Happy DNA Day! April 25 is a day to recognize deoxyribonucleic acid - better known as the molecule that holds the code to our entire genetic makeup. What better way to celebrate than with a complete ancestry test that's about more than just satisfying idle curiosity about your family tree? The lab techs at Vitagene use DNA to tell you about your lineage, but they also use that data to tailor a complete wellness plan that's specific to your body.
When you get a Vitagene DNA kit, take a simple cheek swab and return it in one of their included vials. After a thorough analysis, you'll get back the most detailed ancestry report you could hope for - not to mention the most practical. With the Vitagene DNA Ancestry Test Kit & Personalized Health Plan, you'll understand your ancestry visually with a map that breaks down ethnic and regional percentages. You'll also get a complete health plan that tells you what food choices are the best for your body, and any gluten sensitivity you're likely to have. Vitagene will tell you the type and frequency of workouts that are best for you and suggest supplements to enhance your regimen.
For a small upgrade, the Vitagene Premium Health DNA Kit gives you all that info plus your genetic risk for certain skin conditions, and updates to your profile as new genetic research affects it.
Both kits are on sale, with the Vitagene DNA Ancestry Test Kit 20% off at $79 and the Vitagene Premium Health DNA Kit priced 28% off at $99. But for DNA Day, you can take an additional 15% off either set with the code DNADAY15.
