Vitamin D is a hormone that interacts with intranuclear receptors to effect transcriptional changes in many cell types including those in gut, bone, breast, prostate, brain, skeletal muscle, and the immune system. Inadequacy of vitamin D is widely prevalent, and leads to the classic diseases of bone demineralization as well as to more recently recognized problems such as nonspecific pain and noninflammatory skeletal myopathy, which may disrupt sleep and directly cause daytime impairment… Expand
The interfaces between vitamin D, sleep and pain.
TLDR
The supplementation of vitamin D associated with good sleep hygiene may have a therapeutic role, not only in sleep disorders but also in the prevention and treatment of chronic pain conditions. Expand
Linking Vitamin D and Sleep
TLDR
The aim of the chapter is to summarize the current knowledge on the association between Vit D serum levels and the most prevalent sleep disorders, namely OSAS, RLS, narcolepsy, and insomnia. Expand
The role of vitamin D in obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome
TLDR
Current knowledge on the association between OSAS and vitamin D levels is summarized and potential for use of vitamin D supplementation in OSAS patients as a means of reducing the incidence of cardiovascular disease is considered, a comorbidity common in both conditions. Expand
Vitamin D associations and sleep physiology-promising rays of information.
TLDR
The largest study published to date with both objective sleep measures and measured vitamin D concentrations and the first such study in community-dwelling older men is reported and noted higher intakes of vitamin D were associated with delayed onset of sleep, a paradoxical finding. Expand
1,25(OH)2D3 attenuates sleep disturbance in mouse models of Lewis lung cancer, in silico and in vivo
TLDR
1,25(OH)2D3 treatment may attenuate sleep disturbance in Lewis lung cancer‐bearing mice, and become a promising strategy for treating cancer symptom clusters to ameliorate the quality of life of patients with cancer. Expand
Vitamin D and obstructive sleep apnea: an unexplored relationship in PCOS patients
TLDR
The authors evaluated biochemical parameters in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients, finding an important association with autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) and women with PCOS and AITD demonstrated a deficit of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) in comparison to women with only PCOS. Expand
A meta‐analysis: Does vitamin D play a promising role in sleep disorders?
TLDR
Vitamin D could play a promising role in sleep disorders and more data are required to confirm the efficacy of vitamin D supplementation for improving sleep disorders. Expand
A Brief Review of the Effects of Vitamin D on Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
Besides vitamin D supplementation as a potential add-on to long-term immunotherapeutic treatment, a recent laboratory study pointed toward a beneficial effect of vitamin D to improve the efficacy of glucocorticoids in relapse therapy. Expand
Autism and lack of D3 vitamin: A systematic review
TLDR
A systematic review of the literature for the period January 1, 2010 through June 15, 2014 according to PRISMA guidelines, aiming to investigate the complex biological interplay between VD, metabolism, immune system and nervous system in ASD found an imbalance in VD metabolism probably exists and may be associated with the condition. Expand
Vitamin D and sleep duration: Is there a bidirectional relationship?
TLDR
Given the potential to implement interventions to improve sleep and vitamin D supplementation, understanding this relationship further could represent a novel way to support and improve health. Expand

Mounting Evidence for Vitamin D as an Environmental Factor Affecting Autoimmune Disease Prevalence
TLDR
The accumulating evidence pointing to a link between vitamin D and autoimmunity is discussed, suggesting increased vitamin D intakes might decrease the incidence and severity of autoimmune diseases and the rate of bone fracture. Expand
Vitamin D and the Immune System
TLDR
Considering the influence of vitamin D on the immune system, it may have potential as a treatment for immune-mediated diseases, even if additional research is required to better quantify dosage. Expand
Vitamin D and multiple sclerosis: epidemiology, immunology, and genetics.
TLDR
While a small vitamin D intervention study did not find an association between vitamin D and MS progression, this study had little statistical power, and larger trials will be needed to assess the therapeutic potential of vitamin D. Expand

TLDR
Serum levels of 25(OH)D are the best indicator to assess vitamin D deficiency, insufficiency, hypovitaminosis, adequacy, and toxicity. Expand

TLDR
The hormonal form of vitamin D up-regulates anti-microbial peptides, namely cathelicidin, to enhance clearance of bacteria at various barrier sites and in immune cells. Expand

TLDR
Current evidence suggests that improving vitamin D status and/or using vitamin D receptor agonists may be useful in MS and IBD. Expand

The purposes of this article are to examine the prevalence of vitamin D inadequacy and to review the potential implications for skeletal and extraskeletal health. Expand
Vitamin D status, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, and the immune system.
TLDR
Vitamin D-deficient mice on low-calcium diets developed the most severe IBD, and 1,25(OH)2D3 treatment of mice onLow-cal calcium diets improved IBD symptoms, however, the best results for IBD were observed when the calcium concentration was high and 1-25( OH) 2D3 was administered. Expand
Cytokines in immune function and sleep regulation.
TLDR
A mechanistic explanation for sleep homeostasis is presented and the accumulation of SRSs in cerebrospinal fluid during prolonged wakefulness provides very strong support of the hypothesis that sleep is regulated, in part, by humoral agents. Expand
