As an Antioxidant : Antioxidants are naturally existing compounds that protect your bodys cells from damage as a result of environmental toxins -- such as tobaccos fumes -- and free radicals, which are produced when your body breaks down food. Toxins and free radicals contribute to the aging process, as well as potentially placing you at greater risk for heart disease and cancer. In an animal study published in Chemico-Biological Interactions in 2007, scientists found that star anise reduced the amount of cancer development after exposure to carcinogens. The scientists concluded that the benefits of star anise for treating cancer was promising, but further study in humans is required.

Shikimic Acid Content :
Shikimic acid is a plant-based material that is used to produce the anti-viral medication oseltamivir phosphate. According to an article in Alternative Medicine Studies,shikimic acid is found in high concentrations in star anise. The 2008 issue of Journal of Medical Virology found that shikimic acid, when combined with quercetin, another antioxidant-rich plant-derived substance, significantly improved immune function. Shikimic acid on its own, however, yielded little additional benefit.

As an Anti-bacterial :
In a 2010 issue of Journal of Medicinal Food, scientists in Taiwan found that four anti-microbial derivatives from star anise showed great promise when they were tested against almost 70 strains of drug-resistant bacterias. The increase of drug-resistant bacterias -- ones that are not greatly affected by conventional antibiotics -- is troubling, and star anise may be effective in the future battle against these drug-resistant strains, although further study is required.
