Vitamin D and Bs & Sleep Quality

Summary of the interview with Dr. Stasha Gominak, neurologist and sleep specialist

  • Young kids/adults are presented with sleep problems like little or no RAM sleep due to vitamin D and K2 deficiencies. Not sleeping results in not developing correctly.
  • Acetylcholine is needed for proper paralysis when sleeping so the body can repair itself, and acetylcholine production needs vitamin D
  • Children used to spend time outside without sunscreens. Not many indoor air conditionings existed before the 1970s, and 80s
  • Vitamin D deficiencies lead to vitamin Bs deficiencies. The repairing that brain does during sleep needs vitamin Bs, especially B12 and B5 (Pantothenic acid, also called vitamin B5 is a water-soluble B vitamin. All animals require pantothenic acid to synthesize¬†coenzyme A¬†(CoA))
  • Vitamin D should be above 40
  • Take vitamin B100 or B50 for 3 months and see how you feel. May have to stop as you build a reservoir of it.
  • You may need more vitamin Bs initially while the body repairs but gradually needs less. Listen to your body as waking up and see how you slept, any pain, etc.
  • Signs of vitamin deficiency that affects sleep quality: morning fatigue, kicking a lot while sleeping, snoring when too paralyzed (the right amount of paralysis needed for repair work), runny nose, obligate mouth breathers.
  • Too much vitamin B (like B100) causes arthritis pain, and stomach issues may have to stop and assess. With vitamin B, too much and too little can be a problem. Suggesting to take vitamin Bs for 3 months then stop and assess to see if needed more as the body builds a reservoir of it and continue to use.

Dr. Stasha Gominak discusses how vitamin D (from sun) is needed to improve the stability of gut bacteria, which in turn help synthesize B vitamins necessary to facilitate deep sleep.
