What?

This measures EPA and DHA.These two important omega-3 fats found in seafood, are essential for brain health. The Omega-3 Index measures the amount of EPA and DHA in red blood cells (RBC). The result shows the % of total RBC fats, and is a long-term, stable marker of omega-3 status.

A higher Omega-3 Index has been associated with optimal cognitive function and cardiovascular health and redcued risk of many diseases. Omega-3s are beneficial for normal vision, anti-aging, skin health, maternal health, immune function, brain health, heart health, normal liver function, joints and muscles.

Experts recommend an Omega-3 Index of at least 8%.

Description

What’s in the kit?

Enrollment with the purchase of a Omega-3 Index blood spot test kit includes:

  • 2-3 lancets
  • Blood spot card(s) for the tests ordered
  • 1 envelope for returning your blood spot card
  • 1 gauze pad, 1 band aid, and 1 alcohol swab

When you order your kit, you will also be participating as a citizen scientist in the world’s most comprehensive Alzheimer’s prevention project. You will be invited to retest your Cognitive Function every six months, and encouraged to reduce your Dementia Risk Index by joining COGNITION, the ‘brain upgrade’ program. This takes you through a six month cycle to motivate simple diet and lifestyle changes to reduce your Dementia Risk Index.

You may choose to retest every 3 months, 6 months or year and, can, at anytime, change your order. For example, if you bring one test into the ‘green’ on the DRIfT section of your DASHBOARD you may only wish to retest other important biochemical markers. If you have selected a retest option we’ll remind you.

Included in the Omega-3 Index test kit is:

  • 2 lancets
  • 1 Omega-3 Index blood spot card
  • 1 envelope for returning the card
  • 1 gauze pad, 1 band aid, and 1 alcohol swab
