3 Ways Fennel Seed Can Improve Your Health

Fennel seed is often an overlooked spice. Despite its strong presence in most sausages and Mediterranean cuisine, it isn’t typically viewed as a go-to spice. However, it does have some amazing health benefits.

A Dietary Fiber Source

With over 100% of your daily recommended dose of dietary fiber, fennel packs a punch right where it counts – your gut. Gut health is an integral component to your overall well-being. Ingesting the proper amount of fiber each day helps regulate your bowels and cleanses your gut from any harmful toxins. Constipation is no opponent for fennel either. Sip on fennel tea to help reduce signs of constipation.

Ease Breathing

Chewing on small doses of fennel is thought to alleviate symptoms of asthma and clear sinuses. With the growing popularity of essential oils, fennel is now available in oil form. Some prefer using fennel seed oil to make breathing easier. The oil provides an immediate relief and gives off a sweet licorice scent.

Brighten your Skin

Fennel is packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin E, both known for their positive impact on skin health and elasticity. Work small doses of fennel into your diet and you’ll soon see the suppleness of your skin improve.

Using Fennel Seed at Home

There are a number of ways you can incorporate fennel seed into you diet and into your daily life. Fennel seed tea, fennel seed oil, and plain old fennel seed can be added to any recipe. Be cautious with your consumption however, as large amounts of fennel seed, as well as large amounts of anything, can lead to certain side effects for some people.

For a savory, sweet anise flavor, add fennel to cottage cheese or ricotta cheese the next time you’re making lasagna. If you’re a vegetarian and miss the flavor of meat, try grinding up fennel and adding it to salad dressing. It’ll taste like you’re biting into a juicy piece of sausage rather than an earthy piece of kale.
