Don’t be put off by this strange offering at the end of a meal in India. It’a natural stomach remedy that helps digest food but also aids in a variety of stomach problems.

Fennel seeds with sugar. If anyone knows how to aid their stomachs, Indians do. Let’s face it they eat curry for breakfast lunch and dinner day in day out and still manage to frequent to the toilet like a normal person.

Some benefits to eating fennel seeds are:

  • Aiding with constipation, Indigestion, IBS & Bloating (this will explain the ability to eat the huge amount of curries)
  • Regulate blood pressure
  • Reduce water retention
  • Reduce asthma symptoms
  • Purify blood by helping flush out toxins
  • Improves eyesight
  • Helps with acne
  • Helps keep cancer away

So there you go, that’s why it’s shoved in your face at the end of a meal and on every street corner.

Well pet, I’m a Bakewell Tart fiend, straight talking (with a slight twang), nutrition nutter, fond exercise go’er and surfing enthusiast. Visual creativity and fitness are my career and travelling my passion. So I decided to mix them, permanently, and left the London grind for a life of nomad travel. This is where I document it, like a hamster stashing his nuts. I hope you find my destination writings helpful, my nutrition posts informative and my workouts energising.
