      Little known Yuschak publication: Amino Acid Blend gives "100% LDs"

      Interesting that from another thread Goldenspark started I found my way to another Yuschak paper that I was not previously aware of. You can find it online:

      substances_that_facilitate_lucid_dreaming_-_a_case_study.pdf

      VERY interesting that it lists a blend of 3 amino acids as having a 100% LD rate (4/4, one test subject) with "high" lucidity noted! And way cheaper than galantamine!

      The dosages used for all tests incorporating this amino acid blend were 2000mg L-aspartic acid, 4000mg L-glutamine, 300mg L- theanine.
      This is a must for follow up. My son is into body building and he has super amino acid mixtures and he said when he took it before bed once he had wild and really vivid dreams. There's a scoop left at the bottom of that container I may just see how it goes....it's just amino acids, after all -- it's all natural!

      Hi FryingMan, replied to you in my thread before seeing this!
      I must re-read it about the amino acid mix. What are the side-effects?

      All 3 of them enhance the function of Glutamate, a key neurotransmitter in dreaming and waking experience.

      So for side effects;

      "In neuroscience, glutamate is an important neurotransmitter that plays a key role in long-term potentiation and is important for learning and memory"

      L-Theanine is as component of Green tea. And can be taken from tea as well. Probably a better source.
      L-Aspartic-Acid acts as a necessary component in Sugar uptake .. is also one of the ingredients in Aspartame. It has many more functions. Increases bladder function and I think might enhance memory formation as well.

      The combined side-effects from what I gathered should result in a Caffeinated Sugar effect. But much better and cleaner.

      Did you ever try your son's amino acid mixture? I've tried glutamine + theanine twice so far with no results. I left out the aspartic acid because it didn't sound necessary, but after my failed attempts I decided to order some and I'll be adding it to my mixture in the future.

      ^Make sure you get L-aspartic acid and not D-aspartic acid. I learned there's an important difference.

      Thanks for the tip! Fortunately I got L-aspartic acid, but I did wonder if it made a difference whether it was the L- or D- form.

      I tried it last night and I got lucid with wild & crazy late morning dreams! So 1/1 for now Here's the blend:

      aablend.jpg

      I took ~33g, all that was left, 1 serving is 132g, which I think translates to a 1/8 of the listed AAs (the list is shown as 2 servings with 32 oz milk, I did take it with about 8oz whole milk.)

      No theanine, but aspartic acid, glutamine, tyrosine, tryptophan, etc. I also ate about 4 whole grain rye crackers as I read that helps in the uptake of tryptophan, etc.

      I took the mix about 20 minutes before bedtime: 00:20

      00:43 bedtime

      No trouble getting to sleep. Felt a bit unusual, but had plenty of drowsiness. I was quite tired already. It did feel a little bit like how melatonin feels. The tryptophan kicking in -> seratonin -> melatonin?

      06:00 first noticed waking, no recall, kind of disappointed. Sleep felt a bit light/disturbed?

      07:40 wife's alarm, I recalled one dream (not lucid, fairly tame, just walking around my parent's house (primary dream sign, didn't realize it in the dream), greeting people I know just standing in various places in the house. There was a party going on. It was fairly vivid but very low awareness, I didn't look at any of the people except one, I just "felt" I knew who they were.

      09:30 or so

      Oh, wow. OH, WOW! Wild & crazy and increasingly bizarre dreams. In an out of lucidity I don't know how many times. I don't know if the AAs last that long or not but hoo doggy that's dreaming, baby! Normally late morning dreams are quite life-like (and thus not very exciting, usually just hanging around with people), only the earlier ones are bizarre.

      + I had my first recalled dreaming within a dream: In the dream, I was falling asleep and could "see through my eyelids" at some sign, I tried opening my dream-dream eyes into the dream-dream, but the image vanished and I remained "awake" in my dream.

      + At some point my wife was tsking at me for dropping coins all over the place. I said it didn't matter because I was dreaming! I then proceeded through several white-walled rooms with doors playing a lucid game: "what's behind this door? A PARTY!" Laughing and trying the next door. First door held a low-lit white room with just (my wife?) sitting down next to a wall (with a laptop?), I then asked *her*, "what do you think's behind this door? A PARTY!" and I opened it and yes it was a party in there! Dressed up, made up women, mostly middle, aged, one good looking one with cleavage, I stand up two women from the couch, and move to kiss one but wake up.

      I'll add the full DJ later, some very very very wacky scenes. Including arriving in a bus to a mall in (apparently) Hell. I said "Oh man I hate coming to this place!"

      p.s. the mix I took is called "Up Your MASS!"

      Here's the DJ: http://www.dreamviews.com/blogs/fryi...4-04-22-57273/

      @FryingMan I just want to make sure I understand what exactly you took.. 33gs of "Up Your MASS" with 8oz of whole milk and four whole grain rye crackers?

