What are Omega 3’s?
Omega-3’s are essential fatty acids- nutrients that are required for optimal health but cannot be produced by our bodies, and therefore must be consumed through diet or supplementation.
Why do I need lipid testing?
The typical American diet is high in Omega 6’s (Pro- Inflammatory chemicals) while the body’s needs for Omega-3’s (Anti-Inflammatory Chemicals) aren’t met. When we consume high Omega-6’s and not enough Omega 3’s, the ratio can become dangerously altered. By getting your levels tested, we can find the imbalance of Omega-3’s and Omega-6’s in your body and can drastically change your chemical profile. Omega-3’s promote the anti-inflammatory response in your body, along with improving circulation, decreasing pain, and relaxing blood vessels.
How is the test administered?
The Holman Omega-3 test is so simple! All that is needed from you is a prick from your finger and nothing more. Your test can either be done in office or taken home with you. The purchase of the test is $175.
