HAV­ING TROU­BLE WITH IN­SOM­NIA? TRY CHERRIES

Weekly Trust - - Weekend Health -

Eat a hand­ful of cherries (if you can find them) be­fore bedtime (or drink tart cherry juice). Sci­en­tists have dis­cov­ered cherries are jam-packed with mela­tonin, the same hor­mone cre­ated by your body to reg­u­late sleep pat­terns. Then take or steep your­self in a hot bath to re­lax your mus­cles and your mind. In bed, rest your head on a scented pil­low—the fra­grance in­duces sleepi­ness. And cherries can help pre­vent gout at­tacks, say ex­perts Mark Moyad, and Ja­cob Teit­el­baum.
