Relaxing Cherry & Lavender Mocktail (Ve)
We know sleep is vital to our mental health. Consistently having less than 7 hours of sleep a night can lead to health conditions including high blood pressure, anxiety, diabetes and many more. In our latest sleep research, we found that a shocking 73% of people have trouble sleeping at least 3 nights a week. Whether we're conscious of it or not, stress is one of the most common root causes of poor sleep.
Choosing the right foods to eat before bed, like tart cherry juice, can have an impact on your sleep quality. Studies have shown that consuming tart cherry juice can help reduce insomnia and improve sleep quality. For a peaceful night's sleep, wind down for the day with this relaxing cherry and lavender mocktail — ideal after a busy day!
