Myth: Eating turkey makes you sleepy

There's reportedly good Thanksgiving news for turkey lovers: Contrary to popular belief, tryptophan in turkey doesn't cause drowsiness.

i'm glad they have dispelled that myth..

In fact, scientists told National Geographic News the substance could possibly aid in the treatment of depression and multiple sclerosis.

i have never doubted the power of turkey..

And, scientists told NGN (national geographic news), turkey isn't even unusually high in tryptophan. Many other foods, such as beef or soybeans, have higher concentrations.

another two of my favorites.
