Omega 3 and 6 (Essential Fatty Acids) Blood Test
A laboratory blood test with simple at-home collection to check the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids in the blood.
Fats are required in every cell of our bodies and are vital for regulating blood pressure, strengthening our immune system and keeping our brains healthy. The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in our bodies is very important. Omega-6 fatty acids have a pro-inflammatory role while omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory role. This test looks at the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 to ensure you are striking the right balance of these two fats in your diet for optimal health.
