Fennel Seeds: Effective In Preventing H1N1 Flu

Sharjah: Drinking a decoction made of fennel seeds soaked in warm water first thing in the morning could prevent you from catching swine flu says a study published in a Chinese medical research magazine.

Swine Flu or the most common health threat on almost all the countries around the world which is widely known as H1N1 flu has been a horror to many people. A lot of us have been threatened by this epidemic. Hospital corners read a lot of sign which says " If you are infected with H1N1 rush directly to the emergency room and not to the Out Patient department" . This is of course very alarming.

However, I have read an article recently that informed that drinking fennel seeds soaked in warm water may help prevent catching the swine flu. That is truly great.

To those who are not familiar about fennel seeds, these are the oval, green or yellowishbrown dried fruit of Foeniculum vulgare, a member of the parsley family. Dried fennel seed is an aromatic, anise-flavoured spice, brown or green in colour when fresh, slowly turning a dull grey as the seed ages. Fennel seeds are sometimes confused with those of anise, which are very similar in taste and appearance, though smaller. Fennel is also used as a flavouring in some natural toothpaste.

According to report published in Al Khaleej a local Arabic daily, the study has resulted in an increase of fennel seeds sales by 50 per cent in some Asian countries.

The report read that similar increase in sales was also visible in countries like Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

The fennel seed warm drink is being distributed to people who are making pilgrimage to the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.
