Omega 3 Test



Why an Omega 3 Test?

  • Provides insight into your omega 3 - 6 fatty acid ratio
  • Omega 3 test measures 24 fatty acids including EPA / DHA / ALA etc.
  • Self-test can be taken at home / no need to go to the clinic
  • Clear and understandable result
  • Test is delivered through letterbox mail

Your blood contains several fatty acids of which omega 3 is the most well-known. Next to these, you have to think about omega 6, saturated and trans fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids and a good ratio between them are necessary for cardiovascular health. The omega 3 index test shows how many omega fatty acids your blood contains, provides insight into whether there is a healthy ratio with the other fatty acids and gives personal advice.

The ratio of omega 3 and omega 6

The average diet in the Netherlands contains too much omega 6 and too little omega 3. Omega 6 can be found in meat, dairy products and vegetable oils. An excess of omega 6 promotes inflammation and can therefore cause health problems.

The ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids (omega 3 to omega 6 ratio) therefore has a major impact on health, as these two types of fat have to compete for the same enzymes to convert them into useful substances for the body. Research shows that when the ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 is not right, there is a greater risk of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, depression, diabetes and obesity. 

What is tested in an omega 3 blood test?

The omega 3 index test is a comprehensive test that looks at the essential fatty acids in the blood and also gives an insight into the amount of all other types of fat in the blood. This blood test therefore looks at the amount of omega 3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids in the blood, among other things. In the case of omega 3, a distinction is made between: ala, dpa, epa and dha. The omega 6 fatty acids are broken down into la, gla, aa, dta, eicosadienoic acid and docosapentaenoic acid-n6. If there is a shortage, this breakdown immediately shows where improvement is possible. The test also looks at monounsaturated fatty acids, saturated fatty acids and trans fats. In short, a comprehensive blood test that looks at all the fats in the blood.

Testing your omega 3, how does it work?

Would you like to know whether your blood contains sufficient omega 3? The omega 3 test gives you an immediate answer. It is a self-test that you can easily perform at home with a finger prick. You receive a test kit with which you can take a drop of blood yourself. After sampling, you send the test kit back to a certified laboratory. After the analysis is done, you will receive a detailed result with the result, additional information about omega 3 and the ratio between omega 3 and omega 6.

What can you do with the result of a fatty acids test?

With your results in hand, you immediately have a clear picture of the amount of fatty acids in your blood. It's good to know what's good and especially where there is still room for improvement. The report also contains personal advice. Based on your results, you will receive a series of recommendations that you can put to work immediately. These tips will help you improve your omega 3 level or maintain a good one.

Think in particular of tips on nutrition, because this is the main source of omega 3 and omega 6. A sufficient daily intake of omega 3 can increase the supply. Products that can contribute to this are nuts, linseed and various types of green vegetables, vegetable omega 3. In addition to this, it is good to eat fatty fish twice a week. Oily fish such as herring, salmon, krill oil or sardines contain a lot of omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
