Vitamin B6 and B12
B vitamins are vital for brain function and development, as well as immune function, cardiovascular health, red blood cell formation and DNA activity.
In sleep, vitamin B6 can help to recall your dreams, and help you to get into the whole lucid dreaming thing (here’s a crazy video about that). It also helps to produce serotonin and melatonin, which are both key for sound, peaceful sleep and regulate mood.
There’s a strong link between depression and sleep issues. From difficulty keeping to any kind of sleep schedule, to insomnia, circadian rhythm disruptions and even hypersomnia - deficiencies in B6 and B12 can impact the risk of depression and its related sleep disorders.
Food sources of vitamin B6 and B12: Bananas, carrots, spinach, and potatoes are great sources of B6, and B12 is found in animal proteins like milk, eggs, cheese, and fish.
