  1. Stress hormone ratio

    Stress hormone ratio

    DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is sometimes dubbed the anti-aging hormone. It is an anabolic compound that can buffer the negative effects of cortisol on several bodily functions and illnesses and can protect against burnout, Alzheimer's, and migraine. DHEA-s (Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) is the sulfated form of DHEA, which represents close to ninety-eight percent of the total circulating DHEA in our body. DHEA-s also shows less of an inter-individual variance (both from one day to another, or different times of the day), and is not easily affected by stressors, making testing of DHEA-s more suitable than DHEA as a health biomarker. Correspondingly, the ratio of DHEA-s over Cortisol often has a stronger effect size on illness than either of the two hormones alone. To obtain saliva for this test, you provide one sample only. Your results will present a reference range as well as an overview of the importance of Cortisol/DHEA-s for health markers.
  2. Individual Cortisol test
    CHF59.00
    This test measures the bioavailable component of total cortisol through a saliva sample. Cortisol is known as the stress hormone. When we are confronted with a threat, cortisol targets the central nervous system, the metabolic system, the immune system and the cardiovascular system, with the aim of releasing energy to allow us to deal with the stressor and not waste precious resources elsewhere.
  3. Individual testosterone test
    CHF79.00
    This test measures the free (protein unbound) component of total testosterone through a single saliva sample. Testosterone is a male sex hormone, which is used to evaluate the androgynous state of men and to diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome and breast cancer in women. It is responsible for bone and muscle strength, as well as mood, energy, and sexual function. It also has an influence on muscle mass, physical strength and bone density. Persometrics does not offer advice or medical diagnostics. Rather, the outcome of this test could be useful for you to discuss further with your medical doctor. Note: We aim to ship your testkit within one working day. However, since the bioavailable component of Testosterone is requires a complex method to analyze correctly, saliva samples are forwarded to a larger laboratory for analysis (the Risch laboratory of Bern). For this reason, please allow for an 8 working days delay before achieving your results (after our laboratory receives your samples). We apologize for this long waiting time, but our main priority is product quality and scientific excellence.
