If you have a habit of spicing up your dinner, it’s about time that you consider slowing it down. Eating spicy food just before bedtime can result in a string of problems.
The trick is to have a good break between the time you ate spicy food and the time you go to bed. If this interval is small, then it could result in gastric disturbance and indigestion, resulting in a bad sleep.
Similarly, another research has shown that eating spicy food at night could trigger nightmare causing brainwaves though it does not have concrete evidence. While it is recommended to avoid spicy food at night, you can consume it in the daytime since it has fat burning properties and ability to improve the metabolism.
