Wild Lettuce Extract, Lack of sleep in America is a problem and Dr. Oz was trying to help people find solutions today on his show. Discussions about cortisol levels increasing the risk of heart failure were some of the symptoms of not getting enough sleep. Fatigue and lack of sleep raises cortisol levels and is bad news for your health.
Wild lettuce extract was recommend by Dr. Oz as a solution to your lack of sleep to help you slow down, calm down and get to sleep faster and sleep sounder. The recommended wild lettuce extract dosage was 30mg right before you go to bed. It will have a sedative effect on you and help you drift off to sleep without the aid of sleeping pills.
Celebrity deaths from pills like Ambien have become more popular over the years. Many American’s take Ambien or other types of sleeping pills to get to sleep fast or sleep during abnormal schedules. You can get safer by investigating the lettuce that is sometimes called, “lettuce opium” or “Bitter lettuce” due to it’s white look and sedative effects.
It’s described over at Wikipedia that the history of Wild Lettuce was used as a replacement for opium. From Wikipedia it says, “L. virosa was used in the 19th century by physicians when opium could not be obtained. It was studied extensively by the Council of the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain in 1911. They discovered two chemicals responsible for the properties of L. virosa; lactucopicrin and lactucin. In the United States, the plant experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 1970s. Today the plant is un-scheduled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), meaning it is legal to grow, purchase and own without prescription or license.”
