If you rarely remember dreams and have many dreamless nights, you can change that now.

Many people cannot remember their dreams from the previous night after waking up. Researchers found that vitamin B6 before bed improves the memory of dreams.

100 healthy Australians between 18 and 40 years of age were administered either 240 milligrams of vitamin B6, a placebo, or a mixture of B vitamins for five consecutive evenings in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (1), and their dreams were recorded upon awakening the morning after.

According to the study authors, many participants did not remember their dreams at the beginning of the experiment, but for the group that took B6, that changed after the 5 days.

And although the vitamin had no effect on the “vividness, bizarreness, or color” of the participants’ dreams, it significantly affected their memory of them. Vitamin B6 participants said their dreams became clearer and more real, and that their memories did not diminish throughout the day.

According to study co-author Dr. Aspy, these findings may suggest that B6 could enable people to experience clearer dreams.

Why it is good to remember your dreams

“A lucid dream has many potential benefits,” Dr. Aspy explains. “For example, it may be possible to use lucid dreaming to overcome nightmares, treat phobias, engage in creative problem solving, refine motor skills, and even rehabilitate physical trauma.”

Further research is needed to determine whether the effect of vitamin B6 also occurs through normal diet (vitamin B6 is found in legumes, bananas, avocados, spinach, and potatoes, for example) and not just through a supplement.

Since vitamin B6 not only intensifies dreams but also supports adrenal function, keeps stress in check and ensures that your nervous system is healthy, it is definitely worth including it in your diet or supplementing if necessary, e.g. with Ogaenics B-Happy Vitamin B Complex in organic quality. And, maybe it will give you the opportunity to finally tell your friends about your dreams!
