Yes, onion is considered a detox food. However, we need to understand that onion by itself does not detox the body. It indirectly helps in the detoxification process in the following way:

·               Onion has sulphur containing compounds, which are essential for liver   function.

·               The liver is the organ that detoxifies the body from chemicals and environmental toxins that are present in the body.

·               Thus, consuming onion increases the sulphur containing compounds, which in turn helps the liver to remove the toxins.
