What amount choline should I take for lucid dreaming?

What amount choline should I take for lucid dreaming?

With "Dream work up": In my opinion lucid dreaming is part of sleep hygiene, such as good and timely comfortable sleep. Choline is an amino acid that also promotes acetylcholine, therefore enhancing the expression of REM sleep. It can be cheaply found as a Lecithin supplement, but is also present in some common foods such as bananas, onions, soybeans, potatoes and plantains. I am not sure there are ways to get a dose. ...Read more

Is there any food that can help induce lucid dreaming?

What's the Diagnosis: Now that's an interesting question. I am trying to think of different pathological states of sleep disorder where dreaming is affected. In those states, REM sleep is also altered and therefore, treatment would involve trying to rectify that sleep phase. However, one would not necessarily look to induce "lucid" dreaming-just normal dreaming. I don't get the medical benefit of "lucid" dreaming. ...Read more
