Once they’re in the colon, they are excreted in the morning. This is why you should sleep on your left side. It helps this process run more smoothly. In fact, experts also suggest that after a big meal, people take a quick power nap on their left side. It will help digest the meal and give you more energy. Number two, heart health. Your heart is located on the left side of your body. So it makes sense when experts like Dr. DARD say that you should not sleep on your right side but instead sleep on your left side by sleeping on your left side. You allow for a smoother blood flow towards your heart. The last thing you want to do is put stress on your heart.
