  • Can be used to validate Practitioner prescriptions through measuring the impact of supplemental fish oil, such as MetaPure EPA/DHA.

What is the Omega-3 Index? | HealthMasters

Clinical Benefits

The Omega-3 Index Test is an on-the-spot finger-prick test that measures the percentage of EPA and DHA in red blood cell (RBC) fatty acids.

The test itself specifically measures:

  • Omega-3 index (total combined EPA and DHA)
  • Omega-6:Omega-3 ratio
  • EPA:Arachidonic acid ratio
  • Total trans fats

It is understood that 4 out of 5 patients are not getting enough omega-3 intake, therefore, assessing omega-3 status validates the need for supplementation, as well as identifying those at risk of cardiovascular health issues.3,4

Ingredients

Each kit contains 1 x sample collection card, lancet, bandage, gauze pad, alcohol wipe, return envelope
