Fennel seeds can be made into a tea to reduce digestive upset and coughing. The herb also has an estrogenic effect that may help with painful menstruation and menopausal symptoms. Further, fennel has shown insecticidal, anti-parasite, and repelling potential. In vitro research has found the plant to be antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-platelet aggregating, anti-diabetic, and antioxidant.
