What are nutrients in lettuce?

1. Rich vitamin C

Lettuce is a major source of vitamin C. And the vitamin C can boost patients’ immune system, which will help you fight with infection.

2. Mineral elements

Lettuce contains calcium, iron and copper and other mineral elements. Calcium will alleviate chronic kidney disease patients’ bone problems such as bone pain and bone fracture. Iron and copper can promote the produce of hemachrome synthesis, which helps stimulate the development of red blood cells. Through this, patients’ poor appetite and anemia can be improved greatly.

3. Adjust acid-base balance

Lettuce belongs to alkaline foods. Eating lettuce together with some acid foods such as whole grains and meat has the function of adjusting acid-base balance.

4. Prevent constipation

Lettuce is rich in fiber which helps stimulate the secretion of gastric juice and peristalsis of intestine. In this way, it increases the contact area of digestive juice and foods, which is helpful for the digestion and absorption of your body. Besides, some wastes will also be excreted, preventing constipation.

However, patients with end stage renal kidney should avoid eating lettuce, because kidneys in this stage have failed to filter these mineral elements and keep them in a balanced state. More lettuce intake means to put a strain on your kidneys, which will lead to further kidney damage.
