5 Ancestry and Health DNA Kits That Are Heavily Discounted Right Now—Up to Half-Off
Many of us may have a general idea of where we come from, and no, we don't just mean hometowns. Personal ancestry reaches back thousands of years, and it's a lot more complicated than, for example, being Irish on your mother's side of the family. There's a lot of ethnic and familial history that had to happen for you to be you, and with Amazon's Cyber Monday deals knocking up to 50% off DNA kits, why not take the chance to learn about it now?
Ancestry services are a great way to find out about your origins and even reconnect with living relatives you might have never known otherwise. That said, there are plenty of options on the market with different specialties depending on what you want out of the experience. Services like AncestryDNA are a highly rated resource for learning personal histories beyond the numbers—and the brand's genetic ethnicity test is currently 51% off. Simply mail your saliva sample to a lab in a prepaid package, and AncestryDNA will map family trees and put names to faces to expand your familial knowledge. Then there's 23andMe's Health + Ancestry package that's on sale for $100 off. It uses your DNA sample to track potential hereditary diseases, health predispositions, and more. This information can help you make informed lifestyle choices for the future and give you a richer sense of personal history.
If learning more about your lineage sounds appealing to you, odds are it'll make a great holiday present for someone you love (bonus points if they're a blood relative). Regardless of who the sample comes from, there will be plenty of valuable information to share with your family.
