Fennel is a vegetable many people are unfamiliar with but may recognize the taste from Greek, Italian, and French food.

So why branch out and try something new? Fennel brings a lot to the table that other vegetables don’t, in terms of both flavor and nutrition!

Nutritious Fennel contains vitamin C which is important for many functions in the body, including immune function. Vitamin C also helps support healthy hair and skin by encouraging collagen formation.

Supports Healthy Blood Consuming fennel may help support healthy blood in the body. Anemia is a condition where there are not enough red blood cells to carry oxygen through the body. Fennel might be able to help.

Supports Heart Health Fennel contains a good amount of fiber which we all know is important for a healthy heart (and digestion too!). But there are other nutrients in fennel that can support heart health.

Supports Healthy Digestion Ancient medicine has used fennel to support healthy digestion and avoid bloating. Luckily, modern science supports this use.

Supports Healthy Cells Another amazing benefit of fennel is that it may help support healthy cells in the body. Cancer occurs when cells in the body grow in unhealthy ways and the body can’t get rid of those cells.
