TikTok has been buzzing with a new 'sleepy girl mocktail' that's making waves among people looking for a better night's sleep.
We’ve all tried the many ways to get a better night's sleep, from swapping the phone for a book because of the ‘blue light’ to avoiding caffeine after lunch (which is basically impossible), but this new ‘mocktail’ could be the answer…
The drink is pretty simple with just three ingredients – pure tart cherry juice, magnesium powder, and soda. According to wellness influencer Gracie Norton, the drink helped her achieve 'the best night’s sleep ever'.
"A 2010 study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that consuming tart cherry juice increased melatonin levels and improved sleep quality in adults with insomnia.”
Studies have also shown that magnesium can improve sleep quality and duration by as it regulates the production of melatonin, the hormone responsible for controlling the sleep-wake cycle.
Although the drink has got positive feedback from some, others are sceptical about the… after effects: "I’d get the s**ts," one user commented.
Despite the mixed reactions, scientific evidence supports the benefits of tart cherry juice in promoting sleepiness and improving sleep quality.
So for those looking for a natural way to promote sleepiness and improve sleep quality, the 'sleepy girl mocktail' might just be the answer we’ve been looking for!
