Ready to collect your saliva sample? There are a couple of tips and tricks to speed up the saliva collection process + generate more saliva:
The first and probably most important is to make sure you're very hydrated. Drinking 4-6 glasses of water within 20 minutes of taking your test is advised.
Smelling vinegar before and during your collection helps generate saliva. Your mouth may become watery, so be sure to slowly release the saliva to avoid a buildup in bubbles.
You also do not need to collect your samples on the same day. Many Base members find it easiest to start with their night collection!
Also, don't forget to keep your saliva sample in the fridge until you are ready to mail your test kit to the lab.
