38:39 There are two types of K2. MK-4 is from animal products. MK-4 is processed quickly by the tissue and will go to your testes and brain for cell messaging. MK-7 is bacterially derived, formed in the gut and from fermented foods. MK-7 travels to the liver and the bones.
40:49 Every tooth has an immune system.
41:47 Dentin can repair itself, to a certain extent, though enamel cannot. It is a function vitamins A, D and K2.

52:18 Nighttime airway dysfunction induces a stress response.
53:57 We only diagnose sleep apnea at its most severe form. The core problem is poor jaw growth.
54:33 Upper airway resistance syndrome impacts children greatly as they are going through crucial brain development and their brain is starving of oxygen.
54:48 In the stages of deep sleep the blood brain barrier relaxes and lets the cerebral spinal fluid in to replenish and remove metabolites.
56:47 Daytime tongue posture, tongue to pallet, holds your airway open and strengthens your tongue muscles to keep your deep airway muscles activated while you sleep.
58:49 Make a video of yourself sleeping. You shouldn’t move at all while you sleep.
59:54 You get nitric oxide when you breathe deeply through your nose. The balance of nitric oxide in your body is crucial for mitochondrial health.
