Lucid Dream Pills: Galantamine, Huperzine-A and Choline

Whare are the best lucid dream pills?

Galantamine (found in supplements like Lucidimine, DreamTech and Relentless Improvement) is most frequently hailed as the king of lucidity pills.

More recently, huperzine-A has become a popular lucidity inducer (found in supplements like DreamLeaf and LucidEsc).

Both galantamine and huperzine-A are acetylcholine esterase (AChE) inhibitors which means their primary effect is to block to normal breakdown of the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.

Both are commonly combined with choline for enhanced dreaming and to prevent headaches. Supplements dedicated to lucid dreaming generally include this. If not, you can buy choline separately.

DISCLAIMER: Before taking any herb or supplement, you are strongly advised to consult a qualified physician. What you do with this information is entirely your responsibility.

Using Galantamine for Lucid Dreams

An extract from the Red Spider Lily, galantamine is proven to significantly improve cognitive function and both waking and dream memory.

The effects of galantamine were discovered more than 3,000 years ago by the Ancient Greeks, when Homer described its effects on dream recall. It has also been used in China for centuries as a memory enhancer.

Galantamine is now used to treat Alzheimer's Disease, a degenerative condition of severe memory loss. A common side effect reported by patients taking galantamine is highly vivid and memorable dreams.

Research by Dr Stephen LaBerge shows galantamine significantly intensifies your dreams on many levels, including cognition, lucidity, recall, control, bizarreness and visual vividness.

A good source of galantamine for lucid dreaming is Lucidimine, sold by Amazon:

Lucidimine Pill

Lucidimine Nootropic Supplement

(Contains galantamine, alpha-GPC, CDP-choline and L-theanine)

Galantamine is an acetylcholine esterase (AChE) inhibitor. Besides preventing memory loss, this increases the length of your REM sleep phases and enhances the intensity of your dreams.

To facilitate the production of acetylcholine and enhance the intensity of your dreams further, try to get more Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) into your diet through foods like liver, bran, sunflower seeds, mushrooms, cheese, fish, sun-dried tomatoes and avocados.

If you can't see to doing this through your diet, try a Vitamin B5 supplement.

Using Huperzine-A for Lucid Dreams

Huperzine-A is a highly purified product of Chinese club moss. It's used in Alzheimer's Disease, memory and learning enhancement, and increasing alertness and energy.

It's now used in a number of lucid dream pills:

DreamLeaf Advanced Lucid Dreaming Supplement

DreamLeaf Advanced Lucid Dream Supplement

(Contains 5-HTP, mugwort, huperzine-A, choline bitartrate and DHEA)



LucidEsc Lucid Dreaming Pills

LucidEsc Dream Enhancing Supplement

(Contains huperzine-A, alpha CPC and choline)

How to Take Your Lucid Dream Pills

Get at least 4-6 hours of sleep before taking a galantamine or huperzine-A supplement.

This will give you a decent amount of deep sleep before embarking on prolonged periods of REM sleep (lengthened by the effect of acetylcholine).

What's more, your REM periods grow longer toward the end of the night anyway, so this timing makes the most of your active dream phases.

Dosage depends on the brand so check the instructions on the bottle. Typically a 4-6mg dose creates a noticeable effect on dream intensity. You might increase to 12mg over time if necessary.

This dose will yield significantly more vivid and memorable dreams, and will likely lead to lucid dreams when combined with your regular lucidity training.

After taking a lucid dream pill, lay quietly in bed incubating your lucid dream intention.

The hypnagogia should come fast. Use it to visualize your desired dream scene and repeat in your mind the mantra: "The next scene will be a dream."

Become a master lucid dreamer.
