Alcohol doesn't lead to good night's sleep
NBC NEWS — Having a drink before bed to help you fall asleep may have the opposite effect.
In a new study, ten adults were assigned to drink varying amounts of alcohol an hour and a half before they went bed. Their heart rate was measured while they slept.
They found the more alcohol a participant drank, the higher their heart rate during sleep. This leads to symptoms of insomnia, a lack of deep sleep, and difficulty staying asleep.
