How Onion Juice Promotes Hair Growth
A study done in 2002 on patients with Alopecia Areata found a remarkable benefit of onion juice. 23 patients had their scalp treated with onion juice twice daily for two months, while 15 others were treated with simple tap water.
After just 1 month, 73.9% of patients treated with onion juice experienced hair regrowth. After six weeks, this number jumped to 86.9%.
Male participants proved to benefit from the onion juice treatment the most, with 93.7% showing positive hair regrowth. Only 71.4% of female participants showed positive hair regrowth.
This study was relatively small, with a total of 38 participants. However, the number of participants that experienced hair regrowth is impossible to ignore.
Health Benefits of Onions
The onion is a part of the Allium family, rich in sulfur and a huge boon to a healthy diet. Sulfur-rich foods like onions and garlic are fantastic for boosting L-cysteine levels, a critical precursor for our body’s Glutathione production. Helping to promote a strong immune system, liver function and total body health.
Onions are also a great source of manganese, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin B1, B6, C and folate.
Almost everyone can agree that onions are a hugely important piece of a healthy diet, a super-food with a vast number of health benefits. But it doesn’t stop there, it can also help you maintain your hairline and promote a rich, full and healthy head of hair.
