Fennel is an aromatic herb used as a condiment and flavouring in cooking. The seeds of this herb have medicinal properties, and they have been used for years in natural medicine.
They contain anethole, calcium, camphene, cymene, volatile oils, and oleic acid. They have carminative, soothing, and stimulating properties. They are an excellent digestive aid and are especially effective against intestinal gas. The volatile oils that are found in this herb absorb intestinal gas.
They stimulate digestion, promoting the functions of the spleen, liver, and kidneys, as well as the secretion of bile. They normalize gastrointestinal activity, maintaining tone in the gastrointestinal tract. They relieve intestinal spasms and bloating due to gas. They are used for heartburn and indigestion. They work both in adults and children, especially to prevent and relieve colic in children.
Recent studies show that fennel has an antifungal, antibacterial, and antiyeast activity against many pathogenic organisms.
Women that are breast-feeding will find fennel helpful for the baby, since this herb will aid the baby to expel gas and to prevent colic. It calms upset stomach and abdominal pain.
