Turkey (tryptophan) and crazy and/or pain meds

Recommended Posts

The "tryptophan ocean" is a myth.

Tryptophan, an amino acid, is found in similar quantities in other meats and foods.  Steak, chicken, a few servings of cheddar cheese or beans, etc. are just like eating a serving of turkey.

The post-Thanksgiving sleepiness is likely due to overeating and consuming a lot of carbs.

Hope that helps.
