Why are we sleepy after meals

Special neurons in the brain produce the protein orexin, which is responsible for wakefulness during the day

From personal experience, each of us knows that he is often sleepy and tired after a hearty lunch. According to Professor Hademar Bankhofer, now British researchers have discovered why this is so. Neurons from the midbrain are to blame.

– Eating habits in 1,000 people were observed and the condition after eating was documented. The result showed that there are certain cells in the brain that are responsible for our alertness and activity. They are very often blocked after a large intake of food and that makes us sleepy and tired – explains prof. Bankhofer.

Special neurons in the brain produce the protein orexin, which is responsible for wakefulness during the day. The sugar we ingest in food gives the body glucose, and glucose interferes with neurons in orexin production. The consequence is that soon after eating there is a lack of orexin and this makes us tired and sleepy
