Do Cherries Cure Insomnia?

prairie-fruits

Could cherry juice help cure insomnia? We use tart cherries in our rice pilaf, tart cherry lemonade and tart cherry mimosas.

According to new research, cherry juice could get you ready for bed more easily. Studies showed that those who drank cherry juice in the morning and at night were able to sleep 84 minutes longer than those who received a placebo.

At Farm Stand we use tart cherries in our rice pilaf, tart cherry lemonade and tart cherry mimosas. You could say dining at Farm Stand literally helps you sleep at night!
