The BIGGEST myth about your Thanksgiving turkey!
Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!
I hope you enjoy a delicious feast surrounded by those you care about most, and savor the company as much as the meal.
Some families laugh. Some argue. Some watch the game...
But before the day is out, one person is almost guaranteed to yawn with great satisfaction and announce the turkey’s TRYPTOPHAN must be kicking in.
Well, here’s a little trivia you can whip out in response – along with a far SIMPLER way to get some EASY SLEEP ANY time of year.
There are plenty of reasons people can feel sleepy late in the day on Thanksgiving.
Maybe it’s waking up early to cook, or eating lots of delicious food. Maybe it’s the wine, or sugar “crash” from that extra slice of pie.
But what it’s NOT is the tryptophan!
While turkey does contain a little tryptophan, it’s really not much… and certainly not even close to the levels you need to feel any effects.
And that’s a shame.
Boosting tryptophan is actually a terrific way to boost your mood, ease anxiety and feel nice and relaxed… and it’s also terrific for helping you to sleep.
But only in the right levels.
While a turkey dinner won’t do the trick, there are two great ways you can get its all-natural, sleep inducing effect:
Go right to the source. You can find tryptophan supplements in stores, and 1,000 mg before bed can help knock you right out.
Taken in smaller doses three times a day, it can also help fight depression.
Tryptophan supplements work because they help form 5-HTP, which can in turn be transformed into the neurotransmitter serotonin.
And that brings me to the second way of getting the benefits of tryptophan...
Skip the middleman. Go right to the 5-HTP. It’s cheaper, easier to find and works faster.
Just 100 mg three times a day can chase away the anxiety, stress and depression so many people feel, especially here during the holiday season.
And if you can’t sleep, taking 100-200 mg before bed on an empty stomach will put you into such a deep slumber that Santa and all the reindeer could come through and you wouldn’t know it.
