When my dad was alive he had an incidence of gout and I told him about the cherry juice from health food stores. He had great relief! Am SHARING this with others. Happy to get the word out about this natural method of gout pain relief. Also up and useful votes.
Drinking a glass of tart cherry juice in the morning and the evening may be a better and a safer way to treat insomnia and add nearly 90 minutes of sleep to your night, according to researchers at Louisiana State University.
Tart cherries are a natural source of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle, say Frank L. Greenway, MD, director of the outpatient research clinic at the LSU Pennington Biomedical Research Center, and Jack Losso and John Finley, professors in the School of Nutrition and Food Sciences at the university's Agricultural Center in their study, "Tart Cherry Juice Increases Sleep Time in Older Adults with Insomnia" presented at Experimental Biology 2014.
HOW MUCH TO CONSUME FOR THIS BENEFIT: 8 fl oz. twice daily.
jeyaramd, Isn't Dr. Oz wonderful? His demeanor and ability to explain things so clearly makes him likable and popular. Give tart cherry juice a try. It really did make a difference for me. 1/2 a cup in the morning and evening was all it took to help balance my sleep patterns. I felt great too. I appreciate the votes - sweet dreams ;)
Tart cherry juice certainly appears to have many benefits. Thanks for your thorough research and information on studies conducted on the benefits related to insomnia. I have to admit that I too have difficult sleeping. Perhaps its all the late night studying. However, due to unpredictable time schedule; I know have trouble sleeping when I do have time. I will definitely try this out. Thanks for an awesome hub. On a side note, Dr Oz, is one of the best doctors out there. People respect his opinions and advice from within the medical community as well. Doctors sometimes prescribe metonin to help patients with sleeping diffuclties as well. Voted up. And awesome.
