Properties

Anise seeds are a good source of many of the B vitamin complex including B-6, iron, copper, manganese, zinc and magnesium.  20g of dry seeds will provide more than the RDA of iron.  In addition they are also a good source of vitamins A and C.

Uses

Aniseed can be used in small quantities as a potent ingredient in recipes to add flavour.  It can also be used in drinks or on its own where it will freshen breath and act as an aid to digestion.

How to take or use aniseed

Organic Aniseeds can be chewed as an aid to digestion or to freshen breath.  They can also be used in a tea blend to help alleviate problems associated with excessive intestinal gas (1 teaspoon infused for approximately 10 minutes).
If ground they can then be mixed into pastes and applied externally to ease breathing and reduce respiratory cold/flu symptoms.  Drinking aniseed tea (described above) will also help breathing.

Precautions

Aniseed is safe in small doses but as with many substances can cause problems when taken in excessive amounts. Ingesting large amounts of aniseed can cause convulsions, narcosis, circulatory problems and, in extreme cases, result in a coma.
