A good night's sleep helped with cherry juice

2nd November 2011

Research from the School of Life Sciences at Northumbria University has found that drinking cherry juice can help people gain an extra 25 minutes sleep a night.

It also indicated that those who regularly consume cherry juice have improved quality of sleep as it significantly increases the levels of melatonin in the body, the hormone which regulates sleep. The findings from the study, which followed 20 healthy volunteers who rank the juice twice daily for seven days, could benefit those who have difficulty sleeping due to insomnia, shift work or jet lag.
