What we measure
Melatonin (4) • Urine
Your melatonin level directly impacts your sleep cycle because it helps to induce sleep and to increase sleep duration.
Cortisol (4) • Urine
Your cortisol level follows a cycle that is opposite of melatonin's and, in this role, it is responsible for signaling your body to be awake and responsive.
Sleep is a complex health concern and can be impacted by several factors. While this test is an important tool that gives you personalized insight into key hormones that impact sleep, there may also be other factors that are contributing to sleep problems. Therefore, we always encourage you to consult a health-care practitioner if you suspect a problem or concern with your sleeping habits.
