– An Australian study showed that consuming vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) helps you remember your dreams better. More than 100 participants from across Australia took high-dose vitamin B6 supplements, 240 mg, before bedtime for five consecutive days. Results showed that taking vitamin B6 improved participants’ ability to recall their dreams compared to placebo. Before taking these supplements, many participants rarely remembered their dreams, but reported improvements at the end of the study. Being able to recall one’s dreams seems to be an effective way to overcome nightmares and treat phobias. This University of Adelaide study was published online April 17, 2018 in the scientific journalPerceptual and Motor Skills (DOI: 10.1177/0031512518770326).
