  1. A tryptophan nap? Hardly. The medical literature shows that (1) almost no tryptophan from food is converted into serotonin or melatonin and that (2) even taking tryptophan as a supplement, getting much higher doses than from foods, doesn’t really work consistently well for insomnia or sleep problems (read the article “Tryptophan For Sleep: One Of The Good Natural Sleeping Aids?” by Rolf Hefti), it seems rather questionable whether this particular amino acid, all by itself, is the real predominant reason for having a huge positive impact on sleep induction or quality. It’s more likely because of a DIFFERENT nutrient found at high amounts in turkey (see cited website article above)!
