More: The latest analytical technologies in hormone-detection assays are used in the laboratory to yield highly precise and sensitive test results. This means that very low levels of hormones can be detected with an accurate read-out of hormone concentration. As such one saliva sample can be portioned across multiple hormone tests allowing for combined testing and providing a more comprehensive hormone profile that is provided in a single report.

Allow at least one full cycle prior to using your kit, with proper consideration of the consequences.
It is not usually necessary to stop taking your supplements. However, sustained daily high dose Vitamin B12 has been known to affect melatonin levels. If you wish to obtain a clear melatonin result, it is suggested ceasing use of B12 one week prior to testing. If B12 has been prescribed, please consult your GP.
