Benefits

Fennel has long been used as a remedy for flatulence and indigestion in traditional medicines. This is thought to be because it can soothe the muscles that line the digestive tract, making digestion more effective, as well as kill harmful bacteria and reduce stomach spasms. Fennel seeds contain numerous flavonoid anti-oxidants like kaempferol and quercetin. These compounds function as powerful anti-oxidants by removing harmful free radicals from the body.
