Most of us know omega-3 is good for us. But how good? From a small prick in your finger, the Ideal Omega test measures the level of omega-3 in your blood, and determines the individual requirement of this super nutrient you need to improve your health. It's that simple.
The Omega-3 Index has been shown to be a better predictor of heart disease and especially sudden cardiac death, than traditional coronary heart disease risk factors including LDL and HDL cholesterol. Individuals with a high Index have a decrease in the relative risk for sudden cardiac death by as much as 90%.
The science behind the Omega-3 Index has been validated by data from large-scale human clinical studies including the Physicians' Health Study (PHS), which involved 14,916 healthy male physicians. In these studies the Omega-3 Index was clearly related to risk of having a heart attach.
Your Omega-3 Index cannot be predicted with certainty without analysing your blood. Many factors including age, sex, weight.
