23andMe is a personal genetic testing kit that can help give you a more complete picture of your health, thanks to insights from your genetic data.

The kit's personalized health reports use science-backed data to show how your DNA can affect your likelihood of developing certain health conditions and wellness traits. While the results do not serve as a medical diagnosis, they can show potential predispositions to diabetes, cystic fibrosis, celiac disease, muscle composition, genetic weight predisposition and more.

The home-based test requires no blood or in-person visits, just a simple saliva sample delivered via mail. In addition to health reports, 23andMe includes ancestry insights and can help you find and connect with relatives in the 23andMe database.

Note: There is a lengthy legal disclaimer from 23andMe regarding the type of information you receive in your results. The results are not intended to serve as a diagnosis, nor should they be used to make medical decisions, including which medications to take or treatments to follow. The reports are also not "intended to tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease in the future, the health of your fetus, or your newborn child's risk of developing a particular disease later in life."

The DNA test is "accurate, thorough and easy to use," said another shopper.

A third user described 23andMe as "exceedingly easy to use" and said the results were "truly amazing." It gives information on "what makes you, you."

Despite largely positive reviews, one shopper likened the kit to "a bit like reading your horoscope."

Some of the information you receive seems to be "making a mountain out of a molehill," they wrote. There's a lot of "you may, you might or 'likely to.'" It's "ambiguous enough" that it "could apply to most anyone."

Amazon shoppers say the 23andMe Health + Ancestry Kit provides "amazing genealogical insight" and is a "great tool" for learning more about yourself. If you're shopping for a Mother's Day gift or want to learn more about "what makes you, you," the health report is a great idea.

However, some shoppers noted its results can be vague, something to keep in mind when heading to checkout.
