When to Drink a Bedtime Blast

When to Drink a Bedtime Blast

Q: How long prior to bedtime should I consume a Blast recipe for sleep?

-decorchic

I would suggest 2-3 hours before bedtime.

Giving the body 2-3 hours to digest foods can help prevent indigestion before bedtime. Lying down with a full stomach can lead to acid reflux and digestive disturbances like gas and bloating. Digestion is a complex process that involves all major organs in the body, enzymes, hormones, and energy. By consuming food 2-3 hours prior to bedtime, the body has adequate time to go through the metabolic process of digestion and return to homeostasis, resulting in a better nights sleep.
