Onions are part of the allium family of vegetables and herbs, which also includes chives, garlic, scallions and leeks. They vary in size, shape and color, as well as flavor, and the most common types are red, yellow and white onion. Onions are a low calorie, nutrient dense food, packed with antioxidants. The folate found in onions may help with depression by preventing an excess of homocysteine from forming in the body. Excess homocysteine interferes with the production of the feel-good hormones serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, which regulate not only mood, but also sleep and appetite as well.
