I know this sounds "nutty" ::rimshot::, but I noticed something due to correlation a few weeks ago. Peanuts before bed causes major lucid dreaming. I
have asked a few of my friends to try this, and 2/3 said they had very vivid dreams the night they tried it, and the other guy claims to never
remember any dreams EVER. So if you have the capacity to dream, or might, give this a shot and report back.
Down 4-5 tablespoons of peanut butter (yuck) or 5 handfuls of peanuts (yum) right before bed.
I've done some amateur research and factors in this might include:
- niacin in legumes
- choline in legumes
- time it takes for digestion to release responsible components is rapid/correlates well to sleep cycles
- other unknown components (THIS, since I drink niacin most every day in Red Bull, and don't have these results)
For those willing to try this, please post your results.
The first few times I did this, I wasn't expecting it (I've just taken a liking to peanuts and snack before bed, heh), and had some amazingly vivid
dreams. The last time I intentionally ate peanuts right before bed going off of this theory, I knew very early into my dream that I was lucid, and I
was flying around my neighborhood (just a dream?). Anyways. Don't take my word for it -- I want you guys to substantiate this claim.
