Omega 3 Index
The Omega 3 Index quantifies the fatty acids present in a sample of your whole blood.
Higher levels of long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, specifically Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the blood, have been associated with a lower risk of sudden death from cardiovascular disease (CVD).
The Omega 3 Index is incorporated into your Lifestyle Medicine Assessment to help optimize your nutrition.
(The Omega 3 Index is a blood test done by Lifelabs).
