Tart Cherry Sleepy Gummies

Tart cherry juice is a natural source of melatonin making it a wonderful sleep remedy. Melatonin and cortisol are important hormones that support your circadian rhythm and sleep wake cycles. If you are someone who struggles with falling asleep or waking up overnight, you might benefit from a little melatonin support. Tart cherries are also a polyphenol source meaning they feed the beneficial microbes in your gut microbiome as well as helping to lower inflammation.
