Default b-12

I haven't been able to remember dreams for years. Then I started B vitamins. I assume it's B-12. I have long, involved dreams, remember them much better, and unfortunately some highly disturbing dreams. I am curious about this now that it's been shown B-12 may delay dementia. Is there any research going on about this?

Shocked Wow!

For the last two nights I've experienced incredibly disturbing nightmares with full recall. I didn't realize it at the time, but I had given myself an intramuscular B12 injection the afternoon before these dreams began to occur. I would say there is very likely a correlation between B12 and nightmares. Very insightful!

Normally I have vivid dreams due to taking LDN, but the two nights I took the B12's I had very disturbing dreams.

Anyone had anything similar?
I was diagnosed with low B12 and was told to supplement.

Since childhood I did not remember my dreams. I was about 30 when I started B12 and depending on my dosage and method of administration I will range from remembering my dreams to vivid dreams. Nightmares and generally anxiety-inducing dreams are certainly a problem at times, but I think the B12 enhances dreaming and so it's more your natural tendency coming through rather than the B12 causing specifically bad dreams. Why you're having nightmares is probably a separate issue.
