Drinking & sleep: Don't expect a good night's rest

by Thor on Jan. 23rd, 2013

While alcohol is a depressant and can have the effect of making you go to sleep quicker, new research says it doesn't help you sleep better. A review of 27 different sleep studies shows that consuming alcohol diminishes REM (rapid eye movement) stage of sleep, which is considered the most restorative part of the sleep cycle. And the more you drink, the bigger the disruption of the REM stage.
