PerformanceCheck measures testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol to monitor your workout
PerformanceCheck is a safe, easy-to-use, and reliable screen that uses a saliva sample to measure your levels of testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol, hormones that can be crucial for an effective workout. This noninvasive and inexpensive health screen provides the accuracy of a laboratory analysis without you having to leave the comfort of your own home.
Hormones are essential for the proper function of your body, athlete or otherwise. Whether you're exercising as part of a healthy lifestyle, training as part of your involvement in a specific sport, or into serious bodybuilding, three hormones, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and cortisol, can help you get the most out of your workout. Proper levels of these hormones help your body function at its maximum potential.
PerformanceCheck by BodyBalance measures your levels of these three hormones that contribute to much of your body's functioning ability. Testosterone, commonly recognized as the "male" hormone, is also very important to women as well. In addition to sexual development and function, testosterone can play a vital role for men and women in lean muscle and bone development, lean body mass, and cardiovascular fitness. DHEA is a precursor hormone from which testosterone and other hormones are produced. Low levels of DHEA have been associated with obesity and poor cardiovascular fitness, while normal DHEA levels can help increase muscle strength and lean body mass. Cortisol helps activate your body when stress is imposed upon it, maintaining and even increasing your energy levels, as well as affecting blood pressure. These hormones are important for optimal athletic performance.
PerformanceCheck is designed for two types of people: those who are into more overall physical, endurance-type training; and those who are interested in bodybuilding, gaining muscle mass and adding bulk to their frames. Whichever category fits you best, PerformanceCheck can provide equally powerful benefits.
