Stress affects your cortisol levels, which can lead to many negative consequences in the body.
Chronic stress has been shown to contribute to accelerated aging and premature death in medical studies.
Saliva hormone testing can help make sense of your symptoms
Consequences of Elevated Cortisol:
- Weight gain
- Low energy
- Night sweats
- Memory issues
- Binge eating
- Increased blood pressure
- Increased cholesterol
- Increased triglycerides
- Increased blood sugar
- Increased risk of osteoporosis
- Increased inflammation in the body
- Negative impact on the immune system
Test your cortisol levels.
Why saliva testing? Blood testing would require a visit to a lab 4x/day to get cortisol levels measured. With convenient saliva testing, you can test your cortisol levels at home, 4x in one day with a simple saliva test kit! Results are analyzed by medical professionals, with suggestions provided to get you on the right track.
Saliva testing measures the
hormones that are bioavailable at the
tissue sites, available for absorption so
they can create a hormonal response.
Blood (serum) testing only measures
the total level of a specific hormone in
the bloodstream, not the bioavailable
level. This makes a difference!
Test your hormone levels with a simple at-home saliva test kit!
