Tart Cherry Juice, a Natural Therapy for Insomnia
Insomnia is difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep, or having nonrefreshing sleep for at least 1 month.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), US: “Insufficient sleep is associated with a number of chronic diseases and conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression…it is also responsible for motor vehicle and machinery-related accidents.” Fortunately, researchers found out a new sensible, safe way to help sleep problems: drinking tart cherry juice daily.
Poping a pill such as the heavily hyped Sonata, Rozerem, Lunesta or Silenor can help you snooze away happily as the drug advertisements states. But drugs often have side effect which can include hallucinations, thoughts of suicide, loss of coordination, fever, “sleep driving” while not fully awake and memory problems.
But here’s good news for people wanting a more sensible, safer way to help sleep problems. Researchers say they’ve found what could be a natural and tasty solution for insomnia — drinking tart cherry juice daily.
With tart cherry juice, you must not be worried. Tests on patients with insomnia showed drinking the tart cherry juice appeared to help people sleep through the night better, without waking up.
Tart cherries’ natural sleep-enhancing benefits could be the result of their relatively high content of melatonin — a natural antioxidant to help induce sleepiness at night and wakefulness during the day.
It is recommended people drink 8 ounces of the tart cherry juice every morning and night to have a sweet sleep and avoid other severe diseases.
