These fruits can also help you with sleep during the busy holiday season. One study showed that drinking tart cherry juice concentrate helps improve sleep duration and quality. They have also been shown to help reduce pain in arthritis and consuming 12 to 24 cherries per day has been shown to reduce gout by 50 percent.
