You are not alone.
There are over 40 million Americans who have a chronic sleep disorder or suffer from lack of sleep.
For sleep deprived men, a new study finds that skipping sleep can drastically lower testosterone levels in healthy guys in as little as one week.
The recent study funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute found testosterone levels dropped significantly in men who did not get enough sleep – A drop equivalent to 10-15 years worth of aging.
Not only was lack of sleep linked to reduce libido and T levels, it was linked to lower energy levels, poorer concentration, fatigue and decrease muscular strength.
The team of researchers at the University of Chicago Medical Center found that men who slept less than 5 hours a night for over a week had lower testosterone than when fully rested.
Testosterone is what separates the men from the boys.
It is also the primary sex hormone that determines male sex characteristics and also responsible for increased muscle mass, bone mass, libido, potency and sperm production in the body.
Anything to do with being male and male virility is some way or another linked to testosterone.
Any man looking to increase their virility, strength, stamina or libido should play close attention to their own testosterone levels.
If you dream of 6-pack abs but instead suffer from an abdominal “spare tire” that won’t go away, it may be due to hormonal imbalances more than anything else, according to new research.
Extra abdominal “belly fat” can indicate a number of hormonal imbalances including high estrogen levels, low testosterone, low DHEA (a hormone from the adrenal glands), high insulin and high cortisol. All of which are bad for men and their virility.
