Adrenal Stress Hormone Profile with C.A.R.


SKU: 0502 Category: Tag:


The Adrenocortex Stress Profile (ASP) provides an assessment of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis using carefully timed salivary samples of the hormones cortisol and DHEA. Salivary testing is an easy, non-invasive option to measure unbound, biologically active parent hormone levels. The report offers an easy-to-interpret graphic which plots the results of the Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) and the natural diurnal rhythm.  Research shows that the size of this increase in AM cortisol correlates with HPA-axis function, even if the sample measurements are all within range.
