The vitamin you DON’T think about is affecting your sleep

Most people don't know that having proper levels of vitamin B is one of the keys to quality, deep sleep. But very few people are talking about it! In fact, there is a ton of research to show that B vitamins have some incredible benefits to our sleep and the overall processes in our body. B vitamins release energy from carbohydrates and fat; they help break down amino acids; and they deliver oxygen and energy to different parts of the body.

And if you're feeling tired all of the time, you very well could be experiencing a B12 deficiency. So join Dr. Michael Breus as he explains why B12 and B6 vitamins are so important for your overall health, and why it's one of the underrated keys to getting quality sleep. He discusses how you can get B vitamins from your food, the proper dosage for supplements, and what the why the lack of B vitamins in your body can have some serious consequences for your sleep.

  1. I think I need B supplements. Problem is I don’t eat in the mornings. So if I take it mid day when I eat that might keep me awake. 😮

  2. My husband and I took B12 for a long time… got tested and we both had real high levels of B12. We both had to stop for several months, and now we just take it once a week.
