About Omega-3 Index Testing
Fats are crucial parts of your daily nutrition plan but a balance of the right types of fats (saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated) are the key to improving your health and longevity. Our Omega-3 Index Complete test gives you a snapshot of the fats that make up your cells. Some fatty acid levels are closely related to what you eat while others are more affected by your metabolism. Your diet isn’t the only factor that establishes your blood fatty acid levels – genetics, gender, weight, age and other lifestyle factors all can play a role. For some fats like omega-3's and trans fats, eating that fat directly increases blood levels of that fat. This is why testing matters. The only way to know your blood levels of fatty acids, and how your daily nutrition plan affects them, is to test. As we say at eNRG Performance, "Test. Don't guess."
Unfortunately, simply eating more omega-3 rich fish or taking fish oil supplements will not tell you exactly how much impact that will make until you have your Omega-3 Index measured. It usually takes about 3 - 4 months to raise your Omega-3 Index level after making daily nutrition changes and our Sport Dietitians will help you create the best implementation strategy based on your testing and lifestyle.
Here are sample reports from a test. You can see this individual needs to increase his omega-3 rich foods or use a supplement providing the proper doses of omega-3 fats. Additionally, this individual is eating too many omega-6 fats relative to their omega-3 fat intake and their trans fat levels are low (a very good thing).
Instructions for ordering your Omega-3 test
Step 1: Purchase the Omega-3 Index Complete testing (to the right). Once we receive your payment, we will email you to confirm your mailing address and you will be mailed the collection kit.
Step 2: Follow the simple kit instructions to collect your blood sample (one drop of blood is required and all materials that you will need to do this will be in the collection kit). Once you have your sample collected, drop it in the mail using the pre-paid envelope.
Step 3: After the lab receives your sample, it usually takes about 2 weeks for your eNRG Performance Sport Dietitian to receive your results. After we receive them, we will email them to you and schedule a 15 minute consult to review your results.
