    because there are high levels of a chemical called tryptophan in it(naturally)-and it makes you feel tired. and also-eating a lot of food plus the turkey will make you feel EXTRA sleepy anyway. ive got the same thing ya. hope that helped.

    there is a chemical in turkey that makes a part of your brain tired.

    but the truth is that there isnt nearly enough of this chemical in turkey to make you tired, its a myth that you get tired after eating turkey.
