Cherry Juice Boosts Sleep

Wednesday 14th July 2010

Drinking cherry juice could help insomniacs to sleep better, according to new research. Scientists at the University of Rochester, New York, found that drinking natural, unsweetened cherry juice before going to bed resulted in insomniacs getting up to  17 minutes more shut-eye than normal.

Researchers claim that the fruit boosts sleep as it is rich is melatonin - a hormone used by the body to regulate sleeping and waking.

Sleep experts believe that the results are encouraging as the sleep-improving fruit juice is completely natural and is not associated with any negative side effects - unlike some sleeping medications.
