Thanksgiving Day is this Thursday in the United States and just like every year, we can’t wait for the traditional meal and the gathering of family and friends.
Turkey, cranberry sauce, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, sweet corn and squash are traditionally served at Thanksgiving meals. Pie is the usual dessert. Pumpkin, sweet potato, pecan and apple are generally the options and everyone has their favorite pie.
Unfortunately, indigestion is often associated with the celebration of Thanksgiving. Why do we eat too much? Why do we fall asleep?
The traditional Thanksgiving meal has plenty of foods with high amounts of carbohydrates, which is likely the reason we feel stuffed.
In addition, turkey meat contains high levels of tryptophan, which may cause drowsiness. But don’t blame it all on turkey. High amounts of fats and alcohol are likely the reason for post-meal sleepiness. In fact, the white meat of turkey is generally considered healthier than dark meat because of its lower fat content.
Natural digestive enzymes may relief symptoms of indigestion such as gas and bloating. Plant-based enzymes have been used for many years to soothe the gastrointestinal tract and promote optimal digestion. Most formulas contain a special enzyme complex including lipases, amylases, proteases and cellulases, which provide powerful digestion of protein, fat, carbohydrates, milk lactose and vegetable cellulose.
Digestive enzymes with probiotics may promote even quicker relief. Don’t eat too much this year, but if you do, try digestive enzymes for naturally relief.
