The Somnogenomics-report provides insight into the genetic predisposition to various aspects of sleep. On average, we spend one third of our lives sleeping.

A good night’s sleep is important for the recovery of the body and mind. With insight into the genetic predisposition to different elements of sleep, you get to know yourself better and you may be able to improve your night’s sleep or adjust your daily rhythm to your sleep needs.

PLEASE NOTE: The Somnogenomics-report can only be purchased in combination with the Stress-genomics-report.

Sleep time and Sleep time

A morning person will be more active in the early morning and will be a lot more productive during the first hours of an early working day than a night person.

There are genetic variants that play a role in this, and understanding this may mean you might want to plan your workday differently, if possible. The need for sleep also has a genetic factor.

Someone who genetically needs a lot of sleep would do well to take this into account. to keep up.

Sleep latency

One falls asleep before his or her head hits the pillow, while another needs half an hour of ceiling staring every night.

The time between going to bed and actually falling asleep is of course different every night, but the average length of this has a genetic aspect.

Sleep quality

It will seem familiar to everyone that not every night of sleep brings the same well-rested feeling.

A short night has an effect, but nights with sufficient sleep will not always feel as refreshing. The regenerative effect of a night depends on several aspects, for example restlessness during sleep and the number of times waking up per night can play a role.

Genetically, different genes influence the quality of sleep and how rested someone feels during the day.

Caffeine Induced Insomnia

Most people probably know that coffee and the psychoactive substance caffeine it contains are not conducive to a good night’s sleep.

For example, some people can no longer drink coffee after dinner without being bothered at bedtime, while others have much less.

In addition to a built-up tolerance to caffeine through regular consumption, genetic variants affect this individual sensitivity to caffeine.

Sleep Deprivation Resistance

Unfortunately, we don’t get a good night’s sleep every night. There are many reasons why we don’t get to the minimum amount of sleep we need per night.

The extent to which this sleep deprivation, also called sleep deprivation, has an effect on, for example, concentration and cognitive abilities the next day, can differ greatly.

Genes are related to the extent to which sleep deprivation affects our mental capacities, we call this sleep deprivation resistance.

Restless Legs Syndrome

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a disease that consists of unpleasant sensations in the legs, such as pain and tingling, which often lead to a strong urge to moving the legs because this can sometimes relieve the unpleasant feeling.

The complaints mainly occur in the evening, just before going to bed and during the night. The Somnogenomics-report estimates the risk of RLS based on eleven genetic markers.
