The Omega-3 Index
The Omega-3 Index Do you know your Omega-3 level. You should. The Omega-3 Index is a nutritional tool that provides feedback on an individual’s omega-3 status. By recording the percentage concentration of the omega-3s EPA and DHA in red blood cells, the Omega-3 Index provides a useful indication of a person’s long-term intake of omega-3s and has been proposed as a novel biomarker for cardiovascular risk. Aim for 8 An omega-3 index of 8% or above is considered optimal, while a low omega-3 index indicates a higher risk of sudden cardiac death.
