Tart cherry juice is the star of the recipe. Here are 5 skin + health benefits of including this ingredient in your next bedtime elixir. 🍒
Improved Sleep Quality: Tart cherries are a natural source of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycles. Improved sleep quality contributes to healthier skin, lower stress levels, and overall improved well-being.
Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Tart cherry juice contains anthocyanins and other antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory effects. This can help reduce inflammation in the body, including skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, or eczema.
Joint Health: The anti-inflammatory compounds in tart cherry juice can help to reduce symptoms of arthritis and gout. Improved joint health can lead to better mobility and overall comfort.
Heart Health: Consuming tart cherry juice has been associated with improved cardiovascular health. This can promote better blood circulation, leading to healthier skin by providing more oxygen and nutrients to skin cells.
Skin Protection: The antioxidants in tart cherry juice, particularly anthocyanins and quercetin, can help protect the skin from oxidative stress and free radical damage. This can reduce the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
