Benefits of Fennel

I grow fennel in a large pot and nibbles on the fronds when my stomach feels bad from overeating or consuming an excess of rich foods. Fennel is antispasmodic and relieves gas. It’s a great herb for children to take, as it has an appealing anise flavor. It can also be used for colicky babies. Dr. Donna recommends the herb to nursing moms frequently, as it can increase the flow of breast milk. If a mother consumes an herb, such as anise, while nursing, the medicinal effects of the herb can be transferred to the child without having to administer the herb directly. Fennel relieves cramping of the stomach and the intestines, and can also calm a cough.
