Consumption Of Black Onions (fermentation) And Blood-thinning Drugs Together?
my father routinely takes blood-thinning medication, but there are suggestions from you to also consume black onions (fermented garlic) whether if consumed together will be dangerous? What are the benefits of black onion? Can it reduce cholesterol?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Black onion is one type of onion processing through high temperature fermentation, thus making the color black. So this onion is not a new variety of onions, but processed garlic.
Onions with black appearance are suspected to have various kinds of benefits, such as helping prevent cancer, increase endurance, reduce blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol levels. However, so far there have been no studies that test the truth. So regarding your question, we cannot confirm these benefits but of course you can still try them on a daily basis and prove it yourself.
Then regarding whether this onion can interact with blood-thinning drugs, even more research is needed, because not only see whether it is safe for the body, but also must be seen whether there are certain reactions when meeting with chemicals from the drug. Furthermore, blood-thinning drugs also have many types, so if it is safe with one blood-thinning drug, it is not necessarily safe for other blood-thinning drugs.
Therefore, for this question we cannot answer with certainty. Our advice, you still have the right to try it, but if you are in doubt, there are actually many other more conventional but effective ways to reduce cholesterol. Among them are fasting, reducing the intake of fried foods and coconut milk, increasing exercise, increasing water consumption, stopping eating before being full, and not smoking also consuming alcohol. This method will actually be better than the method that is built up can reduce cholesterol in a short time without having to reduce portions and change eating patterns. So, hopefully answering your question.
