Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell and on
behalf of Expert Village today I’m going to talk to you about cholesterol and in particular
ways to lower your cholesterol intake because cholesterol is specifically the bad form of
cholesterol the LDL is the major contributing factor to a lot of cardiovascular diseases
like stroke and heart attacks. Now in this clip we are going to talk about the really
mundane but really healthy vegetable the onion. Now here I have half a piece of onion that’s
cut up and this is the yellow type of onion. You can get several different varieties of
onion. The red type as well and onion has many, many good properties to help your cholesterol,
fight your cholesterol level. Now here I’ve written down several properties of onions.
Now onions possess a compound called quercetin. Quercetin is a very powerful antioxidant and
what it does is it prevents LDL to deposit in the arteries and also onions contain a
sulphur compounds which will help to increase the good cholesterol the HDL. Now in specifically
red and yellow onion which I’ve shown here. This is the yellow one but the red one has
the red skin. The really, really red purply skin. They contain a very powerful anitoxidant
called flavonoids. So the more onions that you eat and preferably if you eat onions raw
if you can bear the very pungent smell and the odor then you are going to actually ingest
a high level of the good properties of the quercetin and the flavonoids. And that would
help you to at least decrease the level of LDL intake into your body. So onions is actually
a wonderful vegetable you should increase that in your diet.

  1. There is NO proof that dietary cholesterol causes heart disease; none, zero!
    Studies are NOT proof of anything; they are BELIEF and nothing else. So why are you worried about cholesterol?

    Why aren't you worried about long toe nails, because it has been shown that people who have died of heart disease had long toe nails when their autopsy was done.

  2. @margff Yes apparatly onions are generally acidic. That applies to the juicy parts which I believe includes onion plup. I.E. The whole onion except for the skin. I have not tested onions my self with litmus paper but other foods I have and from a general studie i can concure with findings on the internet that onions (except dry skin) are logically acidic. The same internet data can be seen by searching "What is the PH of onions". I hope this answeres your question & is helpful.

  3. Is there any information about how "Quercertin prevents LDL deposition in the arteries". I understand that to increase onion intake in the diat my help to reduce the intake of LDA but is there some biological or chemical way that once both LDL and Quercertin are injested that the quercertin prevents deposits of LDL? Does Quercertin combine in the digestive system with LDL to alter the chemical structure or what is the mecanics of this. Thanks. Sorry if I my question is too advanced.
