Fact of the Week: Star Anise

Star Anise, the brown star-shaped spice widely used in Asian cuisine, has many health benefits ranging from boosting the immune system to digestive issues. If you suffer from gas, abdominal cramps, indigestion, bloating and constipation, consider adding star anise to your next broth, sauce, tea or spice rub for meat. 
If the licorice flavor isn’t your “cup of tea”, it pairs well with ginger, cinnamon or citrus for added health benefits.
