80% of Australians are not meeting the recommended daily intakes for omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 is important for:
- maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood triglyceride levels
- improving memory
- reducing joint pain and stiffness
- supporting brain, eye and nerve function
- baby development during pregnancy
A good omega-3 level is obtained by eating oily fish and taking fish oil supplements. It is reduced by eating a diet high in saturated and trans fats, plus alcohol, stress, ageing and illness.
Your omega-3 Index result is a good indicator of cardiovascular risk level. A desirable result is an index value between 8% and 12%. Cultures who have a high intake of fish generally have good omega-3 Index results. Unfortunately many Australians obtain a result closer to 6%.
The test kit contains everything you need to perform a simple finger prick test. You will then receive an email with a colour chart explaining your result.
The cost is $65.
