My kit was sent to me quite quickly and incluefed easy to follow instruction. Once my dna was packaged up and sent off it took about 6 weeks to get my results....and boy were they shocking!
Pretty cool analysis - some of what I already know and a bunch of what I didn't! Easy and painless to perform (just spit in a tube) and about 6 weeks later I had my analysis emailed to me.
I really enjoyed 23andme and even went back and got a kit for my brother. I'm bummed that it takes about 6-8 weeks for processing, but that probably just means that they're doing it right!
Totally worth the money. I was incredibly happy with the amount of information provided. They frequently update their research and update your information. I would recommend this to anyone, even if they think they have a good idea of their genetics.
I bought this for my parents and absolutely loved it! My mom got her results first and pretty quick. My dads results were shocking (in a great way)! His results took a bit longer. I have better knowledge about my ancestry and can't wait to do more research!
I haven't received my results yet but, so far have been able to read my mother and grandparents results. I love how everything is broken down and I can see in detail my family's history
This service is amazing! My parents are adopted so I wanted to know some more about my history and genetic health. They provided me with great answers and I'm excited to keep learning more.
This was pretty cool! I really liked learning about all of the health stuff! The genealogy was pretty cool, too. But I was a little jealous because mine wasn't surprising at all. Haha!
Told me so much about myself from just a cup of saliva. I recommend it as they tell health indicators that you may be carrying. You'll be amazed at all the features that are available.
I could get lost in all of the data I was provided after sending off my DNA to be analyzed. The process is seamless - you spit in a tube and mail it off. Kind of gross but painless nonetheless! I received my full analysis within 4 weeks. Learning more about my heritage was interesting, but what I really love are all of the quirky details you find out are genetic. I hate cilantro - 23andme pointed out that I have a gene that makes it tastes like soap. So many golden nuggets of info and opportunities to connect with others who share your DNA. Go do it! It makes a unique gift!
