Short sleep: <7 hours
Only Vitamin D was associated with short sleep in both senior men and women in this study
- Poor sleep 1.5 X more likely if less than 20 ng of Vitamin D – Feb 2019
- Poor sleep if low Vitamin D, Magnesium, or Vitamin B6 (NHANES) – June 2019 also NHANES
- Comparing High-dose vitamin D therapies two therapies concern Sleep
Sleep category starts with
- Sleep problems cured by vitamin D, etc. – workshops and patient workbooks – Gominak 2018
- Restless Legs Syndrome dramatically reduced by vitamin D, etc
- Iron deficiency is a cause of Vitamin D deficiency Depression
- Overview Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue and vitamin D
- Seach VitaminDWiki for "SLEEP APNEA" 308 items as of Oct 2019
- Search VitaminDWiki for (sleep OR insomnia) Magnesium 228 items as of June 2019

One third of U.S. adults report short sleep (<7 h), which has been linked to negative health outcomes. Inadequate intake of micronutrients across the U.S. adult population has been reported, and a relationship between sleep conditions and micronutrient intake is emerging. This cross-sectional analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES 2005-2016) (n = 26,211) showed that participants with short sleep duration had a lower usual intake (Food + Supplements) of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D in all adults aged 19+ years, and vitamin K in adults aged 19-50 years, even after adjusting for covariates. In addition, participants reporting short sleep had a higher percentage of individuals with intake lower than the estimated average requirement (EAR) across multiple nutrients. Age and gender differences were observed in the prevalence of inadequate intake across multiple nutrients.
Adults aged 51-99 years with short sleep duration had inadequate intake with respect to more nutrients. In females there was an association between short sleep and a higher prevalence of inadequate intake (Food + Spp) for
- magnesium, and
- vitamins A, C, D, E, and K (above adequate intake).
Conversely, males reporting short sleep only had an inadequate intake of vitamin D. Overall, we demonstrate that short sleep is associated with increased nutrient inadequacy, emphasizing the possible need for dietary supplementation.
