Neurotransmitters & Lucid Dreaming
Some people fail in their lucid dreaming induction attempts despite the fact that those induction techniques have worked before. The only difference may have been the levels of certain neurotransmitters during REM sleep.
A neurotransmitter is a chemical in the brain that transmits messages from one nerve to another.
Fluctuations in neurotransmitters control our sleep cycle.
The neurotransmitter that seems to have biggest the impact on lucid dreaming is Acetylcholine (ACh).
Why Consider Supplements?
Taking supplements that raise ACh levels can improve the wakefulness of the dreaming brain and the thus improve chances of lucidity.
Acetylcholine increases our memory of dreams and promotes REM sleep. It can be used to trigger lucid dreams and help maintain our consciousness when attempting a WILD.
Lucid dreamers often struggle with length, frequency, vividness, recall, and control in their dreams.
Supplements can be a very powerful tool in your lucid dreaming arsenal to tackle these challenges.
A Word Of Caution
One of the most common mistakes we see beginners make is relying too much on supplements. That’s like someone who buys a bunch of weight loss pills, and protein powders expecting to get in shape.
Supplements will not cause lucid dreams per se. Supplements help, but they will not give you results on their own. You need to focus on the basics of lucid dreaming such as dream journaling, reality checks, meditation, etc.
Research Is Key
Regular lucid dreamers leverage supplements all the time – supplements might be that one thing you need to nudge you into the flow of consistent lucid dreams. However we strongly urge you to do some research before picking up just any supplements.
Before taking supplements, you must know things like:
- The safest, and most proven to work supplements for lucid dreaming
- How to take the supplements - you need to know the smartest process to take the supplements for maximum lucid dreams
- What effects will the supplements have on your dreams
- When to take them for the highest chance to trigger lucid dreams
- The adverse side effects that may occur and how to avoid them
- What combinations of supplements to take to have consistent lucid dreams
This process may take some time, but it’s definitely worth it because once you’ve done it, you will have a powerful tool at your disposal to significantly increase your lucid dream frequency. And that skill will be with you for the rest of your life.
Doing the research is a very useful time investment .
