Want To Have More Vivid Dreams? Drink This!

The difference between a normal dream and a vivid dream is like a black and white television, compared to an HDTV. If you could choose which television you watched, wouldn’t you choose the HDTV? Wouldn’t you rather be able to see the beautiful colors, and feel like you are actually there? If so, then why are you choosing not to have vivid dreams?

Notice, I typed the word ‘choosing’ in bold. I did that for a reason! When you go to bed at night, and you don’t do anything to improve the vividness of your dreams, it was your choice! There are a lot of things out there that you can do to make your dreams more vivid, its just up to you to follow through!

The lucid dreaming community is constantly looking for ways to improve dream recall and the vividness of our dreams. In recent years, there have been a few major developments. For the sake of this post, I will mention the best in my opinion.

Next time you go grocery shopping, pick up a few bottles of V8. Yeah… I mean that nasty vegetable juice that you can feel going down your throat. It may taste nasty, but it is VERY good for you. Not only is it the perfect substitute for those of us that hate vegetables, but it contains a few things that will greatly improve how vivid your dreams are!

A bottle of V8 contains two of the major discoveries in the world of lucid dreaming. It contains both melatonin and vitamin B6. Vitamin b6 does wonders for our dream recall and the vividness of our dreams. Taking B6 will increase the production of serotonin, which is a chemical released from our brain that makes us happy, thus causing more vivid dreams. Melatonin is a chemical released by the pineal gland that makes our body naturally relax and become tired. The combination of the two have been considered the magic that creates beautifully vivid dreams.

Sure, you could buy each of these things separately at your local pharmacy. In fact, this is what a lot of people do! Personally, I don’t really like taking a bunch of pills, just to try to improve my dreams. By drinking V8, I can get the same effect, without swallowing huge pills!

So, about a half-hour before you are ready to hit the hay, grab a bottle of V8 and down it. If you really hate the taste, just hold your nose and gulp! I learned this as a child when I had to drink cough syrup, and it is a very effective way of not tasting anything at all.

If you decide that you want to give this a try, I would really like to hear about your results. Leave me a comment, and let me know how everything went. Remember, don’t expect results on the very first night. If your dreams are not more vivid after the first night, try again the next night. Your body may need more B6 or melatonin than other people. After a few days of drinking this stuff, you will be amazed at how much more vivid your dreams are, and how much of them you can actually remember!

Until Next Time,
Happy Dreaming

    I am a 26 yr old female who was raised a vegetarian. I frequently drink v8, because it’s great for you and I love the taste. I have had very vivid dreams my entire life, many recurring. This tidbit of information was of great interest to me, seeing as I noticed my dreams are more intense when I drink it before bed. I’ve also noticed that chocolate anytime after supper greatly intensifies my nightmares. Not too sure why though. Anyways, I would love to ask or answer questions on the topic!

    V8’s good, you jackass.

    On the V8 website it does not list vitamin B6 or melatonin for any of the V8 drinks. I plan to try this regardless but I’m just curious if there’s an explanation to this.

    V8-fanboy ahahahahah. But I’m excited to try this, I already have very interesting dreams, but not very vivid. Thanks for the tips!

    It is also known that using a progesterone cream will cause more vivid dreams. I know it does for me. You can buy it over the counter at health food stores.

    Nasty? I love v8. I’ve loved vegetables my entire life. I don’t sleep much because I work 3rd shift now, but I used to have some wild ass dreams and I would right them down detail after detail, because I couldn’t remember them long unless it was dramatic, because I couldn’t turn it into long term memory, which confused the hell out of me because my memory is sharp.
