WHAT MAKES MYSLEEPINSIGHTS DIFFERENT

A more comprehensive view into your sleep

MySleepInsights provides more detailed genomic information about more sleep-related patterns. You’ll get insights related to your body’s response to alcohol, caffeine, and certain vitamins, along with your chronotype (whether you’re more likely to stay up late or get up early). And if you choose to participate in the MyJourney research program for future product development, you'll get access to more speculative insights for which research is ongoing, and even more insights over time as the science improves.

The science

Sleep is an important aspect of resting and resetting our minds and bodies. While everyone has to sleep, there are differences in how long it takes us to fall asleep, how long we sleep, and how deeply we sleep. Environmental factors like travel, physical activity, and caffeine intake as well as certain genetic factors can also influence or disrupt your sleep cycle.

MySleepInsights looks at many different aspects of sleep and the role that genetics plays in them. The product also includes insights related to how you metabolize certain nutrients. These nutrients may influence your sleep cycle, although the role genetics plays is less clear.

Impact

Genetics plays a small role in both your sleep cycle and how you metabolize nutrients.

Limitations

  • This product will not provide any medical information.
  • Results may be more accurate for individuals of certain genetic backgrounds.
  • Results do not determine or limit your ability to fall asleep, stay asleep, or wake up.
  • Genetic results are based on population-wide studies. What is true at a population level average may not be true at an individual level.
  • Some results in this product are based on preliminary research. Your results may change as MyVytalics’ research for future product development expands our understanding of sleep and genetics.

How it works

Get access to the best and latest in DNA discovery. It takes just 3 simple steps.

Order and we’ll send a DNA kit to your home

Order MySleepInsights and Helix sends you a DNA collection kit, which includes everything you need to get sequenced.

Provide a saliva sample and get sequenced

Register your DNA kit, provide a small saliva sample, and drop it in the mail using the provided pre-paid shipping box you get in your kit.

Receive email from MySleepInsights

MyVytalics will send you an email when your results are ready to be viewed online.

The Helix DNA kit

To capture the information stored in your DNA so it can be used for this product, we need to collect a small, one-time saliva sample from you. This kit has everything you need to provide that sample from the comfort of your own home, and you’ll never have to provide another.

  • A unique Kit ID you’ll use to register your kit

  • Saliva collection tube, cap, and printed instructions

  • A small bag and prepaid box to send your saliva sample to our lab

Questions

  • Do I have to get sequenced to use this product?

    Yes. In order to use MySleepInsights, you must be sequenced by Helix. To ensure the quality and accuracy of the genetic information used for this service, products in the Helix marketplace do not accept genetic data from outside sources. And, once you’ve been sequenced by Helix, you can purchase more DNA-powered products from a variety of categories like fitness, nutrition, entertainment, and more—all without having to get sequenced again.

  • How does Helix provide my DNA information to MyVytalics? Is it shared with anyone else?

    Your DNA information is stored securely by Helix. When sequencing is complete, Helix only sends the relevant DNA information needed by MyVytalics to generate your results. We do not share your DNA information with anyone without your permission. We always maintain high standards when it comes to the security and privacy of your DNA information.

  • How do I view my results?

    MyVytalics will send you an email when your results are ready to be viewed online.

  • Why are MySleepInsights results more accurate for certain people?

    Genetic associations used by this product were originally discovered in European populations and may or may not be applicable to people from a different background.

  • How do I learn more about how MyVytalics uses my information?

    You can learn more in the MyVytalics Privacy PolicyTerms of Service, and Product Consent.

  • What can I learn with MySleepInsights?

    The MySleepInsights product looks at variants in your DNA associated with many sleep patterns including insomnia, sleep duration, chronotype (morning vs. night person), ease of getting up, dozing, snoring, and napping. This product will also give you information on how your DNA influences your response to caffeine, alcohol, vitamin D and vitamin B12, sleep-relevant foods

  • Do I need to participate in MyJourney surveys?

    No. Participation in the MyJourney surveys is completely voluntary. However, if you choose to participate you will get additional insights based on the most current scientific data. In addition, you could be helping improve and refine this product.

  • Do I need a fitness tracker device?

    No. Providing access to your activity tracker device (e.g., Fitbit, Apple Watch) is completely voluntary. If you participate in this research, you will not only help us learn more about the connections between DNA and health, but you will also will be one of the firsts to know about any breakthrough findings.
