I came across this thread two days ago. I caught my interest right away. So I decided to try out the b-vitamins myself. I am writing about it on my blog. You can look at it here: http://www.jakobdk.com

I'm trying the b6 for the first time. Last night was my first night, 100mg about half hour before bed. I woke up after about 5 hours of sleep and had almost no dream recall, figured it was a huge letdown. But then went back to bed and had not only one of the most vivid dreams I've had in quite some time, but a pretty darn messed up and interesting one, too.

I didn't really try specifically to become lucid, I just wanted to test how it affected my dreams. Tonight I'm trying it for the 2nd time. It will be even better.

Interesting to read about vit. B
I have been taking vit. B for some time now because I am a vegetarian and meat contains a lot of vit. B often. I take B 12, 6 and two. And next to that a lot of soy products. And over here in the Netherlands they add vit B 12 and 2 to soy milk etc. Now that I read the thread, I think that my dreams did get more vivid when I started taking these pills. I do not take more then people would usually do though. Vit. B can be bad for a persons health when it is taken too much. Just like with other vitamins.

I also noticed that lots of people here use normal milk before they go to sleep. This is interesting because I heard that a lot of people have trouble digesting certain things that are in milk. Because I have to write in english it is difficult to explain it very cleary, but it is not good for them and most people do not know this because it only gives 'little' problems. It is difficult to see that it might be caused by milk. And this causes bad sleep when you take it just before going to bed, because the body has to do something with that and it does that while you are asleep. It makes sleep less restfull and it makes people wake up more often.

Not sure if that is good for lucid dreaming or not smile I just noticed that lots of people use milk for sleeping, while it might be that it is not so good for sleep at all. I did not know this myself for a long time, just found out that I am one of those people that cannot digest milk right. And with not drinking it anymore my sleep became better as far as I can tell right now.

Last night I had my first experience with this stuff. For maybe a couple of weeks ago I bought a bottle of some sort of B-complex, but I forgotten to take it befor last night. I have bean reading some of this tread now and I can add that I also ate a late dinner last night contaning salomon, bread and veggies. I did noot drink milk yesterday, but I drank a lot of cofee the hole day. And that is maybe the main reason for the sleep to be verry lightly and bad. I just thougth of this while I am writing now. Last night I blamed the effect of this two pills I took before I went to bed. I went straight into dreaming and it was really vivid! After bean dreaming for about 30 min I woke up and could remeber it all, I then did a kind of a wild, I had a short dream without any pictures, I just went up in darknes for a good time, stopped, and took a dive, lett me fall down again! It was great. Then I had a short half lucid dream witch ended with some strange sex, and then I woke again. And did not gett anny real sleep for the rest of the night.

Some stuff I noticed was that even thoe I was tired and full of food, I never gott into a heavy sleep. I went straight into a verry vivid REM state! And when I woke up the first time I knew it could not have lasted for more than around 30 min, since my mate still was doing the dishess in the room next door. Maybe it only lastet for 15 min, but it was verry vivid. I did not found it interesting enough to write it out, but I still can remeber most of last night dreamings.

So the B vitamins absolutly did somthing to me, I will wait a few days before I do it again because I nead some sound sleeping now. I have one question: You saying that it is mostly the B6 that is working on dreams. Where can I buy just B6? I would like to know what a high dose (50-100mg) of this one specific vitamin would do to me.

Thanks for all the great tips in this tread. I will use my B-vits with caution now and then. I think I gott such a good effect because I am not use to it.

You guys should be careful with vitamins and pills because anything manmade usually is poison.

Bananas are an excellent source of vitamin B.

Manmade items are not usually poison (some may be). How do you know this? Most vitamin B tablets are nothing but vitamin B, maybe with some coloring or flavoring added, but nothing that will kill you.

Believe me, I've been there and tried every supplement around. I have progressed and found the truth and power in treating my body to superfoods, (spirulina is loaded with b vitamins) The benefits of fasting, RAW fruits and veggies, and organ cleansing, have had a much more positive effect on not only my dreamtime but also my waking life.

Vitamins from a natural source are the only ones that can be absorbed into the body, most of the supplements out there do not come from food at all.

Chocolate has a little bit of thiamine and niacin.

For me chocolate and dreaming go hand in hand and last week I got a bag of raw cocoa. I have been eating this stuff all the time, even right before bed, there is a little bit of caffeine in chocolate but it hasn't effected me. chocolate is great for the brain and if definitely increases dream vividness.

I had a multi vitamin on Sunday around 11 am. It had 9mg of B-6 in it, and that night I had an LD after a really long time. I hadn't been eating the vitamin prior to that so I assume that it was because of the B-6 in the vitamin that I LDed. However I forgot the next few days to eat the vitamin, and so far I have not experienced an LD. I did remember to take my pill last night, about two hours before I went to bed, but this did not help me attain an LD. Perhaps right before bed doesn't work when it comes in vitamin form, it may need some time to incorporate into the blood stream.

I read an article recently about the condition where you lose some sort of conection with your body. You lose your sense of your body. So that if you don't consciously control your limbs, they won't do what you want to do and you feel disconnected from it. Seemed like quite a difficult thing to live with.
The article said that it often begins with dreams of not having control. And here's the kicker, you can get this condition temporarily by the use of vitamin B6.
I suppose that means excessive use but still, if you start having such dreams. Beware!
