To know is to know

Scientific research* shows that 9 out of 10 people do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids. The average Dutch person has an omega-3 index between 4 and 6%, while 8% or more is optimal for your health. Do you know what your omega-3 status is?

The Omega-3 index self-test is a simple blood analysis which measures the fatty acid composition of the wall of our body cells.

The fatty acid composition, including EPA and DHA, is a reflection of our eating pattern over the past three months, so ‘you are what you eat’.

One drop of blood or one drop of breast milk** is enough to measure different types of fatty acids. By far the most important thing is to calculate the percentage of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA of the total fatty acids measured.

In addition, we also measure the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. For the various processes in your body to work optimally, this ratio must be around 4:1. Due to the enormous increase of omega-6 in our diet, this ratio is in many cases up to 20:1. Not optimal.
