Lack of Sleep Lowers Testosterone

In a podcast with Neuro Scientist and founder of the Center for Human Sleep Science, Matthew Walker explains the link between lack of sleep and low testosterone levels. 

A 2011 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported the effect of one week of sleep restriction in healthy, young men. The study found that the healthy men had lower testosterone after being sleep deprived from their base sleep of 9 hours to 4 hours a night. 

Their findings suggest that constant sleep deprivation will cause low testosterone levels.
