A few fennel facts: Fennel is stocked with vitamin C, folate, potassium and fiber. It can help lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure and strengthen the immune system. It boasts an impressive phytonutrient profile, giving it strong antioxidant activity. And if you're concerned with trimming down, it never hurts to add another veggie to the mix.
