The Sex Hormone Balance Test measures all elements of your hormonal balance, which affects libido, fat loss, mood, sports performance and much more.
Sex hormone balance is equally important for men and women, but unfortunately, hormone imbalances become much more common as you age (although imbalances can occur even earlier, especially in athletes and exercise enthusiasts). Hormone imbalances usually occur as a result of dietary choices, environmental toxins, inactivity, and lifestyle factors.
Your balance of sex hormones can have an enormous impact on your body composition, bone density, energy levels, mood, and libido. For example, your cortisol levels affect the body’s ability to produce many of these hormones, and the ratio of testosterone to cortisol is a sign of how anabolic or catabolic the body is.
Panels included in the Sex Hormone Balance package include:
- Total Testosterne
- Free Testosterone
- Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)
The process of testing is very easy. After you order, you’ll be given complete instructions to print your test instructions and simply bring to a lab and hand to a lab technician – along with easy-to-understand directions to find a lab in your area to have your test easily performed. Within just a few days, you’ll get the results sent to you, along with easy instructions for interpretation!
