Omega-3: Key Roles and Benefits

Omega-3, a group of polyunsaturated fatty acids, offers numerous health benefits. These essential nutrients support cardiovascular health, brain function, and inflammation management. As our bodies cannot produce omega-3, we must acquire them through diet or supplements for optimal health.

Analysing Fatty Acids in Our Test

  1. Omega-3 Index: Your omega-3 index reveals the percentage of EPA and DHA compared to the total amount of fatty acids in your blood. Aiming for a high omega-3 index is beneficial, as it reflects a healthy balance of these crucial fatty acids, known for their positive impact on overall health.
  2. 18:3 Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA): You find ALA, an essential fatty acid, in plant oils such as flaxseed oil. Your body can convert ALA to other omega-3 fatty acids, although the efficiency of this process varies.
  3. 20:5 Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA): EPA, primarily in fatty fish and algae, offers anti-inflammatory benefits and reduces cardiovascular disease risks.
  4. 22:5 Docosapentaenoic Acid (DPA): Present in certain fish, DPA acts as an intermediary in converting ALA to EPA and DHA.
  5. 22:6 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA): Known for its brain and eye health benefits, DHA is mainly in fatty fish and algae. It is crucial during pregnancy and breastfeeding for developing the baby's brain and eyes.
