Many people believe that drinking alcohol before bed can help get a good quality of sleep. If you share the same opinion then you are wrong.
Recent research suggests otherwise. In fact alcohol may help you fall asleep quickly but alcohol can actually disrupt sleep quality.
Drinking alcohol before bed can lead you to sleep soundly during the first half of the evening, before you become restless and agitated in the rest of the night.
The results of a study published in the Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research journal, indicate that alcohol causes people to wake up earlier than usual. The research was conducted by a team from the University of Akita, Japan.
They provide three different doses of pure alcohol at intervals of three weeks to the respondent. Then, they tested the quality of sleep. The study also found that drinking too much before bed not only interfere with sleep but also have a negative effect on the body’s digestive system and can cause other diseases.
Not only that, he added, the results of this study indicate that drinking actually cause insomnia and does not make sleep quality better.
