But does the Sleepy Girl Mocktail really deliver?

Tart cherry juice contains melatonin, a natural sleep hormone. So when we consume melatonin, studies show it combines with the melatonin already in our body to help regulate sleep.

As for magnesium, it can supposedly help you sleep longer, get better quality sleep, and feel less tired.

Whether this is the magic elixir tired mums have been searching for, the verdict’s still a bit fuzzy. While some TikTok users swear it’s their new bedtime holy grail, others are a bit sceptical, pointing out the potential nighttime trips to the loo or suggesting cherry juice solo might do the trick.

So, should you join the Sleepy Girl Mocktail bandwagon? It’s all about personal preference and perhaps a bit of mum’s intuition. If you’re curious, why not give it a whirl? It could be the bedtime twist you’ve been longing for, or at the very least, a delightful way to end your day. Just remember, when it comes to viral trends, a sprinkle of scepticism and a dash of your own research never go amiss. Sweet dreams, mums!
