Thriva will be expanding its test-at-home kits with a saliva-based cortisol test and two female hormone kits soon.
Thriva is a track-at-home health startup company based in the UK. The company provides products and services which help to keep a track on health with personalized at-home-finger-prick blood tests.
Saliva-based cortisol test will help measure an individual’s stress levels. When you are stressed, the body releases cortisol hormone to help cope under stressful situations. High cortisol hormones are released under stress which can lead to anxiety disorders, sleep-related problems, depression and more.
With the help of a cortisol test, you can determine your stress levels and manage your health accordingly. All you have to do is simply chew on the material tube 4 times a day and the results will be revealed in 48 hours.
The idea behind this stress test kit is to help understand that if their cortisol levels are high and at what point during the day stress levels increased. The price of this stress test is £79 (approx. ₹7339).
