Where Relaxation & Recovery Truly Gel

Welcome sweet dreams with Tart Cherry Gel, a unique formulation created by Dr. Bill Rawls to bring together two top ingredients for addressing stress and occasional sleeplessness naturally: Montmorency tart cherry extract and magnesium glycinate.

The juice of ruby-red Montmorency cherries is a natural source of the sleep-initiating hormone melatonin, plus it supports post-exercise muscle recovery and healthy heart function. Add in magnesium glycinate – an easily-absorbed form of the calm- and sleep-promoting mineral – and you’ve got the makings for a night of both rest and recovery, all in one dreamy little package.

Tart Never Felt (and Tasted) So Sweet

The juice of Montmorency tart cherries in Tart Cherry Gel has been highlighted in multiple studies for its ability to help promote sleep, and specifically to support the increase of sleep time and efficiency. Which is great news, but one thing stood out to us: Study participants had to drink as much as 8 ounces of juice before bed — not ideal for anyone seeking uninterrupted sleep.

Fortunately, through our extraction process, we were able to condense the equivalent of 10 ounces of Montmorency tart cherry juice into each little packet of Tart Cherry Gel. We’d call reducing the need for emergency bathroom trips in the middle of the night a good first step toward better sleep.

But just what is it about Montmorency tart cherries that make them such a natural sleep ally? For one, this variety of cherries is known to have one of the highest levels of naturally-occurring melatonin found in fruits. This hormone helps initiate sleep, and it plays a key role in regulating our sleep-wake cycle.

That said, the melatonin levels in Montmorency cherries are actually significantly lower than those found in typical melatonin supplements — and that’s a good thing, especially when it comes to addressing occasional sleeplessness. Why?

Supplements with high amounts of melatonin have shown benefit for correcting significant sleep disruption like jet lag, but the long-term effects aren’t really known, and there’s concern it has the potential to disrupt quality sleep later in the night. A smaller, natural serving, however, more closely resembles the body’s natural production of melatonin for better sleep-wake cycle regulation.

Beyond sleep support, Montmorency tart cherries are also largely recognized for promoting cardiovascular and circulatory health. The credit goes to their phenolic acids, phytochemicals (plant chemicals) with impressive antioxidant actions.

Finally, the fruit has been shown in several studies to help promote muscle recovery after exercise. That makes them a handy tool for those seeking nighttime muscle and joint comfort.

There’s a 50% Chance You’re Missing This Essential Mineral

Magnesium is an essential mineral for our health, and one we have to get through diet or supplements (our bodies can’t produce enough on their own). We use it for more than 600 cellular reactions throughout the body, especially in the brain, heart, and skeletal muscles, and for regulating various neurotransmitters.

Given its ubiquitous role in wellness, it’s no surprise that falling short on magnesium intake — something that impacts more than half of American adults — is associated with occasional poor sleep quality. On the flip side, supplementing with magnesium has been shown to promote both more and better quality sleep. Here’s why.

Magnesium acts on the parasympathetic nervous system — nicknamed the “rest and digest system” — to promote calm and relaxation. This empowers you to have a healthy response to mental and physical stress, which in turn sets you up for a better night’s sleep.

The form of magnesium you take matters, which is why Dr. Rawls chose magnesium glycinate. It’s better absorbed by the body and doesn’t have the potential laxative effect of other forms of magnesium. Plus, glycine is an amino that promotes calm, offering you more support against stress.

No Mess, No Stress

To crib a line from William Shakespeare: Though our Tart Cherry Gel packets be but little, they have some fierce advantages over other supplement delivery methods and packaging.

For starters, our gel delivery system is super convenient. You’d have to take up to 6 capsules to get the same amount of tart cherry extract found in one packet’s worth of our gel, while a powder form would require preparing a beverage for mixing.

The packets themselves are handy, too. They travel well, so you can pack as many as you need in your toiletries kit, and leave the larger box at home. And the top tab tears off easily — just bend it a few times along the horizontal crease, then twist it off like you would a bottle cap.

With no pills, there’s no need for water to wash anything down, just enjoy the gel as is. It might be sweeter than you expect, and you may notice a few little magnesium crystals in some packets.

Perhaps best of all, the packaging is recyclable, so be sure to throw your packets in the recycling bin when you’re done.

"Easy to use, good taste, works quickly."
