Native to southern Asia, this plant from the ginger family is used in the kitchen, but has also been an ingredient of traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic (Indian) medicines for many centuries. Turmeric is known for its healing properties and contributes, among other things, to digestive comfort.

Characterised by its anise flavour, fennel root is mainly consumed as a vegetable.

However, its seeds and essential oils have many other uses: while fennel seeds can, for example, help to stimulate breastfeeding, the essential oils are known to mitigate the production of digestive gases in cases of bloating and flatulence.
