Sample Collection: 2 sample collections at both 12PM and 6AM. Detailed instructions supplied.
Results: Brief individual assessment included. Results in coloured graph form.
Short Overview: When functioning correctly, our pineal glands release melatonin into the bloodstream at night time causing drowsiness. When not functioning correctly, sleep may be disrupted or sporadic. This can be a result of many possible factors including long term sleep disruption due to work, lifestyle or health. Melatonin also regulates pathways central to the immune response while abnormal melatonin secretion alters the immune function.
Why use this test? Test results will indicate if your melatonin production is in sync with the day night cycle known as the Circadian Rhythm or rather a Free Running State. Abnormal results may trigger further investigation and possible treatment.
Fasting Required: Yes – 1 hour.
