How do I use Lucidimine?

For Daytime Use as a Nootropic:
Lucidimine should be first taken alone, with only one capsule, along with a light meal (this may not be necessary, results can vary). Although Galantamine is in the AChE-I class of chemicals with Huperzine-A, Galantamine has unique actions (such as potentiation of nicotonic receptors) and many people find that the efficacy of Galantamine cannot be duplicated with other AChE-Is. It is probably best to only use one capsule the first few tries and let the body adapt to processing this chemical. One capsule may be all you need. Some people prefer two, but there is a percentage of the population who are "acetylcholine/choline-sensitive" - and even one capsule may be too much (these people are very rare). Take Lucidimine about 45-minutes before engaging in intensive mental work, and cognitive support should last for 5-6 hours. Some people do take Lucidimine on a regular basis...I recommend making sure to at least take weekends off and full-weeks off every other month. 


Using Lucidimine to Support Lucid Dream Induction:
This was the primary mission of Luciminal Nootropics: To develop and offer the premier lucid dream induction supplement at the best value-price. Although I do believe we (or you) will develop an even better formula, this is in my opinion the finest available...for most people. This is how to use Lucidimine for LD-Induction:

1. I recommend you use Lucidimine in conjunction with the Wake Back to Bed method...however, we do not all have the same neurochemistry and I have received reports back that some users take Lucidimine before first going to bed at night and receive "dream support." Why do I keep using the word support? Because...no pill can GIVE YOU a lucid dream. If it was that easy and I sold that pill I would be so rich that I'd be typing this via voice-command from zero-gravity somewhere above the Earth. What Lucidimine can do is optimize the cholinergic pathways underlying REM-sleep in order to instigate "denser/stronger" REM, while simultaneously fueling the circuits underlying rational/waking-like thought, with a smaller likelihood than with other Galantamine supplements of running into the insomnia. 

2. If you have not developed the skills necessary to be an accomplished lucid dreamer, simply optimizing your neurochemistry in this way is no guarantee of success. You should develop the ability (at least for short bursts of time, like for a week or two) to recall and record four, five, or more dreams PER NIGHT before attempting lucidity (this is my opinion and not a hard rule)...again, this does not have to be forever, and it is much easier to recall dreams when using a dream journal.

3. Along with FIRST developing strong dream recall before seeking nootropic supplement support, rehearse and hone-in other lucidity pre-reqs like dream-sign recognition, stabilization techniques, goals/objective-setting. I don't think it is best to look for the one thing that will bring instant lucidity success. Leverage your efforts by combining techniques. Once everything else is dialed in (and it DOES take effort for most people), then Lucidimine may be the missing piece to your puzzle. Of course, some people hit success without all of this preparation, but if you aren't seeing the results you'd like to, do something else!

4. Do NOT take Lucidimine every night! Here's my thinking...most people cannot sleep-in more than one or two days per week (traditionally, Saturday and Sunday). It is best to exhaust the work-week, and on mornings-off you can focus your lucidity efforts. Consider your sleeping environment - is it nice and dark and cool and free from distractions? If you're sharing a bed with a human and/or dog/cat, can you work around their movements and schedule? No need nor benefit to over-taking this supplement, especially if you are not prepared. There has always been talk about the tolerance/build-up of Galantamine, but the science is not straight-forward on this and if following my recs., this should not be an issue.

5. Do not combine Ludicimine with other supps. when attempting lucidity. Do not take racetams the day before taking Lucidimine for induction, including our Noo Day formula, or any piracetam or relative...these tend to inhibit REM-sleep for up to and beyond 24-hours after ingestion. Again, some people report lucidity-support from Noo Day, but this is the exception. Originally, I was aiming for a three-part supplement approach; one formula would be taken at night a few hours before bed to instigate a REM-inhibition with later REM-rebound, one formula to take during peak-REM about 2-hours before final morning awakening, and a next-day formula to "refresh" the mind...this can be achieved by taking, respectively, Noo Brain, Lucidimine, and then Noo Day. Another company takes the first two parts of such an approach -Dream Leaf - we are not affiliated but I am all for having alternatives and choices.

ANSWER - 

Noo Day ingestion is often experienced as a mild euphoria/well-being, accompanied by a clear-headedness. The Noopept and Aniracetam in Noo Day are Racetams - known to potentiate (basically improve) many other nootropic substances. These Racetams typically become more effective over time with continued use, opposite to that of many "enhancement" chemicals. Noopept and Aniracetam may appear to expand or sharpen sensory information (i.e., colors may become more vivid or sounds clearer), and are used when engaging in creative thought/problem solving. Sulbutiamine and NAL-Tyrosine are used by nootropic enthusiasts to support mental endurance (these can also support athletic performance) to dig deeper into challenging, high-brain-power work. Choline is included to avoid excessive acetylcholine depletion which could result from taking Racetams alone.

Many people advise against taking Racetams up to 24-hours prior to attempting lucid dream induction. But some people like to take Racetams the day after using a Galantamine supplement to "re-set" the mind and minimize tolerance build-up to Galantamine.

 

Noo Brain is especially suited for analytical, linear thought. Memorizing facts and data. Recalling specific, concrete memories. Mucuna provides a small amount of natural dopamine for positive mood support (which benefits memory). Vinpocetine promotes blood-flow to the brain - getting more oxygen and nutrients to your neurons; Alpha-GPC and choline and Huperzine support various stages of neural transmission involved in higher-order thought. (Huperzine products are not recommended for direct lucid dream induction but some people do experiment by taking Huperzine ~8-hours prior to intended induction in order to instigate a REM-rebound effect.)

