Fennel has a range of nutritional benefits.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Nutrient Database,

one raw fennel bulb weighing 234 grams (g) contains:

73 calories

0.47 g of fat

2.9 g of protein

17 g of carbohydrate

7.3 g of dietary fiber

no cholesterol

A cup of fennel also provides:

360 milligrams (mg) of potassium

45 mg of sodium

838 international units (IU) of vitamin A

43 mg of calcium

10.4 mg of vitamin C

0.64 mg of iron

0.041 mg of vitamin B-6

15 mg of magnesium

Fennel also contains:

phosphorous

zinc

copper

manganese

selenium

niacin

pantothenic acid

folate

choline

beta-carotene

lutein

zeaxanthin

vitamin E

vitamin K

As well as these, fennel provides high levels of dietary nitrates and is a natural source of

estrogen. Fennel is a source of vitamin B-6, which plays a vital role in energy metabolism by breaking

down carbohydrates and proteins into glucose and amino acids. These smaller compounds are

more easily used for energy within the body.

Digestion and regularity

The fiber content in fennel helps to prevent constipation and promotes regularity for a healthy

digestive tract.

Weight management and satiety

Dietary fiber is an important factor in weight management and works as a “bulking agent” in the

digestive system.

The nutrients in fennel are linked to a range of health benefits.

Bone health

The vitamin and mineral content in fennel contributes to building and maintaining bone structure

and strength in the following ways:

Phosphate and calcium are both important in bone structure.

Iron and zinc are crucial for the production and maturation of collagen.

Bone matrix formation requires the mineral manganese.

Low intakes of vitamin K have been associated with a higher risk for bone fracture.

Vitamin K is important for health, as it modifies bone matrix proteins, improves calcium

absorption, and may reduce the excretion of calcium in urine.

Blood pressure. The selenium found in fennel appears to stimulate production of killer T-cells. This suggests that

it can improve the immune response to infection.

Inflammation

Choline is a very important and versatile nutrient in fennel that helps with sleep, muscle

movement, learning, and memory.

It also helps to maintain the structure of cellular membranes, aids in the transmission of nerve

impulses, assists in the absorption of fat, and reduces chronic inflammation.

Metabolism

The nitrates in fennel can help moderate blood pressure.

Maintaining a low sodium intake is essential for lowering blood pressure, but increasing

potassium intake may be just as important because of its role in vasodilation, the dilation and

contraction of blood vessels.

According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), fewer than 2

percent of American adults meet the daily 4,700 mg recommendation for potassium.

In addition, there is evidence that potassium, calcium, and magnesium decrease blood pressure

naturally. All of these are present in fennel.

Dietary nitrates present in fennel and other foods have vasodilatory and vasoprotective

properties. Because of this, they help lower blood pressure and protect the heart.

One 2014 study found that blood pressure levels were lower after taking nitrate supplements.

Heart health

The fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, and phytonutrient content in fennel, coupled

with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health.

Fennel contains significant amounts of fiber. Fiber decreases the risk of heart disease as it

helps reduce the total amount of cholesterol in the blood.

Potassium appears to promote heart health. In one study, people who consumed 4,069 mg of

potassium per day had a 49 percent lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease compared

with those who consumed around 1,793 mg per day.


Vitamin B-6 and folate prevent the build-up of a compound called homocysteine by converting it

into a different compound, methionine. When excessive amounts of homocysteine build up, it

can damage blood vessels and lead to heart problems.

Cancer

Selenium is a mineral in fennel but not most other fruits and vegetables (as it is primarily found

in Brazil nuts and animal proteins). It contributes to liver enzyme function and helps detoxify

some cancer-causing compounds in the body. Selenium can also prevent inflammation and

decrease tumor growth rates.

Fiber intake from fruits and vegetables like fennel are associated with a lower risk of colorectal

cancer.

Vitamin C, vitamin A, and beta-carotene are powerful antioxidants that can help protect cells

against damage from free radicals.

Fennel contains folate, which plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair. This might help prevent

cancer cells from forming because of mutations in the DNA.
