What Is Your Omega-3 Index?

The Omega-3 Index Plus Test measures fatty acid levels in the blood and reports Omega-3, Omega-6 and trans fat blood levels. Omega-3, Omega-6 and trans fats all play a role in your health and are related to risk for a variety of issues. Tracking these numbers can help you optimize them for your health.

Aim For 8% Or Higher

A lower index is indicative of high Omega-6 levels, which may raise your risks of heart disease, arthritis, asthma and other chronic inflammatory diseases.

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.

What effect does a high Omega-3 Index have on our body?

People with higher Omega-3 Indexes have lowered risk of:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Many other chronic inflammatory diseases

By The Numbers

  • 8-12% is an ideal Omega-3 Index
  • 1.2% is common of a Western diet
  • < 4% is considered higher coronary risk
