Onion health benefits

While onions may bring a tear to your eye and give you a bad breath, they also have plenty of health benefits. The onion has been used as an ingredient in various dishes for thousands of years. I love all onions and anything remotely related to the onion family. I have to have onions in everything and I can eat them like apples. 
Onions are good sources of vitamins (vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E) and that means, they are good for the system. They are also high in iron (red onions in particular have the highest concentrations of iron).
Oh magical onions.  :-)

Extra tip: 
Onion is known for its skin lightening properties. Slice a red onion and rub on the dark spots. The juice of onion will impart its bleaching action and help lighten the dark spots. Onion is also an exfoliating agent and will help in removing the surface layers of skin to reveal the new and clearer skin underneath. Apply onion two times a day and leave it on without washing.

To get full benefits, always try to eat raw onion. Also, to ward off the bad-breath side effects, consume a bit of parsley, which has been proven to fight off some of the effects of bad breath.
Important - onions should be stored in a well ventilated space at room temperature, away from heat and bright light.
