Bahar Dried Chive 20g
A source of vitamin K
Chives contain vitamin K, which is important for bone health and blood clotting. Other sources of vitamin K include leafy green vegetables, vegetable oils, and fruits including blueberries and figs.
Chives also contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which are carotenoids. According to some research, lutein and zeaxanthin accumulate in the retina of the eye to help prevent age-related macular degeneration. This means that eating foods rich in these substances could benefit eyesight.
Some studies into allium vegetables and their organic compounds, such as allicin, suggest a positive relationship with certain health conditions.
For example, one study indicated a potentially positive relationship between garlic and health conditions such as heart disease and high blood sugar. Garlic may also have antitumor and antimicrobial effects.
Though no research has connected chives with inflammation, one 2015 study reported that garlic may reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is linked with various health conditions, including heart disease and several cancers.
