Eating Bananas And Avocados Helps You Remember Dreams
- May 03, 2018 -

If you tend to forget your dreams as soon as you wake up, eating avocados and bananas might help you remember, according to a new study.

New research from the University of Adelaide has found that taking vitamin B6 could help people to recall their dreams.

The study included 100 participants from around Australia where one group took high-dose vitamin B6 supplements before going to bed and the other a placebo capsule.

For five consecutive days, the participants recorded the colour, vividness, bizarreness and emotionality of their dreams upon waking.

Prior to taking the supplements, many of the participants rarely remembered their dreams, but they reported improvements by the end of the study.

After completing the study, one participant noted that “It seems as time went on my dreams were clearer and clearer and easier to remember. I also did not lose fragments as the day went on.”

Another participant said: “My dreams were more real, I couldn’t wait to go to bed and dream!”

Research author Dr Denholm Aspy, from the University of Adelaide’s School of Psychology, said: “Our results show that taking vitamin B6 improved people’s ability to recall dreams compared to a placebo.

“Vitamin B6 did not affect the vividness, bizarreness or colour of their dreams, and did not affect other aspects of their sleep patterns.

“This is the first time that such a study into the effects of vitamin B6 and other B vitamins on dreams has been carried out on a large and diverse group of people.
