All of the symptoms above may be a sign of an Omega 3 deficiency.
Omega-3 fatty acids can be beneficial to many aspects of health including helping to decrease system-wide inflammation, the root cause of most diseases.
To help our patients improve their overall health, our office is now offering an easy way for you to test your Omega 3 levels.
The Omega-3 Index Plus Test is a blood test that measures the percentage of Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in red blood cell membranes.
• This convenient test uses a single drop of blood to measure the Omega-3 Index
• A finger prick provides enough blood to measure the Omega-3 Index.
• Testing is confidential, between the patient and their practitioner.
• A personalized report will be sent via email and will include individualized
recommendations based on test results.
There are three phases of Omega-3 testing:
Measure: Eating fish or taking supplements does not guarantee your Omega-3 Index will be in the desirable range – it must be measured.
Modify: With your Omega-3 Index results you will have the tools to personalize your Omega-3 intake.
Monitor: Track how your dietary changes affect your Omega-3 Index by testing every 4-6 months.
An Omega-3 Index in the desirable range of 8-12% is an indicator of better overall health. As a part of an overall healthy lifestyle, an Omega-3 Index in the 8-12% range may help to maintain heart, brain, eye and joint health.
Once you know your Omega-3 Index, you can personalize your diet to modify your Omega-3 Index in as little as 3-4 months.
