Do you want to know via a lab test whether your omega-3 index and the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in your body (fatty acid balance) are in good shape?
The HS-Omega-3 Index Test is a test kit that we send to you. You take a few drops of blood from your fingertip completely painlessly and send them to our laboratory with the provided return envelope.
After analysis you will receive an extensive results overview. A correct omega-3 index varies between 8% and 11%.
If your omega-3 index is on the low side and you choose to monitor your omega-3 intake more closely, it is advisable to do another test after 4 months to see the result. Due to the longevity of red blood cells, this second test is only meaningful, at the earliest, after 3 to 4 months of increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids.
