Our Organic Tart Cherry Sleep Syrup is a relaxing blend of Tart Cherries and Herbs to help give you a restful night’s sleep!
We slowly cook Tart Cherries with a blend of Lemon Balm, Oatstraw and Chamomile into a delicious syrup. When cooled we add Raw Local Honey (We also have a Honey Free-Fully Tart Version).
Tart cherries are naturally rich in melatonin, a hormone responsible for sleepiness. Tart cherries also contain a good amount of tryptophan and anthocyanins, two compounds that may help the body create melatonin and lengthen its effects. Research shows that supplementing with tart cherry juice increases levels of melatonin and helps to improve sleep quality and duration. Tart cherries can also help with muscle soreness, arthritis, and gout. All of these things can prevent you from getting a good night’s rest.
Lemon Balm is known for its sedative qualities. Lemon Balm has been used for centuries to calm and relax the body to promote restful sleep. In one study, 20 subjects with mild-to-moderate anxiety and sleep disturbances were given Melissa officinalis extract for 15 days. Results showed improvement of symptoms, such as decreased anxiety, improved symptoms associated with anxiety, and decreased insomnia.
Oat Straw has been used historically as a remedy for nervous debility and exhaustion, where the nervous system needs 'feeding' or strengthening due to stress. Oat Straw is Indicated for insomnia were "waking in the small hours of the night after going off to sleep easily" is the problem.
Chamomile is celebrated for its sleep-inducing benefits. Flavonoids in the plant bind to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, acting as a mild tranquilizer. Chamomile is a wonderful herb to help anxious feelings and can help you relax and ease a racing mind.
