fennel

The health benefits of fennel include relief from anemia, indigestion, flatulence, constipation, colic, diarrhea, respiratory disorders, menstrual disorders, and its benefits regarding eye care. Fennel, which has the scientific name Foeniculum Vulgare Miller, or its essence, is widely used around the world in mouth fresheners, toothpastes, desserts, antacids and in various culinary applications.

It originated in the Mediterranean and those cultures have long used it for culinary and medicinal reasons. It has not been spread and naturalized as an herb around the world, but still primarily grows in coastal climates and on riverbanks. It is also one of the main components of the alcohol absinthe, although the plant does not have hallucinogenic properties.

Wild fennel was transplanted, cultivated and cherished by early Greeks and Romans. The mythologies of both cultures regarded it as a gift from the gods due to its medicinal and culinary properties.

Today, fennel is a main component of Italian and French cooking. It is used in the popular eating plan known as the Mediterranean Diet, and is cultivated in the United States, France, India and Russia.
