Illicium verum, a type of evergreen tree endemic to areas of Vietnam and China, produces star anise. The tree produces a fruit known as star anise, which the Chinese refer to as “eight-horned anise” because of the fruit’s eight star-shaped pericarps (arms).

Star anise can be consumed fresh or dried. The tree’s leaves are poisonous, and they aren’t employed in any Eastern folk medicine therapies. Star anise has long been used to aid sleep, relieve joint discomfort, relieve muscular aches, and enhance digestion, all of which assist the immune system.
