Dill (Anethum graveolens) is an annual herb in the celery family. The leaves and seeds are used as a herb or spice for flavoring food.
This amazing herb is packed with flavonoids, which have been shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. But that’s not the only reason dill is thought to improve heart health. Research shows that dill can also reduce LDL cholesterol levels. High LDL cholesterol levels are associated with increased risks of heart disease, so reducing cholesterol levels is important for maintaining a healthy heart.
* Dill provides a healthy alternative towards relieving the body and the mind of insomnia. Certain flavonoids and vitamins that are abundant within the herb assist with speeding up the production of hormones within the body and, in turn, provide a relaxing and calming feeling.
