This is less of a scholarly article and more of a testimony. There is a small list of nutrients that have worked wonders. Here’s the story:
After learning about vitamin D and how it can help sleep, I wanted to give it a whirl. My memory issues sort of felt like lack of sleep and yet I wasn’t that lacking of sleep. Maybe it was sleep quality rather than quantity. So, I now blast my body with vitamin D, which by the way, is not a vitamin. Vitamin D is a hormone. Vitamin D helps your body go into a deep sleep.
Vitamin B-12 is also important to regulate sleep and energy levels. I take a sublingual B-12 supplement in the morning along with vitamin D. Then I take a dose of lecithin granules to get my essential fatty acids. After taking these things, I feel amazing.
My brain begins working properly with these nutrients. My memory becomes somewhat photographic and information sticks in my mind with little effort. When I try to recall things, I can literally see the things in my mind. I am able to analyze concepts, conversations, arguments, and recall information.
I have likely been deficient in these nutrients and supplementing them has worked wonders.
The amounts I take are:
Vitamin D : 2000-4000 UI (about 10 times the RDA)
Vitamin B-12 : 3000 mcg (50,000 times the RDA)
Lecithin Granules : 1 scoop of Whole Foods brand which is about 1-2 tablespoons
If these things help you, please let me know in the comments!
