Finding out if you’re genetically predisposed to over-caffeinating yourself is cool and all, but let’s be real—health and ancestry reports can get a little pricey. That’s why we’re celebrating the fact that top genetic testing service 23andMe is $100 off for Amazon Prime Day, which runs July 12 and 13. (Get more info on the sale, including how to sign up for Prime Day if you're not already a Prime member here.)
A 23andMe kit with health and ancestry profiles will usually set you back $199. But as a Prime Day special offer, the DNA kit is available on Amazon for $99.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the informational magic of 23andMe, it’s a simple way to gain insight into your heritage and health predispositions, carrier statuses (these may indicate inherited conditions), overall wellness and quirky traits.
Like what, you may wonder? Well, in addition to learning where your ancestors came from (even way, way back in the day), a 23andMe test can reveal if you’re genetically likely to enjoy chocolate, move a lot in your sleep or have a fear of heights. In addition to those fun little bits of intel, 23andMe can also determine if your genes have variants associated with a higher risk for developing health issues, such as age-related macular degeneration, blood clots and a whole host of other ailments.
