The Hormone Harmony saliva hormone test is designed to assess five main hormones in both men and women. The test measures the levels of the following hormones:

  • Estrone Hormone (E1): This hormone is one of the three primary forms of estrogen. It is produced primarily in the ovaries, as well as in smaller amounts by the adrenal glands and fat tissues. Estrone plays a role in regulating the menstrual cycle and is involved in various aspects of reproductive health.
  • Estradiol Hormone (E2): Estradiol is the most potent form of estrogen and is primarily produced in the ovaries. It is responsible for the development and maintenance of female reproductive organs and secondary sexual characteristics. Estradiol levels fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle and are also important for bone health, cardiovascular health, and cognitive function.
  • Estriol Hormone (E3): Estriol is the weakest form of estrogen and is produced primarily during pregnancy by the placenta. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of the uterus and supporting fetal development.
  • Progesterone Hormone (Pg): Progesterone is a hormone that plays a vital role in the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. It is mainly produced by the ovaries after ovulation and helps prepare the uterus for implantation and support early pregnancy. Progesterone levels rise during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and decline if pregnancy does not occur.
  • Cortisol Hormone (C): Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It is involved in the body's response to stress, helps regulate blood sugar levels, supports the immune system, and plays a role in metabolism. Cortisol levels naturally fluctuate throughout the day, with higher levels in the morning and lower levels in the evening.

Hormone Tested:

The Hormone Harmony saliva hormone test provides valuable information about the levels of cortisol, estrogen, and progesterone in the body. Here's why understanding these hormone levels can be beneficial:

Cortisol:

Cortisol is an indicator of adrenal function and exposure to stressors. It follows a diurnal variation, with the highest levels in the morning and lower levels in the evening. Normal cortisol production is essential for a healthy stress response. Low cortisol levels can indicate adrenal fatigue, which may lead to issues such as poor blood sugar regulation and immune system dysfunction. Conversely, chronically high cortisol levels, resulting from constant exposure to stressors, can have negative implications for long-term health, including an increased risk of cancer, osteoporosis, and potentially Alzheimer's disease.

Estrogen:

Estrogen is a vital hormone for sexual and reproductive function. It acts as an antioxidant and neuroprotective agent, and it is closely associated with bone growth. However, imbalances in estrogen levels can have negative consequences. High levels of estrogen are suspected to play a significant role in breast and uterine endometrial lining cancer. By monitoring estrogen levels, you can identify and address potential issues such as menstrual cycle disorders and severe menopausal symptoms.

Progesterone:

Progesterone is a steroid hormone involved in regulating the menstrual cycle and plays a crucial role during pregnancy. Imbalances in progesterone can occur due to menopause, certain illnesses, hormonal contraceptives, and other factors. Monitoring progesterone levels can help identify hormonal imbalances and guide appropriate interventions, ensuring optimal menstrual cycle regulation and management of menopausal symptoms.

By understanding your hormone levels through the Hormone Harmony test, you can gain insights into potential imbalances and take appropriate steps to address them, potentially improving your overall well-being and reproductive health.
