How Wellness Relates to Genetics

Wellness is an essential part of your life. 23andMe’s Wellness Reports uncover genetic connections to certain traits and conditions that may impact your quality of life. This portrait of your DNA includes reports on topics such as caffeine consumption, genetic weight, lactose intolerance, sleep movement, muscle composition, and more. 

Learning about these genetic factors can help you better understand (and possibly make more informed decisions about) your diet, exercise, and sleep behavior. Remember that non-genetic factors, including environment and lifestyle, also have an impact on your wellness. But knowing about your genetic likelihood can serve as a positive influence in making healthy decisions throughout your life.
