I am addressing the following question specifically to Bill Roberts and/or Brock Strasser, as their expertise in this matter is both acknowledged and appreciated.
I currently work on a 12:00am to 8:00am shift, and I am curious about the effect this may have on my natural testosterone production. What I am wondering is whether the increase in testosterone production during the night is due to the body being in a sleep state, or due to the body’s natural biological day/night cycle. Clearly, being awake all night and sleeping during the day is an unnatural pattern, and I am uncertain as to how to go about timing prohormone intake so as not to adversely affect endogenous T production. Will the body continue to produce greater amounts of endogenous T throughout the night as conditioned by years of functioning on a normal schedule, or is it the restorative nature of sleep itself that causes the increase in T production regardless of what time of day it takes place?
Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.
