"Amino acid blend" better than galantamine?

Postby berggg » 04 Mar 2015 23:35

According to a small study by Thomas Yuschak, an amino acid blend consisting of 2000mg L-aspartic acid,
4000mg L-glutamine and 300mg L-theanine is arguably very effective at inducing lucid dreaming (taken at WBTB).

Anyone who has tried this?

Are there any side effects? The Galantamine can cause insomnia, and you can build immunity. Does the protein have any cons?

Amino acids should not have any side effects. You can't even feel that you've taken them, like you'll do when you take galantamine. In fact L-glutamine especially has many positive "side effects", like increasing HGH (human growth hormone). But if this works in aiding lucidity is another question..

Sorry, a sample size of one is a joke. He might as well say: "every time I (and only I) ride a roller coaster I barf, therefore riding a roller coaster is 100% guaranteed to cause vomiting!"

I need more data before I start popping the pill version of protein shakes. Unless MORE hair and a second puberty are what I'm after...

No this shouldn't have any bad side affects as far as I'm aware.

The thing thou with this is that it does say its effective when used with WBTB .. so this may not at all help without WBTB (that's if it helps anyone seeing it was small study). So this doesn't sound good for anyone who has issues with insomnia.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

I'm sensing the punchline that NOTHING is a good idea with insomnia. Including, I've learned, NOT wanting insomnia.

Amino acids are a fascinating subject, something I am constantly reminding myself I need to study more.
I wish I had something salient to post here, but I'm afraid my knowledge to date is fragmented leads to no conclusions.
Ah well, as was said thousands of years ago, "the road to excellence is paved w sweat".

Yeah, around 500 amino acids have been identified so far. 22 standard amino acids have been identified as far as the human body is concerned. Regarding lucid dreaming, glycine looks interesting to me. Going to add it to my stack a few times & see what it does for me.

Glycine showed up on my doorstep 2day. Will have something to say about experience within 2 wks.
Been researching it as well. Interesting stuff concerning its effectiveness vis a vis stage 3 & 4 sleep stages.
