I've read that foods rich in vitamin B6 have the ability to make dreams more vivid. Is this true?

I've read that foods rich in vitamin B6 have the ability to make dreams more vivid. Is this true?

Proven as supplement: A study showed taking 250 mg of b6 increased vividness of dreams. Lower doses might help as well. 250 mg/day can cause neuropathy in some so you shouldn't take that dose for more than a week or 2, but 100 mg/day is safe ; may well help. You can eat foods rich in b6 but it isn't known if the amount you can get from foods will be enough- see http://b6dreams. Com/2011/12/14/b6-and-dreams/#effect. ...Read more
