"One of the side effects of taking acetyl-L-carnitine regularly is more vivid dreams at night." (Robert Crayhon : The Carnitine Miracle: The Supernutrient Program That Promotes High Energy. M. Evans, Lanham (MD), 1998. p. 158)

"Dreaming Remedy :

I started taking L-Carnitine (among other supplements) recently and around the same time started to recollect my dreams, about 3-4 a night instead of 1 every once in a while. I didn't make the connection until I stopped the L-Carn last week and almost immediately stopped being able to recall any dreams. ... I take 1 TBL on an empty stomach 3x a day."

"Both L-Carnitine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine definitely improve my ability to have vivid dreams, as well as to recall them. It works even if I take say 500 mg up to 15 hours before falling sleep. Not only that, but now when I wake up, I can go back to sleep and choose to continue the same dream I had woken up from, with the option of more consciously deciding what I'll do in the dream while I'm awake!"

"For me, vinpocetine induces lucid dreams and out of body experiences. Well it does so but {only} if I take acetyl l carnitine with it. For me 5 to 10 mg vinpocetine and about 20 - 25 mg of ALC does excellent lucid dream which do get converted sometimes into out of body (OBE) experiences."

"cordyceps cs-4 mushroom. I've been taking it for over a month and I immediately had a side effect of dreaming all night. Even when I wake up from a dream, I go back into dreaming."

"Acetyl L-Carnitine is known for generating vivid dreams, and it helps increase the amount of Acetylcholine within the brain. ... I take Acetyl L-Carnitine before bed and get more vivid, and possibly longer."
