Apple Juice Dreams
Acetylcholine (ACh) is an ester of choline and acetic acid that is the transmitter substance at many neural, or nerve, synapses and at the motor end plate of vertebrate muscles. It affects a number of body systems including the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, respiratory systems, and the urinary tract. It also stimulates secretion by all glands that receive parasympathetic nerve impulses which may increase the probability of having very vivid and sometimes lucid dreams. Apparently, ingesting excessive amounts of apple juice before bedtime increases the release of this neurotranmitter. I am tempted to test this out.
