Soda and Sleep
Coffee and alcohol are known to be drinks that should be avoided later in the day to not be kept up all night. Soda is the third drink whose consumption should be reduced to get a quality sleep.
There has been a link between people who drink sugary, caffeinated drinks and sleeping less than five hours a night. The most obvious issue with soda is its caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant that blocks chemicals in the brain intended to make you sleepy, keeping you alert at night. Even if you drink soda in moderation at dinner, it can stay in your bloodstream for six hours, making you feel the effects well past bedtime.
Sugary sweet soft drinks like soda are largest source of sugar in America, making up almost half the consumption of added sugars in the American diet. As a contributor to obesity, soda increases the risk of sleep apnea and loss.
Carbonation in soda increases bloating and stomach pressure that can lead to heartburn. Heartburn usually flares up at night and makes you more likely to suffer from sleep conditions like insomnia, daytime sleepiness, and restless leg syndrome.
