I told my brother and his wife about the secret of onions soaked in red wine after I came back to the States. They laughed, but were eager to try it out because all the ingredients were cheap.

My wife and I decided to join them. After drinking this wine for a few weeks, we all noticed some improvements, such as not going to the bathroom multiple times during the night. We’d like to pass this recipe of onions soaked in red wine on to other folks, and hope that it helps you too.
