Delivery Options


  • Find out if cortisol may be responsible if your stress levels are too high
  • Discover why you often feel under the weather
  • Learn why you find it hard to “switch off” at the end of the day

A laboratory saliva test with simple at-home collection which measures the levels of the stress hormone cortisol at certain times throughout the day.

Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands which affects metabolism and immune system and regulates blood pressure. It is naturally high in the morning and declines over the day. Cortisol also rises when the body is under stress and this can disrupt our normal rhythm, making it hard to get to sleep at night.
