Tart Cherry Juice Shown To Improve Sleep In Seniors

April 28, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study presented at a recent scientific meeting makes the case that a regular dietary regimen of tart cherry juice effectively combats insomnia, a disorder that has been linked to higher levels of chronic pain, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and dementia in older people. In a small clinical trial, seven insomniacs whose average age was 68 drank eight ounces of tart cherry juice twice daily for two weeks. A two-week washout period followed, then two weeks when they drank another beverage. The people were monitored and completed questionnaires. Those who drank the Montmorency tart cherry juice in the morning and at night slept an hour longer each night (averaging 84 minutes) and their sleep was more efficient.
