 Onions are Effective in Reducing High Blood Pressure

Researchers at the University of Southern Queensland have revealed that a chemical present in onions can prove to be effective in reducing the risk of diabetes and high blood pressure and also help in regulating weight.

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.
