5 Reasons Why You Should Sleep On Your Left Side

When we sleep, everyone of us has a unique sleeping position. We can sleep on our right side, left side, or on our back according on our preference. However, according to research, sleeping on your left side is the most beneficial position for your body because it has a number of beneficial effects. Here are a few examples of them.


1) When you sleep on your left side, food waste is more easily transported to your large intestine and then to your colon, which is beneficial for digestion. When this occurs, you will have an easier time eliminating waste materials from your body. In addition, because the stomach is located on the left side of the body, sleeping on your left side will allow your pancreas and stomach to hang properly in their respective positions.


2. it is beneficial to the heart. When you sleep on your left side, the pressure on your heart is lessened and the blood flow to the heart is improved.


3.Pregnant women should sleep on their left side because it helps to promote the circulation of blood to their hearts, relieve pressure on their backs, and boost the flow of blood to their fetus when they are sleeping.


4.When stomach acid enters the esophagus, it causes a burning and uncomfortable sensation known as heartburn. Sleeping on your left side, on the other hand, can aid to reduce this problem because the stomach is located on the left side of the body.


5) It may help to relieve back pain: Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors including injury, stress, medical disorders, inflammation, and more. Sleeping on your left side, on the other hand, can alleviate this problem by lowering the pressure on your spine.
