Personalized Omega 3 Testing

Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid most commonly found in fatty fish and pastured meats and eggs; however, some plant-based foods also contain a form of it. The term “essential” is used when our bodies NEEDS it to function but CANNOT make it itself.

Personalized omega-3 testing measures the fatty acid composition, including DHA, EPA, and DPA, of whole blood.

Few nutrients have been studied as thoroughly as omega-3 fatty acids. They are incredibly important have many powerful health benefits for your body and brain:

  • Can reduce chronic inflammation which is link to many diseases
  • Helps fight anxiety and depression, as well as age related mental decline.
  • Promotes baby’s brain and eye development in pregnancy and early life.
  • Reduces risk for heart disease
  • Improves gut health
  • Reduces PMS symptoms
  • Improves skin health

Omega 3 levels of 8-12% are associated with better overall health, however most North Americans (and many other countries around the globe) have very low levels.

This simple test requires only a droplet of blood from your finger, which is then sent to a lab specializing in lipid analysis. If lab results indicate a low score, then simple diet and supplement recommendations can be implemented to improve symptoms and support optimal health. Retesting after 4-8 weeks will confirm efficacy of dietary protocol and risk reduction.
