Find out how well your body handles stress.

Stress Hormone Test - Adrenals

The Adrenocortex Stress Profile measures the key hormones involved in the stress response. Stress hormones like cortisol are released from your adrenal gland into your blood stream and affect your whole body.

  • Are you burned out and unable to keep up?
  • Difficulty recovering from workouts?
  • Is your stress response too high causing insomnia, weight gain, and chronic disease?

This test can guide you to more energy, better sleep, improved mood, clearer thinking, and more effective workouts.

  • Saliva Collection
  • Ages 18+ Recommended
$165 + $15 Physician Fee HSA/FSA Eligible

*Testing is not available in NY, NJ, RI, or outside of the continental United States.

How will this test help me?

You might think you don't need testing to know you're 'stressed.' This profile shows cortisol patterns that might surprise you and aren't measured in conventional testing. When stress goes unchecked, it can lead to a host of chronic issues. Your results may offer insight on:


A flat line of cortisol release may indicate potential burnout.

Glucose Instability

High spikes of cortisol during the day may be caused by blood sugar instability.


Elevations of cortisol at night may be contributing to your inability to sleep.


Abnormal findings can help guide optimal exercise and adjust recovery time.


The body's balance between hormones can build up muscle and bone or break them down over time.

Metabolic Health

Chronically high cortisol levels can lead to weight gain, diabetes, and inability to fight infections.

We're all about connections.

Especially when it comes to your health.

With Genova Connect, you'll not only have access to comprehensive testing, but also to a network of clinicians who can help you make sense of your results.

We know sometimes taking care of your health can feel like a guessing game, but we're here to help connect the dots for you. Are you ready to take the next step towards a happier, healthier you?


We provide results reports and links to educational resources. You may schedule time with a Cynergy provider to discuss your results for an additional cost, consult your own healthcare provider, or find a physician to help you understand your results and work with you to build a health plan.

It is your responsibility to ask your doctor what your test results mean. Genova Connect urges you to always share the test results with your doctor in order to make the best decisions for your health.

While our profiles are eligible for FSA/HSA funds, traditional health insurance can not be used to complete your purchase. Accepted forms of payment include Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express.

Most result reports will be available 7-17 days after being received by our lab.

The $15 physician fee is collected on behalf of a third-party healthcare practitioner (Cynergy Wellness) that will provide independent physician oversight of lab ordering and testing. This fee makes it possible to order testing without having to schedule an appointment with your physician first.

The fee does not cover any physician follow-up services. The physician fee is non-refundable. Learn more about Cynergy Wellness' services by reviewing the Terms and Conditions and Refund Policy.

If possible, plan to complete your collection early in the work week and be sure to ship your pack within 24 hours of collection to ensure specimens are viable.

You should also note that some collection packs contain materials that expire (this date is printed on the box label). Plan to collect and return your pack well before that date or within 45 days of receiving the collection pack, whichever comes first. If the pack is not returned within this timeline, we may not be able to complete your test.
