The popular herb has been used in traditional herbal medicine as a fragrance in soaps, oils, and mouth fresheners and stomachic, antiseptic, anti-spasmodic, carminative, digestive, expectorant, stimulant, and tonic agent to treat head-lice and mites, increase blood pressure, prevent formation of gas in the gastrointestinal tract and menstrual cramps, etc.
Besides the main ingredient Anethole, it also contains, D-pinene, I-phellandrene, Alpha-terpineol, Safrol, Methyl chavicol, Resin, Shikimic acid, etc.
Anise has been used as a laxative in assisting bowel movement in folk medicine worldwide, especially in Asia.
In the study to reaffirm the traditional use of herbal Anise for the treatment of constipation, researchers at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Su, conducted an experiment to examine the effects of a phytotherapeutic formula in Brazil.
Both treatment periods were separated by a 9-day washout period followed by the reverse treatment for another 5-day period.
Further analysis also suggested that the phytotherapic compound is found to exert a small reduction in serum potassium levels during the active treatment.
