Sleeping with Cherries

They’re shiny, red, small and sour. Tart cherries are a wonder, but not for these deceptively simple characteristics. Their magnificence comes from the incredible power within their small skins to help harness better health, including relief from sore muscles and joint health. Even more impactful is that eating Montmorency tart cherries can help you sleep better at night.

What’s inside a cherry that can lead to better sleep? This is due to the high concentration of melatonin found inside the Montmorency tart cherry – CherryFlex’s cherry of choice. Why is melatonin helpful to a better night’s sleep? It controls the feeling of sleepiness at night, as well as wakefulness during the day.

“We were surprised at how much melatonin was in cherries, specifically the Montmorency variety,” says Dr. Russel Reiter. He’s been studying melatonin for over 30 years and is the leading scientist on melatonin and its beneficial effects on human health.

The “Dean of Melatonin Research,” Dr. Reiter says there is an, “extremely significant quantity of melatonin” in tart cherries. He recommends ingesting the benefits directly through eating cherries, and one great way is with CherryFlex softgels, tart cherry concentrate, and Red Tart Chery Gel.
