Historical uses of Anise
Fennel, Foeniculum vulgare, and anise, Pimpinella anisum, are plants which have been used as estrogenic agents for millennia. Specifically, they have been reputed to increase milk secretion, promote menstruation, facilitate birth, alleviate the symptoms of the male climacteric, and increase libido. In the 1930s, some interest was shown in these plants in the development of synthetic estrogens. The main constituent of the essential oils of fennel and anise, anethole, has been considered to be the active estrogenic agent. However, further research suggests that the actual pharmacologically active agents are polymers of anethole, such as dianethole and photoanethole.
   Another use of anise has been a smooth muscle relaxer to prevent spasms of the gastrointestinal muscle tissue and relieve minor digestive problems. Anise oils is used to treat lice and scabies in some parts of the world.

Anise Chemical Composition
Anise has a number of compounds including anethole ( approximately 90%), gamma-himachalene and glucosides of phenylpropanoids. Anisaldehyde, anethole, estragole, and myrcene derived from anise seeds are useful as a lead compound to development of new agents for selective control of food mite.

Anise seed as antispasmodic agent
Antispasmodic and relaxant effects of the hidroalcoholic extract of Pimpinella anisum (Apiaceae) on rat anococcygeus smooth muscle.
J Ethnopharmacol. 2006 Sep 6; Departamento de Enfermagem Psiquiatrica e Ciencias Humanas, Escola de Enfermagem de Ribeirao Preto, Ribeirao Preto, Universidade de Sao Paulo (USP), Ribeirao Preto, Brazil.
The present work describes the mechanisms involved in the muscle relaxant effect of ethanol:water aerial parts extracts of anise plant. Three hidroalcoholic extracts were tested for activity in the rat anococcygeus smooth muscle. The three extracts inhibited acetylcholine -induced contraction. Collectively, our results provide functional evidence that the effects elicited by the hidroalcoholic extract of anise involve the participation of nitric oxide and subsequent activation of the NO-cGMP pathway. The relaxant action displayed by anise justifies its use in the folk medicine as an antispasmodic agent.

Anise Plant Research Update
p-Anisaldehyde: acaricidal component of Pimpinella anisum seed oil against the house dust mites Dermatophagoides farinae and Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus.

Planta Med. 2004 Mar;70(3):279-81.
The acaricidal activity of anise seed oil -derived p-anisaldehyde and commercially available components of anise seed oil was examined against Dermatophagoides farinae and D. pteronyssinus and compared with those of the synthetic acaricides, benzyl benzoate and N,N-diethyl- m-toluamide (DEET). On the basis of LD 50 values, the compound most toxic to D. farinae adults was p-anisaldehyde followed by benzyl benzoate, DEET, 3-carene, and estragol. Against D. pteronyssinus adults, p-anisaldehyde was much more effective than benzyl benzoate, DEET, 3-carene , and estragol. p-Anisaldehyde was about 8.4 and 6.7 times more toxic than benzyl benzoate against D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus adults, respectively. The results suggested that p-anisaldehyde may be useful as a lead compound for the development of new agents for the selective control of house dust mites.

Relaxant effect of Pimpinella anisum on isolated guinea pig tracheal chains and its possible mechanism.
J Ethnopharmacol. 2001 Jan;74(1):83-8.
We have studied the relaxant effect of anise on isolated guinea pig tracheal chains and its possible mechanism(s). The bronchodilatory effects of aqueous and ethanol anise extracts and anise essential oil were examined on precontracted isolated tracheal chains of the guinea pig. These results indicated bronchodilatory effects of anise essential oil, anise aqueous, and anise ethanol extracts. The results also showed that the relaxant effect of anise plant is not due to an inhibitory effect of histamine (H(1)) or stimulatory effect of beta(2)-adrenergic receptors, but due to inhibitory effects on muscarinic receptors.
