Does Kinobody Sleep Work? My 30-Day Experience and Review of Kino Sleep
I tried Kinobody Sleep (Kino Sleep) for 30 days - Here are my results
I love sleep. There just really isn’t anything like a good nights sleep. But sadly, most of us don’t get a whole lot of it. And that sucks ass. So I tried a sleep supplement called Kinobody Sleep for 30 days in an attempt to get some better Zees at night.
In one of my previous articles, I tested out ZMA as a sleep supplement and found out that, based on the numbers, it did not appear to have an affect on my sleep quality. So this time around, I decided to try a different supplement. One that is more specifically geared towards sleep! Because I like my sleep.
Enter Kino Body Sleep. Or Kino Sleep
Kinobody Sleep is a supplement created by Greg O’Gallagher, the main man behind the Kinobody Fitness Brand. Kinobody has a pretty large presence on social media so there’s a good chance that you’ve probably heard of it. They focus on building an impressive and aesthetic physique, which is honestly the main reason most people work out. To look good naked.
So what is Kinobody Sleep all about?
Well, its made up of three blends: a sleep induction blend to help you fall asleep, a restoration & recovery blend to help make the most of your sleep, and a stimulant removal blend to help get rid of any caffeine that still might be in your system. Look, I’m not a supplement expert, but it does sound pretty good and they do actually provide links to the research on the Kinobody site. Each tub of Kinosleep costs $39.95 for 30 servings.
All in all, it all sounds pretty solid.
Like in the ZMA experiment, I used the Sleep Cycle app to track my sleep quality and time in bed for 30 days.
Here are the results of my 30-day experiment with Kinobody Sleep.
My average time in bed with Kino Sleep was 7 hours and 46 minutes. My average sleep quality was 82%.
With ZMA, it was 7:30 average time in bed and 77.5% average sleep quality. With nothing, it was 7:07 average time in bed and 75.43 average sleep quality.
As you can see, my sleep quality on Kino sleep was a good amount higher than while I was taking ZMA and not taking a supplement.
You could make the argument that I did get more sleep during my Kinobody Sleep days, but you have to remember that I didn’t exactly go to bed and wake up at the exact same time every day. Could that potentially invalidate the data? Sure. But if I really wanted to control the experiment, I’d also have to control for alcohol and caffeine since those things can also affect sleep quality. And that’s just not realistic unless you’re a friggin’ robot.
So at least I can say that the randomness of it was consistent throughout the entire experiment.
Just like in the last experiment, I also broke down the data into different categories.
Between 7-8 Hours
n = 5, Avg Time In Bed = 7:35, Avg Sleep Quality = 81%
n = 20, Avg Time In Bed = 7:25, Avg Sleep Quality = 77.1%
n = 16, Avg Time In Bed = 7:22, Avg Sleep Quality = 79.875%
Under 7 Hours
n = 13, Avg Time In Bed = 6:49, Avg Sleep Quality = 73.8%
n = 6, Avg Time In Bed = 6:31, Avg Sleep Quality = 67.83%
n = 11, Avg Time In Bed = 6:27, Avg Sleep Quality = 65.18%
Over 8 Hours
n = 12, Avg Time In Bed = 8:26, Avg Sleep Quality = 86.42%
n = 4, Avg Time In Bed = 9:26, Avg Sleep Quality = 94%
n = 3, Avg Time In Bed = 8:12, Avg Sleep Quality = 89.33%
Under 7 Hour Days Eliminated
n = 19, Avg Time In Bed = 7:30, Avg Sleep Quality = 81.37%
n = 24, Avg Time In Bed = 7:45, Avg Sleep Quality = 79.92%
n = 25, Avg Time In Bed = 7:59, Avg Sleep Quality = 83.64%
Kinobody sleep won the majority of the categories with the exception of the over 8-hour category. However, that was balanced out by the compete domination of the under 7-hour category. Granted, both these categories had very inconsistent sample sizes among the test groups so it’s not the most dependable result.
One category that does stand out is the number of days where my sleep quality was 80% or higher. During the month with Kino Sleep, I had 18 days where my sleep quality was over 80%, which is higher than when I took ZMA and nothing. Both of which were just 14 days over 80%.
Overall, I would say that I had a very positive experience with Kinobody Sleep and I do recommend it. Anecdotally, I felt pretty energetic in the mornings and throughout the day, even on the days where I had a lower quality of sleep. I also fell asleep pretty much instantly most nights, which is pretty impressive considering that I drank more caffeine during my Kinobody Sleep month than during the other months. At the end the day, the numbers and data were in the positive and, flawed or not, that’s good enough for me.
I’d give Kinobody Sleep an 8.5 out of 10.
Only reason it’s not higher is because again, it’s extremely hard to know for sure if it was truly Kinobody Sleep that improved my sleep quality and not the bajillion other possible variables. But that’s pretty much the case with all supplements since I’m just one guy. So it’s about as good as it’s going to get. And at $39.95 for 30 servings it does seems a tiny bit on the pricier side but that can easily be mitigated if you buy more than one at a time.
