To measure is to know

Scientific research* reveals 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 health. Do you know your omega-3 level?

The Omega-3 test is a simple blood analysis that measures the fatty acid composition of the walls of our body cells. The basic test measures the omega-3 content in your blood. You can later upgrade this to ‘Plus’, which also measures omega-6, providing insight into the omega-3 / omega-6 ratio.

The fatty acid composition, including EPA and DHA, reflects our eating habits over the past 3 months, so ‘you are what you eat’.

A single drop of blood or a drop of breast milk** is sufficient to measure various types of fatty acids. The most crucial aspect is calculating the percentage of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA from the total measured fatty acids.

Plus test

When upgrading your basic test, you also measure the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. For optimal functioning of various processes in your body, this ratio should be around 4:1. However, due to the significant increase in omega-6 in our diet, this ratio is often as high as 20:1 in many cases. Not optimal at all.
