Normally (for countless years), I have had no recall of my dreams. Until...

Last month, I decided to eat a couple of ordinary raw jumbo white mushrooms (from Costco) before bedtime... specifically to avoid reaching for a worse bedtime snack, such as cereal.

That night, I had intensely fun and vivid dreams that I easily recalled the next morning. I was surprised that I had actually recalled a dream.

So I tried the mushrooms again. And again. And again. To my delight, the vivid dreams have continued, every night, without exception.

While my dreams aren't exactly psychedelic – as reputed with hallucinogenic 'shrooms – my dreams are extraordinary and magical. I've wondered if any mushroom might have some subtle effect.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar? (Mushrooms aren't an ordinary thing to reach for at bedtime.) Would any of you be willing to give this a try and report back? Just one jumbo mushroom does the trick for me.

I'm sure this sounds weird, but now I can't imagine bedtime without mushrooms.

I don't know if mushrooms increase serotonin levels or not. But I know that when I take a Melatonin before bed, I have much more vivid dreams (that I recall).

I dream of eating mushrooms, they are currently fruiting in my mini fridge ... Ok I have been dreaming about growing LEGAL shrooms but only because they taste good and there is really nothing like home grown anything.

You really should not eat them raw, I assume you mean common button (Agaricus bisporus). It is best to cook them a bit which will kill off most of the nasty cancer causing stuff (carcinogenic hydra-zine derivatives).

Funny thing is some help fight cancer.

Ive had freaky dreams after eating a pack of "baby bellas" for dinner. I just ate one large portabella before sleeping. Lets see what happens.
Perhaps fungal sporealating bodies all have some sort of mental stimulus

I eat lots of mushrooms. Crimini, button, portobello, shiitake, oyster, porcini, etc... I dont recall ever having vivid dreams after eating them. But then I never really pay attention.

What a strange, very random late night snack choice. An excellent choice, but it sounds kind of funny.
Perhaps it isn't the mushroom, but the fact you are avoiding cereal and other high sugary foods before bedtime. Just a thought.


Would be cool if the original poster came back with updates.

Heyyy I just registered to tell you that YESSS! I eat a soup of mushrooms and that night I had two vivid dreams. One was about pigs that came to life after being a bit cooked in the oven (?) so weeeeird, and the other was about a guy I was meeting, the dream was telling me that he was not a person I can trust. I want to go and buy some mushroom and eat one tonight to see what effect it has

There is a B vitamin that will give you vivid dreams. For me, meat does it. Can't remember which one. I also can't take multi vitamins which are high in B vitamin.

I recommend this supplement. The company was introducing this as a new product and offered it at a substantial discount, basically giving it away. I ordered it and have been taking it and I really like it. It's a mushroom "complex" and contains a blend of 7 different types.
