BENEFITS OF FENNEL SEED WATER
Stimulates melatonin production
Melatonin levels in the brain are responsible for helping us sleep well. Trouble sleeping often indicates less than sufficient melatonin production in the brain. Those who sleep well and get a minimum of 6-8 hours of sleep each night find that they lose weight faster and can better maintain a healthy weight.
Fennel seeds help keep you awake and alert, and not reaching for caffeine or sugar to boost your energy levels. This will help you to eat less and concentrate more clearly on your to-do list.
When your metabolism is increased, you burn calories faster and more efficiently. A faster metabolism—when combined with smart diet and exercise habits—is a sure way to lose weight.
A natural detoxifier
When you remove toxins from your body, it allows all of your body—including your metabolism and digestive system—to function more effectively, thereby aiding in weight-loss efforts.
A natural appetite suppressant
Forget over-the-counter appetite suppressants for weight loss. Instead, use fennel seed water to help keep your appetite at bay.

Hunger pangs happen when spasms occur in the stomach. Fennel seed helps relax your muscles and keep spasmodic activity at bay.
Helps purify your blood
A healthy and clean blood supply helps the entire body and digestive system run more efficiently. A well-functioning digestive system aids in weight-loss through the fast removal of waste from your body.

Fennel seed water is simply water infused with fennel seeds. Infusing can be done either by immersing the seeds in hot water or by steeping them overnight in cool water. Fennel water has a light golden colour, smells fresh and clean, and the taste is not bad at all! In the beginning, I did find the taste weird but I got used to it real quick!

The Quick Method:
Place the water in a deep pan and bring it to boil. Add the fennel seeds, turn off the heat and cover the pan. Once the water has cooled to room temperature it’s ready to drink.
The Overnight Method:
Using the same ratio of water to fennel seeds, simply place the water and the fennel seeds in a glass jar, cover, and allow to steep overnight. In the morning your fennel seed water will be ready to drink.
