Fennel has an anise-like taste due to its essential oils. This is rounded off by the fine sweet aroma of the carrot. With a little olive oil, some salt and pepper, you get a wonderful fresh Mediterranean juice.
Fennel is versatile: Its high vitamin C content has an antioxidant effect by trapping harmful oxygen radicals. Fennel also contains a lot of iron, which is important for oxygen transport in the body. It is involved in blood formation because it is an important component of the red blood pigment haemoglobin. The absorption of iron is favoured by vitamin C. Its potassium content makes a good contribution to the detoxification of the kidneys due to its draining effect. Potassium also plays an important role in the transmission of stimuli in the body. Thanks to its essential oils, fennel has an antispasmodic and calming effect on our gastrointestinal tract. Fennel also has a high folic acid content. This is important for cell division and new formation, blood formation and growth.
IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Pregnant women need a sufficient supply of folic acid.
The carrot is best known for its high beta-carotene content: With its 7.6mg, 100g carrots contain a dose that far exceeds the daily recommendation of 2.0-4.0 mg. Beta-carotene is a provitamin A that has an antioxidant effect by intercepting harmful oxygen radicals. It can be converted in the body into biologically active retinol (vitamin A), which is important for vision, growth and nerve conduction. The body can build vitamin A from beta-carotene. It only uses as much of the food as it can convert. An overdose is therefore not possible. Beta-carotene belongs to the carotenoids which are classified as secondary plant substances.
