Is Ancestry right for you?

AncestryDNA is best for people who wish to learn about their geographic origins and possibly uncover long-lost ancestors. 

It’s important to note that AncestryDNA testing is not focused on providing insights on genetic health risks and personalized wellness.

So, if discovering your history isn’t your main goal and you’re more interested in optimizing your health and body, you might want to check out LifeDNA, which can provide a 360-degree perspective of your general health and wellness.
