A CHERRY WAY TO HELP YOU SLEEP
Studies show that tart cherries contain a considerable amount of the phytonutrient melatonin, a useful and natural hormone for maintaining sleep. If you have trouble getting to sleep, or staying there, consider consuming an 8 ounce glass of unsweetened cherry juice or a bowl of fresh cherries before bed to increase melatonin levels and improve sleep quality naturally.
YOU CAN REALLY DIE FROM A BROKEN HEART
Studies show that deep emotional trauma, like the death of a loved one, really can break your heart. The chance of having a heart attack the day after the death of a significant other increases by 21%, and remains increased above 6% for the next week, probably due to stress hormones and their effect on the heart. When emotional trauma strikes, take extra care with yourself and rest, find emotional support, eat well, find an emotional release, and be aware that your heart really is vulnerable after emotional trauma.
