When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, it’s all hands on deck. Whichever form of sleep aid you choose, getting a proper nights sleep is imperative to peak physical and cognitive performance. Lack of sleep can influence your attitude, energy levels and even your eating habits the next day.

Melatonin is the main ingredient in most sleep options available on the market and is a drug-free, naturally occurring hormone that works with your body’s chemistry to promote healthy sleep cycles. Below are a few sleep aids that are meant to help you relax and drift off to a good night’s sleep, but that actually taste delicious. The only decision you have to make is whether you want a traditional and relaxing tea, restful, berry-flavored gummies or a chocolate sleep supplement that contains the perfect amount of shut-eye in every single box.

1. Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night Tea

Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night Tea promotes a good night’s sleep by using valerian. Known as one of nature’s great relaxing herbs, valerian is an extremely popular mellowing herb in Western traditions and its use for the occasional sleeplessness has been recognized since the second century. Nighty Night Tea uses only the highest quality herbs and with their calming blend of valerian root, passion-flower and lemon balm, you get a mildly bittersweet and minty, earthy yet pleasant taste.
