Strange Health Condition CAUSING Insomnia!?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

How utterly miserable is insomnia?

You get all tucked in to your cozy bed, turn off the light, and then, without an invitation… insomnia shows up and makes sleep IMPOSSIBLE.

If you’ve struggled with insomnia at all, you’ve probably tried a long list of remedies.

From over-the-counter sleep aids to prescriptions, to even trying sleeping with a fan, ear plugs, and an eye mask, you’ve done it all.

Yet nothing works.

But what if your sleeplessness is not a matter of needing stronger and stronger drugs, but something else entirely?

A new study suggests that insomnia could be caused by this odd health condition.

I’m talking about simple nutritional deficiencies.

Not getting your 40 winks leaves you restless, irritable, and in a fog… and it can have serious long-term effects on your health.

Studies show that we can pinpoint a diverse number of diseases to not getting your beauty rest, including high blood pressure, anxiety, weak immunity, depression, mood swings, dementia, and weight gain.

But now, there may be a different reason for your sleepless nights.

Your way out of insomnia may just have to do with not getting enough of certain vitamins. Nutritional deficiencies are much more common than you would think.

In fact, it’s estimated that close to 80 percent of us are missing at least one crucial vitamin or mineral in our diet (and most of us are missing more than just that one!).

Let me show you which vitamins are the most likely to affect your sleep if you don’t have enough.

  • Vitamin C. You can find vitamin C in citrus fruits and peppers. It’s one of the most potent antioxidants, and it can calm inflammation, support your immune system, and build strong bones and teeth. According to a study published in 2009, 100mg of vitamin C along with 400 IU of vitamin E was linked a reduction of sleep apnea (a disruptive sleep disorder that causes snoring and gasping for air).
  • Vitamin B6. Our body needs the brain chemicals melatonin and serotonin for good sleep, but without vitamin B6, you can’t produce those sleep hormones.
  • Vitamin E. You probably know how important vitamin E is for healthy skin and hair. But you may not know how necessary this nutrient is for sound sleep. Vitamin E is also great for your brain because it helps to prevent memory loss and cognitive decline.
  • Vitamin D. You know this nutrient as the sunshine vitamin that helps keep your bones strong, but it does MUCH more than that. Vitamin D helps regulate mood and prevent inflammation. There is also growing research that this nutrient can help with sleep as well. Vitamin D deficiency has even been linked to shorter sleep duration.

The best way to get these nutrients is to make sure you are taking a good multivitamin every day.

P.S. Still not sleeping well? Try this remedy that’s hidden right in your very own backyard.
