Mind the quantity of onions you eat, it could have these side effects

Avoid eating too many onions, as they may cause these negative effects.

One of the most widely consumed vegetables in the world is the onion. Although it was originally grown in Central Asia, this round vegetable is now found around the world, including Nigeria. While onions have numerous health benefits, over use of onions might have detrimental consequences. When you eat a lot of onions, you'll experience the following adverse effects:

In people with acid reflux, onions are one of the foods that exacerbate their symptoms, whether it's an occasional flare-up or a long-term condition like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). You may want to avoid onions if you frequently get heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Heartburn, a condition in which stomach acid rises into the esophagus, is a common onion adverse effect. This results in a burning sensation in the chest, as well as soreness in the throat and a sour taste in the mouth.

Over-the-counter antacids can be helpful if you feel heartburn after eating onions

Irritable bowel disorder, or IBS, is a common and frustrating digestive disorder. Onions have been shown to increase cases of IBS. Bloating, cramping, diarrhea, or constipation are all possible side effects of this condition, which affects the large intestine. Intestinal damage from this disorder is unlikely, but it can be debilitating and even life-threatening for certain people.

For women, IBS is more common, and it is most common in adults under the age of 45. The symptoms of IBS are typically exacerbated by triggers such as stress and particular meals. Onion is one of those foods that can cause a reaction.

Garlic and shallots are also part of the allium family, which is why onions aggravate foul breath. Sulfuric compounds are produced by this vegetable family and enter your bloodstream when they are digested. When you consume a lot of onions, you may realize that your entire body and your sweat smell a little bit like onions.
