Our sleep is affected by several factors, such as our mental health and sleep hygiene. There is also growing evidence indicating a correlation between our gut health and sleep.
So how does sleep affect our gut health and vice versa?
If your body is digesting a large meal, it can be difficult for you to relax and fall asleep. As your mind and body get ready to rest, the metabolism slows down. Hence, late-night snacking can trigger digestive issues that interfere with sleep. Eat dinner at least 2-3 hours before bed. This is enough time for your body to process the food.
