    Ten hours of sleep optimal? Yeah, right.

    Between 6-7 is my magic number. Anything more and Im groggy, plus im too hungry to sleep that long. As men age they need less and less sleep to function to full capacity. Only toddlers need 10 hours.

    I believe that if you can fully simulate night and day while working of shifts (I did) you can redesign your circadian cycle. It takes a while but its really about changing when you produce melatonin and not fully relying on supplementation. The body will only release melatonin in complete darkness. So when you enter REM and the cones in the retina no long sense light intensity the body starts producing melatonin.

    The optimal amount of sleep for an individual will vary from person to person. 10hrs may be optimal for some, but not others. In their opening paragraph they say or go against the bodies internal clock. That's what you should be listening to.
