Hi, I'm Linden Schaffer, and I wanted to talk to you today about the fact that your vitamins could be causing some of your sleepless nights. Most people take multivitamins or daily supplements of some kind in order to promote optimum health in their bodies, and while this is good, often times people can have bad reactions which cause sleepless nights. Multivitamins contain your typical vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, B, C, K. In terms of minerals the most common additives are calcium, iron and zinc. Now, while studies have shown that not one vitamin in particular can cause sleepless nights, oftentimes this combination of unknown quantities of the vitamins could produce some sleepless nights for you. It has been shown that vitamin B12 and Vitamin B6 can do things such as lower your melatonin levels and cause wildly vivid dreams. These are two things that could be keeping you awake. Taking daily vitamins and supplements is crucial for your overall good health. So, I don't recommend you stop taking them if you're not sleeping very well. Instead, why don't you try to take them in the morning, let's say after Breakfast, or even after lunch. This way you have plenty of time to digest the vitamins and the nutrients before you go to sleep that night. If you make this kind of lifestyle change but you don't notice any change in your sleep habits, I would suggest consulting a sleep specialist. It's possible that other foods that you're eating or other things that you're doing in your life are causing an interaction that is causing a little bit of insomnia.
