I've found strawberries and bananas to be the most effective fruits.

Now it's the fruits? I remember before drinking milk was said to increase recall and vividness (worked for me) haha I'll test out the apple now.

After reading this post last night, I drank about one glass of apple juice before I went to bed. That's it.

I ended up having an extremely long dream. For the most part it was really vivid. I'm going to experiment with this for a few more nights:) I'll probably drink more tonight, like 2 or 3 glasses.

I'm not sure if it's sweetened or unsweetened though. The label doesn't really say.

Yeah! I do chocolate milk because chocolate's supposed to be good for dreams, too.

Sounds really interesting, I'm hoping this can work a miracle and bring me my first LD! I wasn't able to get my hands on any apple juice today, but I'm giving cranberry juice a shot for tonight. I'll let you guys know how it goes!

Okay, well I tried cranberry juice last night, and remembered 3 dreams. For the past week or so, I've only remembered one. Maybe it's just placebo, or a coincidence. I didn't get that first LD D: I'm going to try AJ tonight!

Due to all the claims on here, last night, before bed, I had: Chocolate milk, an apple, and a banana. I can clearly remember three dreams, and parts of one other. All four dreams were rather vivid, and all were fun. It seems to work quite well, I usually remember one normal dream, and parts of two or three.


Current LD goal(s): Visit that ball of plasma in the sky. Yup, the Sun.

Well, I bought a jug of apple juice and tested it out. 1 glass of apple juice did not really do anything for my dream, I tried 2 glasses the next day, and it kind of influenced my dreams I guess, I didn't really see a big difference though. So I guess this doesn't work with everybody , I'm sticking with milk.

Regarding bananas, I seem to remember that for having the amount of B6 vitamin enough to hope the side effect which occurs on certain people and give them sometimes vivid dreams, which is supposed to help having LD's, you should eat 13.6 kg of bananas* before going to sleep. lach2

Thus, about apples, how many gallons of juice are needed here to drink each night?

(* : B6 amount recommended in the hope of vivid dreams side effect = 50 mg; B6 found in 0.1 kg of banana = 0.367 mg)

Bit of a bump, but I had 1 and a half cups of apple juice and I got two normal vivid dreams and a lucid, still vivid.

I'm going to try again tonight and see what happens...

Ok, I've done some researches.

First, the active substance in the apple is the acetylcholine, a neuro-transmitter. For the acetylcholine to be active, you need B5 vitamin, Dimethylaminoethanol, acetyl-L carnitine, Methionine and chloline. Dont worry, we eat that almost all days of life!!!

The B5 vitamin provokes an chemical reaction and synthetise chloline into acetylcholine. B5 need acetyl-L carnitine to be able to do it. To have chloline, you need Methionine to change the Dimethylaminoethanol into it. There are several type of food that give us these nutriments.

Dimethylaminoethanol:
- sardine

Chloline:
- eggs, liver, wheat germs, porc, beef, soja, shrimps, cod, peanut butter, almonds, macadam nuts, artichoke, brocoli, cabbage

Methionine:
- cod, parmejano, tuna, turkey, porc, veal

B5:
- chocolate, liver, sunflower seeds, wheat, eggs

Acetyl-L Carnitine:
- sheep, lamb, baking powder, beef, chicken, milk
