Amazon has slashed the price of DNA test kits for Prime Day, but you'll need to move fast to grab one, as the deals are due to end soon.

All these tests work in the same way: you send off a sample of saliva or a cheek swab in the post, and a few weeks later you'll receive a link to an online dashboard where you can see a whole host of information about yourself. Depending on the kit you've chosen, that might include where your ancestors come from, distant relatives who've also taken the test, health conditions you're susceptible to, and even physical traits you're likely to have.

23andMe is one of the biggest names in home DNA testing, and for good reason: its tests are simple to use, its privacy policies are robust, and its results are detailed and easy to interpret. The Health and Ancestry Service covers both genealogy (showing where your ancestors hail from geographically, plus DNA relatives) and health (which includes predisposition to certain medical conditions).

There are other DNA test kits available on Amazon, but all of the ones above have been tested by us and rated highly, so we're confident you'll be pleased with the results - and hopefully learn a lot about yourself, too.
