The nutrient profile and chemical composition of onions is very similar to garlic, although onions don’t get the same amount of credit as an effective natural remedy. Onions possess high levels of quercetin, an antioxidant that can directly inhibit the release of histamines and other inflammatory compounds in the body. Bronchial congestion is characterized by inflammation of the mucus lining in the throat and respiratory tracts, so preventing the release of these inflammatory compounds can ease breathing and speed up the healing process. Onion juice mixed with water is a popular remedy, despite the bad breath!
