How to sleep better: A study in sleep

After running a test to determine magnesium levels for David Keel this prompted him to make a conscious decision and effort to improve and record his daily magnesium intake. For 6 weeks between March and April this year, he took 400mg of magnesium glycinate in a single daily dose consistently.

Now David is an absolute tech obsessed individual who collects dozens of data points related to his health. He is extremely conscious of how the interventions of technology can impact health and inform decisions on how what to do next. In this regard, we analysed Davids sleep data to compare the average amount of sleep he was having before recording and taking magnesium compared to his period of consistent daily intake magnesium.

Magnesium is often cited as a key component in aiding sleep which in turn lead to improved recovery and productivity. It is an essential component of more than 300 different enzymes in humans. It's essential in hydration, muscle relaxation, energy production and, crucially, the deactivation of adrenaline. Having sufficient magnesium in your body does not necessarily guarantee that you will go into a deep sleep quickly and stay there, but insufficient stores of the mineral guarantee that you won’t!

So what does this mean for David?! Well through our analysis at Vitamyn HQ using our algorithms, we were able to tangibly show David that his efforts in recording and taking a daily dose of magnesium resulted in improved sleeping patterns.

This is a YTD screenshot from David. As you can see he has had consistently longer sleep per night than the previous 6 months. This is a prime example of how Vitamyn is using technology to help inform supplement users on how their interventions are helping them.
