Understanding Omega-3

Omega-3 comprises a group of polyunsaturated fatty acids known for their health advantages. They play a crucial role in cardiovascular health, brain function, and inflammation. As the body can’t produce omega-3 naturally, it’s essential to obtain them through diet or supplements.

Fatty Acids Analyzed


    • 18:3 Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA)
    • 20:5 Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
    • 22:5 Docosapentaenoic Acid (DPA)
    • 22:6 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)
  1. Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) ALA is an essential fatty acid, meaning our body cannot produce it. It’s primarily found in plant oils, such as flaxseed oil. Though ALA can convert to other omega-3 fatty acids in the body, the efficiency of this conversion can vary.
  2. Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) Predominantly found in fatty fish and algae, EPA has anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
  3. Docosapentaenoic Acid (DPA) DPA, a lesser-known omega-3 fatty acid, is present in certain fish species. It acts as an intermediary in the body’s conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA.
  4. Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) Recognized for its benefits to the brain and eyes, DHA primarily exists in fatty fish and algae. It is especially significant during pregnancy and breastfeeding, aiding the baby’s brain and eye development.

Before taking the test

  • Your test ID must be registered before it is sent for analysis (otherwise the lab will not analyze the test).
  • We recommend that you take the test on an empty stomach in the morning.
  • We recommend that you submit the test for analysis on a Monday or Tuesday.
  • If tracking code is available, please attach it to the front of the envelope (found on your test ID card).
  • Before you start, you need to register your test. Your test kit contains a sticker with your unique test ID. Register your test ID at
  • Wash your hands in hot water for about a minute. This will increase blood circulation in your fingers. Dry your hands. Doing a blood test without stimulating blood circulation might prove difficult, so please do not skip this step.
  • Disinfect your “test finger” with the supplied disinfectant paper. Wait a few seconds until the finger is completely dry.
  • Rotate the protective cover on the blood lancet to remove it. Use the extra lancet if you need to do another finger prick.
  • Place your hand on a flat surface. Put the lancet diagonally toward the test finger and press down the button. Make sure the lancet is pressed against the finger the whole time.
  • We recommend that you stand up at this stage to let the blood in your arm flow downward. Help the blood drops come out by massaging the finger toward the needle stick.
  • Drip the blood onto the circles on the paper. Standing up will help. It is important to fill all the circles completely, otherwise the lab will not be able to complete the test.
  • Place the sticker with your unique test-ID onto the paper. Wait 2 hours for the blood to dry.
  • When the blood has dried for 2 hours, put the paper in the plastic cover it arrived in.
  • Put the plastic cover in the enclosed envelope and send it the same day (preferably a Monday or Tuesday).

  2. Weston

    I’m someone who’s always conscious of my health, especially when it comes to my heart and brain functions, both of which are said to benefit significantly from Omega-3 fatty acids. Given that my diet doesn’t always allow for adequate fish consumption, I turned to the Omega-3 Basic test offered by GetTested. This at-home test kit turned out to be exceptionally user-friendly and unintimidating. The straightforward instructions provided made the collection and submission of my sample hassle-free, reducing the anxiety that typically comes with health tests. The packaging was discreet, ensuring my privacy was respected throughout the process. What truly stood out was the speed and clarity of the results. Not long after sending my sample, I received an easy-to-decipher report outlining my Omega-3 levels. It was enlightening to see the exact values of my Omega-3 and Omega-6 levels, as well as their ratio, which is crucial for understanding my body’s inflammatory response. Additionally, the report provided insightful recommendations tailored to my specific profile, suggesting dietary adjustments and supplements that could help me optimize my Omega-3 levels. It was evident that these suggestions were not one-size-fits-all but were instead carefully crafted to meet my unique needs and health objectives. In conclusion, my experience with the Omega-3 Basic test from GetTested has been nothing short of positive. It provided me with valuable insights into my health, serving as a proactive measure to prevent potential issues down the line. For anyone considering taking charge of their health, particularly concerning heart and brain functions, I wholeheartedly recommend this efficient and reliable testing service.

    Having always heard about the myriad benefits of Omega-3, I decided it was time to truly understand my body’s standing with the Omega-3 Basic test from GetTested.

    But where this test truly shone for me was in the detailed results. Within a week, I received an in-depth report. Instead of just handing over numbers and leaving me to figure things out, the report was accompanied by detailed explanations, breaking down the significance of each value and what it meant for my health. It felt like I had a personal nutritionist guiding me. Moreover, the actionable advice provided was a game-changer. It wasn’t just about taking supplements; it delved into dietary recommendations and lifestyle changes to naturally balance my Omega-3 levels.
