Keep reading below to learn more about why the test results are so important to your health, and exactly what the test reveals.
Why should you test your omega-3/6 levels?
According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, “Most American diets provide more than 10 times as much omega-6 as omega-3 fatty acids. There is general agreement that individuals should consume more omega-3 and less omega-6 fatty acids to promote good health.”
HUFA or "highly unsaturated fatty acids" are the "long-chain" omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that are essential for brain, eye, heart, and immune system health.
The Vital Omega-3 and 6 HUFA Test™ measures the blood levels of these two families of essential nutrients, which play important roles in controlling inflammation and maintaining brain, cardiovascular, immune, and metabolic health.
The test measures two of the most important risk factors for coronary heart disease; the ratio of omega 3’s to omega 6’s in your blood stream.
The tests are conducted by a top fatty acid analyst that is trusted by the world’s leading omega-3 researchers, so you’ll be sure to get accurate, meaningful results.
Based on your personal Omega-3 levels in the result, you’ll learn your Heart Risk Score:
Further, you’ll receive a detailed report that provides several other perspectives on your risk profile and what each of these factors means for your overall health:
- Omega-3 Index
- Total Omega-3s
- Total Omega-6s
- Omega-3 EPA, DHA, ALA, and DPA
- Total Omega-6/Omega-3 Ratio
- AA/EPA ratio
You'll also see how your key results compare to the U.S. average and to optimal levels.
Finally, we provide a full analysis of all the fatty acids in your blood—37 in all—as well as the percentages of saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and highly unsaturated fatty acids.
