Saliva Hormone Upgrade DHEA
What We Test and What It Tells You
This profile assesses your levels of DHEA.
DHEA: Predominately produced in the adrenal gland, DHEA is a direct precursor in the production of testosterone. Optimal levels of DHEA are therefore critical to insure adequate testosterone production. DHEA levels decline with age and physical and mental stress.
For a more complete assessment it, it is highly recommended that you also include the important male hormones estradiol, DHEA and cortisol in order to assess your T:E and T:C ratios. The cost is only $25 each or 3 for $69.
Your Strength and Recovery Ratio: The Testosterone/Cortisol Ratio

Whether you consider yourself a physical, mental, or sexual athlete, it will be difficult if not impossible to reach peak performance without a positive testosterone (anabolic) to cortisol (catabolic) ratio.
