I used to believe that blood testing was the best way to
check testosterone.

But now I know better…

Because serum (blood) tests only check total testosterone.

But the real important number is your Free Testosterone. 

The steroid that is not bound up by carrier proteins.
And is available for immediate use by your body.

This explains why we use saliva to check free testosterone
with our hormone test kits…

It’s the number you really want to know.

But how accurate is saliva hormone testing?

Well, several scientific studies have proven one thing…

It’s the most accurate way to measure bio-available hormone
activity in the human body.

You get information from saliva that simply cannot be found
in blood.

Look at it like this…..

Say you wanted to check the unemployment rate in your
town.

Your blood test number would give you the total population
in the city.

But saliva would give the exact number of people who are
actually employed.

And employed is a good analogy here….

Because free testosterone is the steroid that does all the
work in your body.

But your bound T doesn’t even get out of bed in the morning.

That’s why I will always recommend saliva hormone testing
over blood testing.

Unfortunately many doctors don’t see it this way…

They check total testosterone and base their medical
decisions off that number.

Bad move.

Especially if that doc has a habit of putting men on
Androgel based on these numbers.

And I can tell you right now a LOT of them do this.

But this won’t happen to you. Because now you know
better 🙂
