This is my honest review of Dream leaf. The lucid dream leaf supplement consists of two pills to take, a red and a blue.

You take the blue one first, and then the red one later after 4-5 hours of sleep. The idea being you achieve deep sleep and REM sleep. It claims to promote lucid dreaming and dream recall, so I thought I’d give it a try and let you guys know how it went!

Little note – I really love how the pill colours are based on The Matrix. For those who don’t know, The Matrix is a film which portrays how it might feel in a dream and being able to control the world around you. In order to enter this state, in the film the protagonist is given a choice of a Red or a Blue pill. One will take him into the dream world, the other will wake him up. It’s beautiful!

Dream leaf review


The blue pill knocked me out pretty quickly after I took it (at 9:30pm) and I didn’t dream at all in the time between when I fell asleep and when I awoke.

Then when woke and took the red one at 1:30am and fell back asleep, I seemed to have more dreams than usual, both lucid and not. My dreams seemed more vivid and lasted longer than usual. I remember all or most of the dreams I had and even better, had full control!

I flew over cities, moved mountains with just one finger and had vivid conversations – the type of lucid dream so many hope to achieve!

How to use lucid dream leaf properly

There isn’t much to say regarding using dream leaf. It’s a supplement that is taken in two parts. Two different colors as explained before but they’re taken at different times. That being said, make sure to remember to do reality checks as well as taking this pill.

Lucid support, not induction

I should note that this is helped by the fact I’ve been a lucid dreamer for a while, but I noticed a huge boost in the vividness from dream leaf. Whilst the product helps with lucid dreaming though, don’t expect it to just make you lucid instantly.

Bear in mind, I’ve been lucid many times before and whether it’s as effective for those who haven’t yet managed it, I can’t say.  However I would say it’s definitely worth a try, it’s particularly good at helping you to recall your dreams (a big step towards becoming lucid) and as one of the best supplements out there that I’ve tried, I reckon it could help you on your journey to lucidity.

The dreams I’ve had after taking it are some of the most vivid ones I’ve had in a while.

You should note here that NO lucid supplement can directly induce a lucid state. The best they can do is provide what’s called ‘dream support’ which means they can make it more likely that you’ll lucid dream. This  means you still should be doing the normal things like reality checks, writing your dreams down etc.

In fact, I would recommend that before taking any supplement, you at least have tried to have a natural lucid dream for a week or so. Of course, you don’t have to take my word but I find that the best results with supplements happen when you’re also trying your natural techniques as well.

Dream leaf side effects

There aren’t many side effects of this pill, other than the few mentioned here. Of course, as with any pill or drug you should ALWAYS check with your doctor and make sure it doesn’t clash in any way with anything else you’re taking. Also check the ingredients carefully to make sure you’re not allergic to anything there.

It puts you into a deep sleep!

One thing I would point out is the difficulty of waking up after taking the blue pill – I was in such a deep sleep! As long as you remember to set an alarm to take the red pill (and a loud one at that!) you should be fine, but otherwise I doubt you’ll be able to wake up until the morning.

Maybe try this on days where you don’t have to get up in the morning for a set time. Make sure you’re able to lay in if you need to, at least when you first try lucid dream leaf. It can induce a deep sleep. Nothing at all dangerous, but just be aware of this.

It’s not the cheapest of supplements, but I would say that’s justified by the ingredients, which are expensive on their own. It’s full of good quality stuff. There’s no down side to taking dream leaf, no side effects, no lack of effect, so it seems to me that it’s worth the price. Even if you don’t become lucid, it should still make your dreams more dynamic and improve your dream recall.

Is dream leaf safe?

Yes, totally. It’s one of the safest supplements out there, as it’s been specially tested for lucid dreamers and the ingredients are almost all very natural and healthy. While we’re on that note:

What ingredients are in lucid dream leafs pills?

There are 5 main ones which I think is great because there are loads of pills out there with TONNES of stuff in them that doesn’t need to be. This is different. Here they are: (clicking the links for these goes to my other posts about those specific ingredients in a new tab) Huperzine-A, Mugwort, 5-HTP, Choline Bitartrate, and Alpha GPC

Dream leaf review summary

Overall, I would definitely suggest giving dream leaf a try. If you’re trying to get lucid it could definitely help you on your way if you use it alongside techniques and reality checks, and give you more vivid and interesting dreams along the way; and if you’re already an avid lucid dreamer it’s going to make even better the dreams you’re already having.

There’s nothing to lose really, you get a balanced sleep, more active dreams, and more memory of them when you wake up!  Click here to learn more about dream leaf and check prices.
