How long does it take half of the drug concentration to be eliminated from the body?
I'm not sure that can be quantified (I found a number of articles that said the same thing). Fennel of which there are a number of varieties that all seem to have some medical use are comprised of multiple different compounds which have half lives dependant on the metabolic load for a specific metabolic pathway in the Liver, they also contain Estrogen precursors which probably hang around for a bit as they are bound to sex hormone binding globulin. It is probably not something an adolescent should be taking.
PS. all articles agreed that it should not be taken for more than 2 to 3 weeks as it has carcinogenic properties.
