Fennel benefits

In Ayurvedic medicine, fennel is used to relieve digestive ailments such as bloating or flatulence, but also to relieve eye ailments. Cough, but also diarrhea or constipation can be treated with the help of fennel.

Here are the health benefits of fennel:
  • Fennel can strengthen the bone system
Due to its high calcium content, fennel keeps bones healthy, increasing their density. Both phosphorus and magnesium in fennel are beneficial for the bone system.
  • It helps regulate blood pressure
The consumption of fennel can help reduce blood pressure, due to the high potassium content, but also the low sodium content. A diet higher in potassium can reduce high blood pressure.
  • It stimulates digestion and regulates acidity
Fennel contains plenty of fiber, so it stimulates intestinal transit. The dietary fiber in this vegetable fights constipation and eases the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Fennel extract reduces bloating and intestinal spasms and helps maintain the balance of intestinal bacterial flora. And patients suffering from gastroesophageal reflux especially benefit from the consumption of fennel, as this vegetable balances the pH in the stomach, thus reducing hyperacidity.
  • It can improve memory
Choline, which is found in fennel, is necessary for a restful sleep, for muscle function, but also for improving memory and learning ability.
  • It stimulates the metabolism
Fennel is a rich source of vitamin B6, which means it boosts metabolism, helping to convert carbohydrates and proteins into glucose and amino acids. Also, fennel can help you lose weight because it is rich in dietary fibers, which maintain the feeling of satiety and reduce appetite.
  • It is beneficial for eye health
Macular degeneration is a problem often responsible for the deterioration of vision with age. Although the causes of this problem are not known, studies have shown that antioxidants reduce the inflammation that underlies this degeneration. Fennel contains a number of antioxidants important for vision, including zeaxanthin, beta-carotene and flavonoids.
  • It could regulate thyroid activity
A scientific study showed that long-term high consumption of fennel reduced serum levels of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4), while smaller amounts of fennel showed insignificant effects.
  • It can relieve menstrual cramps
Although many women take anti-inflammatories to ease period pain, there are also natural remedies that may be helpful, one of which is fennel tea. Some research has shown that fennel helps prevent the uterus from contracting, which causes menstrual cramps.
  • It stimulates lactation
Fennel can also be used to stimulate milk production in lactating women. It is advisable to ask your doctor for advice before using this natural remedy to stimulate lactation.
