We’ve repeatedly told you that tart cherry juice is THE thing to drink to help you fall asleep faster. The juice is packed with melatonin and tryptophan, which work together to help us sleep better, naturally. But even if you don’t have trouble sleeping, here’s why you may want to pick some up anyway… it helps with joint pain from arthritis or gout. That’s because the cherries reduce levels of uric acid, which is linked to both of those conditions. Cherries are also full of anthocyanins. Those are powerful antioxidants that reduce inflammation. So try tart cherry juice if you have any issues with joint pain or inflammation – and you just might sleep better, too.
