Eating Before Bed & Digestion

Meals Before Bed

Eating before heading to sleep at night can have different results depending on an person’s lifestyle. Sometimes eating close to sleeping can be beneficial, and other times it is not.

Weight Gain and Flat Beds

As the body sleeps it is also working to digest and process foods. Lying flat has been shown to have a hindrance on the body’s ability to process food. An adjustable bed frame can easily lift the head the recommended 6-inches to achieve the healthiest digestion experience. This will allow for a better sleep and healthier waking in the morning. 

Many of us eat right before going to bed or we wake up and eat something we shouldn’t probably eat. Many studies have tied eating before sleep to weight gain. Lying in a horizontal position hinder our digestive system. Having our upper body elevated improves the ability of our body to digest food properly. By having your adjustable bed slightly elevated will improve digestion and reduce weight gain.
