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.
