6 Benefits of Eating Cherries

2. Cherries Help You Sleep

Is there anything more frustrating than a lousy night’s sleep? If you’re tossing and turning each night, try drinking cherry juice before dinner. In a recent study, people who did this saw visible boosts in their levels of melatonin, the natural chemical that helps regulate sleep.

For this reason, it’s a good idea to eat cherries while dealing with a tough bout of jet lag. The key is to get your hands on some tart cherry juice, which is more effective at increasing melatonin than sweet cherry juice.
