The Recipe for Restful Nights:

 

  • Passionflower: passionflower contains flavonoids like vitexin and isovitexin, which modulate neurotransmitter activity, promoting relaxation and improving sleep quality.
  • Tart Cherry: tart cherry, scientifically known as Prunus cerasus, harbours anthocyanins and flavonoids such as quercetin and kaempferol, which exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, contributing to overall health and well-being.

In this crumble, the synergy between passionflower and tart cherry enhances sleep-inducing effects through GABAergic modulation and melatonin content, providing a natural remedy for relaxation and improved sleep.

While this crumble provides a delightful and healthful addition to your diet, promoting relaxation and potentially aiding in sleep quality, you may still find value in incorporating dedicated sleep supplements into your regimen.
