One of the biggest problems men are having right now, is that inflation is making…
Note: If you live in a very far northern part of the world, or you’re working 60 hr weeks indoors, read until the end – I’ve got you covered with a pretty cool esoteric cheat code.
This is something I probably don’t talk about enough on socials.
The sun regulates virtually all life on Earth.
We all NEED it.
But the modern world has us working weird hours, always indoors, always on computers, which is destroying testosterone levels in addition to things like sugar, obesity etc.
Beyond its obvious physical benefits, it’s very clear at this point that sunlight has been a profound impact on things like mood, depression, sex drive, and particularly serotonin.
(You don’t need SSRI’s, you need the sun!)
In this blog post, we’ll dive into the power of the sun in relation to testosterone levels, sex drive, and anti-depression.
Exposure to sunlight, particularly in the morning, can stimulate the production of luteinizing hormone (LH), which is responsible for signalling the testes to produce more testosterone.
In other words, the sun quite literally tells your balls to get to work. Without access to the sun, you’re not accessing this “testosterone signal”.
Sunlight exposure also increases the production of Vitamin D, which has been consistently linked to higher testosterone levels in men. Not only this, but supplementing vitamin D is nowhere near as powerful as the sun is in terms of the quality of this ‘signal’.
Sunlight As An Anti-Depressant
Sunlight has long been recognized for its mood-enhancing properties. Exposure to sunlight triggers the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is often referred to as the “happy hormone.”
Lack of which leads to you being “Mr. Sad” or “Mr. Depressed”. Again, you don’t need SSRI’s, you need sunlight exposure.
In addition to serotonin, sunlight exposure also increases the production of endorphins, which are known as “feel-good” chemicals that can help reduce stress, anxiety, and symptoms of depression. Mix this in with some lifting or cardio and you’re onto a big winner – outdoor workouts are king here.
How Much Sun?
The ideal amount of sun exposure for optimal testosterone levels can vary depending on factors such as location, season, and individual characteristics. If you’re darker skinned, you’ll probably need an extra 30-50% longer than the advice below.
However, generally speaking you’re looking at getting about 20-30 minutes of sunlight exposure on the face, arms, and legs, at least 2-3 times a week, during the morning hours for maximum benefit.
Exposure to sunlight in the morning is particularly beneficial as it helps regulate the circadian rhythm, which can optimize hormonal balance, including testosterone production.
What If You Can’t Access The Sun?
This is a major objection in the modern world, and luckily I have an answer for you.
Red Light Therapy.
Treat yourself with this every morning, and make sure your testes are not covered up, so the red light can have the strongest impact. The benefits appear to be mostly through blood flow to the area, which then leads to benefits like:
- Boosts testosterone and sex drive
- Skin Health & Anti-Aging
- Muscle Recovery & Physical Performance
- Joint Pain & Inflammation
- Melatonin & Sleep
I still personally believe that the sun is still king, but this is the next best option.
In fact, it’s one of the eight areas of Testosterone Cheat Codes in my brand new eBook – these are elite testosterone habits that will take you beyond your current competition.
