The Commission E reported that fennel seed promotes gastrointestinal motility and in higher concentrations acts as an antispasmodic. In experiments, anethole and fenchone have been shown to have a secretolytic action in the respiratory tract. In the frog, aqueous fennel extracts raise the mucociliary activity of the ciliary epithelium.
Dosage:Extract: mix 10 to 20 drops in water. Use warm water and 1 tsp. honey for a soothing drink daily.
