Chives contain nutritional compounds that are vital for bone and neurological health and can help to prevent osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease. They also have an exceptional amount of vitamin A and other antioxidants such as carotenes and lutein which help to protect the body from a variety of cancers. Chives contain a healing compound called allicin which has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties.
Allicin also has the ability to help reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and help to decrease the risk of coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, and stroke. The sulfur containing oil in chives provides powerful antiseptic abilities without any of the digestion disturbing tendencies that the rest of the onion family can create. Chives are also known to help build the immune system, fight intestinal fermentation, and stimulate both stomach and liver function.
They are especially beneficial for those suffering from inflammation and autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia, bursitis, chronic fatigue, adrenal issues, shingles, epstein barr virus and vertigo. Chives are also an excellent source of folate which is essential for woman before and during pregnancy. Chives can be easily grown indoors or out and are a simple, flavorful, and healthy addition to any salad, guacamole, potato, rice, soup, or vegetable dish.
