Okay, so I have been taking Alpha Brain for about 1 week now. I have been experimenting with different times and how many pills I take (1-2). My dream recall has been very good and very early this morning was my first vivid dream while taking this supplement. I have been keeping a dream journal now for almost 5 months and after typing in my journal I have come to realize that this mornings journal entry has been the longest one yet.
It is hard to tell whether or not this is just part of my natural progression of dreaming and dream recall or it is the supplement doing its work. I have a feeling it is both. I’m not sure what other peoples experiences are, but aside from the experiencing good dream recall immediately, it has taken one full week to have a really vivid dream. My vivid dream though was more like a vivid nightmare, which is unusual for me because in the past 5 months I can only recall having like one nightmare. I don’t think it had anything to do with the supplement but more to do with some of the stress I have felt in the past few days.
My nightmare though wasn’t a typical nightmare. It started off normal, then turned into a nightmare and then ended on a positive and surprising note. In the past if I had a nightmare, the whole thing was just bad. So this one was very different. This is also my first dreaming experience in the past 5 months where after I woke up and started writing down the dream, I had an epiphany. I actually understood the dream and I think that is because it was a very full dream and I could recall it mostly from start to finish. Most of my dreams are just very strange and don’t make much sense or at least the meaning isn’t very clear to me. This nightmare / dream was very different in that regard.
I don’t know how many pills i have left, but I will just continue taking them and report back what I notice. I still meditate and do reality checks daily to help to have a higher chance of having a lucid dream, so we shall see…

Okay So it has been over 4.5 months since I have been practicing lucid dreaming & astral projection and it has been a very exciting and frustrating ride. The nights you have great vivid dreams, experience the vibrations or have a lucid dream are great, but then there are those mornings you wake up and have no result except maybe just remembering your dreams. To be honest, just remembering your dreams isn’t all that bad, I guess I just need to manage my expectations right?
Back in February I was thinking about experimenting with a supplement for my dreams and I came across alpha brain. I have heard of it before on Joe rogans podcast but never knew that it could help with lucid dreams. So I went out and bought it. I experimented with it for about two days and did not have a positive experience. I experienced a lot of brain fog the next day I woke up which really bummed me out especially since Alpha Brain is not very cheap.
Anyway, fast forward to April and I have decided to give Alpha brain a second chance. I recall having some sinus issues around the same time I originally tried it, so perhaps it was a fluke.
So, I took just one pill (not the recommended 2) last night around 6PM. The reason I took it so late was because I read a blog about someone who was experiencing lucid dreams when taking this 3-5 hours before going to sleep. I thought I would do the same. Not long after taking the pill I noticed being more alert and having more mental energy. When it was time to go to sleep I did not have any issues, however, I did have a slight problem going back to sleep when waking up in the middle of the night. I did not have any lucid dreams last night, but my dream recall was greatly improved. It’s funny because in one of my dreams I was even talking with a dream character about alpha brain. At one point in one of my dreams I even started doing telekinesis which is something that is common for me. So for this morning I have not experienced any brain fog!
I plan on taking one pill 4-5 hours before going to sleep until I run out. I will write a blog each morning describing my results. So feel free to subscribe to the blog to find out more about my experiences with Alpha Brain.
