In today's time, the problem of diabetes is increasing very fast. Obesity is considered to be the main reason behind the increase in diabetes. The main symptoms of diabetes include feeling thirsty, tired and frequent urination. When there is a problem of diabetes, the blood sugar level in the body starts increasing. In such a situation, it is necessary to keep the blood sugar level under control. When there is diabetes, the level of blood sugar starts increasing in the body. When we eat food, our body gets glucose from it. This glucose is used by the cells to provide energy to the body. If there is no insulin in the body, it cannot do its work properly. Due to which the cells do not get glucose.
This glucose starts accumulating in our blood. In such a situation, today we are going to tell you about such a thing that can help in controlling your blood sugar level.Principal investigator Anthony Ojih of Delta State University in Abraca said onions are very cheap and easy to get. There are many nutrients in onions, which can be used to treat diabetic patients. An animal study looked at the effects of different doses of onion juice on three different groups of diabetic rats. In this, rats were fed 400 and 600 mg/kg onion juice daily. After feeding it, the blood sugar level of the rats was checked and it was found that there was a drop of 50 to 35 percent in the blood sugar level.
Mr. Ojih explained that we investigated the mechanism by which onions can lower blood sugar levels, but we don't have an explanation yet. Quercetin and Sulfur lower blood sugar levels. Both of these have properties to reduce diabetes. Quercetin, which is a flavonoid, helps lower blood sugar levels throughout the body. A medical paper published in the journal Current Medicinal Chemistry explained that flavonoids are a large group of polyphenols that are widely present in the human diet. Due to the anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties found in quercetin, it is believed that it can treat many diseases including diabetes. Studies have also suggested that quercetin and sulfur can help control cholesterol levels.
Apart from this, it has also been found that the anti-inflammatory properties present in vegetables can also help in reducing high blood pressure and protect against blood clotting. In such a situation, consuming onions can prove to be very beneficial for high cholesterol patients. Due to all these qualities, onion can prove beneficial in preventing heart patients and cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.
