Foods To Eat To Enhance Your Dreams

Are you wasting one third of your life by not living it to its fullest? What is the ideal diet to fuel lucid dreaming, vivid and intense dreams, and increased recall after waking up? World of Lucid Dreaming has the answers:

A double-blind study revealed that participants who took a daily 250mg B6 supplement reported a significant increase in dream content – as measured in dream vividness, bizarreness, emotionality and color. One of the roles of vitamin B6 is to convert the essential amino acid tryptophan into serotonin and niacin. This helps the body regulate appetite, sleep patterns and mood. Low levels of tryptophan are also linked with poor dream recall.

When you’re ready to begin the dream-intensity challenge, take your vitamin B6 supplement and then fuel the fire with plenty of tryptophan-rich foods such as:

Chicken (4 oz) gives 0.41g tryptophan
Soybeans (1 cup) gives 0.39g tryptophan
Turkey (4 oz) gives 0.38g tryptophan
Tuna (4 oz) gives 0.38g tryptophan
Venison (4 oz) gives 0.36g tryptophan
Lamb (4 oz) gives 0.35g tryptophan
Salmon (4 oz) gives 0.35g tryptophan
Halibut (4 oz) gives 0.34g tryptophan
Shrimp (4 oz) gives 0.33g tryptophan
Cod (4 oz) gives 0.29g tryptophan

I realize that list is a little meat-heavy, and if you’re a vegetarian it doesn’t give many options. So here are five more veggie-friendly foods:

Kidney Beans (1 cup) gives 0.18g tryptophan
Pumpkin Seeds (0.25 cup) gives 0.17g tryptophan
Tofu (4 oz) gives 0.14g tryptophan
Cheese (1 oz) gives 0.09g tryptophan
Soy Sauce (1 tbsp) gives 0.03g tryptophan

    And if lucid dreaming is your aim, shove 8mg of Galantamine down your gullet in the middle of the night. It’s practically a guarantee of Wake Into Lucid Dreams (WILD), hypnogogia, or even alien abductions, if you’re into that sort of thing.

    While vitamin B6 has a modulating action on the tryptophan pathways, such as preventing the amino acid’s conversion into some of the tryptophan metabolites, the research data doesn’t support the notion to generally increase tryptophan because of its many troublesome side effects, this MAY include the consumption of tryptophan rich foods  (see http://www.supplements-and-health.com/tryptophan-side-effects.html).
