The Best At-Home Health Kits for Easily Optimising Your Wellbeing

Over the last 18 months, people have placed a stronger than usual emphasise on personal health and wellbeing. According to the Washington Post “sales of fitness gear, gadgets and apparel have skyrocketed during the pandemic” and we’ve seen an “home-workout revolution”.

It’s always been harder, however, to maintain inner-body wellbeing. Now thanks to the convenience of modern technology, there are more accessible ways to find out what’s going on inside the body. At-home health kits allow you to gain insight on your hormones, gut health, genetics, food sensitivities and more, all without having to leave the comfort of your home. Here’s a look at the best at-home health kits to optimise your wellness.
