According to Good Health Magazine (November 2015) tart cherries are loaded with the sleep hormone melatonin, which means they might just help you sleep.



In a study at Louisiana State University in the USA, adults who drank 230ml of tart cherry juice twice a day for two weeks enjoyed an average of 84 more minutes of sleep a night.

Cherry's have also got that all important antioxidant thing going on so will help fight those free-radical monsters.

According to Cherry Active Australia, cherries can also assist with sports recovery, uric acid and joint mobility. They are particularly handy in fighting gout pain!

Tart cherry juice can be found at selected health food stores and on-line.

Or, given it's almost cherry season, you could just eat a crate or two!
