If you're a naturally hot person, you'll understand my struggle to stay cool at night and get some prized hours of sleep. I tried just about everything to cool down, from a fan in my room to sleeping with an ice pack to even taking the top sheet and extra blankets off my bed. But nothing seemed to help, especially in the middle of the night when I'd be sweating instead of sleeping.

Then I found the one thing that changed my sleep for good: NatraCure Cold Therapy Socks ($25). I had been eyeing these socks and some similar items for a while before I decided to take the plunge. Let me tell you — after trying these cold pack-filled socks, I haven't looked back. The socks are super comfortable to sleep in and have kept me from ripping the blankets and sheets off my bed at night.

Even if you're not a hot sleeper, the NatraCure Cold Therapy Socks have a ton of other uses, including helping sore and tired feet, soothing plantar fasciitis and arthritis, and even reducing inflammation and swelling for people who are pregnant or undergoing chemotherapy. I often throw on the socks after running long distances while training for a half-marathon to give my feet some much needed relief.

The one downside is the cooling gel pads don't stay cold for long. So, if you want to stay cooler longer, or need consistent relief from any medical condition, you may want to get two pairs of socks to always have a set of cooling gel pads in the freezer to swap out.

After trying the NatraCure Cold Therapy Socks for a while, I can confidently say these have helped me in more ways than one. From getting better sleep to recovering more comfortably after a workout, these socks are worth every penny. Yes, there are still some nights when I can't seem to get comfortable or have a hot flash that's simply out of control — but those nights are few and far between since these socks arrived at my door.
