Problem Sleeping? IMPROVED SLUMBER – the Understated Benefit of Testosterone Replacement Therapy
When it comes to discussing testosterone replacement therapy, physicians usually talk about the obvious benefits. Patients enjoy increased energy levels. They have improved libido (a marked increase in sexual desire) and mental clarity. They see reduced body fat. And they obtain lower cholesterol levels. But one of the most important, and under-mentioned, benefits of TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) is helping men with problem sleeping.
Yes, the many other benefits are advantageous and desirable, but what good are they if you don’t get a good night’s sleep? For most men, a deep, uninterrupted sleep allows them to get out of bed with renewed energy, ready to take on the world. Opposite that, a restless night of tossing and turning leaves you ill-prepared to face the day. You regret getting up out of bed, hitting the shower, and the commute to your workplace. You experience problem-solving and concentration difficulties that make it harder to do your job, and your performance suffers. And by the end of the work day you have no energy left for activities, whether on your own or with your friends and family. You just want to hit the couch and watch TV.
Tests show that a solid night of sleep actually ups your testosterone level. In fact, men who sleep less than five or six hours per night have, on average, 10% less testosterone in their body. So sleeping well aids in testosterone levels, and increased testosterone levels result in better sleep.
The benefits of a restful night are well-established. It keeps your heart healthy. It reduces stress and depression. Studies have shown it even helps you lose weight and makes you smarter.
And it’s also well-established that Testosterone Replacement Therapy helps you sleep better.
SO WHY AREN’T YOU ON IT??!!
It may not get as much attention as increased energy levels and lower body fat, but sleeping well is just as important. It is the foundation that all the other TRT benefits build upon.
If you’re not sleeping through the night and waking up refreshed, look into Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
It CAN change your life and make you a whole new man.
