Dr. Stasha Gominak Discusses Sleep and Vitamin D Pt. 1 (by ETMC1)
Great video on vitamin D by a neurologist talking about the effects of D and Cpap on her patients, together with relevant research. The idea is low vitamin D can cause lots of neurological problems - in addition to global problems throughout the body.
It’s 1 hour + runtime.
I love the idea that vitamin D is not just a bone building hormone, but a global hormone telling the body to repair itself - and fix any number of things that can go wrong in the body. I love the idea that it can repair the brain.
"We are organized to use our body when awake and repair it during sleep."
It’s also interesting that if the vitamin D levels get too high, a number of low vitamin D symptoms re-emerge.
It’s interesting the idea that people should test their vitamin D levels to optimize their dosage.
The right test is D25OH and the right level is 60-80 ng/ml.
For every 1% increase in energy from saturated fatty acids, cholesterol levels rise by 1.3 to 1.7 mg/dl

Of course, not all saturated fat is equal, so this is an average over several studies. A few more tidbits from this article:
- Lauric Acid (C12:0) preferentially increases HDL so affects cholesterol in a positive way
- Stearic Acid (C18:0) has no impact on serum cholesterol concentrations
researchers believe that very young children take naps because so-called sleep pressure builds rapidly in their brains — that is, the need for sleep accumulates so quickly during waking hours that a nap becomes a biological necessity. It is not just a question of how much total sleep that children need in 24 hours. Possibly because of the intense synaptic activity that goes on in their highly active, highly connected brains, young children are less able to tolerate long periods of time awake.
