Dreaming Remedy:

I started taking L-Carnitine (among other supplements) recently and around the same time started to recollect my dreams, about 3-4 a night instead of 1 every once in a while. I didn't make the connection until I stopped the L-Carn last week and almost immediately stopped being able to recall any dreams. I started up again last night and was able to remember 3 dreams this morning. I take 1 TBL on an empty stomach 3x a day.

I can't understand why everybody WANTS to recall their dreams! I know dreaming is necessary for health, but I generally find my dreams dumb, annoying, or disturbing. I'd LIKE to forget them, and wonder if anyone has any ideas on how to *discourage* dream recall and overly-vivid dreaming. Thanks.

THC will interrupt your dream recall.

Both L-Carnitine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine definitely improve my ability to have vivid dreams, as well as to recall them. It works even if I take say 500 mg up to 15 hours before falling sleep. Not only that, but now when I wake up, I can go back to sleep and choose to continue the same dream I had woken up from, with the option of more consciously deciding what I'll do in the dream while I'm awake! I find it pretty incredible. I remember reading somewhere years ago that when you wake up and then fall back asleep, you're 48 times more likely to have a lucid dream........ Anyway, a definite YEA for Carnitine and Dreaming.

First time user here and I have noticed I have been getting bad dreams, also. I am not feeling as fatigued which is another benefit it has for someone who rarely eats red meat. Anyway, I would rather choose to not recall my dreams myself and had found that HOPS lessens vivid-dreaming. Correct me if I am wrong, but drinking a little beer at night worked. It wasn't long after that it felt like a task. There are some sleep/mood support supplements that will have hops. Avoid Valerian esp. if you don't want to remember your dreams.
