1. Improves Digestion & Reduces Heartburn

Research shows that sleeping on your right side will make your heartburn symptoms worse, while left-side sleeping may relieve it.

Also, gravity will allow food to move more easily from the small intestine into the large intestine, which will help with digestion.

2. Spleen

Switch to the left so that drainage goes back to the spleen, which is located on the left of your body. Gravity is doing all the work for you, all you have to do is change the side you sleep on!

3. Heart

Left-side sleeping will also speed up lymph drainage toward the heart.

4. Lymphatic System

Did you know that the left side of your body is the dominant lymphatic side?

Switch to the left so that your body will have more time to filter all the toxins and lymph fluid that has built up in your body.

5. Circulatory System

If you have varicose veins, sleeping on your left side will improve your circulation. The vena cava, which is your body's largest vein, is located on the right side of your body, so sleeping on the other side will reduce pressure on that vein.
