Fennel is a rich source of dietary fibre, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. It’s particularly high in iron. It is also a good source of vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6 and B9 (folate), as well as being a moderate source of vitamin C.

Fennel can help with skin and coat problems. It can also act as a digestive aid and can help reduce the inflammation traditionally associated with arthritis. It’s also believed to be useful in helping to protect against diabetes and cancer.
