If your brain is too excited, you’ll likely have trouble falling asleep. One of the things that may be happening is that your brain is excited from TOXINS. This may also be the case if you have trouble staying asleep. Food affects sleep quality!
Food Toxins Disrupt Sleep
One culprit may be the additives in your food. Aspartame, MSG, artificial coloring, nitrates, and even soy contain “excitotoxins.” These chemicals can alter brain chemistry and lead to insomnia.
Stay away from foods with these additives. Remember, food affects sleep!
You’ll get a better night’s sleep, and you’ll lower the risk of damaging your brain’s sensitive nerves.
Read labels carefully.
Notice how the quality of your sleep changes when you’re more vigilant about eliminating toxic food additives.
Toxins in Food Cause Health Problems
And that’s not the only reason to avoid these toxins. They can cause many health problems, including obesity, migraines, memory loss, and hearing loss.
Without a good night’s sleep it’s very difficult to function well during the day. We all know this.
So, if you’re having sleep issues look to your food as a possible disruptive source.
