Trouble falling asleep?
I've been having troubles getting to sleep at night & I don't take sleeping medication as a personal choice so, as a registered dietitian I used my knowledge of the nutritional impact on our sleep cycle to come up with this all natural "sleep elixir". It is a GAME CHANGER
Here's why it works: The quercetin found in tart cherry juice has been known to reduce inflammation, muscle damage, oxidative stress after strenuous exercise, and contains a natural high amount of dietary melatonin. Some research shows that the polyphenols in tart cherries also improve sleep. Magnesium relaxes your muscles and has a calming effect that can sometimes help reduce anxiety, depression, etc & almonds are one of the best sources of magnesium (hence the almond milk). Warm milk is soothing but also contains tryptophan, calcium, vitamin D, and melatonin which all play a role in your sleep cycle.
Next time you are struggling to fall asleep, make this 2 ingredient sleep elixir!
