Adrenal Stress Index

The adrenal glands are two tiny organs that reside just above the kidneys. Each one weighs about as much as a walnut, but they have a key role in regulating the body's metabolism.

Each adrenal gland has two functional zones that have unique jobs in the body. The outer cortex secretes adrenal steroids (Cortisol, DHEA, and Aldosterone). The inner medulla secretes adrenaline and noradrenaline. Cortisol, DHEA, and adrenaline are the three main adrenal stress hormones.

Abnormal adrenal rhythm can influence:

  • Energy Production
  • Bone Health
  • Immune System Health
  • Sleep Quality
  • Skin Regeneration
  • Thyroid Function
  • Muscle and Joint Function

Do You Need the Adrenal Stress Index (ASI) Test?

The ASI test is mostly ordered for individuals that suffer from:

  • Chronic stress and related health problems
  • Lack of vitality and energy
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Poor memory
  • Alcohol intolerance
  • Stress maladaptation
  • Low sex drive
  • Low body temperature

Advantages of the ASI:

  • The test is non-invasive and can be performed wherever you are.
  • Saliva is collected under real life conditions. There are no stressful blood draws and no gallon-sized urine containers to carry around for 24 hours.
  • With blood and urine testing, a number or borderline adrenal conditions are missed due to lack of sensitivity. This is not the case with the ASI because samples are taken within one circadian cycle and the more definitive free fraction is measured.
  • The ASI is an in-depth test, such that options for treatment are expanded by 400-500% over serum and urine test results.
