Whenever people come to see me and complain that they can’t seem to get a goods night sleep the first thing I suggest is tart cherry juice concentrate. It helps produce a nice deep, relaxing sleep using nothing but Natures goodness. How does it do it? Let’s look at a few of its best qualities!
Melatonin- tart cherry juice concentrate contains naturally occurring melatonin! Melatonin is the hormone the body naturally makes to make us feel sleepy. Supplying some in the diet gives the body an extra boost when its time to sleep!
Antioxidants- as in TONS! Tart cherry juice has one of the highest ORAC scores for any food. ORAC is basically a scale measuring how many antioxidants a food contains. This makes it extremely anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer. Two good things for a super food! I know from personal experience it helps with arthritis in fingers.
Flavor- If you like cherries you’ll love this stuff. Its delicious and its fun to drink something that tastes great AND is great for your health.
You can find Tart Cherry Juice concentrate at most grocery stores. I suggest mixing 2 tablespoon in 8oz of water 30 minutes before bed.
