Our self-test to identify your stress level serves as a key tool for determining your level of stress and therefore provides an excellent basis for optimizing your personal well-being. This test will not only help you find out how your body reacts under different conditions, but also when you should take steps to reduce stress.

Easy to use for quick results: Our test is designed to give you a comprehensive picture of your stress levels with a simple cheek swab that you can do yourself at home. This process is uncomplicated and completely painless. Then send your sample to our laboratory, where it will be analyzed using state-of-the-art technology.

Science-based analysis: We use advanced LC-MS/MS technology to measure cortisol and cortisone levels in your saliva. This allows for extremely accurate determination of your hormonal stress markers. The results will be provided to you within five working days, so you can get clarity about your stress levels without a long wait.

How does my daily stress affect my general well-being and health?

Our self-test offers the answer to this far-reaching question. By analyzing your cortisol and cortisone levels, you can get an accurate picture of your stress levels . This enables you to take targeted measures to reduce stress and thus sustainably improve your well-being and health. The test gives you the information you need to identify stressors in your life and deal with stress more consciously. Learn how to understand and control your stress responses to live a more balanced and healthy life.

Understand the chemistry of stress - insight into your body's hormonal stress regulation.

What is the stress level?

The body's stress response is controlled by the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. This consists of a network of hormones and organs that are activated when stressed. The hypothalamus, part of the brain, regulates vital body functions and triggers the release of CRH (corticotropin-releasing hormone) when stressed. This stimulates the pituitary gland to produce ACTH (adrenocorticotropin), which stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol . Cortisol controls not only the stress response , but also sugar and mineral metabolism. The immediate response to stress releases dopamine, adrenaline and norepinephrine, which increases heart rate, blood pressure and energy supply to the muscles. The concentration of these substances is regulated by cortisol, which serves as an indicator of stress . Since cortisol can be measured in saliva, an analysis of cortisol and cortisone in saliva can provide information about stress levels.

Your body alarm in case of stress - vital for the reaction, critical in case of overload.

Cortisol

Cortisol, often referred to as the stress hormone , is released when we are under stress and improves our ability to function by providing energy and stimulating the cardiovascular system and certain brain regions. It also has anti-inflammatory effects and influences blood pressure and energy metabolism. However, excess stress can lead to persistently high cortisol levels , which can weaken the immune system and cause health problems. Cortisol levels follow a daily rhythm, with peaks in the morning and drops at night. Measuring cortisol can provide information about various diseases and serves as an important stress indicator .

  • Symptoms of excess cortisol:

    • Increased blood sugar and blood fat levels
    • High blood pressure
    • sleep disorders
    • Connective tissue weakness
    • Weight gain, especially with an increase in belly fat
    • Fat redistribution with full moon face and bull neck
    • osteoporosis
    • Loss of muscle mass
    • depression
    • Memory difficulties
    • Diabetes mellitus
    • Wound healing disorders
    • increased susceptibility to infections
  • Symptoms of cortisol deficiency:

    • Low blood pressure
    • Dizziness, feeling weak
    • permanent fatigue
    • Loss of appetite
    • weight loss
    • Nausea, vomiting
    • depressed mood, irritability

How is the evaluation carried out?

Our test kit contains everything you need to carry out a painless and simple self-test. The sample is taken using a small suction roller that must be placed in the mouth for a short time. Since the stress hormone level in saliva can fluctuate, samples are taken twice on different days. In this way, an average value can be formed and the accuracy of the result can be maximized. The samples are then sent back to our certified laboratory in the envelope provided. There they are analyzed using LC-MS/MS, an advanced technique known for its precision in medical diagnostics. Liquid chromatography separates the components of your samples, while mass spectrometry determines the structure and concentration of the molecules. This sensitive analysis allows us to identify even the smallest substance concentrations in saliva, which are ten times lower than in blood. You will receive your individual result within five days of sending in the samples.

Limits of the investigation:

Our tests simply define your existing genetic conditions. All of our human genetic tests only serve to clarify existing suspected cases. No predictive tests are carried out.
