Dill

Dill weed is a unique perennial herb with pleasant anise-like flavor and packed with many beneficial nutrients. Itsaleaves as well as seeds are employed as a seasoning. It is the member of the umbelliferae family, a large group of flowering herbs and spices, which include caraway, parsley, cumin, fennel, etc.a botanically, dill belongsawithin the family of apiaceae, in the genus: anethum, and scientifically named as anethum graveolens.
Dill is native to mediterranean and eastern-european regions. Just like cilantro, it too requires warm summer climates with well-drained fertile soil to flourish. It grows 1 to 2 feet in height and features dark-green leaves (sprigs) that are wispy and fern-like, have a soft texture with rich pleasant aroma and sweet taste. Dill seeds, used as spice, are similar in taste and appearance to "caraway seeds." they feature light brown color, oval shape with vertical ridges and flavor that is aromatic, sweet, and citrus, but also slight bitterly.
The health benefits of dill include its ability to boost digestive health, as well as provide relief from insomnia, hiccups, diarrhea, dysentery, menstrual disorders, respiratory disorders, and cancer.
It is also good for oral care, and can be a powerful boost for your immune system and can protect you from bone degradation.
It is also an anti-inflammatory substance, which means that it can protect you against arthritis.
Furthermore, it can reduce excess gas, and is considered a carminative.
Dill has antibacterial properties but is most known for its stomach settling ability (ever wonder why pregnant women crave pickles?). It contains a variety of nutrients but loses most when heated to high temperatures. For this reason, it is best used in uncooked recipes or in foods cooked at low temperatures. It is a great addition to any type of fish, to dips and dressings, to omelets or to poultry dishes.
Dill has seldom more than one stalk, neither so high nor so large as fennel, being round, and having fewer joints thereon; its leaves are sadder and somewhat long, and is so like fennel that it deceives many, but harder in handling, and somewhat thicker, and of a stronger unpleasant scent; the tops of the stalks have four branches, and smaller umbels of yellow flowers, which turn into small seed somewhat flatter than fennel-seed. The root is long. It usually ,rows in gardens and grounds for the pur- pose, and is also found wild in some places.

Cancer fighter
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in todayas society.
Most cancer victims will attest that when it comes to herbal supplements, dill is high on their list in regards to its ability to ward off the spread of the disease.
Dill is known to have high amounts of monoterpenes which have been documented and shown to have properties associated with attacking and limiting the growth of cancer cells within the body.

Letas turn our attention to these monoterpense weave been talking about.
Monoterpenes are chemopreventive, and since they are stimulating by nature, they activate the secretion of an enzyme called glutathione-s-transferase (the radical glutathione is an effective antioxidant) which is very effective in neutralizing carcinogens.
It is particularly effective at neutralizing cyano- and benzo- derivatives and free radicals, thereby protecting the body from cancer.
The other antioxidants in the essential oils of dill also contribute to this cancer protection that people enjoy from adding dill to their diet.

Bone/teeth enhancements
Growing up in todayas society, we have always been told to drink milk to build stronger bones and have healthier teeth.
This consumption of milk revolves around the amount of calcium found within it.
Dill also contains high amounts of calcium and is therefore considered a fantastic herbal supplement for helping strengthen the durability of bones in the human body.

Cold and flu remedy
Everyone has had symptoms of the common cold, such as a runny nose or a productive cough.
Dill plays a strong part in the herbal community as being a supplement added to most cold remedies to assist in reducing the amount of time a cold lingers within the body.

Bad breath
Components found within the structure of the dill herb have been known to assist with being a fast cure for bad breath.
Dill seeds can be chewed in similar fashion to gum and breath mints and provide a health alternative for fresh clean breath that will not play a part in destroying the integrity of your teeth.

Insomnia
The essential oils found in herbs have peculiar and powerful properties. They are simultaneously stimulating, sedative, and hypnotic, that is, they stimulate as well as pacify.
The essential oils in dill are no exception. The flavonoids and vitamin-b complex present in its essential oils, since they are stimulating in nature, activate the secretion of certain enzymes and hormones which have calming and hypnotic effects, thereby helping people get a good nightas sleep.

Bone health
The calcium content of dill means that it is an important element in protecting you from bone loss and the loss of bone mineral density.
Osteoporosis affects millions of people each year, and calcium, along with other essential minerals, are a key component in the proper growth and development of bones, and the repair of injured bones as well.

Diabetes
Dill has long been associated with diabetes and the management of insulin levels.
Despite the fact that research is somewhat limited in this area, particularly on human subjects, studies have indicated that they can help reduce the fluctuations of serum lipids and insulin levels in corticosteroid-induced diabetes.

Excess gas
As a well-known carminative, dill can help prevent the embarrassing condition of excessive gas.
It is not only an uncomfortable condition to experience in public, but if gas continues to build up, it can actually be a dangerous situation where it presses on the delicate organs of the chest cavity.
A carminative forces gas downward through the digestive tract, and allows it to leave the body in a safe way.

Copper is a cofactor for many vital enzymes, including cytochrome c-oxidase and superoxide dismutase (other minerals function as cofactors for this enzyme are manganese and zinc). Zinc is a co-factor in many enzymes that regulate growth and development, digestion and nucleic acid synthesis. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.
