In the Middle Age, it was used in amulets to protect from witchcraft. The ancient Greeks used it as a slimming aid and apparently it is associated with word Marathon which means to grow thin. A few seeds of fennel can be added to tea as a remedy for indigestion. It is a good source of vitamin C. Nibbling on few seeds refreshes the breath.
