Omega-3 fats are a small group of molecules technically known as fatty acids. The key clinical omega-3 fats are EPA and DHA, which are found largely in coldwater fish. It is well established in current literature that a higher blood level of these important fats may help to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
The evidence for supplementing with omega-3 fats is now so firmly established that even mainstream doctors are convinced of its merits. But until now there’s been no easy way for people to monitor the effects of supplementation.
Life Extension® now offers an omega-3 blood test for evaluating the success of supplementation with fish oils. The test evaluates what is called an Omega Score® by measuring the following:
This test is conveniently packaged in a kit. Fasting is not required. Consumption of omega-3 supplements or high omega seafood such as Tuna or Salmon within 24-48 hours of testing will not impact the results. Take your supplements the day prior to testing; however do not supplement the morning of the test.
This test is not part of any other Life Extension Panel.
