A good night’s sleep naturally regulates athletic performance, hormone production, mood regulation, memory and mental functions which all contribute to a healthy sex drive. Yet 1 in 3 Americans have sleep disorders, and its no surprise that diet and digestion is the #1 culprit. If you’re a heavy meat eater overloading your body with protein you can’t break down, toxins you’re not removing, and nutrients your body can’t get to, over time your body’s natural biorhythms will pay the toll. Vegetarians have to mind their meals before bed as much as the next person, but on the whole have been less likely to report issues with sleep, sex drive, or indigestion. In fact, many vegans report needing less and less sleep.
