Nowadays it’s typical to stare at screens for most of the day. Regardless of whether you are watching a movie, checking your Instagram feed, or working it’s clear that technology is essential in our lives.
When using digital devices you’re exposed to blue light. Blue light is a high-energy visible segment of the light spectrum between 380-500nm that can affect our sleep cycle. More specifically it affects our circadian rhythm, which helps determine our sleep patterns.
The circadian rhythm is the body's master clock, it controls the production of melatonin, a hormone that makes you feel sleepy. If you use digital devices frequently you may have a reduction in your melatonin secretion, hence a decrease in your quality of sleep.
University of Chicago researchers discovered that people who sleep less than five hours per night have lower levels of testosterone than those who get appropriate night rest.
Poor rest reduces testosterone levels no matter your gender, and this reduction brings fluctuation in your libido. Blocking blue light can help you get a better quality of sleep, being a remarkable initiative towards getting a better night’s rest and increasing your testosterone levels.
