According to Japanese media reports, a research team from the Pharmacy Department of Okayama University in Japan recently discovered that lettuce lettuce originating in China has the effect of treating allergic rhinitis.
The research team used 21 experimental mice with allergic rhinitis to divide them into three groups. They fed nutrients, nutrients and lettuce stalks, nutrients and lettuce leaves every day. After 3 weeks of observation, the experimental mice fed lettuce had more sneezing and scratching the nose than the rats fed only nutrients.
A research group professor said that lettuce may contain some substances that can inhibit allergic rhinitis, and it is likely to be suitable for humans. In the future, the specific components will be studied in depth.
