Brilliant Dreams is based on natural herbal extracts and scientifically formulated to make your dreams much more vivid and intense and improve your ability to remember dreams.
Galanthamine, a key ingredient in Brilliant Dreams, has a 3,000 year medicinal history and has only recently been re-recognized for it's dream enhancing benefits!
|Brilliant Dreams is based on scientific and clinical research - we are PROUD to REFERENCE all of the SCIENTIFIC STUDIES backing our claims near the bottom of this page.
Galanthamine & Dreaming
Brilliant Dreams™ features galanthamine, a natural herbal extract from the bulb of the Lycoris radiata plant, native to China and Japan. Galanthamine naturally boosts dreaming activity, supports memory function and also enhances nicotinic receptor activity, an effect long known to benefit memory and intellectual ability!
Natural Dream Aid - Scientific Facts
It is well known that REM sleep (Rapid Eye Movement sleep) is an indication that someone is dreaming. This is a very specific state in the sleep cycle, having unique brain waves and 'active' areas of the mind. Professional studies have shown that galantamine has a positive effect on REM sleep and the dream cycle.
In these studies it was discovered that this extract:
- Enhances Dream Vividness - Individuals report they experience very interesting and vivid dreams!4
YOU ENJOY VIVID, LUCID DREAM STATES WITH EXCEPTIONAL CLARITY
- Improves Memory & Cognitive Ability - Clinically proven to improve memory and recall.
IMPROVED DREAM RECALL AND LONG TERM MEMORY
- Shortens REM Sleep (dreaming) Latency - The time from sleep onset to the first occurrence of REM sleep.
YOU BEGIN DREAMING SOONER
- Increases REM Density - The ratio of time spent dreaming to total amount of time spent asleep.
YOU EXPERIENCE MORE REM SLEEP (DREAMING) EACH NIGHT
- Reduces Slow Wave Sleep - Reduce very deep, non-dreaming sleep3 -Another positive indicator for
INCREASING TIME SPENT DREAMING
Experience more Beneficial REM Sleep...
This dream herb has been evaluated in dozens (if not hundreds) of clinical studies that verify its ability to maintain and possibly increase memory and intellectual ability, leading to better dream recall.
Other Benefits - Choline & Vitamin B5
Brilliant Dreams Dream Enhancement Supplement ™ also contains the nutrients choline and vitamin B5. Choline is a precursor to beneficial acetylcholine (ACh) and is required for the body to manufacture ACh neurotransmitters. Vitamin B5 is a cofactor (helper nutrient) to the body's production of ACh. These two nutrients work together in the body to promote ACh production, enhancing dreams.
This combination of encouraging acetylcholine neurotransmitter production while inhibiting acetylcholinesterase improves memory & cognitive ability, and promotes much more vivid dreams with better dream recall!
Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone in the body that promotes restful sleep and REM sleep. In this way, it has been shown to lead to greater dream frequency and longer dream duration.5 This may include increased REM sleep just prior to waking, a time when it is easier to remember dreams
From The Bringer of Dreams to Brilliant Dreams™
Three thousand years ago, in Homer's epic poem Odyssey, the god Mercury (Hermes) gave Ulysses an herb called Moly. This herb made Ulysses immune to the forgetfulness poisons of the witch Circe and counteracted the amnesia that Circe had inflicted on his crew.
In Greek and Roman mythology, Mercury is known as the Messenger for the Gods and the Bringer of Dreams . By having the Bringer of Dreams give Ulysses this herb, perhaps Homer was also conveying the historically known dream enhancing benefits of this extract!
Based on Homer's description and flowers native to the region, scholars believe moly to be the herb Galanthus nivalis (common snowdrop), one of the plants from which the memory beneficial and dream enhancing natural nutrient Galanthamine is extracted.1 Other plants include the red spider lily (Lycoris radiata) and daffodil. Galanthamine is a natural herbal extract and a key ingredient in Brilliant Dreams.
The plight of Ulysses in The Odyssey may be the oldest known account of the use of an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) for restoring memory and cognitive ability and indication of the early known dream enhancing benefits of this herb!!
BOOSTING the Dream Phase - Detailed Science
Let's review the four dream enhancing factors that Brilliant Dreams™ is designed to target:
In order to understand how Brilliant Dreams™ achieves these goals, we will look at how communication occurs between neurons. These activities are actually quite complicated. For the benefit of simplicity we will only discuss those affected by Brilliant Dreams™: the electro-chemical communication between neurons (nerve cells), with focus on the chemical part.
|It is interesting to note that the Nobel Prize winning discovery that nerves communicate via a chemical process was attributed to a dream!
Information is transmitted in the brain from one neuron to another across a synapse, a very small gap between two neurons. A key part of this process begins with the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) from the a transmitting neuron and stimulation of a receiving neuron. ACh makes a bridge between two neurons, creating an action potential that enables one neuron to stimulate (send a message to) another.
This occurs in three steps: 1) Release of acetylcholine 2) nicotinic receptor stimulation, and 3) ACh breakdown by acetylcholinesterase (AChE).
1) view of the pre-synapse of the transmitting neuron releasing the ACh chemical message. Release (exocytosis) involves the export of material from a cell. In the case of nerve cells, ACh is released from the pre-synaptic membrane in to the synapse (gap) between nerve cells.
2) The second process is activation of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (NAChR). ACh, having just been released from the pre-synaptic membrane, is thrown onto the post-synaptic receptors on the other side of the synapse. The molecules of ACh then bind to the the NAChR, allowing sodium to diffuse into the cell, creating an action potential.
3)Third phase: The receiving neuron can then go on to stimulate whatever it is supposed to stimulate and the free roaming ACh is broken down by acetylcholinesterase (AChE). This is where Brilliant Dreams , an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) comes in.. by inhibiting an overabundance of AChE, neurons are better and more reliably able to communicate, stimulating dreams, helping memory (dream recall) and cognitive abilities.
