A new study from the Louisiana State University suggests that drinking Montmorency tart cherry juice daily will help you sleep better at night. The study was funded by the Cherry Marketing Institute (who knew there was such a thing!) but they didn't have any control in the design or outcome of the study).
Those who participated in the study drank two 8 ounce glasses of the tart cherry juice (one glass in the morning, another in the evening) saw an increase of almost 90 minutes of sleep each night over the two week period. Sounds like a better solution than sleeping pills!
I've been doing this myself for over a month now and I believe there is something to this. I drink a glass before lunch and another after dinner each day now. At night, I feel like I fall asleep a lot faster, often within minutes. I don't feel like I'm waking up as often, but when I do wake up in the middle of the night I am able to go right back to sleep. In the mornings, I am able to sleep much later. I used to wake up on my own before 6:00 am. Now I seem to sleep until almost 7:00 am on my own.
The easiest and cheapest way to get started is to buy a large container of tart cherry juice concentrate. You'll mix it with water, either in an 8 ounce single dose or make a large pitcher to last you a week or longer. I've tried several and don't think any one brand has worked better than the others. In terms of taste, I like this Tart Is Smart Tart Cherry Concentrate, 32-Ounce Bottle from Amazon (affiliate link).
