Is Tart Cherry Juice the Secret to a Good Night’s Sleep? 

We already know tart cherry juice has been linked to lowering blood pressure, improving muscle recovery and is a good source of potassium but could it also be the key to a good night’s sleep? A recent viral trend of drinking the juice before bed is being hailed as the latest cure for insomnia in both adults and children. 

According to the Cleveland Clinic, tart cherries contain melatonin and tryptophan, which help with sleep because they increase the amount of melatonin in the body. Research into tart cherry juice as a remedy for a good night’s sleep backs up these claims. A study of 20 healthy adult volunteers looked at how sleep patterns changed for those who drank one ounce of tart cherry juice concentrate 30 minutes before their evening meal for seven days. Those who consumed tart cherry juice saw “significantly elevated” melatonin levels compared to their baseline and those in the placebo group, as well as increased sleep time and sleep efficiency (the percent of time in bed where a person is sleeping). 

If you are interested in trying tart cherry juice for a good night’s sleep, you should reach for 100% tart cherry juice. A single serving of 100% juice counts as a serving of fruits and vegetables per day and contains similar essential vitamins and minerals found in fresh produce. It contains no added sugar– just the same natural sugar found in fruit and vegetables.