Lucidimine is an improvement to the long-standing favorite lucidity-supporting nootropic - Galantamine. By adding a blend of cholines plus the amino-acid l-Theanine, Lucidimine takes the edge off (or down at least) of Galantamine. This makes it a little easier to fall back asleep when using Lucidimine (for lucidity purposes I recommend using Lucidimine in conjunction with the Wake-Back-To-Bed method) and for those people who often get headaches from Galantamine (like me) this formula is designed to provide powerful cognitive support with minimal side-effects.

Many users use Lucidimine for daytime cognitive support, and buy more every month...not much more to say about that.

Answer - Take Noo Brain or Noo Day or Triplicity about 1-hour before engaging in whatever task you intend to get mental support for. Depending on your mental chemistry (and this can even change from day to day) you may need 1 to 3 capsules but always start with one a few times to make sure you respond well - and as with anything, you want to aim for the "minimum effective dose;" more is not always better.

Time of day depends on what you are doing, and it is not uncommon to take one morning dose and one in the afternoon (some customers do use a split-schedule, for example, taking Noo Day in the morning and Noo Brain in the early afternoon; only personal experimentation will act as your best advice). Noo Day is a racetam-based nootropic so the efficacy will increase over time and may boost the action of many other supplements (although be careful if combining with other cholines or acetylcholine-supporting supplements, there can be too much of a good thing).

Remember that most nootropics last roughly half-a-day and that if taken too late can interfere with sleep. You may find that taking your capsules early in the day is best for your needs or that you would rather wait until midday; it all depends on your lifestyle. Or, there is the split-day approach, such as taking Noo Day in the early morning and Noo Brain at noon. If you drink coffee, butter-coffee is a great combination with Noo Day because this formula should be taken along with a fat source - this makes for a great combination to start your day off. We also recommend eating at least a light meal with the Noo Brain and Lucidimine formulas (if using Lucidimine in conjunction with the Wake-Back-To-Bed method of lucid dream induction, a snack may be an inconvenience and not completely necessary -- a small prepared shake waiting in the fridge might be a good option).

Will I feel immediate effects?

Answer - Probably; well, once the supplements have begun to digest. A smaller percentage of people will require a short time for their bodies to properly recognize some supplements, and after this period will more easily be able to metabolize the ingredients and receive full effects - this may have to do with an epigenetic response (for some people, for some substances, genes have to be “switched on” once a chemical becomes present). Also, each individual will have their own unique “tolerance” or affinity for a particular chemical/nootropic. Generally though, most of us have similar physiologies and respond in similar ways to the majority of chemicals/foods (if this were not the case, medical science wouldn’t have a clue how to treat any disease). 

The aim with nootropic supplementation is to find your own “minimum effective dose;” more is not always better. And, you should always begin with one capsule of any formula and take any new supplement ALONE, without combining it with other nootropics (if possible, do not take in conjunction with any vitamins or supplements beyond normal food). Noo Day will likely have an immediately noticeable effect, not only on cognition but also on well-being (thanks to the Sulbutiamine). Similarly, Noo Brain may provide a slight euphoria because of the Mucuna pruriens - a natural source of l-dopamine (a “feel good” neurotransmitter). The Noo Day, in particular, will likely increase in benefit over time, because that is the nature of racetams. The Lucidimine formula  contains the powerful AChE-I Galantamine HBr, and special caution should be taken with this nootropic; Lucidimine combines Galantamine (and several choline sources) with l-Theanine to help balance-out the robust nature of this nootropic, and the effects will likely be more apparent on the very first use as compared to our other formulas. The stronger a nootropic effect, the more careful you should be and respectful of what these supplements can do. Remember, there is a sluggish brain, and there is a more awakened brain, but too much “up” will lead to a headache. If you do ever experience any adverse or unwanted reaction to a supplement, discontinue use for a few days and if you do return, lower the quantities (if you had been taking more than one capsule). All Luciminal Nootropics are designed to be safe and well tolerated by the majority of people - with that said, there will likely be outliers who are either overly sensitive or overly resistant as compared to the average user. Start slow and work your way up, and do not take any supplement every day.

What do Luciminal and the Associated Logos Mean?

+What does Luciminal Mean?

Luciminal is a portmanteau - a word which fuses the sounds and meanings of several other words. Luciminal combines the words

  • Liminal - Existing in two or more "worlds" simultaneously or on the cusp between.
  • Lucid - Clear in thought or vision; full of light and awake.
  • Minimal - Efficient; what is necessary and nothing extraneous or counter-productive.

+What do the rocks represent?

The stacked rocks often accompanying the Luciminal brand represent several ideas:

  • Having a solid base from which to build on.
  • Balance - the relative "weight" of each aspect of life should be in balance and accord with all of the others...this has long been symbolized in traditions like Zen Buddhism as stacked rocks.
  • The "stack" itself parallels the Luciminal formulas/stacks - each component being powerful but also part of a balanced and greater gestalt together.
  • The rock symbolism has different meanings when applied to different formulas; for instance with Lucidimine the rocks symbolize the subconscious mind (where 99% of "You" exists) and a platform for the Lighthouse of Awareness to stand upon.

+What do the Dashes and Lines Mean?

Luciminal is represented by the 32nd Hexagram of the i-Ching - the ancient Chinese Oracle system sometimes claimed as being the oldest still-used book in the world. The 32nd Hexagram is best simplified as PERSISTENCE. Among the virtues worth cultivating, "grit" or persistence is especially powerful when on your quests.
