Reishi Ganoderma is a type of plant that has been known to stimulate lucid dreams.
It is an ingredient in some popular sleep aids, including the Ganodermal Dream Sleep Mask, and the Sleep Aid Sleep-Aid.
However, while these are effective at reducing symptoms in those who have experienced them, they do not have any effect on the brain.
Now researchers have found a way to use this plant to treat lucid dreams by providing it with the correct nutrients.
The research team from the University of Copenhagen used a technique called high-resolution liquid chromatography coupled to fluorescence microscopy (H-SCF-MS) to analyse the chemical structure of Reishi, the active ingredient in Ganodermal.
Their results show that the chemical composition of the plant is very similar to a compound known as ketone, which is found in ketones in the body and is produced when certain carbohydrates are digested.
The ketones are important for the body’s energy production, and ketones also contribute to sleep and mood.
Ketones have been shown to act as an appetite suppressant, and when combined with Reishi they have been reported to produce an increased appetite, increased appetite stimulation, and a decrease in REM sleep.
“Reishi is a very popular and well-studied plant in the sleep aid industry, and we believe this is the first study to show its effects on lucid dreams,” said lead author Andreas Bjørnsson.
“The results also provide the first evidence that Reishi may be able to improve lucid dreams.”
The study was published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
The findings suggest that Reishias ketones may provide an effective treatment for lucid dreams, but they will have to be further investigated.
