Salads are the oldest garden culture known in antiquity. The name of one of the most common types of lettuce comes from the Latin word Lactuca, meaning "milk". These plants contain a milky sap, bitter lactucin, similar in appearance to milk.
Lactucine is an alkaloid that has a beneficial effect on the nervous system, improves sleep, and lowers blood pressure. In combination with vitamins, lactucin strengthens the walls of blood vessels, which makes it especially beneficial for hypertension and cardiovascular insufficiency.
