Now you can do an easy at-home test to check your Omega-3’s

People with an optimal level of omega-3s in their blood tend to live longer, healthier lives – TEST at Home!

There are numerous benefits of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. These fatty acids are known for improving bone and joint health, as well as mental disorders and cognitive function, fighting inflammation, preventing cancer and reducing the symptoms of heart disease, all of which are major issues affecting aging individuals.

Most of these things start happening when you get older in part because of genetics and lifestyle, but also because our bodies start slowing down, which affects the uptake and metabolism of key nutrients.

Fatty fish is among the top anti-aging foods.

WHY eat seafood?

The big reason is that we get Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)!

DHA Effects

  • boosts mitochondria, the energy-producing organelles within a cell
  • protects your heart
  • strengthens your brain and helps maintain proper brain function

Fatty fish like salmon and mackerel contain the omega-3s EPA and DHA. These special fatty acids are found in each cell of the human body, and they serve very important functions such as keeping cell membranes flexible and healthy. The consequence of these functions are healthier tissues and organs, which translates to benefits like a healthy heart and brain as well as healthy skin, to name a few.

OmegaQuant is an independent, CLIA-certified lab that offers Omega-3 Index, Prenatal DHA and Mother’s Milk DHA testing to researchers, clinicians and the public.

When you take an Omega-3 Index test it gives you a percentage, which is simply a measure of the amount of EPA and DHA in your blood. An Omega-3 Index of 8% or higher is ideal, the lowest risk zone. However, most people hover around 6% or below. And unfortunately in the US, most people are at 4% or below – the highest risk zone.

Raising your Omega-3 Index to the desirable zone of 8% will help ensure you are getting enough of the right omega-3s — EPA and DHA — to protect your health.
