Omega-3 and healthy ageing

The Omega-3 Index measures the concentration of the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, with the aim of monitoring the health of yourcirculation. It has now been found that these same Omega-3 fatty acids are involved in keeping your cells young for a longer period.

Do you know your own OMEGA-3 Index®?

ARE YOU CURIOUS TO KNOW HOW MUCH OMEGA-3 YOU ACTUALLY INTAKE FROM YOUR DIET?

The Omega-3 Index measures the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA as a guide to your circulatory health. These same Omega-3 fatty acids have now also been found to keep your cells younger for longer.

The Omega-3 Index measures the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA as a guide to your circulatory health. These same Omega-3 fatty acids have now also been found to keep your cells younger for longer. With a level below 8% you might consider using a supplement. Omega-3 fatty acids occur naturally in oily fish, but unfortunately most people still do not eat the recommended two portions (of preferably oily fish) per week. Choose a supplement that supplies at least 500 mg
to 1000 mg EPA+DHA per daily portion. EPA and DHA are the two main Omega-3 fatty acids.

Also check the balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6.

We tend to consume far too many Omega-6 fatty acids from meat, dairy produce and vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn, sesame and groundnut oil.

Consuming less Omega-6 and more Omega-3 will enable you to achieve the optimum 5:1 to2:1 balance and eliminate the 15:1 ratio, which is so often the result of the Western diet.

An HS-Omega-index
between 8% and 11% is highly recommended
if you want to maintain optimum health.

 
 

The Omega-3 Index measures the concentration of the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, with the aim of monitoring the health of your circulation.

The HS-Omega-3 Index test is directly available for you, as a fingerprick test that you should only use once. This test contains a test strip from which both your Omega-3 Index as well as your balance between Omega-6 and Omega-3 can be measured.
