Estro Test

Hormones can affect a woman’s fertility and post-menopausal health. Understanding your genes can help you to optimise your health during your reproductive years and beyond.

Oestrogens are natural hormones important in sexual development and the regulation of a woman’s menstrual cycle, affecting the entire reproductive system.

If a woman’s egg is not fertilized during a cycle, oestrogen levels decrease sharply and menstruation begins. If the egg is fertilized, oestrogen works with progesterone, another hormone, to stop ovulation during pregnancy.

Oestrogen also plays a role in bone formation, working with vitamin D, calcium and other hormones to break down and rebuild bones according to the body’s natural processes. At middle age, as oestrogen levels begin to decline, the capability of rebuilding bones slows, with postmenopausal women eventually breaking down more bone than they can rebuild.

5 stars for Assure DNA. Fast, great service. Vitamin report gave me everything I wanted to know. Highly recommend.

HOW IT WORKS

Our Estro test kits contain a mouth swab to collect your DNA, which is then sent to us for analysis in our laboratory. We look at a number of genetic variants that can influence your oestrogen levels. We send you a tailored report based on your unique genetic variations, and provide recommendations accordingly, to help you maintain healthy oestrogen levels.

INCLUDED IN THIS TEST

Oestrogen Metabolism

This looks at various gene variant that are known to be involved in the regulation and metabolism of Oestrogen.

Oxidative Stress & Detoxification

Your genetic test results indicate your potential to neutralise free radicals and remove potentially toxic substances.

Refine Carbohydrates

We test for genes involved in the sensitivity to Refined carbohydrates. The higher the sensitivity, the higher the weight gain and blood glucose may be for a given amount of carbohydrate.

Lipids Metabolism

Here, we look at genetic variants that can modify your lipid profile, either raising or lowering your cholesterol levels.

DID YOU KNOW

The Guinness world record for the oldest mother is held by Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara, who gave birth by to twin boys when she was 66 years and 358 days old.

A woman’s risk of developing breast cancer may rise slightly with the amount of oestrogen her body is exposed to.

It has been suggested that regular exercise can reduce a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer by as much as a third.

Being overweight or obese after the menopause can change the levels of hormone a woman’s body produces.
