Fennel: Our New Discovery
In our daily quest to discover and learn more about fruits, vegetables and herbs in order to provide you with a variety of healthy options, we found FENNEL!
Sometimes mistaken for Celery because it looks similar, Fennel is a vegetable that tastes a little like licorice. This long stalk vegetable has a number of health benefits and therefore we recommend you add it to your daily lifestyle as you work continuously towards #CreatingHealthyHabits.
Improves skin health
Lowers blood pressure
Reduces the effects of PMS and regulates menstruation
Boosts immunity and treats anemia
Helps indigestion... and much more!
All parts of the fennel - the stalk, leaves and bulb- are edible. You can use fennel to cook or add it to your juice. We at KweNu add it to our detox juices.
