Omega-3 index

Omega-3 index

The Omega-3 Index Test is a simple on-the-spot finger-prick test that measures the percentage of EPA and DHA in red blood cell (RBC) fatty acids. The test itself specifically measures: omega-3 index (total combined EPA and DHA); Omega-6:Omega-3 ratio; EPA:Arachidonic acid ratio; and total trans fats.

It is understood that 4 out of 5 people are not getting enough omega-3 intake, therefore, assessing omega-3 status validates the need for supplementation, as well as identifying those at risk of certain health issues. Monitoring status helps those people requiring motivation to engage in Natural Medicine interventions.
