GET BETTER SLEEP NOW!
You know that a lack of sleep can make you grumpy and foggy. You may not know what it can do to your sex life, memory, health, looks, and even the ability to lose weight.
Sleep specialists say that sleep-deprived men report lower libidos and less interest in sex. Depleted energy, sleepiness, and increased tension may be largely to blame.
For men with sleep apnea, a respiratory problem that interrupts sleep, there may be another factor in the sexual slump. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism in 2002 suggests that many men with sleep apnea also have low testosterone levels. In the study, nearly half of the men who suffered from severe sleep apnea also secreted abnormally low levels of testosterone during the night.
Sleep plays a critical role in thinking and learning. Lack of sleep hurts these cognitive processes in many ways. First, it impairs attention, alertness, concentration, reasoning, and problem solving.
SLEEPING LESS MEANS MORE WEIGHT GAIN!
Studies have shown that people who sleep less than 7 hours a day tend to gain more weight and have a higher risk of becoming obese than those who get 7 hours of slumber. It's believed to be because sleep-deprived people have reduced levels of leptin (the chemical that makes you feel full) and increased levels of ghrelin (the hunger-stimulating hormone).
NOW FOR THE FACTS
Impaired sleep is associated with low testosterone in US adult males:
Results from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a study performed on 2,300 men aged 16-80 in the United States, they found increasing age, impaired sleep and elevated BMI is associated with low testosterone. It is important, therefore, that evaluation and treatment of reduced serum testosterone should also include improving sleep duration in combination with weight management.
