Star Anise, product of Jamaica
STAR ANISE (Illicium verum) - Product of Grenada, Caribbean
"Anis de Chine" ….. "Aniseed" …… "Anise Etoile"

Star anise is an herb. The seed and oil of the Chinese Aniseed are used for medicinal purposes (Not the Japanese - Illicium anisatum). Star Anise is used in the food and beverage business as a culinary spice, for flavouring. In Caribbean cuisine, it is a must-have ingredient for good Mauby, also can be soaked in rum (Dominica) and is believed to be an ingredient in Mama Juana (Dominican Republic)

Star anise is rich in Shikimic acid, a plant based compound that is directly related to the Bird Flu medication marketed as Tamaflu. Shikimic acid on its own does not seem ot have any medicinal positives but when combined with other compounds bolstered immune functions against viral infections. People have used Anise for digestive tract issues like indegestion, colic in babies (See FDA comments before use on babies), flatulance and loss of apetite. It is also believed to be effective in resolving respitory infections of some types.
