Fennel

Fennel is a flavorful culinary herb and medicinal plant full of goodness. It is rich in vitamin c – so much so that one cup of fennel bulb contains almost 20 percent of the daily requirement of vitamin C. Vitamin C improves general immune system health, produces and repairs skin tissues, helps form collagen, and protects the blood vessel walls as an antioxidant against the harmful effects of free radicals that can frequently lead to heart diseases.

It also prevents Anemia. Iron and histidine, an amino acid found in fennel, are both helpful in the treatment of anemia. Whereas iron is the chief constituent of hemoglobin, histidine stimulates the production of hemoglobin and also helps in the formation of various other components of the blood. Fennel helps reduce heart diseases, regulates blood pressure and even has anticancer potential. Interestingly, this herb can even regulate menstruation as a natural pain reliever and hormonal balance during PMS!
