Just a few drops goes a LONG way…
Right before sex with my wife, I use a few drops of this…
As soon as I rub these drops onto my scrotum, the most extraordinary thing happens…
My penis gets a bit bigger, a bit fatter, and more engorged all around…
And my wife’s eyes light up in excitement as she sees the massive towel-hanger growing between my legs.
Has your doctor prescribed you a “nature pill”?
Let me ask you something… How often do you go outside?
Because I’ve just read a study showing that people who spend time in nature report feeling less stressed than those who don’t.
The research shows that time spent outside can even lower stress hormones such as cortisol that disrupt men’s natural testosterone levels.
So just how much time do you have to spend outside to protect your T and reduce stress?
Well, the researchers found that just 20 minutes in nature can significantly reduce stress hormones.
The results have serious implications for stress-related diseases such as obesity, low T, and high blood pressure.
This researcher carried out the investigation at the University of Michigan. The journal Frontiers in Psychology published the results.
Over the past 10 years, there has been quite a lot of research looking at the effect of nature on health.
“Many studies show a positive influence of nature exposure on health and well-being.”
Still, there is relatively little research into the specifics.
What type of nature exposure is best?
And how much do we need?
“But there is little understanding about how much or in what form nature experiences should be for best effect.”
The results of previous research were so promising that doctors were already recommending that their patients get out into nature more often.
“Healthcare providers in North America and Europe have begun to write ‘nature pills’ to motivate patients to take a nature break.”
Which makes knowing the specifics of “nature pills” all the more important.
To get some information on this, the researchers recruited 36 people who lived in urban areas.
They had the participants spend at least 10 minutes in nature three times a week for eight weeks.
“During the eight-week study, urban dwellers were asked to have a nature experience at least three times a week for a duration of 10 minutes or more.”
The participants provided saliva samples before and after some of these nature experiences.
“Participants provided saliva samples before and after a nature experience at four points over the study period.”
Saliva contains a lot of things that tell us about what is going on in the body – including a couple of very important markers of stress.
This experiment used some of the most well-known salivary markers of stress – cortisol and alpha amylase.
Multiple human studies have shown that cortisol goes up when people are more stressed.
The same is true of alpha amylase.
So, what is the effect of nature on these stress markers?
And how much nature exposure is required to affect them?
Sitting or strolling in nature can reduce stress marker alpha amylase by almost 30%!
“Four salary alpha amylase, there was a 28%/ per hour drop for participants that were sitting or sitting with some walking.”
Time spent in nature also led to a significant drop in cortisol levels as well.
“A nature experience produced a 21% per hour drop in salivary cortisol.”
This is a massive effect.
High cortisol plays a huge role in weight gain, blood pressure, and many other chronic diseases.
“Prolonged elevation of cortisol interferes with learning and memory, lowers immune function and bone density, and increases blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease, and weight.”
The drop in cortisol was not dependent on the participants engaging in a low-level or relaxing activity (as it was with alpha amylase).
“Activity type did not influence cortisol response.”
The researchers found a rapid improvement in stress levels in 20 to 30 minutes of nature activity.
“The efficiency of a ‘nature pill’ per time expended was greatest between 20 and 30 min.”
More time in nature was even better – but the most rapid improvements in stress levels was seen in the first half hour.
“After 30 minutes benefits continued to accrue, but at a reduced rate.”
The study indicates that just 30 minutes in nature per day could have enormous health benefits.
“The results provide a validated starting point for healthcare practitioners prescribing a nature pill to those in their care. This line of inquiry is timely in light of expanding urbanization and rising healthcare costs.”
You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about diagnosing and treating any health-related problems.
