Omegaquant Omega-3 Index Basic Test

Omegaquant Omega-3 Index Basic Test - Dried Blood Spot Collection Kit

The Omega-3 Index Basic Test measures the amount of EPA and DHA in the blood. Studies show 8% is the optimal level of omega-3.

When you take an Omega-3 Index test it gives you a percentage, which is simply a measure of the amount of EPA and DHA in your blood. An Omega-3 Index of 8% or higher is ideal, the lowest risk zone. However, most people hover around 6% or below. And unfortunately in the US, most people are at 4% or below – the highest risk zone.

Raising your Omega-3 Index to the desirable zone of 8% will help ensure you are getting enough of the right omega-3s — EPA and DHA — to protect your health.

Each test kits includes x2 finger prick devices, alcohol pad, bandage, gauze pad, blood collection card and self-address reply paid envelope.

Why Test?
The Omega-3 Index is a measure of omega-3s EPA + DHA in your blood. But how much omega-3 you eat is only part of the puzzle. There are many other factors that affect your Omega-3 Index such as: Genetics, Gender, Weight, Age, Lifestyle
