INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT ROMAINE LETTUCE



Romaine Lettuce is an excellent source of Vitamins A, C and K, minerals, manganese and chromium.

In addition, romaine lettuce is a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and the minerals potassium, molybdenum, iron, and phosphorous.

Romaine's vitamin C and beta-carotene content make it a heart-healthy green.

The fiber in Romaine lettuce adds to the heart-healthy effects. In the colon, fiber binds to bile salts and removes them from the body. This forces the body to make more bile, which is helpful because it must break down cholesterol to do so, one of the ways fiber helps lower cholesterol levels.
