Sleep Men, & Testosterone!
Make a few changes in your sleep patters, and you'll kick start your testicles into producing more testosterone.
Poor sleep habits can have a devastating impact on T levels, especially if the habits are chronic.
The sweet spot for most men will fall somewhere between 7 and 8 hours. The key is to find out exactly where your sweet spot is.
Everyone is a little different.
How do you find out what your number is?
Simple, pay attention!
Do you feel good when you wake up? Is your libido up or down?
Do you have a morning erection? That's a good sign that you got your number right.
Are you sharp? That's another sign.
Once you get to work, does the conversation flow, can you bang out a coherent email in a few seconds, or do you sit staring blankly at the screen.
The funny thing about sleep is, too much or too little can have the same effect. Have you ever noticed how you feel tired all day when you've had too much sleep?
Here's a very important tip!
Once you find your number, never, ever fall back asleep after you've hit that number.
If you do your testosterone levels will go flat line, and you'll be toast the entire day
My sweet spot is 7 hours and 10 minutes.
If I go to bed at midnight, and get up at 7:10, I'm good to go. Now I can fudge a bit, 10 minutes here or there, but generally, 7:10 is the number for me.
If I get less than that, I'm useless all day. If I get more, it's just as bad.
The vast majority of the HGH produced by your body is secreted at night while you are in deep, slow wave sleep.
To maximize human growth hormone production, you want to make sure you make it into this deep sleep mode every night.
Here's what you need to do to make that happen.
If you exercise regularly with high intensity, and follow the guidelines above, you'll have no problems falling into deep, slow wave sleep every night.
If you are a heavy snorer, or if you have full blown sleep apnea, you're going to have a tough time getting adequate levels of sleep.
According to research coming out of the Israel Institute of Technology, men who suffer with sleep apnea produce lower levels of testosterone, resulting in decreased libido, sexual activity, and sexual satisfaction.
Fortunately, there is a cure for sleep apnea.
Your doctor probably doesn't know about it because it's not a drug. You won't see any commercials for it, because the drug companies can't sell it.
What is the cure?
Switch to a Paleo diet!
You'll lose weight automatically, and eliminate the food allergies that are the driving force behind your condition!
How do I know it works?
Because it worked for me!
