What do Omega 3/6 do?

Essential fatty acids are vital for the normal functioning of your body systems, including supporting your immune system, regulating blood pressure, and keeping your brain healthy. They’re known as polyunsaturated fats and can help lower the level of bad cholesterol in your blood. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered particularly healthy fats — they can help to reduce inflammation and protect your body against heart disease. There’s lots of research supporting the benefits of two particular omega-3 fatty acids — eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) — in supporting heart, brain, joint, and eye health. Omega-6s are also good for you, in moderation. However, they’re thought to be pro-inflammatory. Although inflammation helps protect your body from injury and infection, it can cause damage and disease when it becomes chronic (long-term) and excessive. A healthy balance of omega-3s and omega-6s has the potential to keep this type of inflammation in check.

What can I test?

Omega-3 Index

The Omega-3 Index is the proportion of long-chain omega-3s, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) of all fatty acids in your blood, specifically your red blood cell membranes. Aiming for an Omega-3 Index >8% helps maintain optimum heart, brain, eye, and joint health.

ARA : EPA

Omega-3 essential fatty acids such as EPA are responsible for controlling inflammation, brain development, and regulating blood pressure. Omega-6 fatty acids such as ARA are thought to have a pro-inflammatory role in the body, while omega-3 fatty acids like ERA are thought to have an anti-inflammatory role.
