    Interesting, thanks for posting. I guess it's a bad idea to eat onion with meat then.

    Yet it's a staple in many cousines in the world. Onions and garlic.
    I'm never gonna stop eating onions. So good.

    I wonder if it's just concerning non-heme iron or both non-heme and heme

    This may not all be so negative. With such a fear that phytic acid blocks mineral absorption, apparently there are confounding factors that may negate this. As they mentioned, along with increasing zinc and iron, it may also improve absorption of other trace minerals that are very beneficial.

    I am happy reading this.

    No wonder why I respond so well to two onions a day. I originally started to help with Testosterone.

    How you eat that much : ) Do you think the loss of iron is the problem in your case?

    I'm seeing positive changes from onions and garlic. I think, as I already heard it from other forums as well, sulfur has something to do with pssd. And garlic/onion clears my vision. They helps with libido as well.

    Yeah, i just fry them with coconut oil.

    Taste is amazing.

    Yeah you are right, sulfur definitely plays a role somehow.


    Low iron feels TERRIBLE. As soon as I supplement with iron (Despite eating high iron foods), I feel significantly better overall.
