The effect of cherry juice could be due to the fruit’s high content of melatonin, a hormone that regulates the body’s sleep-wake cycle, Wilfred Pigeon, a psychiatrist
who led the study from the University of Rochester in New York. The researchers analysed sleeping patterns of participants on two routines. During the first, they drank cherry juice, & in the second another fruit juice. The cherry juice led to an average of 17 minutes more sleep.

“Given the side-effects of some medications, it is encouraging to 've a natural alternative,” said Pigeon, whose findings are published in the Journal of Medicinal Food.
