Because cherries are rich in melatonin, a phytochemical critical in regulating our sleep cycles, sipping water spiked with 4 oz. of cherry juice 30 minutes before bed enhances deep sleep, during which the body produces twice as much HGH (human growth hormone), a powerful fat-fighting hormone that plays a key role in the body’s ability to break down fat stores so they can be burned for fuel.
In addition to emptying out fat cells, HGH helps ensure that newly slim cells stay skinny by increasing muscle mass. The added muscle boosts metabolic rates so the body burns more calories 24/7, stopping lost pounds from creeping back on. That’s an effect women born before 1974 could potentially miss out on since the body’s output of HGH falls 14 percent per decade after age 30, causing us to lose 7 to 10 pounds of calorie-burning lean muscle mass every decade.
To counteract HGH declines, we recommend cherry juice for a more rested, slimmer you!
