You Will Never Eat Another Banana Knowing This

Not A Good Breakfast

If you feel sleepy after your morning banana, you are feeling the effects of tryptophan. This is responsible for the after-turkey dinner sleepies.

Tryptophan slows down mental processes and reaction time. Add in the muscle relaxation from all the magnesium in bananas and you have a prescription for a great nap.

Try a banana at bedtime instead of on your morning cereal.

Make sure to brush our teeth afterwards, though. Bananas can be hard on your teeth.
