Can nutrition help me remember my dreams ?

You should be able to to remember your dreams with a little nutritional intervention. Your nervous system is dependent on vitamin Bs, which are present in many foods but removed by processing and refining (of grains, for example), and are depleted in the body by stress and alcohol. So many people today are not getting enough.

At the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, the specific vitamin B related to dream recall is vitamin B6, but vitamins Bs do work together so it is best to take a complex plus extra B6. Take 50mg of vitamin B complex with breakfast and dinner (either as a vitamin B complex or in a multivits), plus 50mg B6 at breakfast, lunch and dinner (totalling 250mg of vitamin B6), and 15mg zinc with breakfast. If this does not work, take an additional 15mg zinc with breakfast. If this does not work, take an additional 50mg of vitamin B6 before bed. Also reduce your alcohol intake and stress levels, and eat vitamin B-rich foods (wholegrains, brewer's yeast, lentils, most vegetables).
