Benefits of ingredients

# Onions
As healthy food for the heart, onions do not come directly to mind. However, according to a 2007 study published in The Journal of Nutrition, quercetin, which is a flavonoid found in onions, dramatically reduces high blood pressure in hypertensive adults, inhibits hardening of the arteries and keeps the arteries elastic. Onions increase the intake of folic acid, also known as vitamin B9. This vitamin is essential for brain function. They also strengthen the bones and reduce premenstrual symptoms.

#  Olive oil
The predominant fatty acid in olive oil is a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid, which represents 73% of the total oil content.

According to a study conducted by the University of California Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, USA, oleic acid reduces inflammation, and according to another 2006 Spanish study, it can have beneficial effects on genes related to cancer. Monounsaturated fatty acids are also very resistant to high heat, making extra virgin olive oil a healthy choice for cooking.

#  Balsamic vinegar
The main active ingredient in balsamic vinegar is acetic acid, which contains strains of probiotic bacteria. These probiotics provide healthy digestion and improve bowel health. Having these healthy bacteria is also good for the immune system. Probiotic compounds of acetic acid could be one of the reasons why some people have a feeling of satiety.

#  Thyme
Thyme is full of vitamin C and is also a good source of vitamin A. If you suffer from colds, thyme can help you heal quickly. It is also a good source of magnesium, fiber, iron and potassium.
