Cortisol is a steroid hormone that is released by the adrenal gland in response to stress or low blood glucose. It is responsible for controlling the body’s blood sugar levels, regulating metabolism, acting as an anti-inflammatory, influencing memory formation, controlling salt and water balance, influencing blood pressure and helping the development of a fetus in pregnant women.
Lab Me doesn’t use traditional dry blood spot cards like our competitors. We use a patented blood collection system that is FDA approved. It separates blood from plasma allowing us to have low variability and virtually identical results to arm drawn blood.
Regular testing of biomarkers can act as an early detection system. Especially if you’re not getting enough sleep, have improper nutrition, substandard training, unwise lifestyle choices or weak bone health. Lab Me helps by detecting non-optimal levels of blood biomarkers . For example high levels of cortisol which is an indicator of stress.
We use lab’s that are the same labs used by hospitals, major corporations, medical clinics and private doctors. They are CAP and CLIA certified and undergo regular audits and daily calibrations.
