Sleep Profile (code 1009)

Sleep Profile–Saliva test is a non-invasive saliva test that assesses two major causes for insomnia: imbalances in melatonin and cortisol.  Melatonin is a peptide hormone produced by the pineal gland which helps to control normal sleep patterns. Deficiencies of this hormone can lead to insomnia.  Imbalances in daytime hormone cortisol can also lead to sleep disturbances.
