Red onion is mostly popular because of phytochemicals, which are important because they boost our immune system. Red onion is also a rich source of vitamin K, B6, and C, but at the same time, the phytochemicals act as a stimulant to vitamin C within the body. Fiber from red onion helps in functioning of the digestive tract, and it helps prevent constipation. Red onion is rich in minerals, too: it has folate, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and manganese.
Among others health benefits, red onions contain antioxidants, flavonoids. Antioxidants are important because they are fighting the free radicals. Free radicals (toxic organic waste) are considered dangerous because they can cause cancer by mutating the DNA.

Studies showed that one-half of onion on a daily basis could reduce the risk of stomach cancer by 50%
