What we measure

Cortisol (4)   •  Saliva

Cortisol is the primary stress hormone excreted by the adrenal glands. Cortisol moderates the body’s daily and long-term responses to stress. A healthy cortisol level better regulates energy, mood, focus, and immune response.
DHEA   •  Saliva

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is the other major hormone excreted by the adrenal glands. DHEA helps to balance cortisol, especially when cortisol’s level gets too high. DHEA is also a precursor to reproductive hormones like estrogen and testosterone.
