In partnership with Nutrasource Diagnostics and the Cleveland Heart Lab, ALP is pleased to offer you information on both the Omega Blood Score Test (purchase this finger prick test online and mail it in) or the OmegaCheck™ Test (through your physician and/or participating labs referred by your physician). This test, includes your 6/3 ratio, AA, EPA and your AA/EPA ratios, i.e., the good vs. negative fatty acid balance. Why is this important? Clinical research shows that a low AA/EPA ratio is crucial to your overall health. The test will also let you know if you are at risk for sudden cardiac death.
The Omega Score and OmegaCheck™ whole blood tests measure blood levels of the long chain omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These naturally occurring long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids cannot be made in the body in significant amounts and therefore must be obtained through the diet. Since most diets throw this balance out of whack, many individuals choose to supplement their diets with omega-3 fish oil supplements.Order Your Test Kit Today
