The Sleep Hormone Saliva Test
The Sleep hormone test is a non-invasive saliva test that assesses two major causes for insomnia and sleeping disorders, these include imbalances in melatonin and cortisol.
Melatonin is a peptide hormone produced by the pineal gland which helps to control normal sleep patterns. Deficiencies of melatonin can lead to insomnia; however melatonin supplementation can effectively treat this problem if diagnosed correctly. Imbalances in the hormone cortisol can also lead to sleep disturbances which is also covered in this test.
