Have you ever used Five Spice Powder? It’s a blend of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Sichuan pepper and fennel seeds. What a power packed mix! For starters, the fennel seeds contain strong antioxidant properties that are known to reduce inflammation and effectively remove harmful free radicals in the body, thus protecting from cancers, aging, infections and degenerative neurological diseases. Cinnamon contains strong antibacterial properties and is very good to keep blood sugars under control for diabetics. Finally, star anise can ramp up your immune function and fight viral infections such as the cold even with small amounts of this spice.
