Onions are good for health. They are a very good source of vitamin C and B6, iron, folate, and potassium. The Vitamin C and manganese content in onions provides cold and flu relief with its anti-inflammatory abilities. Onion helps to improve immunity, it prevents cancer, improves digestion and is good for hair growth.
