For Curiosity’s Sake
Have you ever wondered how significant a role the genes play in your physical appearance, your personality, metabolism, and your other traits? You’re not alone. Many people purchase these genetic tests because they’re curious. Genetic testing provides new and enjoyable ways to understand yourself and how you’re connected to those around you.
For Your Health’s Sake
These kits can also provide valuable information about your current health status and motivate you to make lifestyle changes to improve your well-being. For example, if you’ve had unexplained constipation and gas then your personal DNA test might reveal that you are genetically predisposed to lactose intolerance. With this information, you can become more proactive about your health by learning about the condition, removing dairy from your diet, and seeing your doctor.
Please note that simply having an SNP associated with a disease is not a diagnosis. You should always consult your general practitioner before making changes to your lifestyle. They can help you if you are concerned, displaying abnormal symptoms, or you merely want to discuss preventative care.
Just for Fun
More often than not, people purchase these kits for enjoyment. Many even give them as gifts to friends and relatives. A DNA testing kit is a great way to bond with your loved ones and discover what everyone has in common, and more importantly, what makes everyone unique. Your DNA contributions can even help to further research, and our reports offer fun and interesting facts about how your sample compares with others in the Psomagen database and more!
