5 Foods That May Cause Weird Dreams

3. Valerian root

Very similar to the effects of melatonin, valerian root can be used as a sleep aid but can also have effects on your dreams. The flowering plant’s roots are usually brewed for tea and aids sleep. Vivid dreams may occur as a side effect of valerian, which is why it’s recommended to take only a couple of weeks at a time. The overconsumption of this rooted plant can be the reason your dreams are too vivid and too wild to explain.
