Cherry juice, blackout shades may help insomnia
Aug 18 2010
Researchers across the country have been studying sleep patterns for years, but the Neurology Channel claims that approximately 40 million people in the United States experience chronic sleep disorders, and another 20 million have occasional problems falling asleep.
Cherry juice, blackout shade may help insomnia
A new study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania, University of Rochester and VA Center of Canadaigua has recently found that drinking tart cherry juice might have a significant impact on those affected by sleeping problems, according to the Times of India.
The experiment was conducted with 15 participants who drank eight ounces of cherry juice in the morning and evening for two weeks. For another two weeks, they drank a different kind of juice. Researchers found that there was a noticeable difference in the severity of insomnia when the group drank cherry juice.
Experts claim that this may be because cherries have melatonin, which has a long history of being able of regulating sleep cycles. It is the natural chemical that many sleep supplements use.
A dark, calm room can also be fundamental to sleep quality. Blackout shades are a window treatment that can effectively block street and car lights that would otherwise shine into the window and possibly disrupt sleeping patterns. They are available in many different styles, so they can be both helpful and beautiful additions to any room.
