Insomnia and sleep disturbances are frequently reported by pregnant women. This randomized, double-blinded and placebo-controlled study has examined the effects of lettuce seeds (Lactuca sativa L.) on pregnancy-related insomnia.

Lettuce seed

100 pregnant women (20-45 years) have been enrolled (gestational age: 12 to 36 weeks). They received a placebo or 1000 mg of lettuce seeds for two weeks. Supplementation were taken at night.


An improvement in the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index has been measured in both groups, but the reduction was greater in the lettuce group (p = 0.03 after adjustment). No safety concern has been highlighted in this study, either in the mother or in the newborns.

Therefore, lettuce seeds may be a natural solution for pregnancy-related insomnia.
