Solaray Fennel Seeds (Foeniculum Vulgare) 450 mg.
Fennel's distinct licorice scent adds zest to fish and vegetable dishes. Herbalists appreciate Fennel as a useful plant. The fennel plant came originally from Europe, where it is still grown. Fennel is also cultivated in many parts of North America, Asia, and Egypt. Fennel seeds are used in herbal medicine.
Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies)
According to the Greek legend of Prometheus, fennel was thought to have bestowed immortality. Fennel seeds are a common cooking spice, particularly for use with fish. After meals, they are used in several cultures to prevent gas and upset stomach. Fennel has also been used as a remedy for cough and colic in infants.
The major constituents, which include the terpenoid anethole, are found in the volatile oil. Anethole and other terpenoids inhibit spasms in smooth muscles, such as those in the intestinal tract, and this is thought to contribute to fennel’s use as a carminative (gas-relieving and gastrointestinal tract cramp-relieving agent). Related compounds to anethole may have mild estrogenic actions, although this has not been proven in humans. Fennel is also thought to possess diuretic (increase in urine production), choleretic (increase in production of bile), pain-reducing, fever-reducing, and anti-microbial actions. Fennel was formerly an official drug in the United States and was listed as being used for indigestion.

Solaray Means Quality
Every Solaray™ product is subjected to rigorous testing and screening protocols. The process may vary by ingredient, but typically includes organoleptic (taste, touch, smell) testing to compare it to previous batches, and lab assays for microbial, identity, purity and potency validation. Only when an ingredient has passed all of the required assays is it released to manufacturing. Solaray adheres to all current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) and an independent auditing firm audits Solaray's facilities, laboratory and manufacturing protocols for compliance with the latest regulations.
The Green Screened logo represents their commitment at Solaray to providing herbs of the utmost quality. The Solaray brand employs quality control standards in all areas of product development - from ensuring identification and authenticity by laboratory analysis to screening for microbes, herbicides and pesticides to heavy metal testing. Solaray rejects herbs they suspect are irradiated. Only after Solaray's laboratory analysis program confirms that the herbs meet Solaray's strict standards do they give the product their Green Screened approval.
