Why saliva instead of blood?
Hormones in our blood are bound to something called “carrier proteins”. Our hormones are not actually utilized until they reach their destination glands and receptor sites in the cells.
What we’re looking for instead is actual “bioavailability” as this is the superior way to discover excesses and deficiencies. We can get this from saliva since the saliva “glands” are a part of the endocrine or “glandular” system.
From this viewpoint, blood simply does not show proper bioavailability and therefore isn’t the best way to assess proper hormone levels. The result of using blood may result in overlooking issues and not properly diagnosing hormone imbalances.
Blood tests will typically show an overall lower hormone profile. When evaluating “excess androgens” a blood test may show it in range where as the saliva shows 2-3x higher, therefore properly reporting the overproduction where it would have been completely missed on the client who used a blood test.
This leaves the client very confused when they have many of the symptoms of excess androgens yet the blood tests show “in range”.
✔ You can rest assure that saliva tests your bio-availability and you can get an accurate reading from this specialty saliva test.
