  • 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.
