Podcast: Tryptophan and the Real Reason Your Uncle Falls Asleep Every Thanksgiving

Tryptophan 3

It happens in living rooms and family rooms across America on Thanksgiving.

Heck, it even happens right at the dining room table in some houses!

Family members falling asleep after downing a luscious turkey dinner with all the trimmings on Thanksgiving.

Football games go unwatched.

Heartwarming holiday movies go unseen. Snoring abounds.

Okay, I’m exaggerating a little.

But every year at this time, folks talk about the “tryptophan coma.”

Is it real? Is tryptophan really to blame?

Why does your uncle fall asleep every Thanksgiving?

I explore tryptophan – what it is and what it isn’t – and share the real reason you and your uncle fall asleep after the Thanksgiving feast!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my listeners.

And thank you to each of you – from the bottom of my heart!
