Our Current Healthy Obsessions: Sleep Support
Whether we're a night owl or an early bird, sleep is something that every single person needs to thrive. We all have experienced those days following a night of poor sleep and how it can leave us feeling lethargic and a little grumpy. Our body relies on those hours at night to restore and repair itself and when it doesn’t get that our overall health is sure to suffer. Since quality is just as important as quantity we’ve all made an effort to make the most out of our sleeping hours. These are my functional medicine team's favorite tools to support a restful night's sleep!
Andrea C. - chiliBLANKET
"Not only do I love weighted blankets for the coziness, but also for the help they have provided me with sleeping! I specifically love the SleepMe brand because I do not get too hot with it and it feels comforting while also providing me with a deeper sleep. I also utilize my blanket at the end of the day just to sit on the couch and watch tv with my family and it helps me decompress!"

Grayce M. - Klova Sleep Patches
"As someone who has struggled immensely with sleep in my own health journey, I know firsthand how much it impacts everything. After trying virtually every sleep aid under the sun, I can't recommend Klova Sleep Patches enough. They are made with melatonin, magnesium, l-theanine, GABA, and other natural ingredients, and they truly work wonders. I wear them on my forearm to help with absorption since the blood-brain barrier is thinner, but they're super easy to stick on anywhere!"
Emily F. - Organic India Peaceful Sleep Capsules
"When I need a sleep-cycle reset after a long and tiring week, I love to take a couple of Organic India's Peaceful Sleep capsules and diffuse whatever lavender oil I have on hand! The capsules include the nootropic Gotu Kola which promotes healthy, non-drowsy, yet restorative sleep. I can say without a doubt that I wake up feeling refreshed every time I use this combo!"
Yvette J. - Moon Juice Dream Dust
"As a night owl, I thrive in the evening hours. However, that makes for a long day when I have to get up early - which is every day! Instead of dragging through each day, I love taking Moon Juice's Dream Dust before bed to help my mind wind down and prep my body for an early bedtime. I love that this adaptogen blend comes in a powder form so I don't have to take yet another supplement and I can add it to whatever beverage I like, whether that's a cup of tea or just plain hot water with lemon."

Dr. Will Cole - The Magnesium
"Magnesium is necessary for healthy sleep as it acts as fuel for your brain's GABA receptors that are responsible for regulating your body's sleep system. The problem is, most magnesium supplements that you buy over-the-counter have low bioavailability. That's why I formulated The Magnesium with Albion chelated magnesium plus Magtein™ (magnesium L-threonate), the only form of magnesium proven in animal studies to cross the blood-brain barrier. Since I need to be well rested for my days seeing patients, writing books and articles, and recording podcasts, I make sure to take this every night before bed so I don't toss and turn throughout the night!"
