Benefits of Scallions

  • Aid in weight loss;
  • Help blood clotting;
  • Boost immunity;
  • Enhance heart health;
  • Improve Bone Health;
  • Possibility of blocking cancer growth;

Scallions are overflowing with vitamin K.  Furthermore, just half a cup can even exceed the recommended daily amount of vitamin K. Vitamin K is a beneficial nutrient for many different aspects of health. But it has a critical role in blood clotting. Blood clotting is important in order to prevent excessive bleeding as a result of an injury. If your levels of vitamin K are lower than normal, this can lead to easy bruising and bleeding, typically from the gums or the nose.

Another very important benefit of scallions is their cancer-fighting property.  They contain a compound called allicin. Allicin is known for its cancer prevention ability. In a study from China,  by treating stomach cancer with allicin, it simultaneously stopped the growth of cancer and helped killed off cancer cells.
