About the Omega-3 Test
The cerascreen® Omega-3 Test is a home test kit that allows you to analyse the composition of fatty acids in your blood. Our partner medical laboratory determines your omega-3 index and the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids in your blood.
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered particularly healthy fats. But with our modern diets, we actually consume very little omega 3. This can become a problem – if we take in more omega 6 than omega 3, our body is at risk of inflammation and cardiovascular disease.
- Take your sample at home – conveniently and discreetly
- Receive a state-of-the-art laboratory analysis
- Get a breakdown of your fatty acids
- Benefit from specific recommendations on nutrition and your diet
- Receive the result within a few days after your sample’s arrival at the laboratory
Benefits of the Omega-3 Test
Omega-3 fatty acids prevent inflammation in the body; omega-6 fatty acids, on the other hand, promote it. Together, they help maintain low levels of inflammation in our bodies. A ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 of no more than 5:1 is recommended – but most people in Europe tend to have a ratio of 15:1 – as their diet comprises too much omega 6 and not enough omega 3.
A good ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 is said to have a positive effect on blood vessels, the immune system and the distribution of nutrients in the body. So, if you know the composition of fatty acids in your body and you manage to keep the ratio optimal, you will boost your cardiovascular health and your immune system.
