How Food Additives Affect Sleep

Aspartame, MSG, artificial coloring, nitrates, and even soy contain “excitotoxins.” These chemicals can alter brain chemistry and lead to insomnia.

Learn to read labels. Stay away from foods with these additives. You’ll get a better night’s sleep. And you’ll lower the risk of damaging your brain’s sensitive nerves.

And that’s not the only reason to avoid these poisons. Food additives and sleep are linked, as are other health problems. Additives can cause many health problems, including obesity, migraines, memory loss, and hearing loss.

As we discuss week after week in articles here at Joyinmovement, eat REAL food. That keeps it REALLY simple, ensuring the best possible night’s sleep. That way when people ask you if you’ve heard about the side effects of additives in food, you’ll answer, “Yes, but it doesn’t pertain to me!”
