A lot of TV and Radio stations are picking up on the fact that we are a pill popping nation and the negative effects on our health is becoming a huge problem.

We believe that popping a pill will solve the problem but all it does is put a plaster on it, it does not get to the bottom of the issue.

A client asked me the other day about supplements to help her get a good night sleep (now there are plenty out there) but I took it upon myself to do some research and find some natural alternatives.

One of the best sources I found was the good old Cherry, it is one of the very few foods that contain Melatonin which is a hormone that governs our sleep-wake cycle.

Studies have shown that drinking a glass of tart cherry juice before bed can help you sleep soundly and it’s also a fantastic anti-inflammatory and can reduce the dreaded D.O.M.S (the pain you get after exercise).

The most medicinal cherry is the ‘Montmorency’ which studies have shown is 10 times more active at relieving pain than aspirin. So next time you’re feeling a little under the weather or have a headache, try doing a little research to see how nature can help.
