Not only are onions a tasty addition to any dish, they possess incredible properties in regards to oral health. Raw onion is incredibly healthy for you, and as an added bonus to any dish, the antibacterial sulphur compounds contained in an onion will kill the harmful bacteria on your teeth. Onions are notable for their antibacterial properties. Consuming raw onions is a great way to benefit from the bacteria fighting properties, and add a bite to any dish. It is also said that chewing a raw onion, or rubbing a bit of raw onion on a sore tooth can alleviate toothache until you consult a dental professional. However, after all the onion consumption- a piece of minty gum is reccommended !
