The claim involves steeping lettuce in boiling water and then drinking the leftover water, which some think can help you fall asleep and stay asleep.
But before you start boiling water and pouring it over your salad ingredients, sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus warns, "To be clear, that has no efficacy whatsoever. I have seen no evidence that would indicate this has anything good for you."
He notes drinking lettuce water will not likely harm you, but it will also not provide you anything beneficial in the way of sleep.
Instead of relying on social media claims to help you sleep, Dr. Breus suggests waking up each day at the same time (even on weekends) to help your circadian rhythm, which tells your body when to sleep.
If you do need to drink something before bed, try Dr. Breus' banana tea recipe!
