If you’ve been to the grocery store recently (no, WalMart doesn’t count), then you’ll notice that it is cherry season! Though you may know that cherries are now 1.99 per pound vs. an outrageous 3.99 per pound, you may not know that cherries are a natural source of melatonin; the hormone of darkness that is secreted near sleep onset that aids in falling asleep and consolidating sleep across the night. For athletes, cherries also contain many antioxidants that expedite recovery during intense training. CherryPharm has capitalized on this information, and are a major supplier of cherry-infused products for the professional teams in the NFL and MLB and collegiate teams of the NCAA.
Pop Those Cherries….and Fall Asleep!
