VIDEO: This 7 Second Trick has Been Leaving Wives Speechless.

If you’ve been reading my other articles about the importance of maintaining your testosterone levels past the age of 40 you’re certainly aware of a few things by now:

First, guy’s t-levels have been in free fall for more than three decades and it’s causing significant alarm in the medical community. Since 1985, free testosterone in healthy men has fallen by 30% simply due to environmental factors, endocrine disrupters in our food supply, and a dangerous rise in obesity.

Some guys may ask… “Who cares? Why should we worry about our T-levels at all?”

They ask this question because most guys mistakenly think high testosterone simply equates to bulging muscles, insatiable libidos, or agressive “alpha male” type behavior. But the reality is testosterone is the hormone that makes men, men. It provides a sense of well being, healthy energy levels, focused concentration, proper bone density, along with the well publicized effects such as maintaining a healthy libido and retaining muscle mass.

The bottom line is if your testosterone is low you’re going to suffer from some serious health conditions such as premature aging, obesity, diabetes, gynecomastia (man boobs), heart disease and even premature death.

And second, research has shown there are a number of relatively simple steps you can take to naturally stimulate new testosterone production and make up for some of this lost ground.

You’re probably aware that certain types of exercise such as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is like a shot of rocket fuel to your T-levels, as is drinking the proper level of water each day, but today I want to share one of the easier, and best kept secrets to boosting your T and you’re going to love doing this one.

Sleep.

It should come as no surprise, Americans are sleeping less now than ever before. We live in a 24/7 society where always on communications with the office, 24-hour cable TV, the Internet, social media and tons of other distractions all vie for our attention.

But sleeping less than 6 hours a night is guaranteed to crash your T-levels. In just one week (or a single all-nighter) your free testosterone levels will drop to that of a man 10 – 15 years older than you are.

And if you think you can just “catch up” on your sleep on the weekends, forget about it. Packing in the sleep on weekends does nothing to restore lost testosterone levels.

So How Much Sleep Should You Get?

That’s the tough question there’s no single right answer; everyone’s different and each of us requires a different amount of sleep to keep our body running at peak efficiency. About 12% of the population perform at their best with only 6 hours sleep, and around 7% require 10 hours per night. So it varies and you’ll have to experiment to see what works best for you.

My suggestion is to start with 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep and pay particular attention to how you feel about 2 hours after getting up each morning. How’s your mood? What’s your energy like? What’s your disposition like? Positive and happy, or gloomy and depressed?

After a few days of consistent results adjust it by 15 minutes. If you were happy, energetic and positive reduce it by 15 minutes. If you were grumpy, lethargic and depressed add 15 minutes.

Repeat this process until you find the threshold where your mood and energy levels change.

Once you know this number you’re probably pretty close to your minimum threshold of sleep each night. Mine’s 6.5 hours per night, and I generally try to make sure I get 7 solid hours M-F and 8-9 on Saturday and Sunday.

How much will this boost your T-levels?

Once again this depends on your body and how sleep deprived you are when you start. It will take about a month of sleeping at (or above) your optimal level for you to get a boost in your free testosterone.

In a study conducted at the University of Chicago test subjects saw their free testosterone levels rise by a minimum of 13% to as much as 51%.

So it’s a significant boost for not having to “do” anything (at least nothing hard) to get these results.

Ok, sure you might have to give up a couple late night episodes of Game of Thrones, but I guarantee it’s worth it. I promise, you’ll be sending an email thanking me after you feel the effects.

One more thing…

In addition to sleep there’s been some exciting new research studies showing a significant boost in total and free testosterone levels using certain formulations of over the counter dietary supplements.
