However, dogs and humans benefit from the healing effects of fennel(often called fennel seeds) as a so-called carminative (agent with anti-flatulence properties).
The fennel owes Its positive effect for the stomach especially
because of its high proportion of up to 70% of trans-anethole.This essential oil also causes the sweet, aniseed-like flavor and
supports the mobility of smooth muscle in the gastrointestinal tract, which in turn promotes digestion. Moreover, the transanethole helps increase production of gastric juice, thus fennel is also considered appetizing. However, the main function of the trans-anethole is its antispasmodic action, which is probably based on an inhibition of calcium mobilization in the smooth muscle of the digestive tract. If the calcium concentration in the cells decrease, there is a relaxation of the intestinal muscles and the tensions dissolve.
But the trans-anethole can do even more: It speeds frequency of the so-called ciliated epithelia up in the bronchi, the impact where it is concerned with small cell processes that are responsible for the removal of mucus and foreign matter. As a result, fixed set mucus dissolves and can be coughed out. In this respect, the fennel is a first choise tretment especially in conjunction with honey or anise, marshmallow root, licorice root and thyme herb for bronchitis and cough, but also with all other respiratory diseases, as well as inflammation of the upper airways (catarrh).
Another important ingredient in the essential oil of fennel is the fenchone tht is contained to about 15% and which gives the fennel the mild bitter taste. It supports in particular the effect of the trans-anethole and is known for its antimicrobial properties, with which it can inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi.
