Why should we sleep naked – 5 unsuspected advantages

Surprisingly, it turns out that sleeping naked is not only sexy, but also has many health benefits. In this article, we offer you five scientifically proven and undeniable facts about sleeping the way your mother gave birth.

1. Better sleep quality

A recent study in Australia shows that some forms of insomnia are caused by improper regulation of body temperature during nighttime sleep. Another study found that regulating body temperature in bed can significantly improve sleep quality.

Most interesting, however, is a Dutch study that shows that if you lower the temperature of the surface of the body (that is, the skin) without affecting the temperature of the body in depth, a very high quality of sleep is achieved and leads to a deeper sleep and longer time spent in the deepest phase of sleep.

So one thing is clear – thick and heavy covers and too warm clothes during sleep will not help you much.

2. Melts Belly Fat and Lowers Cholesterol

The natural cooling of the human body at night has been proven to lower cholesterol levels in the body. Cortisol, better known as the stress hormone, is responsible for a number of health problems, including increased blood pressure and increased cholesterol, sleep disturbances and increased appetite, a weak immune system and even hormonal imbalance.

Between 10pm and 2am when the body is most relaxed, cortisol levels drop the most, reaching their lowest for the day. After this hour interval, the body gradually increases the production of cortisol to prepare you for the new day and so that you can feel a surge of energy after waking up.

When you haven’t slept well, you wake up with abnormally high cholesterol levels, and this leads to increased appetite and a tendency to overeat, especially with sweet foods. Needless to say, it all piles up on the belly, which is the last thing we want.

3. Stimulates the production of anti-aging hormones in the body

If your bedroom is warmer than 21 degrees, it inhibits the release of growth hormones and melatonin. Melatonin is released in total darkness.

It causes a slight, but very important for the body cooling at night. When the body temperature decreases, the release of anti-aging hormones increases. In addition, many studies show that sleep itself also triggers the release of growth hormones, which are vital for looking young and attractive.

4. A healthy body

When sleeping without clothes, as we have already mentioned, a greater amount of growth hormone is released. It, in turn, is responsible for a healthy body and for the recovery of our body tissues.

A study by the University of Warwick shows that those who “gift” themselves less than 6 hours of good sleep are many times more at risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Insufficient sleep is closely related to increased levels of appetite, which in turn is linked to increased insulin production. At the same time, when insulin levels in the blood increase, fat burning is reduced and appetite control is lost.

5. The level of oxytocin increases

People who have the healthy habit of sleeping naked are favored to “produce” more of the hormone oxytocin, called the hormone of happiness. This hormone is associated with sexual desire and activity, with orgasm, with the fight against stress and depression. Oxytocin lowers blood pressure, lowers the risk of intestinal inflammation and improves intestinal peristalsis.

Sleeping naked with your partner will increase the release of oxytocin, especially when you “accidentally” touch each other. And of course we can’t miss the most important thing – sleeping naked together with your partner will predispose you to more intimate experiences.

Well, have we now convinced you to forget about warm pajamas the next time it’s time to get under the covers?
