Hooray for the Onion

20 grams fresh onion three times per day. Preliminary trials and at least one double-blind trial have shown that large amounts of onion an can lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. The mechanism of onion's blood sugar-lowering action is not precisely known, though there is evidence that constituents in onions block the breakdown of insulin in the liver. This would lead to higher levels of insulin in the body.
