Wellness Tip: Fennel seeds

The Memorial Hospital

Fennel seed is an edible, licorice-flavored spice that is commonly found in Mediterranean dishes. Fennel seeds provide an aromatic flavor to foods. They can also be chewed raw.

Fennel seeds contain anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, which are known to be preventative measures for chronic disease. Fennel seeds are high in fiber, calcium and iron, all of which are also essential for wellness and prevention of chronic disease. Chewing fennel seeds after a meal may aide in digestion and ease gastrointestinal discomfort.
