5 foods that interfere with sleep

If you have trouble sleeping, probably often wonder whether a midnight snack you will not come good? For many people the answer is "Yes", but you must be very careful what you eat in the wee hours of the day. Some foods interfere with restful sleep.
 Canned meats. Perhaps many of you are used to make a ham sandwich for a midnight snack. Ham, bacon, sausages and smoked meats, however, contain amino acids that trigger the production of chemicals in the brain that keep us from falling asleep. They stimulate the body and send a signal to the body that it is time to wake up.

 Chocolate. Do you drink a cup of hot chocolate at night? Watching TV or in bed with a book ... Beware of chocolate! Many people are sensitive to caffeine and even a little bit of sweet black will prevent sweet dreams. Chocolate also contains amino acids that stimulate brain activity.
 Energy drinks. Red Bull and other energy drinks are high in caffeine. They make us alert and full of energy. After a cup of energy drink very difficult to sleep.
 Tomato sauce, chili, pizza, and spicy foods. Digestive problems are a common cause of sleep problems. Many people do not make such a connection. Acidic and spicy foods can cause bad heartburn and bloating, which can prevent you from sleeping peacefully.
 Alcohol. If a glass of beer makes you feel more relaxed after dinner, you will find that it is only the beginning of the night trouble. Alcohol will dehydrate you and you need to drink more water. This is one of the main causes of repeated nighttime trips to the bathroom.
