Like many herbs, Anise is not simply a flavoring but is considered beneficial as a natural remedy for common ailments. According to an article by Marchia Claesson, Anise- Health Benefits and Uses, Anise is said to benefit the liver, improve circulation, increase lactation, and relieve flatulence. It’s also known to have mild expectorant and antimicrobial qualities.
The anise flavor is present in many candies such as these Old Fashioned Anise drops.
Old Fashioned Anise Candy is gluten free and made with natural anise oil and wrapped in red cellophane.
