Seth Roberts has been collecting anecdotes from people taking vitamin D in the early morning and reporting improved sleep. He thinks the body might interpret it like sunlight. Robb Wolf, on the other hand, finds that taking VD3 at night works... (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)
