I tried taking vitamin D the evening first, and I was pretty anxious and could not sleep even with only 2000 iu/day. I switched to morning in past 2 weeks and I have been sleeping like a baby ever since. I think my explanation for sleep... (more)

I've been consuming two tablespoons of ground flax seeds a day. (Fwiw, this is how I believe Seth Roberts takes his flax, which I privilege because his self-experimental results are impressive.) Previous threads suggest that flax should be... (more)
