Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and turkey will be the star attraction on many Thanksgiving tables. There’s an age-old story that turkey makes you sleepy, but is there any truth to this old wives’ tale? 

The answer is yes and no. Turkey contains tryptophan, which is an amino acid that helps to produce serotonin, which promotes good moods, and melatonin, which promotes good sleep. However, the amount of tryptophan in an average serving of turkey is not high enough to have much of an effect on you. You’d have to eat A LOT of turkey to get enough tryptophan to actually make you feel tired.

So, why are people always so tired after a big Thanksgiving meal? The answer lies in the large amount of food that people typically consume during such meals. Along with the sheer volume, many traditional Thanksgiving dishes are high in carbs. This extra surge of carbs will raise your blood sugar which will shortly lead to a crash and subsequent exhaustion, hence the tiredness after a Thanksgiving meal.
