Blood-thinning onion soup

Onions are super heart friendly. Onions thin blood, reduce blood pressure, and improve micro-circulation. They stimulate body flow of fluids. That’s why you cry while cutting onions.

Onions are rubefacients, meaning they cause dilation of capillaries and increase blood circulation.
