The True Potential Of Saunf Water For Weight Loss

The True Potential Of Saunf Water For Weight Loss

The best approaches to weight loss are those with natural properties and slow, long-term gains, which means that saunf should fit the bill.

The problem is that the idea of saunf water for weight loss is often disregarded in western studies because of a lack of properties and a lack of evidence.

Fennel alone cannot directly help with weight loss and it is not mentioned in medical reviews, which means it is easily overlooked.

Not only does this attitude gloss over any potential benefits that could have a knock on effect on weight loss, it ignores practices in other cultures.

Fennel seeds are a common ingredient in Chinese and Indian cuisine and Ayurveda practices.

Saunf and Ayurveda

Saunf water is more commonly referred to as fennel seed water in western culture, but the term comes from the Hindi word for fennel.

In India, Ayurveda places great emphasis on herbs and spices such as fennel and users believe that there are many potential health benefits to be gained from drinking this water, or by simply adding the seeds to recipes.

Some chew the seeds as a way of freshening their breath and aiding the digestion of a meal; others use saunf water to ease menstrual pain.

The idea of using saunf when dieting originates from this culture, yet many western scientists are wary of these claims.

Fennel Seeds as a Diuretic

There are critics of saunf water that point out the lack of scientific evidence for using these seeds for weight loss, with many pointing towards its function as a diuretic rather than a fat burner.

Some say that fennel seed water merely gives the impression of losing weight because users are urinating more frequently and experiencing less water retention.

On its own, this property can still be a great aid for user health, but it is actually just one of four potential effects that can ultimately help with weight loss.

Fennel Seed Water For Weight Loss

The potential of saunf and fennel seed water for losing weight comes down to a combination of factors.

Decreased weight retention will help users to feel lighter and heavier – even if there is no direct fat loss – but fennel can also have a beneficial effect on digestion, metabolism and appetite suppression.

The former also has no direct link to fat loss and weight loss, but improved digestion, a reduction in gas and decreased bloating can all help.

Not only can this give the impression that users are lighter and thinner, it can improve general health and well-being.

An increased metabolism and appetite suppression, on the other hand, are both far more helpful when dieting.

The faster the metabolism, the easier it is for the body to break down food, burn off fat and create energy for exercise.

Appetite suppressants, meanwhile, can be useful for anyone that struggles to resist snacking and cravings.

Fennel Water or Fennel Tea?

There are many different ways to enjoy the health benefits of fennel seeds and the drink can be prepared in two different ways. Fennel water can be prepared in large qualities and refrigerated for use across the day.

Soak the fennel seeds in water, strain them, grind them into a paste and then put the paste back in the water for three hours.

This process may sound time consuming but it is necessary to release of all of the active components from the seeds.

The alternative method is to grind fennel seeds into a power and stew them in boiling water for about five minutes.

This fennel tea is more appealing because it is just like other herbal teas and is far more convenient.

Saunf water for weight loss isn’t a quick fix solution, but it still has plenty of potential benefits…

Natural methods like saunf can be easily disregarded by scientists and dieters because there is no clear, direct link between digesting the seeds and burning fat.

You can’t drink fennel seed water and watch the pounds melt away, but there is a good chance that you will start to feel healthier, improve your image of yourself and give your metabolism a boost that can then lead to slow, beneficial weight loss.

It is all about a series of small scale health benefits that create a bigger picture.

Improve your well-being and energy levels by improving digestion, decreasing water retention and boosting your metabolism.

With these reactions, and the potential for appetite suppression, weight loss with fennel seeds can really take effect.

  1. Wow, I never knew there were so many ways to use fennel until reading your article today. I have been using fennel in my meals for my inflammation, I never knew it would assist also in weight loss. I am about average weight , possibly this is due to the fennel in my diet I do make many frequent bathroom trips during my day.

    1. Yeah it’s a pretty wicked addition to your diet isn’t it? We enjoyed piecing together the info for the article. 🙂

  2. Once again, the traditional and good Indian diet has a lot of good stuffs in store. And now I have never heard of this fennel seeds. I think I might have eaten one when I had eaten my lunch at an indian restaurant. Is fennel minty? Is it the one being used after eating to quench down the spicyness?

    Anyhow, it’s good to know additional info about them. Will keep these seeds in mind if I eat again at the restaurant. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Interesting and tasty,

    I love the smell of a good fennel tea. Honestly I didn’t know it could also help to lose weight, as you say, not so much study about it.

    How did you came to this information?

    My girlfriend takes fennel tea when she wants to rise the milk production, is crazy how much more breast feeding is happening after few cups!!

    The saunf water is really appealing me…soon it will be summer and I actually thinking to try a cold ice saunf under the tree.

    1. Ahhh research Andrea – the backbone to any successful website! 🙂

      Thanks for taking the time to read our Saunf water article and thanks for leaving your opinion with us!

  4. Hi Chris,
    Very interested in this alternative way of losing fluid from the body. In my family we have a genetic tendency to swollen ankles and legs. It is believed to come from water retention, so the saunf treatment could be useful. When your legs feel heavy and bloated, they get very sensitive and the last thing you want to do is walk or run. This means exercise is difficult and that increases the chance of piling on the pounds. so i am planning to have a go and see if it helps. More Anon.

    1. Hi there!

      I’ve heard about the sensitivity involved with water retention – sounds very painful! This Saunf water could be just the thing for you…let me know how it pans out? 🙂

  5. I really appreciate looking into natural foods, herbs etc. to control ones weight as opposed to all the pills people want to throw at their obesity.

    Thanks for this very insightful read.
    I honestly think that most everything we need to live a healthy life grows naturally on earth. We never had a need for things like High Fructose Corn Syrup which I can actually pronounce and all the other zillions of man made crap that is put into our foods that I can’t pronounce.

    Sadly in America instant gratification led the way to this unhealthy disaster and now in the states there are more Obese than Overweight people with all sorts of health issues?
    Duh, Eat Garbage and U Become what?

    Thanks again for your wisdom, my best,

    1. Couldn’t agree with you more really Gary – people tend to look to all kinds of expensive supplements before looking at the cheaper, more natural options!

      Great to have you here and thanks for the awesome comment 🙂

  6. Hi Chris

    Thanks for a very informative read. I have never heard of fennel water for weight loss. It sounds really good. I have done a lot of research into ayurvedic medicine and must have missed fennel! I noticed you mentioned it was also good for menstrual pain. Is it good for any other body pain? What kind of seed do we need? Can they be purchased at the market or do we need fresh?

    Again, thanks for this great page!

    I’m really looking forward to trying it out!

    1. Hi Robin,

      Snauf or fennel water can also be used to relieve Colicky babies. Breastfeeding mothers can simply take a couple of cups of fennel tea which will them be passed onto the kid – it will calm the digestive tract and help relieve gas and other Colicky symptoms that cause pain!

      Recent research has also indicated that Snauf water can protect an individual from certain cancers. This is because fennel contains several nutrients that are known to have cancer fighting properties!

      If you are looking to buy it’s super-easy to get hold of online. Simply choose a well known health store or even use Amazon – the customer reviews will always point you in the right direction!

      Hope this helps! 🙂
