If you haven't yet got your hands on a DNA kit, now is your chance to score an amazing deal on one. Helix DNA kits are being sold at up to 45% off. Originally priced at $80, these kits are now on sale for $44.99. When you consider all that these kits can do, that's a serious bargain.

With this kit, users can learn about their lineage and about factors that can affect their health and wellness. The results will include insights into your continental ancestry, malaria adaptation, altitude adaptation, cold adaptation and diet adaptation. You can also discover how lifestyle, fitness and nutrition intersect with your genetics. For instance, you can check on how your genetics influence things like calcium levels, coffee consumption and your body mass index. That way, you'll have a better idea of which parts of your lifestyle can more easily be modified and which are more driven by your genes.

Getting your results is simple. All you do is send a small saliva sample back to the Helix lab in a prepaid shipping box. Once your results process, it's time to start exploring your ancient roots.

These deals aren't limited to the Helix DNA kit. You can also shop the Geno 2.0 DNA kit from National Geographic ($69.99, originally $99.99; helix.com) and the Mayo Clinic GeneGuide ($159.99, originally $199.99; helix.com) for an at-home DNA test that also helps users understand how DNA affects health.

When you shop this flash sale, you can also save on a whole slew of other DNA-driven tests. For instance, in the Gifts Under $50 section of the sale, you'll find the Vinome Wine Explorer ($35.99, originally $59.99; helix.com), which provides wine recommendations tailored to taste preferences and DNA data. Then, there's the Insitome Regional Ancestry kit ($44.99, originally $59.99; helix.com), which informs users about their ancestral origins based on region. Another favorite is the Fitness Buddy: All-Access Premium kit from Azumio ($64.99, originally $99.99; helix.com), which helps users find the most effective exercises and workouts based on their DNA.

The sale ends on Thursday. After that, the kits will be marked back up to their original prices. Shop now to save big on a kit that will give you some super insights about yourself.
