Did you know that sleep increases testosterone level? Most Americans today are sleep deprived. Many are proud of it like a working badge of honor. Many are just burning the candle at both ends. Lack of quality, regenerative sleep is a huge factor in the declining testosterone levels in men.

How Sleep Increases Testosterone Level

sleep increases testosteroneMost of our testosterone is produced when we are in a deep REM sleep. This is why our Testosterone levels peak when we wake up and are lowest right before we sleep. It is also one of the reasons behind “Morning Wood.” If you do not experience Morning Wood consistently, you should contact Hormone Therapeutics to learn about and get tested for low T.

If you do not get enough deep quality sleep, your body will not produce testosterone needed for optimized health. University of Chicago researchers found young, healthy and virile men who got less than five hours a night of sleep for just week had 10-15% lower testosterone levels than when they were fully rested.

Another study measured testosterone levels in the morning and showed that the men who slept for 4 hours had an average testosterone level of 200-300 ng/dl. Comparatively, men who slept for 8 hours had average testosterone levels of 500-700 ng/dl.

Cortisol is a stress hormone that is very destructive to testosterone levels when in excess. Make sure to focus on and improve the quality of your sleep. Reduce exposure to blue light in the evening, turn o­ff your computers and cell phones at night, avoid caff­eine in the afternoon and evenings, and take warm showers before bed.

 

 

 

 

 

Sleep Increases Testosterone: How to Improve Sleep

  • Sleep in complete darkness. No nightlights or glowing alarm clocks.
  • Close wi-fi networks to shut down electromagnetic frequency waves
  • Get exercise during the day. Melatonin can help as the hormone secreted by the pineal gland to bring on sleep and reset your body clock.
  • Sleep in the cold . . . and naked! For centuries we slept in the cold and our bodies adapted to this natural state and testicles produce optimally when they are colder than your body temperature (why boxers are better than briefs).
  • No computer or smart phone bright displays before bed and no blue lights. The blue light in many electronics impairs the pineal glands ability to function optimally.
  • Simple carbs an hour or two before bed increases insulin levels which increases energy temporarily before you crash.
  • Quality proteins, prior to sleep, and amino acids like L-tryptophan increases melatonin production during sleep.
