Star anise

Star anise is the seed pod from the fruit of the Illicium verum plant, an evergreen shrub native to Southwest China.

The most valuable component of star anise may lie within its dense supply of flavonoids and polyphenols. These may primarily be responsible for the spice’s broad applications and medicinal benefits.

Some of the major health-promoting compounds found in star anise include:

  • Linalool
  • Quercetin
  • Anethole
  • Shikimic acid
  • Gallic acid
  • Limonene

Together, these compounds may contribute to the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties of star anise.
