Sleep better with the
Sleepy Girl Longevity Mocktail

We tell you why you should definitely try it

For a while now, this non-alcoholic mocktail that’s supposed to help you sleep better has been spreading through the world of social media. And since we love sleep, of course, we had to take a closer look at it and see what the Sleepy Girl Mocktail can do.

The Sleepy Girl Mocktail is designed to help you sleep better and relax into the world of dreams. We took a close look at it and the ingredients speak for themselves. Magnesium, sour cherry juice, and a splash of soda, so simple, but so effective. We tweaked the recipe a bit to create a Sleepy Girl Longevity Mocktail.

We’ll show you how to prepare it, what to look for, and why it’s worth making it part of your evening ritual.

What actually makes the Sleepy Girl Longevity?

The original recipe consists of sour cherry juice, magnesium powder, and sparkling water.
Cherries, especially sour cherries are rich in nutrients and antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory effects.

But there are two very special things, if we talk about sleeping. First, they are a natural source of the sleep hormone melatonin, which can turn our zombie cells back into healthy cells and help us sleep in a relaxed manner. The second point is that they are rich in the amino acid tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps us relax.

Magnesium also serves a more relaxed sleep. However, you should pay close attention to what kind of magnesium you take, because there are different types. Magnesium glycinate is particularly suitable, and the one you’d better not use in this case is magnesium oxide, because it’s known as a “stool softener”.

Can the Sleepy Girl Longevity Mocktail help you fall asleep and what to look for!

Yes, the ingredients Sleepy Girl Longevity Mocktail can help you fall asleep, but there are a few things you should keep in mind.

As with many natural nutrients, it all depends on the ingredients and the amount. You won’t drift right off to sleep from a few sips of sour cherry juice, and the wrong magnesium is more likely to cause you a restless sleep than a restful one. In addition, the juice should also not contain any extra sugar, because it makes your blood sugar level rise and has the exact opposite effect.

What you should also keep in mind is that in order to to sleep better, your bladder should not be too full, otherwise it will make you stagger to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

The classic Sleepy Girl Mocktail consists of 200ml of sour cherry juice, 1 tsp of magnesium and is mixed with Olipop infused. Olipop is a wave soda that contains prebiotic fiber. With us you will Olipop unfortunately, but alternatively you can refer to this Vegan Protein Sparkling Water fall back. Proteins also help the body to regenerate, just like when you are asleep.

However, there are a few points that can be adjusted on the Sleepy Girl Mocktail to make it work to its full potential.

Our better version of the
Sleepy Girl Longevity Mocktail

The basic idea of the Sleepy Girl Mocktail is definitely right. But so that it can really unfold its full effect, we have adjusted the subtleties. As mentioned above, not all magnesium is suitable. Magnesium glycinate is the best choice here.

The part that plays the most important role in magnesium glycinate is glycine which has a direct influence on our central nervous system. Magnesium glycinate contains only a small amount of it, so it makes more sense to go directly to glycine in powder form.

When it comes to cherry juice, it is important to use mother juice directly, as it is the most concentrated and does not contain additional sugar, which is not only unhealthy, but also not exactly conducive to sleep.

To get that wonderful bubbly effect, you can mix the Sleepy Girl Longevity Mocktail with this Vegan Protein Sparkling Water infuse. Proteins also support the regeneration processes of your body during sleep.

And our last add-on to sleep even better are 2-3 drops of lavender.
Lavender has a strong calming effect and relaxes your whole nervous system.
