Dr. Oz: Are Early Birds or Night Owls Healthier?


A woman told Doctor Oz that she is an early bird, but her husband is a night owl.  Is one healthier and more natural than the other?

Dr. Oz said that teenagers become like bats, and stay up late and sleep late.  Basically, melatonin makes us sleepy and tired while steroids wake us up, so depending on your body, these levels will fluctuate at different times for different people.  In addition, there is something called sleep pressure in all of us that pushes us to fall asleep.  So whether you are an early bird or a night owl is in fact a biological matter that is embedded in each of us!
