This wonderful Vitamin Helps People Remember Their Dreams

Vitamin B6 can help you remember your dreams; a new study has suggested. The scientists from the University of Adelaide has found that taking vitamin B6 helps people to reminisce about their fantasy or night terrors.

So, let’s see how the experiment took place:

Dr Denholm Aspy from the University of Adelaide has realized its experiment with the help of 100 volunteers. Half of the participants took 240milligram of vitamin B6 tablet which contained a lot of B vitamins, while the other half group took a placebo, before bed for five nights. The result is: those participants who took only vitamin B6 they remembered their dreams more detailed about 64,1 percent, than the other group. It is also reported that they had better restful sleep and lower tiredness on waking.

“It seems as time went on my dreams were clearer and clearer and easier to remember. I also did not lose fragments as the day went on,” one of the participants said. The other added: “My dreams were more real, I couldn’t wait to go to bed and dream!”.

The reason why vitamin B6 helps remembering dreams Dr. Aspy explained:

There are two theories to explain why B6 may help remembering dreams:

“One was that it might be causing increased alertness and more frequent waking” Aspy indicated. But IFLScience has its point of view on which said “however, this was refuted when the B6-only group described sleep of equal quality to those taking placebos. The more likely alternative is that the part B6 plays in converting tryptophan to serotonin induces initially deep, dreamless sleep”. Aspy proposes that this “causes a rebound so people dream intensively in the last few hours,” when they are most likely to remember.

So, returning the effect of vitamin B6 Aspy has also mentioned that average person spends around six years of their lives dreaming, if we are able to become lucid and control our dreams, we can then use our dreaming time more productively. “It may be possible to use lucid dreaming for overcoming nightmares, treating phobias, creative problem solving, refining motor skills, and even helping with rehabilitation from physical trauma,”

In addition to his saying we would like to inform you a lucid dream is a dream during which the dreamer is aware of dreaming. During lucid dreaming, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over the dream characters, narrative, and environment.
