What will my results tell me?
Two Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, are measured in the membranes of the red blood cells and the Omega-3 Index is expressed as a percentage. Two ratios are reported: Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids and AA to EPA. A measurement of Trans Fats in the membranes of the red blood cells is also expressed as a percentage.
The results will show if your Omega-3 Index level is desirable or out of range. Desirable index levels have been associated with decreased risk of heart disease, dementia, and certain eye conditions. You will also learn if you are imbalanced in your Omega-6 to Omega-3 intake, which can cause a pro-inflammatory environment in your body, and let you know if you have high levels of Trans Fats which can increase the risk of certain types of heart disease.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
You will get your Omega-3 Index and guidance on how to improve or maintain healthy levels of both EPA and DHA for lifelong wellness. You will also see if your Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio is potentially unhealthy which can lead to brain fog, fatigue, and increased inflammation in the body. Lastly, you will see if your Trans Fat levels are potentially increasing your risk for certain types of heart disease.
