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…
Signs of Low Omega-3 Levels: Identifying the Symptoms
If you’re experiencing symptoms such as poor memory, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, poor vision, or a lack of focus, you may be exhibiting signs of low omega-3 levels. These symptoms serve as crucial indicators that your body might not be receiving an adequate supply of these essential fatty acids, highlighting the importance of testing your Omega-3 Index.
With this finger-prick test, you can easily measure the percentage of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA from the total measured fatty acids in your blood. With an Omega-3 Index between 8-12%, you are in the green, indicating that your body is optimally supplied with good fatty acids.
Recent scientific research indicates that a high omega-3 value in your blood, hence a value in the green range, increases life expectancy by almost 5 years. This effect is comparable to quitting smoking. Don’t you want that too?!
