Drinking Lettuce Water Can Help You Sleep…

Not backed up by science!

Here’s a new health tip from TikTok with zero science to back it up: People online claim that drinking LETTUCE WATER can help you sleep.


You basically just make tea.  But instead of a teabag, you shove some iceberg lettuce in a cup . . . pour hot water on it . . . and let it steep for 10 minutes.  And you can add a peppermint tea bag for taste if you want to.



A TikTok video about it has millions of views.  And the woman who posted it claims it worked REALLY well.  But a sleep expert at Columbia University says it sounds like nonsense.
