In this video, I’m going to tell you how to sleep better at night. Many people suffer from numerous sleep issues and disturbances, such as trouble getting to sleep, frequent waking to urinate, sleep apnea, and restless leg syndrome.

Vitamin D can improve all of these sleep issues. Not only can it improve sleep quality, but it can also improve gut health and immune function.

Vitamin D works synergistically with magnesium, which improves cramping, restless leg syndrome, heart palpitations, and high cortisol levels. If you're taking magnesium for these issues and it's not working, it could be because you need vitamin D. Vitamin D is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories.

Sleep, diet, and exercise are vital for your health, with sleep at the top of the list. The nerves in the hypothalamus that control sleep are full of vitamin D receptors. If you’re obese, diabetic, or aging, your need for vitamin D dramatically increases.

Less than 40 ng/mL of vitamin D can negatively affect your health. Vitamin D levels should be between 70 and 100 ng/mL or more for therapeutic benefit.

Blood tests detect the inactive form of vitamin D and can’t tell you if vitamin D is reaching your cells. Try taking at least 30,000 IUs of vitamin D3 for better sleep, and remember to consume plenty of water daily. Cut down on dairy to limit calcium intake and take vitamin K2, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B6, the cofactors of vitamin D.

For better sleep, try the following sleeping tips:
•Take vitamin D with cofactors at the last meal of the day
•Make sure the room is cool
•Avoid electronics and bright lights 2 hours before bed

    Magnesium oil spray on bottom of my feet and underarms has been a game changer…I no longer dread going to bed, fall asleep quickly and sleep 8-9 hrs. If I wake up up and can’t get back to sleep quickly I use more spray. I can’t tolerate taking much magnesium orally so this has been a Godsend!

      Two things that have helped the most with sleep. Magnesium L-threonate and SPM. The SPM eliminates inflammation that can cause low level pain. Too much magnesium L-threonate and you can sleep away the day

    After my root canal is extracted next week. I am having a adxeral tumor removed. Then maybe get on bio identical hormones . Progesterone / estrogen replacement is a huge need in menopause and peri menopause

For sure more than 20 years now and im over 40 now.. So Always when i wake up at night, my mind is already racing. Like my thought’s instanly go to all over. And i just cant silence my thought’s at all. I just cant find peace in my mind. And i have tried everyting imaginable and unimaginable tricks. Its like living in a curse.
