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 Glycinate was the key to my sleep issues. Mind settled down and don’t wake up hourly any longer. Big help.

  • @tradermunky1998 says:

    Hey Dr Berg, your magnesium tip for sleep is what is paying off for me, thanks! Took several weeks of taking it to see the effect, but I’m finally getting more than 4 hours. So nice!

      Make sure you don’t only focus on your external body and appearance. Be someone of substance, be empathetic, kind, generous with your time, keep your word, be punctual, respectful towards people and animals, be a person of integrity! 🫶🏻

  • @eduardooramaeddie4006 says:

    Thank you Dr.BERG

  • @marysantiago4139 says:

    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!

  • @briannave7326 says:

    I started drinking 1/2 cup of kefir before bed after you recommended it and I have been sleeping great ever since.

  • @carriehealth says:

    I love the pic of Dr Berg asleep in his jammies! ❤👍🏼👍🏼

  • @ROBBIEDZ says:

    I can’t remember the last time I’ve had 8 hours of sleep (probably around 2012). I always get around 4 to 5 hours

  • @rycmrc says:

    No problems falling asleep the main problem is STAYING asleep 😭

    • @JCX-9 says:

      So true. I fall asleep just fine but then have several pee stops during the night and that ruins my sleep.

    • @neonpandas says:

      Blackout curtains, not eating within 3 hours of bedtime, and Dr Teal’s Sleep Spray with Melatonin & Essential Oils all help me before bed. I stay asleep unless I drink too much water and wake up to use the restroom.

    • @Drberg says:

      Hello, thanks for writing. Here are some tips that might help you fall asleep 👉 https://www.drberg.com/blog/how-to-get-to-sleep

    • @mutantryeff says:

      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

  • @johnmurphy7830 says:

    I didn’t see the link for the vitamin D measurement kit. Could I get it please.

  • @C.N.1 says:

    😂 at those who recommend exogenous ketones to us in natural ketosis in an attempt to get us to stop healthy keto. 😂 I know of someone who says there is no need to fast and to just supplement with exogenous ketones instead. That’s really just his food/sugar/carb addiction trying to justify snacking all day. Now he wonders why he can’t get good sleep. Well… Have a beautiful day, everyone! Stay healthy, and be aware of the slickers, y’all! 👊

  • @akanshsrivastav8269 says:

    In this regard I consider myself very lucky because I get 8-9 hours of sleep every single day

  • @7389 says:

    You had mentioned this before, and I started taking a low dose of Vitamin D and Magnesium a month ago with dinner. It does help, so thank you Dr. Berg!
