Healthy Reasons to Sleep Au Natural
Did you know that sleeping naked is actually good for your health? That's right, it's time to take off those clothes and slip into your bed in your birthday suit! Here's why:
Slows Aging -- At night, your body produces the hormone melatonin to help you sleep. As you are sleeping, the Human Growth Hormone responsible for cellular growth is produced. Both of these hormones are responsible for preventing aging, but are only produced as you sleep deeply. If you are too hot -thanks to those pajamas - you'll have a hard time sleeping, meaning less of the anti-aging hormones are produced.
Better Sleep -- Did you know that your insomnia may be caused by your body's inability to regulate your body temperature at night? Those with a lower skin temperature are able to sleep better, so take off those clothes and let your body cool off for a better night of rest!
Boost Oxytocin -- When your naked skin comes in contact with the nudity of your partner next to you, oxytocin is produced. This hormone is the same one produced post-orgasm, and it helps to counter stress, depression, and high blood pressure. It is the "bonding" or "love" hormone that makes you feel close to your partner, so drop those trousers and get into the buff for a bit more loving!
Fight Cortisol -- Cortisol is the hormone produced by the daily stresses, and it wreaks all kinds of havoc on your health. The levels of cortisol produced tend to drop as melatonin production increases, and being able to sleep cool will help to keep melatonin levels high. If you are too hot and can't sleep, your body will produce too much cortisol - kicking your appetite into high gear the next day.
Increase HGH production -- Without human growth hormone, your body wouldn't be able to produce a healthy amount of cells to repair your muscles, tissues, and organs. Those that get less than 6 hours of sleep a night tend to have less of this hormone, and they are 300% more likely to develop diabetes, weight gain, and other health problems.
Wow, what better argument could there be for sleeping in the nude? Say goodbye to those pajamas, lock your doors, and get ready for a great night's sleep au natural! Why not sleep au natural on one of these snazzy natural mattresses?
