The HPA axis helps regulate the release of multiple hormones involved in the body’s stress response (both physical and emotional). Dysfunction of the HPA axis may result in an increased risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease and vulnerability to infection. There are multiple approaches to supporting the HPA axis including both food supplements and testing.

In this webinar, we will discuss research related to key nutrients and also cover urine and saliva testing for adrenal function using Precision Analytical’s DUTCH Complete™ and DUTCH Plus®. At the end of this webinar you will understand the science behind key supplements to manage a healthy stress response and the benefits and importance of testing cortisol. In addition, testing of DHEA metabolites, melatonin and additional OAT markers will be discussed with case examples to help understand how to address HPA axis dysfunction.
