It’s tart, but pleasant. Since one of the primary ingredients is tart cherry juice, it tastes like tart cherries. Many people tell us it reminds them of cherry cobbler.
Most people drink the entire 2 ½ ounces (about two swallows). Start there. After a few days, you may want to try a little more or a little less, so feel free to experiment.
A half-hour before you’d like to be asleep is usually best. Shut off your electronics, drink Food for Sleep and get ready for bed – maybe with a book or magazine (but not anything with a screen, please).

Factors in your personal life (job stress, pain, etc.) may make it harder to go to sleep, no matter what you do. But most people find that Food for Sleep helps, even on the first night.
