Did you know that you can actually sleep yourself slim? Most people do not get enough sleep and this throws your body clock out and slows everything including your metabolism.

Getting an early night should be part of your long-term weight and health management plan. There’s a reason they call it beauty sleep! The Sleep Doctor, Michael Breus, has created a delicious pre-sleep smoothie that has some amazing upsides.

8 Benefits of Cherries

One of the key ingredients is Cherries and this infographic from Dr Axe shows some of the reasons you should be adding them to your diet. Point 8 in the chart states that Tart Cherry Juice contains high levels of melatonin which is critical in regulating your sleep cycle.

Melatonin is a hormone made by the Pineal Gland which is a small gland in the brain that helps control sleep and wake cycles.

What Dr. Breus says about his Smoothie

“Doze off and keep your metabolism burning through the night with this delicious smoothie courtesy of Dr. Michael Breus, Ph.D., the Sleep Doctor.

Cherries are one of the richest known sources of melatonin, the sleep hormone that recent studies have shown can also help reverse the effects of aging, while bananas contain loads of magnesium, a calming mineral. Lastly, soy milk is high in tryptophan, the sleep-inducing amino acid. Sweet dreams!”
