The Omega-3 Index is a measure of the level of omega-3 fatty acids in your body. The risk for sudden cardiac death may be reduced by up to 90% in individuals with the highest Omega-3 Index, and there is growing evidence for an association between the Omega-3 Index and other conditions such as aging, dry eye, macular degeneration, dementia, depression, joint health, etc. Most Americans do not get enough omega-3s from their diets. Differences in age, weight, gender, diet, lifestyle habits, metabolism, and absorption make it impossible to accurately predict anyone’s Omega-3 status. The only way to know for sure is to measure the Omega-3 Index.

The blood sample is collected at home with a simple finger stick and then placed in the mail to our OmegaQuant. We will email results back to you typically within 2 weeks from the date of mailing.

Omega-3 Index Report

This is a sample report from OmegaQuant which discusses what optimal levels of the Omega-3 Index are and how to achieve them. It also contains a list of fish and other sources of omega-3 fatty acids. The following is an excerpt from the sample report:

"Many studies have shown that people with higher (vs. lower) omega-3 index levels are at decreased risk for a variety of diseases. These include heart disease, stroke, dementia, and depression to name a few. These people even live longer than those with lower levels. Raising your omega-3 index and keeping it up should help reduce your risk these conditions."

Omega-3 Blood Test Pamphlet

This brochure by OmegaQuant contains a brief summary of the benefits of knowing your Omega-3 Index and the testing options they offer. It also explains how the Omega-3 Index is determined.

"The Omega-3 Index is a blood test that measures the amount of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in red blood cells (RBC) membranes. It is expressed as a percent of total RBC fatty acids. It is a long-term and stable marker of omega-3 status, and it reflects tissue levels of EPA+DHA. An Omega-3 Index over 8% is associated with the lowest risk for death from heart disease and below 4% with the highest."
