The details

23andMe is a personal genetic testing kit that can help give you a more complete picture of your health, thanks to insights from your genetic data.

The kit's personalized health reports use science-backed data to show how your DNA can affect your likelihood of developing certain health conditions and wellness traits. While the results do not serve as a medical diagnosis, they can show potential predispositions to diabetes, cystic fibrosis, celiac disease, muscle composition, genetic weight predisposition and more.

The home-based test requires no blood or in-person visits, just a simple saliva sample delivered via mail. In addition to health reports, 23andMe includes ancestry insights and can help you find and connect with relatives in the 23andMe database.

Note: There is a lengthy legal disclaimer from 23andMe regarding the type of information you receive in your results. The results are not intended to serve as a diagnosis, nor should they be used to make medical decisions, including which medications to take or treatments to follow. The reports are also not "intended to tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease in the future, the health of your fetus, or your newborn child's risk of developing a particular disease later in life."

4.6 stars | 2,100+ reviews

The "Amazon's Choice" 23andMe kit has earned an average rating of 4.6 stars based on more than 2,100 reviews.

According to one shopper, the kit provides a "valuable health history" and other "fun curiosities to know." The user notes that in addition to being "fun," 23andMe "keeps adding reports to the app" in the years following your test, making the purchase that much more valuable.

'Perfect gift'

Another shopper says the genetic testing kit makes a "perfect gift" for friends and family, especially those who are notoriously "impossible to shop for." It's "easy to use" but is such a "meaningful gift," they write.

It's "really incredible, I almost cried," says a third user. It's been "amazing" to get to "know a part of myself" that "I had no idea" existed, they say.

Despite its many positive reviews, some users caution it can take up to two months to receive your results.

According to one shopper, it takes a "fair bit of time to get your results," but it's "worth the wait."

Verdict

Whether you're looking for a unique gift idea for the upcoming holiday season or want a broader picture of your health and wellness, 23andMe's Ancestry + Traits Service is worth checking out — especially at its current sale price.

However, before you head to checkout, you'll want to read 23andMe's legal disclaimer and keep in mind that it might take a few weeks/months to receive your results.
