No Thanksgiving is complete without a turkey at the table — and a nap right after it’s eaten, right?
Most people blame the turkey because it makes people sleepy, but is there really science to back that up? Nope. Turkey does have L-tryptophan, an amino acid that promotes sleep, but it has the same amount as other meats.
Turkey actually has enough protein per serving to perk you up. So, if one of your clan tries to blame the turkey for their tiredness, don’t believe em.
The heavy load of carbs that made up the rest of the meal is what makes you want to doze off after your Thanksgiving feast.
