One of the things that we are proud of is that our food is grown on living soil that not only provides soul-satisfying flavour but most of all offer natural therapeutic and healing remedies. Red onions for example are often valued highly for its flavour . Our weekly harvest offerings include red and white onions  which our subscribers love so much.  Our own research  showed that red onions are packed with quercetin that keeps free radicals at bay.

Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that is particularly well suited for scavenging free radicals. Aside from its antioxidant properties, quercetin has been found to possess cancer-fighting, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It has shown promising potential for preventing and controlling the formation of intestinal polyps, suppressing the rhinoviruses that are the underlying cause of common cold, treating psoriasis, and inhibiting the replication of viruses including the herpes simplex virus that can cause cold sores. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of  stomach cancer: according to one study, half an onion a day could reduce the risk of stomach cancer by 50%.

Organic red onions are available weekly at TheVillageGreenShop.
