Do you feel sore after a work out? Would you like to lessen the effects of Jet Lag? If you said yes to any of these questions, then you will be interested in how you can make your sleep life a bowl of cherries.

Yes, the answer might be in a bowl of cherries.

Melatonin is a hormone that is secreted from the pineal gland in the brain. The concentration of this hormone in our blood varies throughout the day. The levels are undoubtedly connected to the biorhythms our body cycles through each day.

It peaks when it is time to sleep. If we have a normal sleep pattern of sleeping at night, it will naturally peak at night.

With age, melatonin levels decrease. This explains why the elderly will often have difficulty getting sleep at night.

Note...This is not new. In fact, this has been a problem for the elderly for a few thousand years. The Bible Book of Ecclesiastes the 12th chapter poetically describes the ageing process. There you will read of how we lose our hearing yet will wake at the sound of a sparrow. Getting a good nights sleep was and still is a problem for the elderly and others.

Can't Sleep Reasons

There are numerous things that can kill a good night sleep.

Stress can prevent us from getting sleep. When we are going to give an important speech, stress can cause us to lay awake. The very thing we need in order to be at our best the next day presentation is the one thing that eludes us.

Shift work or on call staff often have a challenge to go to sleep and get good sleep.

Some stimulants if taken close to sleep times can interfere with sleep.

One statistic indicates that more than 90% of North Americans have had difficulty getting a good night’s sleep at some point in their lives. So if you have not yet had a problem, you possibly will. Undoubtedly you know someone who does have a sleep problem.

Why Not Just Take Melatonin?

There are a number of products on the market that claim to boost your melatonin. The challenge is that the body often compensates and after a while supplements become ineffective.

So then, how can we boost melatonin with out losing the benefit after a short time?

This is where the ultimate melatonin sleep aid could possibly be a solution for you. Consider why it could be better than just a supplement.

When supplements are created they often only have the particular vitamin, mineral or ingredient that has a potential to benefit our health.

However, when we consume those same vitamins and minerals in the form of food, there are numerous phytochemicals that may work in harmony with each other to potentate the effect or benefit. This is where the ultimate melatonin sleep aid stands apart from other products.

Note...Consider the story of a patient who was not responding to blood building medicine Procrit. This demonstrates how in some cases foods can produce results supplements can not. Procrit therapy requires additional iron to be given in most cases.

The body needs iron as part of normal functioning and especially to build blood. Oral iron is one of the top reasons for child poisoning and yet as adults we poorly absorb it from supplements. It also has a side effect of causing constipation.

One patient who was not responding to Procrit therapy was put on peanut butter and black strap molasses three times a day. Peanut butter for protein and molasses for Iron.

Within 24 hours her blood count started climbing from a Hgb of 5.2 by a factor of 0.3 a day each day till it leveled out at 8.0 which was considered safe for her (12-14 would have been normal).

Not only was the iron more absorbable but there was an added benefit. The molasses had a secondary benefit of being a stool softener.

Consider another example of the benefit of food over supplements...

What happens if you eat too much selenium, carotene, vitamin A, D, E, K? Take too many of these supplements and you could get sick or a type of poisoning. Eat too many Brazil nuts and you most likely will not. Carrots will only make you orange (which is a way to enhance your tan and minimize sun exposure danger). The foods having A, D, E and K likewise will not make you sick unless it is from purely overeating which is unlikely.

The ABCs of What is in a Cherry

Cherries have bioactive chemicals called anthocyanins. Why is this important? Studies have shown that anthocyanins are extremely effective at inhibiting the Cox enzyme.

Note...you might remember an over the counter drug that was removed from the market because of problems. It was a Cox 2 enzyme inhibitor.

The Cox enzyme speeds up the process of the body making prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances that cause a feeling of discomfort as a result of irritating nerve endings.

Why will this melatonin sleep aid work when that drug will not with out side effects?

Quite simply, it is because of the balance and combination of chemicals in the juice. Foods are generally always safe when supplements have the potential to be dangerous as noted above.

So if you are feeling sore, get the ultimate melatonin sleep aid. What kind of cherry and in what form has the greatest potential benefit?

Montmorency Cherry Concentrate, The Ultimate Melatonin Sleep Aid

Montmorency cherries have the highest levels of melatonin and Cherry concentrate is the best way to get it. This is the ultimate melatonin sleep aid.

This is only the beginning of the benefits of Cherries. Additionally they are loaded with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B6, thiamine, phosphorous, iron, calcium, and potassium.

And the Cherry juice has been great too. I rarely have a problem getting to sleep. My problem is getting back to sleep when I awake. Well, since taking cherry concentrate melatonin sleep aid, that is a problem no more.

I went further and did some experimentation with the melatonin sleep aid. Any day I do a bit harder work out, I drink the cherry juice mixed with the water I drink. The result, no more aches and pain. I have been using it for about a month and it still works great. So it is not only a sleep aid, it helps with pain relief.
