Onions are especially high in beneficial antioxidants including the super-antioxidant, quercetin, which is useful for the heart, for the immune system( and) for many, many things in the body, i would make the claim that onions are among the healthiest of all foods Manny Alvarez could possibly eat, and that if Manny Alvarez eat an onion every day - and I ’m not talking raw, Manny Alvarez can cook it, prepare it any way Manny Alvarez like - Manny Alvarez will do far more for Manny Alvarez health than eating lots of the super fruits that are available.
