How’s your sleep? Sleep is as important to the human body as food and water, but most of us don’t get enough quality sleep. Insufficient sleep, or disruptions to the sleep-wake cycle, may cause you to feel stressed, moody, unhappy, depressed, frustrated, fatigued, as well as cause poor concentration, memory, weight gain, skin conditions and even be a factor in faster aging and degenerative diseases. Melatonin is your sleep hormone. It is secreted by your brain’s pineal gland at the day’s end to help you relax and prepare for sleep. As you drift into sleep more melatonin is released to put you into a deep restorative sleep. Unfortunately many of us do not produce enough melatonin to achieve a quality sleep, and to sleep continuously through until morning. If you have trouble going to sleep, and/or wake often throughout the night you could be low in melatonin. Montmorency Tart Cherries are an excellent source of naturally occurring phyto-melatonin. Tru2U Sleep Support contains 100% pure tart cherry concentrate. It is an excellent natural way to increase your melatonin levels and improve your sleep. It is ideal for the whole family Melatonin is only produced at significant levels by the pineal gland when it is dark. It is imperative to sleep in a dark room with no lights for your body’s natural production of melatonin. Research conducted at Michigan State University found Montmorency Tart Cherries to contain some of the highest concentrations known of antioxidants including potent anthocyanins. These

potent antioxidants help keep the body healthy. According to Dr. Lester Packer, PhD, world renowned cell biologist, “There is overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrating that people who eat a diet rich in antioxidants will live longer, healthier lives.” Tart cherry juice has been found to support joint health, mobility, flexibility and muscle recovery. It contains an enzyme called “uricase” that helps break down uric acid in the joints, which can lead to joint pain and gout. Montmorency tart cherry juice has also been shown to significantly reduce high blood pressure at levels comparable to that achieved by medication but without the side effects of medication according to new research from Northumbria University, Newcastle. Participants with the highest blood pressure saw the most benefit. Tru2U Sleep Support is 100% pure tart cherry concentrate. It is a great product to support healthy sleep and general good health.
