Title: Why Lack of Sleep Impacts Male Organ Health

Why Lack of Sleep Impacts Male Organ Health
By John Dugan
  • Almost everyone feels better after a good nights
    sleep, and many men report that feeling tired or
    fatigued can sometimes impact their sensual
    performance, but is there a reason for lack of
    sleep to impact male organ health? Several
    studies have indicated that the answer is
    affirmative now some animal studies are looking
    more closely into specific reasons why male organ
    health might have a connection to sleep or the
    lack thereof.

Recent study
  • One such study is entitled Impact of Sleep
    Deprivation on the Hypothalmic-Pituitary-Gonadal
    Axis and Reproductive Tissue, it used male
    rats as its subjects. (Animal studies are
    typically used in order to test initial
    hypotheses or better understanding learnings from
    basic science.)

  • A total of 56 rats were used, but they were
    treated in segments. The first 16 rats were
    deprived of sleep for 72 continuous hours (three
    days) a second group of 16 rats were chosen as
    controls, and their sleep patterns were not
    interfered with at all. Various markers
    associated with hypogonadism were measured.
    (Hypogonadism is the term used to describe a
    situation in which the body doesnt produce
    sufficient male hormones. Hypogonadism may result
    due to a problem with the gonads themselves, or
    because the hypothalamus and/or the pituitary
    glands, which control the gonads, arent
  • In addition, another 24 rats were divided into 3
    groups of 8. One group was a control group one
    group was sleep deprived and one group was sleep
    deprived and was also given male hormone

  • Essentially, the study showed that sleep
    deprivation in rates did indeed bring about
    hypogonadism. Those rats in the control group had
    normal markers those who were sleep deprived
    were severely lacking in male hormone. (The group
    that was both sleep deprived and given male
    hormone supplementation did have male hormone
    levels similar to the control group.) The lack of
    sleep also dampened the production of nitric
    oxide, which is needed to keep the blood vessels
    expanded during intimate activity.

Other studies
  • These results back up results from earlier
    studies that looked at sleep deprivation and
    reproductive issues in rats. One, Effect of
    sleep deprivation on the male reproductive system
    in rats, found that lack of sleep greatly
    decreased sperm motility (that is, how well and
    quickly sperm move and swim) in rats.
  • All of these studies are looking at actual sleep
    deprivation going without sleep for 3 days.
    Clearly, such results would likely not occur in
    the same way in a subject who gets sleep, but not
    enough say, only 3 or 4 hours of sleep each
    night. But the studies do suggest that
    cumulatively and over time, getting too little
    sleep can result in decreased male hormone and in
    subsequent Male Organ health issues.

  • Men who get insufficient sleep should take steps
    to correct this issue. In some cases, there are
    some simple lifestyle changes that can help such
  • Limiting intake of caffeine in the latter part of
    the day
  • Avoiding computer use near bedtime
  • Making the sleep space inviting (appropriate
    temperature, sufficient darkness, comfortable
    mattress, etc.)
  • Being consistent with bedtimes and wake-up times

  • Getting an appropriate amount of exercise during
    the day
  • In some cases, a person may need the help of a
    medical professional in assessing sleep issues
    and determining possible solutions.
  • Lack of sleep is not the only cause of male organ
    health issues, so to be better prepared, a man
    should regularly apply a first class male Organ
    health creme (health professionals recommend Man
    1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and
    safe for skin) to his manhood. The most effective
    cremes will include L-arginine, an amino acid
    which helps produce nitric oxide, which in turns
    keeps the blood vessels open. The crème should
    also include moisturizers such as shea butter and
    vitamin E to keep male organ skin healthy itchy
    male organ skin can disrupt a good nights sleep.
