Cortisol is the main stress hormone in the body, which is secreted by the adrenal gland in response to stressful situations.
This hormone interferes with the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, wreaking havoc if chronically elevated.
If you want to determine how much cortisol is circulating in your bloodstream, order our service, and with a simple saliva swab, you’ll 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.
