Want To Fall Asleep Instantly? Drink THIS, Says Science


And nope, it's not a warm glass of milk.

Many people have different solutions on how to combat insomnia. Some of them involve drugging themselves with Nyquil and other over-the-counter products, but if you're into a more natural sleep-aid, listen up. 

An older home remedy would be drinking a glass of warm milk, but it looks like researchers found something else you should drink if you want to get night's sleep. (And luckily, this solution is safer for lactose-intolerant people.)

A study from Louisiana State University with funding from Cherry Marketing Institute claims drinking cherry juice will knock you right out.

To be specific, LSU recommends two glasses of cherry juice to do the trick. The cause of this is because sour cherries have a hormone called Melatonin and an amino acid called Tryptophan that makes you tired.

Cherries aren't only good for sleep, though. Research has found that tart cherries can help fight obesity, another study found that they also can help reduce muscle pain, and it's been found that they can reduce risk of stroke, too. Looks like tart cherry juice is just good for your overall health. Off to the grocery!
