About the Omega 3,6: Full Fatty Acids Test 

FATTY ACIDS (EPA, DHA, GLA) are essential for Lowering LDL and increasing HDL cholesterol; decreases blood clotting time, anti-arrhythmic, anti-inflammatory effect that benefits heart tissue, structural in brain and retinal tissue and play a role in treatment for autoimmune disorders, kidney disease, and skin integrity.

You can find out what fats make up your cells with the Omega-3 Index Complete test. Diet is not the only thing that determines your blood fatty acid levels – metabolism, genetics, gender, weight, age and other lifestyle factors all can play a role. For omega-3s and trans fats, eating that fat directly increases blood levels of that fat. Other fatty acids don’t respond to intake. For example, eating a lot of saturated fat doesn’t directly raise blood levels of saturated fat, but eating a lot of carbohydrates does. This is why testing matters.

 

Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio: A key measure

  • Omega-3 Index (DHA + EPA) - the bioavailable Omega in your body
  • AA:EPA Ratio - Inflammation Status of your body
  • Omega 6: Omega 3 Ratio - Omega imbalance status

 

What are the health risks of Omega imbalance?

Omega imbalance causes the inflammation which is the underlying condition for many health conditions. Omega imbalance is also one of the reasons for Autism spectrum disorder

  • Diabetes 
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Disease 
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis 
  • Allergies 
  • Asthma 
  • Neurological conditions - mood, depression, ADHD, Autism Spectrum 

How does this test help?

  • The early information forewarns about the impending complications because of crucial omega deficiency thereby preventing your risk of developing inflammation - the underlying cause of major diseases 
  • The optimised omega index is also known to improve cognitive and neurological function
  • The optimised omega 3 helps in healthy development of foetus 

What are essential fatty acids?

Fatty acids that cannot be produced by our body but are crucial for our health are called essential fatty acids (EFA). These essential fatty acids can be consumed via a balanced diet.

Why is docosahexaenoic acid important?

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is required for the growth and development of our brain tissue, especially in infants. DHA is also important for improving learning ability and its deficiency might cause learning difficulties.

What are omega 6 fatty acids?

Omega 6 Fatty acids are a part of the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). They are common in processed foods like fast foods and fried foods.

Do omega 6 fatty acids reduce inflammation?

No Omega 6 fatty acids do not reduce inflammation, However, omega 3 fatty acids have anti inflammatory effect

what is eicosapentaenoic acid?

eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega 3 fatty acid and is commonly present in flesh of fish and fish oils.

How much epa and dha per day?

One should consume 250-500 mg of combination of EPA and DHA per day in their diets for overall health
