Most of us recognize the importance of omega-3, but how many are aware of the balance between omega-3 and omega-6, or the ratio of saturated to unsaturated fats in our body? The Omega-3 Plus delves deep into your health by examining both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids along with saturated and unsaturated fats.

For those interested in a more comprehensive nutritional analysis, our Nutrition Test is an excellent complement. It measures 8 minerals and 4 ratios between key minerals in whole blood, providing a wider perspective on your nutritional health.

Fatty Acids in Our Body

Omega-3 & Omega-6: These essential polyunsaturated fats play pivotal roles in our bodies, particularly in maintaining brain health and regulating inflammation. However, an imbalance can lead to various health issues.
Saturated & Unsaturated Fats: While saturated fats, predominantly in animal products, can raise cholesterol levels, unsaturated fats, on the other hand, can decrease bad cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.

What Omega-3 Plus Analyses

Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

  • Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA): Fundamental for cell membrane structure.
  • Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA): Supports heart health and offers anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Docosapentaenoic acid (DPA): Serves as an intermediary in the ALA to EPA and DHA conversion process.
  • Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA): Key for brain development and function.

Omega-6 Fatty Acids:

  • Linoleic acid (LA): Integral for cell membrane construction.
  • Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA): Enhances skin health.
  • Dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA): A precursor to inflammatory components.
  • Arachidonic acid (AA): Involved in inflammation processes.

Saturated Fatty Acids:

  • Myristic acid (MA)
  • Palmitic acid (PA)
  • Stearic acid (SA)

Unsaturated Fatty Acids:

  • Palmitoleic acid (PLA): Known to lower bad cholesterol, thus benefiting heart health.
  • Oleic acid (OA): Similarly helps in reducing bad cholesterol, promoting heart health.
