The total flavonoids of lettuce seeds can prolong the hypoxia tolerance time of mice. After injecting vasopressin into rabbits, 6/9 had arrhythmia, while the total flavonoids of lettuce seeds could reduce the incidence of salad arrhythmia to 1/9, and the duration of arrhythmia was significantly shorter. Total flavonoids can also significantly reduce chloroform-induced ventricular fibrillation. Experiments show that the total flavonoids of lettuce seeds have a significant antagonistic effect on these experimental arrhythmias [2].
