What You Will Learn from the Ancestral Origins Test

The results of our Ancestral Origins Test will provide the following information:

We will identify how strongly your DNA matches studied populations. Your results will include a map with coloured symbols indicated how strong or weak your association with a certain area is when compared to our database.

Results will show how closely your DNA matches studied anthropological regions. You will be able to see where in the world you have the strongest matches and can estimate the location of your ancestral origins.

It will be possible to tell where you come from by the colours on the high-resolution map we provide with your results. Follow the journeys your ancestor made out of the African continent and to the rest of the world thanks to the colour coded map that we provide. How to interpret the map will be explained in depth in the 10-page colour report that comes with your results.

Your Ancestor’s History Is Written in Your DNA

The legacy of your ancestors is in your DNA. You inherited certain DNA sequences in your genetic makeup from your ancestors – these sequences have been passed down for thousands of years and inherited by you today. These special sequences have been studied and linked to certain parts of the world and specific populations. The laboratory has access to a vast database containing the DNA sequences of most of the world populations that have been discovered and studied. When we analyse your DNA sample, we will run it against the populations in our database to find matches.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
