Hormones, Stress & Sleep Test
Hormones, Stress & Sleep Test
This test assesses your hormones, stress and sleep. Hormones play a key role in an individual’s overall health and wellness. No matter our age and regardless of gender, the impact caused by stress can be seen in imbalances, both of our sex hormones and key biomarkers of our immune system. Hormones that are well balanced contribute to overall wellness and good health.
- Easy to use: At home test
- Collection Method: Saliva
- Measures:Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA-S, Cortisolx4, Melatonin
Estrogens are the primary female sex hormones. They play important roles in stimulating growth of the reproductive tissues, maintaining healthy bones, increasing the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain and helping to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. During menopause estrone is the predominant circulating estrogen and during pregnancy it is estriol.
Estrogen is considered to be the female hormone, whereas testosterone is considered the male hormone. However, both hormones are present in both sexes. In males, estrogen is present in low concentrations in blood, but can be extraordinarily high in semen. As men age, the production of androgens from the adrenals and gonads is decreased.
Progesterone is produced in the ovaries and is important for normal reproductive and menstrual function, especially during the latter half (luteal phase) of the menstrual cycle. It plays a role in the health of the heart, skin, bone, blood vessels and other body tissues. It is also important in breast development, maintaining pregnancy and the control of neurotransmitters in the brain. Although Progesterone is found in both females and males, its role in male physiology is not well understood.
TESTOSTERONE + DHEATestosterone is considered the “male hormone”. In men it is produced by the testes and in much smaller amounts by the ovaries in women. It is responsible for many of the secondary sex characteristics seen in men, in addition to contributing to a healthy libido, regulation of the immune system, maintaining optimal memory, building muscle mass, and maintaining energy levels. Chronically low testosterone, in both sexes, may cause fatigue or decreased energy as well as reduced sex drive or desire (libido). In addition, it may cause reduced stamina and the loss of bone and/or muscle mass
DHEA, a testosterone precursor, is the most abundant circulating steroid hormone. DHEA is produced predominately by the adrenal glands, the gonads, and the brain, where it functions predominantly as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the androgen and estrogen sex steroids.
Cortisol levels typically follow a curve: They are at their highest in the morning and decline as the day continues. They may fluctuate high or low at any of the four measurement times throughout the day due to acute or chronic stress. Sustained high or low levels are often found in individuals with an imbalance in adrenal function.
Melatonin is a hormone produced during the dark phase of the day by the pineal gland, a small endocrine gland in the brain that regulates the sleep-wake cycle (ie: Circadian rhythm).It also is observed in high numbers in the gut where its local effects are involved in a myriad of actions, including metabolism, immune function, gut function, inflammation, mitochondrial function, free radical scavenging, and direct anti-oxidant activity. All these melatonin functions interact thereby balancing circadian rhythms, which can help ensure proper sleep patters, decrease oxidative stress and limit increases in reactive oxygen and nitrogen species.
