 Health Benefits

Wild lettuce contains two compounds, known at lactucin and lactucopicrin, that act on the central nervous system. Wild lettuce has the highest concentration of lactucopicrin of all plants, although dandelion root and chicory root are also good sources.

In addition to its sedative and analgesic effects, lactucopicrin is believed to act as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, meaning that it blocks cholinesterase enzymes that slow communications between brain cells. Wild lettuce is also said to exhibit potent antimicrobial activity.

Based on these properties, practitioners of alternative medicine believe that wild lettuce can prevent the following health conditions:

    Alzheimer's disease
    Arthritis
    Asthma
    Atherosclerosis ("hardening of the arteries")
    Cough
    Insomnia
    Joint pain
    Malaria
    Menstrual pain
