What are Omega3 fatty acids, and why should I make sure to include them in my diet?


Omega3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. We need omega3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain, and since our bodies cannot make omega3 fats, we must get them through food or Supplements. Omega-3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

What are your Omega3 levels?

Holman Omega3 Blood Test

If you want to know your Omega3 levels and you don’t want to visit the doctor or spend a lot of money, here the best alternative. The Holman Omega3 Home Test.

The Holman Omega3 Test is the quick and easy way to measure your omega3 health.
The Holman kit includes an at-home method for obtaining a blood spot sample, which is then supplied to Lipid Technologies, LLC for analysis by their precision proprietary method for high sensitivity blood-spot omega3 analysis.
This test identifies your complete fatty acid profile, specifically focusing on your omega3 and omega6 fatty acid levels.
The Omega3 test tells you if you are properly addressing your omega3 regimen with diet and supplements by targeting blood omega3 levels.

People with low Omega3 levels are told to eat more fish and take fish oil supplements, but this is not a one-size-fits-all type of recommendation. The truth is that there are many factors that go into how we digest, retain and process omega3 fatty acids.
Things like body size, dietary omega6, and oxidative stress all combat the formation of the “omega-3 body”.

In our quest for omega3 health our blood tells the story of how well we are doing. Low blood levels (like most Americans) identify a diet that is low in omega3 and high in omega6.

Adding omega3 to the diet significantly increases omega3 levels and serves as a goal post for achieving omega3 goals. Most Americans have a total omega3 level of 4%. Levels at 6% or higher are considered healthy and levels at 8% or higher are considered excellent.
