Eggs and Onions

eggsandonions

Now, this might sound a bit strange, but both eggs and onions

are a must food for people who have high blood pressure or

cardiac problems trend in your families.  No, you do not need to eat them together.

 There is a peptide in eggs, especially egg whites, that reduces blood pressure

as effectively as a low dose of medication. This peptide blocks a substance

in the body that hikes blood pressure.

1/3 cup of onions daily, (any kind, raw or cooked) cut blood pressure

some 21% in a five week study. Onions are rich in quercetin,

a natural diuretic that lowers pressure by flushing out excess fluids and salts.
