“Sleep Booster” from the cocktail glass
No wonder you’re reading about new miracle cures for good sleep everywhere. For anyone who has desperately tried everything from whale sounds to breathing techniques to weighted blankets with no success, this “sleep booster” might just come in handy.
Health influencers have discovered a new drink they call “Sleepy Girl Mocktail” and that the The solution to problems falling asleep. At the forefront of making the Sleepy Girl Mocktail the new IT drink is wellness influencer Gracie Norton, who says in a video she had “the best sleep of her life” after her first Sleepy Girl Mocktail. .
The video in which Gracie Norton presents the new sleeping miracle drink has now had over two million views and numerous imitators.
And this is how you can imitate the cocktail:
As shown in the video, the fall asleep drink consists of only three ingredients:
- sour cherry concentrate
- magnesium powder
- and some “olipop” soda (plain sparkling water or lemon soda will do, too).
But does the viral mocktail really work? We asked an expert:
- sour cherry juice: Nutritionist David Wiener explains, “Tart cherry juice contains the amino acid tryptophan, which after consumption can be converted into melatonin and serotonin, both essential neurotransmitters that help reduce stress levels and promote relaxation.”
- Magnesium: “Magnesium is another helpful supplement for better sleep as it supports our internal sleep-wake cycle by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps us relax. In addition, magnesium supplements can help stabilize blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and muscle and nerve function, all of which leads to better sleep patterns,” explains David Wiener. However, when using magnesium to promote sleep, it is important to consider what type of magnesium supplement you are taking. The nutritionist advises avoiding magnesium oxide and opting for magnesium citrate or carbonate instead.
- Lemonade: “As for the lemonade, it doesn’t have much of an effect on sleep, but it does give the drink a more pleasant taste.” It is only important to choose a lemonade with little sugar, as an increased blood sugar level can nullify the effect of the cherry juice and magnesium.
