Traditional Chinese medicine believes that when people eat, they need to consume energy. Because the stomach needs to digest food, and it takes hours, it will consume a lot of vitality. It's the same as sleepiness at night. Because a lot of energy is consumed during the day, the body will naturally feel sleepy and ask for rest at night.

3. Related to disease

The harm of sleeping after eating

The time interval between dinner and sleep can directly affect people's health. According to clinical data, the occurrence of urolithiasis, gastric and duodenal ulcer bleeding, colon cancer, coronary heart disease, hypertension, neurasthenia and other diseases is related to this time interval.

Some people are used to sleeping when they are full, which is just like sleeping to wait for illness. Because sleep soon after supper, most of the tissues and organs of the body begin to enter the state of slow metabolism 'rest', while the gastrointestinal tract is forced to be in the state of 'tense work', resulting in the imbalance of some of the state of the body. This not only affects sleep, more likely to lead to indigestion.

'sleep when you are full' will also cause gastrointestinal peristalsis to slow down, some proteins can not be digested and absorbed, and the residence time in the intestine will be prolonged. Under the effect of anaerobic bacteria, toxic substances such as amines, ammonia and indole will be produced, which will increase the burden of liver and kidney and the toxic stimulation of brain.

Sleep soon after dinner makes the body with less activity in the evening consume less calories, which is easy to cause obesity; it can also cause the increase of blood cholesterol, especially low-density and very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, which is easy to deposit on the arterial wall, cause atherosclerosis, and lead to coronary heart disease and hypertension.
