Cherry juice is the number one dietary source of melatonin—the natural hormone that’s been shown to reduce the amount of time needed to fall asleep and to ward off sleep disturbances and nighttime awakenings by more than 90 percent. That’s a boon for slimming since sounder sleep reduces the output of appetite-revving hormones by 15 percent and slashes levels of the stress hormone cortisol by 45 percent. These effects helped dieters in one study lose 138 percent more fat when they were well-rested than when they were sleep-deprived. To get the benefits of melatonin in a delicious sip, enjoy 4 oz. of cherry juice (like Knudsen Organic) 30 minutes before bed.
