Does Tart Cherry Juice Impact Sleep?

It’s 6:00am and your alarm goes off way too early, once again. You are always wondering how you wake up tired, morning after morning, no matter how early you go to sleep. It’s impacting both your workouts and your work life. You’re over it ㅡ as you should be! 

Cheribundi’s tart cherry juice is the dose that does the most: for busy days, better workouts, and a more restful night’s sleep. This compelling claim is due to the presence of the naturally-occurring melatonin within tart cherries. In fact, a recent study at the Louisiana State University found that participants who consumed two, eight ounce servings of Cheribundi a day experienced 90 more minutes of effective sleep per night.

Strength in Numbers… but Not From Counting Sheep

But don’t just take it from us. Take it from the many sports teams that enjoy tart cherry juice for these reasons. Athletes respect the ritual of eight ounces a day (sometimes, twice a day) because Cheribundi powers the type of performance that pops. You can’t be your best self when you’re tired and still recovering from yesterday’s workout. 

Tart cherry juice boasts a high level of anthocyanins, which is a naturally occurring antioxidant that may reduce inflammation. These anthocyanins, in tandem with the naturally-occurring melatonin, aid in faster recovery and a more quality night of sleep, so you can recover and reset for everyday excellence. This means less of feeling sore, achey, and tired when you need to be at your best ㅡ and more of your most empowered performance. 

A One-of-a-Kind Extraction Process

Of course, this naturally occurring melatonin can only be fully taken advantage of if the extraction process keeps in as many nutrients possible. We mastered a one-of-a-kind, not-from-concentrate extraction process to ensure that we extract pure strength from every tart cherry we take from the orchards. This process was developed ten years ago by scientists at Cornell University who were interested in optimizing the presumed health benefits of tart cherries. We still use it today, and consider it our love letter to tart cherries… and to you, of course! 

The proprietary “gentle juicing” process includes limited heat and the least intensive processing done with the tart cherries, so that every bit of their naturally-occurring melatonin and anthocyanins make it into your cup to assist with sleep and faster recovery. 

Begin Your Ritual

Many report experiencing more restful nights of sleep as an added bonus of their eight-ounces-a-day ritual. We recommend beginning the habit of your own tart cherry juice ritual by opting in for the Cheribundi 7-Day Challenge — eight ounces for seven days straight. Over these seven days, the phytonutrients and antioxidants from the cherries will begin to build up in your body, so that you can start to feel the benefits. Here comes more ZZZ’s….
