A recent study conducted by Louisiana State University found that people suffering from insomnia were able to have, on average, an extra 83 minutes sleep a night, by drinking cherry juice before bed.

Fresh & Delicious Cherries

Scientists believe the reason for this is because the fruit contains a substance called tryptophan, which turns into melatonin – a hormone responsible for feeling drowsy. Cherry juice – here we come!

We wonder if our delicious No-Bake Raw Cherry Slices would also do the trick?!

Another fruit that has been found to reduce sleep-induced issues are kiwis.

The Advances in Nutrition study found that eating two kiwis before bedtime will help you have a better night’s sleep.
