Posted by Will Cartwright on Mar 27, 2017 10:00:00 AM

One in five Americans suffer from an auto-immune disease and most auto-immune diseases involve inflammation. People who suffer from immune-related inflammation may find relief from products and supplements that contain fennel, specifically from the Foeniculum vulgare species of fennel.
