Onions do not have as good of a reputation as garlic when it comes to being a heart-friendly food, but it has a very similar nutrient profile, including the same active ingredient, allicin. This substance is a powerful antioxidant that also works to directly balance the cholesterol levels in your body. Given that the risk of acute coronary syndrome, more commonly known as a heart attack, is increased by cholesterol levels, so anything that can reduce those levels is important. You can simply add onions to your daily diet or drink pure onion juice for best results.
