What can I learn with this product?
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, all sleep-relevant foods and nutrients.
How accurate is MySleepInsights?
Sleep patterns are very complex with many factors playing a role. Sleep patterns are a result of genomic and environmental factors. Also, your insights are based on large population studies in which not all ethnicities are represented equally. Because of these two reasons, some people’s results will be more accurate than others.
Does my DNA have to be sequenced to use MySleepInsights?
Yes. Your DNA must be sequenced by Helix before you can get your MySleepInsights data. 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 have 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 be sequenced again.
How do I learn more about my insights?
MyVytalics encourages you to discuss your insights with your medical professional to obtain further guidance.
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 advance the field of genomics.
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.
