Maybe cherry juice can improve sleep after all

In 2010 I wrote about a study that found cherry juice could reduce the severity of insomnia.

I was skeptical at the time since the study only involved 15 individuals and it was funded by a cherry juice manufacturer.

However, further studies are taking place that appear to backup this earlier research.

A recent study found that older adults aged between 59-77 who drank 8oz of tart cherry juice twice per day over the course of 2 treatment periods (2 weeks drinking the juice, 2 weeks not drinking the juice) saw sleep time increase by approximately 85 minutes.

It was previously thought that the melatonin content of cherries was the reason behind their sleep-inducing properties - however researchers now suspect that the juice decreases levels of indoleamine 2,3 dioxygenase and PGE2.

This was still a tiny study (it only involved 7 participants) but a larger clinical trial is underway and still recruiting participants if you want to get involved.
