PROPERTIES AND USES
Fennel appears to have a re-balancing effect on hormones, probably due to an estrogen-like plant hormone. As such it helps to stabilize hormone activity during the menopause and has traditionally been used to increase milk flow in breast-feeding mothers. It is a good diuretic, antimicrobial, and antiseptic which can help with premenstrual water retention and urinary tract infections. It helps to eliminate toxic wastes from the body, making it valuable in treating arthritis and cellulite. It reduces digestive spasms, calms and tones the stomach and digestive system, and has a slightly laxative effect, benefiting nausea, indigestion, constipation, and stomach cramps. Fennel also makes a good mouthwash for gum disease or infections.
