    I would go with blood purely for the reason that it is not ever in contact with air. Its taken from your vody in a vacuum and sent away.

    Its what most people use to test.

    Ive never used saliva though so thats my one sided opinion fwiw

    KingKong I actually had read that article too. It didn't give a defined choice either way, but it brings up a point HZ made the way it is collected. Saliva is collected at home and there is room for contamination where blood the chances are slim.

    Thanks Guys!!

    Your guess is as good as mine I just googled it..I’ve always done blood that doesn’t mean it’s a better choice though..

    lol

    saliva. gotta be joking, right?

    well , pull bloods and saliva at same time.

    won't even be close.

    we are looking fori literal "blood plasma concentrations " of hormones and lipids.

    they are not going to be present in spit.

    then a link to the authors company that does saliva testing.

    that's not an article, its sponsored content.
