Fennel Overview

Written by FoundHealth.

The herb fennel has a long history of use as both food and medicine. Traditionally, it is said to act as a carminative, a term that means that it helps the body expel gas. Other traditional uses include increasing breast milk production, easing childbirth, soothing cough, promoting menstrual flow, soothing indigestion, and enhancing libido. Fennel is also a common ingredient in “gripe water,” a traditional (and highly alcoholic) preparation used for treating infant colic .

Dosage

A typical dose of fennel is 1–1 1/2 teaspoons of seeds per day, either in capsules or as tea.