      Seems simple enough and something I can easily do, once I buy "Up Your MASS" and a nice side affect might be I get bigger muscles =P

      Yes. The crackers were "Finn Crisp"s. I took everything about 20 minutes before bed. There may be some benefit to trying it later, during WBTB? Different dosage? I think there was a definite effect since I normally do not have such wild dreams that late in the night (I do have them earlier though, when I recall them, but not so long or with such good recall), even through the dreams were about 7.5-9 hours after drinking the mixture. So maybe bedtime (or an hour before?) is beneficial if there is a delayed reaction? Maybe it was REM rebound since I do not recall any dreams at the 06:00 (5.5 hrs) waking (very very unusual for me usually I remember *something*, even a fragment).

      Time will tell. I'll most certainly be trying that again from time to time. I prefer to use it as a motivation/expectation boost rather than a full-time thing, but we'll see how it goes!

      @FryingMan, I just want to make sure I'm buying the right stuff, if you please, but this is what I find for Up Your Mass - MHP Up Your Mass at Bodybuilding.com: Lowest Prices for Up Your Mass

      *Please don't link any stores. You can mention the name, but no url linking.

      Yes that looks like what I took. Whether it's "the right stuff" I don't know, but that looks to be the "same stuff."

      Today I bought B6, L-theanine, L-glutamine, and D-(couldn't find L-) aspartic acid, hope that works! Will try the AAB again in a few days, tonight I'll see what 50mg B6 does (while jet lagged).

      Ugh I got D and not L, the vitamin shoppe didn't have L that I could see, can you expand on the differences? I haven't opened the DAA yet and it's the priciest of the bunch (around $30+)

      The "Up your mass" does not indicate that I can see wither they're the L or D forms of aspartic acid.

      What's a good source for the L-aspartic acid? Seems the hardest of the bunch to find.

      Those are exciting results! Hopefully it continues to work. I wonder if taking a more comprehensive amino acid blend like that might actually be more effective than just the three amino acids that Yuschak identified. I'll try an all-inclusive amino supplement later on if I don't get any results from Yuschak's blend.

      I bought my L-aspartic acid online from Amazon (I got the Source Naturals brand).

      OK I see the Amazon L-aspartic acid now, thanks. Also waaaaaaaaay cheaper than Vitamin Shoppe's DAA. I think I'll return the DAA since I don't see any mention of it being a major excitatory neurotransmitter like the LAA is, just a testosterone / muscle enhancer. The box also says "only to be taken by healthy adult males"....hmmm.....yeah think that's going back.

      Interesting notion that the blend may even be more effective than the isolated ones!

      However, I'm wondering though about the L- or D-ness of the "up your mass" stuff, since it's focused on bodybuilding, it may be the D- varieties?

      But regardless, I did have the nice results with it. A little more testosterone at my age wouldn't be a bad thing perhaps.

      I wish I could find a smaller container of the UYM than the 5 pound container, we only probably need 30-60g at most at a time and at that pace the container would last a century and maybe lose potency?

      I find that Dutch sites are rather expensive. If we have good sources for Glutamate L-asparctic acid from the same websites I'll see if shipping costs and price matches up for me here overseas.

      Fryingman, To answer your question: L-Asparctic acid is involved in energy efficiency, anti-poisening and quite possibly a neurotransmitter, according to this source. It is also used as a stress-reducor in people with overactive heartbeats,
      Whereas D-Asparctic acid is mostly concerned with releasing sex hormones. (Check this helpful link out)

      ^From the first source they for some reason speculate that L-aspactic acid and L-glutamate possibly acts as a protector for the Brain to actually keep the D-Acid out there. The D-form usually accumulates in the Pituriary and Pineal gland in the brain. All this might indicate that the D-form is quite possibly detrimental for our goal of lucidity.

      I speculate that the brain prefers L form over the D form because they are so much alike but the brain has an in-built mechanism to keep the D form out as long as it has enough of these other molecules. But that is information that might be interesting for a biochemist. Which I do not claim to be!!!

      This website goldnutrition.net lists L-aspartic acid as one of Up Your Mass's ingredients.

      You probably don't need to stick to UYM if you want the enhanced dreams. I think the casein in UYM is part of what makes it effective since casein stays in your system longer than either whey isolate or whey concentrate, so any casein protein powder with a decent amino acid profile will probably have a very similar effect.

      I've seen people report vivid or lucid dreams from protein powders as well as from individual amino acids unrelated to Yuschak's blend, like arginine, tryptophan, glycine, etc. That's what makes me suspect a complete amino acid profile might be more effective than just glutamine, aspartic acid, and theanine. After all, in Yuschak's study his only test subject was himself, so that's not exactly a great sample size for determining how well the blend works for the average person.

