Improved Health-: It is rich in vitamin A, which is an essential vitamin required for healthy eyes as well as the growth and development of bones. It also strengthens the immune system.
Birth Defect Prevention-: Iceberg lettuce is a good source of folate. Intake of folate-rich foods by pregnant women helps prevent birth defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly.
Blood Clotting-: Iceberg lettuce also contains vitamin K, which aids in the production of proteins required by the body for normal blood clotting.
Weight Loss-: Iceberg lettuce has high water content and is very low in calories. Eating a lettuce salad will fill your stomach without adding to the total calorie count consumed per meal. Therefore, it encourages weight loss efforts. But do remember that while the leaves will not add the calories by themselves, the dressing might. So, keep it light if you are eating lettuce for weight loss.
