Galantamine

Galantamine is a natural compound from the popular Caucasian snowdrop. This lucid dreaming supplement increases your memory, recall, dream intensity, and more.

DreamLeaf

DreamLeaf Lucid Dreaming Pills

DreamLeaf is another lucid dreaming pill created by lucid dreamers and instead of 1 pill you have 2 different kinds of pills, you may remember these pills from The Matrix. The ingredients of these pills are valerian root, mugwort, alpha GPC, choline bitartrate, and huperzine-A. This pill is almost identical to LucidEsc and has the same results as mine, but instead of using the pill once you have to use one before bed and the other in a wake back to bed. Have used them for a short period of time and stopped using them, because it was an effort for me to do one before bed and the other when I woke up in a wake back to bed. The reason was, that the pills are pretty big and require water, and I don’t have water next to my bed.

  • Better recall.
  • The increased vividness of your dreams.
  • Improved memory.
  • Better awareness in your dreams.
