Fennel is one of those interesting and overlooked plants that you may not consider in your everyday diet but you sure taste them when they’re in something that’s on your plate.
This extremely powerful three-in-one vegetable, herb and spice is packed with properties that intrigued me enough to want to know more. Besides helping to digest fats and aiding in weight loss, fennel is a diuretic that helps the removal of toxic substances from the body and reduces swelling.
One cup of fennel bulb contains almost 20 percent of the daily requirement for vitamin C, which makes fennel a very rich source of the beneficial nutrient.
Vitamin C improves general immune system health, produces and repairs skin tissue, helps to form collagen and also protects the body from the harmful effects of free radicals. Tasty? Yes, indeed—and good for you too!
