Drinking before bed disturbs sleeps
Drinking before bed disturbs sleeps (January 19, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From Australia - Drinking before sleeping actually disrupts sleep, according to a report published in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research. Researchers studied 24 volunteers. Participants were healthy and between 18 and 21 years old. They drank alcohol or placebo just before sleep and underwent standard polysomnography and EEG. Results showed that though the alcohol initially worked as a sedative, it later increased activity in areas of the brain known to disturb sleep.
