23andMe was a really great gift that I received. I got to find out more about my history and slowly I have been able to get more health information. It provides some context for a lot of features and is just generally fun. I would highly recommend.
I loved it! I found out things not even I knew about my family. It was expensive, but it was worth it! There was only one thing I didn't like about it. You couldn't eat or drink anything for thirty minutes. I would definitely tell my friends about it!
How cool to learn all about your health and ancestry. I learned a lot of new things about where my family came from. A little expensive but it was gifted to me. I would recommend this product to others but a better warning about amount of spit needed for testing.
I just ordered my kit after months of trying to decide which one to do. I did a lot of research and 23 and me always turned up on top. My friend did the kit and loved her results. There was a $29 coupon so I jumped on it. Can't wait to get results back
I plan on getting the gift of ancestry for two very special people in my life. My own tests are currently pending. I have appreciated the customer service with the company. I would recommend to others during the holiday season while they’re on sale.
I loved this! It was so interesting to see back to my family's history and chart where my DNA comes from. My only request is that my dad would do it so I can see what parts of my DNA come from which parent - maybe a birthday gift for the future!
Read the fine print. They can use your DNA for whatever they want. Cloning, trials, etc. they own full rights once you send that sample in. It's neat.. but to me that's a little scary. It's cool to learn as much as you can about yourself though.
Pricey? Yes. Worth it? 100%. I could see this being a very useful tool for those who want to know more about where they came from and any potential genetic disorders they may carry.
I found that I didn't like the way this company is set up at all. Nobody responds to messages and it isn't very user friendly. If I had to purchase from them again, I would get the DNA only kit and skip the medical background info next time.
Insightful. We did testing to help us understand our family's mental health and behavioral issues. The information from the test showed various problems with our methylation. The vitamins and things we've tried as a result have been very helpful.
Q & A
Is really worth the money ?
Is there anyway I could get this for free and review it? I have heard nothing but good things!
Always wanted to try one of these similar products....worth it?
Has anyone tried their DNA tests? How does it compare to AncestryDNA? Do you get the ancestry analysis along with the breakdown of genetic predispositions (more likely to need more sleep, have curly hair, like coffee, be good at running, etc) or is it one or the other?
What are your personal experiences?
