that are in contact with your entire body. That’s why putting an onion in your sock can do wonders for more than just your feet.
Once you’ve placed the onion in your sock, it will cleanse your entire body. It will suck the bacteria and germs out of your body, and because the skin on your feet is very thin, the good bacteria and chemicals are absorbed in your blood quicker. That way, the onion also cleanses your blood.
Onions contain antioxidants and compounds that fight inflammation, decrease triglycerides and reduce cholesterol levels — all of which may lower heart disease risk. Their anti-inflammatory properties may also help reduce high blood pressure and protect against blood clots. Onions are an excellent source of antioxidants. In fact, they contain over 25 different varieties of flavonoid antioxidants.
Eating onions may help control blood sugar, which is especially significant for people with diabetes or prediabetes. Onions can also help support bone health. Moreover, onions are a rich source of fiber and prebiotics, which are necessary for optimal gut health.
