Getting a good night’s sleep is of utmost importance—and harder than ever too, due to the unrelentingly plugged-in nature of our society. Adequate deep sleep helps ease stress, anxiety, and aging effects. Plus, it has many healing benefits. These 11 vegan products will help soothe you to sleep—and perhaps more importantly, help you stay asleep. But first, can vegan foods help you sleep better?

Achieving better sleep with plant-based foods

The much-beloved avocado can help with sleep. Their magnesium content means regular consumption may help with relaxation and sleep efficiency, and their potassium levels will also help with nerve, muscle, and heart function. They also contain biotin, which is good for healthy hair, and carotenoids, which are beneficial for the immune system.

Olive oil has also been associated with a better night’s sleep. Drinking olive oil before bed has risen in popularity on social media. Many maintain that this is the best way to enjoy many of the benefits associated with olive oil and that it can also help you feel fuller, which means if you drink it right before bed, you may reduce the risk of being woken with hunger pains. It may also help to relieve other sleep-disrupting issues, like bad digestion and constipation. The truth is, there is little research to suggest that this is necessary. Instead, you can boost your levels of healthy fats by simply consuming it with food, or cooking with it, as extra virgin olive oil retains its health benefits even when it is heated.

Outside of whole, plant-based foods, edible vegan products—such as CBD gummies—can also help achieve a full night of sleep. In 2019, the brand CBDistillery conducted a customer survey, which revealed that 88 percent of consumers found CBD helped with temporary anxiety. Plus, 89 percent said it helped calm their mind and helped them to get better sleep, and 84 percent said it helped to manage pain after physical activity. Studies have also linked CBD with improved sleep, as it is associated with temporarily reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
