Why Dill is so ill (great!)

Peace Fam,

I haven't dropped any Science in a bit and I want to briefly talk about one of my favorite herbs: dill!!

When I first starting using dill it was to marinate my salmon many years ago (yeah my Citrus Herb Salmon was the real deal), but since those days are long gone I don't eat a salad without a handful of minced dill in there. I just can't live without it.

Here are some reasons why you should start incorporating dill into your daily routine:

  • The components in dill oil neutralize the effects of cigarette, charcoal, and trash incinerator smoke.
  • Dill seeds are highly effective in curing bad breath.
  • The essential oil in dill also helps aid in digestion by activating secretion of bile and other digestive juices.
  • Helps with hiccups.
  • Relieves insomnia.
  • Cures diarrhea symptoms.
  • Great for improving lactation in nursing mothers.
  • Dill can help improve and maintain menstrual cycles.
  • It is also anti congestive and anti histaminic and will help with allergy issues and congestion.
  • It's a diuretic.
  • Enhances the libido (hello!)
  • Excellent source of Calcium.

Whodathunkit? Some of these I wasn't even aware about until doing some research. All the more reasons why Dill is so bad ass. (LOL)

I've been craving a salad since midnight and I think I'm gonna make good on that craving now.

For an extra green and nutritious salad boost, mince up some flat leaf parsley, throw it in and hook it up!!
