Dill shares the stage with garlic.They both have “bacteriostatic” or bacteria-regulating effects. In addition bacteriostatic properties, dill is a very good source of calcium. Calcium is important for reducing the bone loss that occurs after menopause and in some conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. It is also a good source of dietary fibre and a good source of the minerals manganese, iron and magnesium.
