Lettuce is composed largely of water, about 95%. However, the remaining parts of this vegetable, are very important; they are represented mainly by vitamin substances. The vitamins present in good quantity in Lactuca sativa are: betacarotene (from which vitamin A is generated), B1, B2, B3, C and E.
Lettuce is very rich in fibers and has a substantial quantity of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, but especially iron, which is very useful in case of anemic individuals.
It is mostly composed of water which results in a composition with a very low level of fat.  This is useful in ensuring a good supply of vitamins and minerals as opposed to a basic low-calorie dish.
One of the unexpected qualities of lettuce is that it is a mild sedative. The substantial quantity of water makes it also a valuable source for rehydration of the body, besides helping to fight water retention. The vitamins and antioxidants make it an ally against cellular aging.
