Onions are high in protective phytonutrients, vitamins, and unique anti-inflammatory nutrients. Also, they are low in saturated fat, sodium, and cholesterol. Being so high in nutrients makes them ideal for weight loss and maintaining optimum health. Onions are so healthy we put them in the Superfood category.

To get the most health benefits from Garlic, let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, after cutting and before eating or cooking. Waiting for 5 – 10 minutes allows the health-promoting allicin to form. If you do not let it sit, allicin is never formed, so it is worth the wait. Add some garlic to your soups, stews, and salad dressing recipes to lower high cholesterol. Sometimes it is easier to use some Organic Freeze Dried Garlic so no chopping and peeling.
