Saliva hormone testing can help make sense of your symptoms

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.

Test your hormone levels with a simple at-home saliva test kit!
