Anethole has been shown to have minimal to no harmful side effects while also having local anesthetic, sedative, oestrogenic, anti-genotoxic, and anti-tumor effects.



Is anethole an antioxidant?

It is anticipated that the organic antioxidant chemical anethole (AN), which has a benzene ring, will benefit mammalian early embryogenesis.

What function does anethole serve in chronic diseases?

Anethole has many health benefits for people, including anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic, chemopreventive, anti-diabetic, immunomodulatory, neuroprotective, and antithrombotic properties. These effects are mediated by the modulation of several cell signaling pathways, primarily NF-kB and TNF- signaling, and various ion channels.

What is the traditional use of anethole?

The antispasmodic, secretolytic, secretomotor, and antibacterial properties of aniseed essential oil account for a substantial portion of its medical use. The traditional uses of aniseed include “catarrh of the upper respiratory tract” and dyspeptic problems include mild, spasmodic gastro-intestinal illnesses, bloating, and flatulence. Anise is used as a diuretic to enhance urine flow, an expectorant to increase productive coughing, a “runny nose” remedy, and an appetite stimulant in traditional medicine.
