Food for Sleep - A science-based recipe of 100% good stuff #FoodForSleep

I have talked about my issues with not sleeping well many times. When I was approached by Food for Sleep to try out their product I was happy to say yes. What intrigued me was that this was not a drug with ingredients I really did not know much about. Instead Food for Sleep is made with tart cherry juice and whey protein.

While Food for Sleep, or any other supplement or pill for sleep, is not a long term solution, it can help us when we need it. The makers of Food for Sleep want us all to really look at our own sleep patterns and activities that might be contributing to our problems with sleeping. I am keeping a sleep diary right now to help me see my own patterns.

I have tried the samples I received from Food for Sleep twice now and so far what I have found…

  • It actually does help me fall asleep
    About 15-20 minutes after I drink it I get pretty relaxed and sleepy. This is unusual for me but it is a very good thing!
  • When they say tart, they mean it!
    The tart cherry juice is very tart. I actually talked with the CEO, Bob Jones, of Food for Sleep about the taste. My question was could they make it taste better, his answer was that they could but that would mean adding a bunch of sugar or flavorings and that they wanted to avoid that. I thought that was a great answer actually and I would rather deal with the taste for just a minute than have the extra sugars and flavorings.
  • I don’t feel “hungover” the next day
    When I use things like Benadryl to help sleep I always feel groggy the next day, kind of like a hangover. With Food for Sleep I did not have this at all, as a matter of fact I felt pretty bright and alert in the morning.

I am giving it a few more tries and I will share with you more about it then. You can see what others are saying on your social networks by searching for: #FoodForSleep

What do you think of the idea of just these two main ingredients of the tart cherry juice, to help you fall asleep, and the whey protein, to help you stay asleep? Do you have sleep issues? If so, what kind?

I have terrible insomnia. I take melatonin and/or Zzquil at night to help me fall asleep.
I have heard that tart cherry juice is effective but didn’t know about whey protein.
I hope you find some relief for your sleep troubles!

Hi Robyn,
Thanks for the review – nice job. You’re right that we could easily make a much
more conventional tasting drink, just by adding sugar. But in a world full of sugary drinks, that just doesn’t feel right to us. We’re trying to help people enjoy a healthy night’s sleep without adding a weight management burden. So we’re offering the unadulterated taste of tart cherries (in Boston, we’d say, “Wicked tart”) and whey protein. Maybe this is what a
good night’s sleep tastes like. :)

This sounds interesting. Oh yes I have sleep issues. On average I get between 4-6 hours of sleep most nights. Insomnia is one of my best friends. I think this would be worth a try if it helps. I have tried Zzquil and other sleep aids. I would rather deal with a tart taste for a few minutes then put a bunch of junk in my body, I can’t wait to hear more about your experience.
