Omega-3 fatty acids are essential, because we do not produce them ourselves. They are active in all your body cells and tissues. The fatty acids EPA and DHA in particular help your body to function optimally and are indispensable for your heart, your eyes and your brain. But few people have enough omega-3 in their blood…
So, do you recognise symptoms such as poor memory or difficulty concentrating, do you eat vegan, do you do a lot of sport or do you want to grow old in good health? Then test your Omega-3 Index.
With this finger prick test, you can easily measure the percentage of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA of the total measured fatty acids in your blood. With an Omega-3 Index between 8-12% you are in the green. It indicates that your body is optimally provided with good fatty acids.
Recent scientific research shows that a high omega-3 value in your blood, i.e. a value in the green, increases life expectancy by almost five years. That is an effect comparable to that of stopping smoking. You want that too, don’t you?
Your Omega-3 Index is analysed by OmegaQuant LLC in the UK. You get a test worth €49.95 sent to your home for only €35.00
There is a good chance that your omega-3 index is lower than 8%. The average Dutch person has an index of 4.5% and is therefore in the orange zone. That is far too low and can cause all kinds of discomfort. In order to get the omega-3 index of many Dutch people into the green zone, we have set up the Testa Omega-3 Challenge . We challenge everyone to bring their omega-3 index to the optimal level with vegetable algae oil as soon as possible.
That is good for you, and for the ocean!
