Going to bed naked has a whole lot of advantages than you may think and almost every single of of them is backed up by science. If you have ever wondered what benefits exist in you going naked, check out five that are backed up by research.
Sleeping Naked Helps Your Sex Life
Very few things are as good as sliding into bed next to your significant other and feeling their skin on yours. That skin-to-skin contact releases endorphins such as oxytocin (also known as the hug hormone or the cuddle chemical), which puts you in the mood for sex.
Sleeping Naked Might help you Lose Weight
Your body has two types of fat, white and brown. White fat doesn’t do much, but brown fat generates heat and may help you burn calories as you sleep.
A Diabetes study conducted in 2014 and which followed five men who slept in a climate-controlled room set to varying temperatures over four months, found that after a month of the heat being lowered to 66 degrees from 74, the men had almost doubled their volumes of brown fat.
Another study published in the journal Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism suggests that cooler temps might boost your calorie burn by 30 percent. While sleeping nude in a cool room isn’t exactlythe same as putting in a strenuous workout, when it comes to losing weight, every little bit helps, doesn’t it?
Sleeping Naked Is Good For Vaginal Health
Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles have found that sleeping in underwear, especially tight undies or thongs, tends to create a breeding ground for bacteria.
On the other hand, sleeping nude helps your vagina “air out,” and also reduces the chances of bad bacteria throwing its delicate ecosystem out of balance.
Sleeping Naked Is Good For The Sperm
If you and your partner are trying to get pregnant, it may pay to ask him to take of all his clothing before he goes to bed every night. A recent study conducted in Finland found that when men’s testicles are too warm, the quality of their sperm may suffer.
Furthermore, experts believe that sleeping in underwear increases the likelihood of chafing, irritation, or bacterial infections down there.
Sleeping Naked Could Improve The Quality Of Your Sleep
A number of studied have shown that people tend to sleep better in cooler temps than warmer ones. The reason for this has been adduced to the natural body temperature, which naturally declines as you sleep.
As your body temperature declines, your cortisol levels go down and your melatonin levels go up. This is the reason why when it’s too hot, you feel nervous and jumpy and can’t sleep. Due to the fact that wearing pyjamas or sleeping under heavy covers can disrupt your body’s natural cool-down, it can in turn disrupt the quality of your sleep.
However, you shouldnt be too cold either. If you’re so cold that you’re shivering, you’re probably not sleeping deeply. While there’s no one perfect temperature to have a good sleep, scientists and researchers recommends sleeping at ambient temperature of between 25 to 35 degrees centigrade.
