Leek or pearl onion is the most widespread and indispensable vegetable in the whole world. therefore, in this article, I decided to summarize its beneficial properties.
As a rule, in cooking, leeks are used as a seasoning that can give a dish a special taste. The first property is excellent seasoning.
Onions have a huge amount of organic sulfur content (because of this they have such a smell!), Thanks to which they have the main medicinal properties - they fight viruses, even Salmonella and Escherichia coli are subject to it. Here are some more reasons for eating leeks:
- it is necessary to remove toxins from the body;
- lower blood cholesterol levels;
- prevent the appearance of blood clots;
- with infections, asthma, diabetes mellitus, chronic bronchitis.
So, the second property is healing.
Leeks are increasingly used for weight loss. It is included in the diet during a diet, due to its low calorie content (only 30 kcal per 100 g), and at the same time contains a lot of vitamins. This was the third property - dietary, so to speak.
There were only three main properties, but if you look at it, you can find not 3, but 333 properties of leeks, and all will be useful.
