Hey! I have been reading more into lucid dreaming and have been taking the first steps of keeping a dream journal, practicing dream recall, and reality checks. SO, I want to know for those of you fellow lucid dreamers, or interested lucid dreamers, has anyone tried the dream supplument Dream Leaf? It has 5-HTP, Mugwort, Huperzine – A, Alpha GPC, and Choline Bitartrate. It’s on Amazon for a good $35, but am hesitant to purchase it. Has anyone had experience with it? Should I just learn to lucid dream without other aids? Also, I want to know if anyone has had experience taking Melatonin and dreaming. Or, if you’ve taken anyother drugs that created vivid or strange dreams for you?
5-HTP definitely has an effect on my dreaming. It makes them more intense and I seem to remember them better.
Also I tried the combination of Melatonin, vitamin B6, and valerian root one time and it seemed to make me have very crazy dreams (more of the nightmare variety though so beware). And there’s this tea called tilleul (from the linden tree) that produces vivid dreams (for me at least).
If you have been reading into lucid dreaming you probably already know about how much dream journaling helps, and also the method of waking up for a while and then going back to sleep.
