This hormone interferes with the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, and can wreak havoc if chronically elevated.

If you want to find out how much cortisol is circulating in your bloodstream, order our testing service, and with a simple saliva swab, you will get a detailed report.

Despite how fascinating the brain is, it has some limitations, including its inability to distinguish between physical and psychological stress.

As a result, if you are living in stressful conditions, your body will respond as if you’re being attacked by a bear.

By secreting catecholamines (e.g. epinephrine, norepinephrine) and cortisol, several physiological functions will get altered to put the body in the “fight or flight” mode.

Unfortunately, the chronic elevation of these chemicals wreaks havoc on the body by disrupting metabolism and interfering with normal blood vessel contraction.

getTested’s cortisol check will let you know if your hormonal balance is correct or not, as well as the measures you need to apply to reduce stress.

A testing kit will be sent to desired address after purchase of this test. The test includes instructions and prepaid envelope for direct delivery to our ISO certified Testing Facility (lab) located in Germany. If you have any questions before or after placing your order, we are happy to answer any questions during opening hours.

You do the test at home by collecting a sample of your saliva. You collect the saliva before going to bed on a Sunday evening. This is important since the test needs to be send to our lab on a Monday.

Your test is sent to our lab for analysis, and you will receive the results digitally as soon as the analysis is done. Allow 30 minutes to pass after brushing your teeth, before doing the test. If you’re bleeding from your gums, we recommend waiting, as this can interfere with the analysis. Also avoid drinking, eating, smoking and chewing gum 30 minutes before the test.
