It’s been about 3 years since Living DNA entered the genealogy DNA testing world. Their test has always been unique in that they offered the most detailed breakdown of geographic origins available, having the ability to break down your ancestry to 80 regions worldwide (three times the detail of other tests), and even breaking down British ancestry to 21 regions.

Now we have more big news from Living DNA, and that is that they now have FOUR different DNA test kits available, and with that have just launched their way into DNA health area.

The press release states that “Living DNA has also overhauled its customer results platform and introduced a new Wellbeing Kit experience for users, aiming to cut down 80% of illness and disease that is lifestyle-related. Unlike other firms that focus on health conditions, Living DNA is first exploring areas of your life influenced by your DNA where a customer can make changes which can lead to a greater quality of life.”

David Nicholson, co-founder advises “Before we launched Living DNA, we always felt and understood that the power DNA offers people an opportunity to enjoy a greater quality in their lives. This comes not only from enriching relationships with your family but also understanding the way your body responds to different diets and exercises. By looking at the whole picture, it’s possible to move from the era of post cause treatment to true preventative medicine.”