      Thanks a lot for that link. That's great to know they're all the L-variety in UYM.

      Yes there's a lot in there so all the bases are covered, unless some of the AAs counteract each other with respect to dreaming. Oh, except it doesn't have Theanine. Odd that I had zero recall at 5 hrs though, it was the 8hrs waking that had all the awesomeness. (again I took it before bedtime).

      It takes a few hours for the level of casein amino acids to reach peak levels in the blood. Since the protein in Up Your Mass is at least half casein, it actually makes sense that the effects would be stronger later in the night.

      I have a whey protein isolate powder that I'm going to be experimenting with over the next couple of weeks. I'll update with any significant results. I'm looking forward to hearing the results you get from the Yuschak blend!

      Thanks for the info. It's just really amusing to me that UYM may be such a good dreaming supplement.

      I have purchased L-theanine and L-glutamine now. I'm returning the D-aspartic acid today and I've ordered L-aspartic acid from amazon which should arrive by Saturday. My first test will be Sunday perhaps after the LAA arrives.

      Yuschak recommends taking the blend at WBTB time, not bed-time, any comments on that?

      I'll also try good old galantamine+choline+alpha-gpc a few times in the next couple weeks. I'm going to try for a super fast get-up-swallow-and-back-to-sleep to avoid the insomnia effect it has had on me so far, and get up a bit earlier (4 hrs instead of 5) to make sure I'm good 'n' tired. I seem to have the best dreams around 6-8 hrs, after 8 hours awareness and recall starts to decline, so taking at 3-4 hrs may be a better time. I will not try WILD since I have yet to WILD at all, they will all be DILD attempts.

      I plan to alternate days between B6, AAB, <nothing>, and the galantamine cocktail. Any particular recommended orderings of this sequence would be welcome.

      As far as I know, individual amino acid supplements are more quickly absorbed and reach peak levels in about an hour, so taking it during a WBTB does make the most sense.

      Regarding galantamine, I take the same combination as you and I've found that taking 300mcg of melatonin at the same time helps me fall back to sleep without suppressing dreams. Some people find L-theanine helps with this as well. Might be worth trying one of those two if galantamine is keeping you awake.

      What effects do you notice from B6? I just ordered some of that as well.

      I'll experiment with the micro-melatonin. I think i triied that once but it didnt seem to help. Another issue is giving in to the temptation to daydream about all the mind-blowing dreams I'm anticipating and that plus the excitatory effect of the combo kept me awake. One other suggestion I read was melatonin at bedtime 3mg perhaps so that there's some still left by wbtb time (also to suppress rem for rebound later when the combo hits), also seen 5htp suggested but that just feels like too many supps at once.

      B6: just started, no idea yet, tried 50mg last night noticed nothing but I'm freshly jet lagged so nothing is definitive until I recover which unfortunately won't probably be fully over for a month because I return in two weeks, just in time to recover from the first part and then have to repeat it all over again

      I also ordered good blue blocking orange safety glasses will see about their effect before bedtime and also wbtb time, long-time insomnia sufferers claim in the reviews they sleep.super well using them with no other sleep aids required.

      Its always nice to have some others to do the experiments with and trade experiences/advice . The AAB experience was very eye opening for me and makes me want to understand more about exactly where vivid long memorable dreams come from. My dreams in the first 6 months of ld training were much more like that much more frequently, without supps, but as I get better at daytime practice the awesome dreams have started to dwindle to where they occur in bursts of 1-2 weeks long, 3-4 weeks apart. There are so many factors: diet, exercise, mental state (stress), excitement, motivation, etc. it's hard to determine what the key factors are. Oh yeah and sleep schedule.

      Nift I'd be interested in your galantamine experiences: how many times have you tried it, what conditions, and results, and how long you've been practicing Ld-ing

      I wonder if 50mg of B6 is too little to experience enhanced dreams. All the success stories I've come across have involved at least 100mg.

      That's interesting about the glasses helping with sleep. I wonder what makes them so effective in that regard. I'm interested to hear your results from that as well.

      As far as my experiences with LDing, I first got into lucid dreaming 10 years ago. I probably could have been a lucid dreaming master by now but I've only spent a small fraction of the past 10 years actually investing the time and effort to lucid dream. It's just hard to stay motivated sometimes.

      Galantamine has definitely increased my frequency of lucid dreams, though. My galantamine + choline combo failed the first few times I used it, but then I switched from choline to Alpha GPC and I've had about a 90% success rate ever since then. A typical galantamine morning for me involves 1 to 3 lucid dreams, a couple of non-lucid dreams about lucid dreaming, and multiple episodes of sleep paralysis where my body feels like it's surging with energy but no dream scene materializes. It makes for some very bizarre sleep.
