EQ Omega-3 Test Kit
– test your fatty acid balance with our biosampling kit for Omega-3 testing
With the help of a simple self-administered device you will quickly get an answer to your omega-6 and omega-3 ratio. The blood sample on the filter paper is extracted and analysed according to international standards for omega fatty acid testing by Vitas AS Laboratory in Oslo, Norway. Your results can be securely accessed on omegaratiotest.com after 15 – 20 business days.
The analysis measures the amount of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in your red blood cells. The most common omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The portion of these two types of fatty acids from all fatty acids in the red blood cell membranes, given in percentage, is what we call the Omega-3 Index.
The Omega-3 Index is a good way of measuring if you are getting enough omega-3 fatty acids in your regular diet. An Omega-3 Index that is lower than 4 indicates a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease, and the ratio between the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in your cellular membranes tells us about the condition to function optimally.
Imporant to remember
When you receive your EQ Omega-3 Test there is a few things you need to be aware of. Carefully follow the user manual in your test kit on how to perform the blood test.
The blood sample collection card contains an ID number. In our new test kit the ID number is already placed on the blood sample card – both on the part that you tear off and keep, and at the part you send to the laboratory. Your test is therefore completely confidential. It is important to retain the part with your ID number since you will need this number later to check your result on omegaratiotest.com. Tip: Take a picture of your ID number in case you lose it.
