The researchers revealed that a compound called rutin, which is extracted from onions, was found to improve blood pressure, reverse fat stores and glucose problems as well as repair liver damage in mice.

The study, led by Professor Lindsay Brown along with Hemant Poudyal and Sunil K Panchal, will be published in next issue of the Journal of Nutrition.

I thought only garlic can lower blood pressure. Now it seems that its partner, the onion, can lower blood pressure, too! More reason to use these two in our dishes.
