The Impact of Omega-3 Deficiency

Knowing your Omega-3 levels can be life changing but also life saving.

Suppose you could, with precision, determine your personal risk for sudden cardiac death— but then reduce it substantially in a matter of weeks while also helping to extend your life span by 5 years…would you be interested?

The revolutionary Omega-3 Index provides a clear picture of the percentage of EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids in your blood to estimate your risk of a major cardiac event and helps to identify other critical health risk factors in advance.

Some of the health risks and benefits of knowing your  Omega-3 levels are highlighted in our new Omega-3 thermometer below.  For full transparency, if you are interested in learning more about any of the statements below, click the glowing asterisks, these will direct you to the scientific research.

Knowing your Omega-3 index is just as, if not more important, than knowing your cholesterol level or blood pressure, and ‘fixing’ the Omega-3 index is much easier – not to mention cheaper and safer than treating all those other risk factors. Improving your Omega-3 Index score can be solved by eating more fish or taking a high-quality Omega-3 supplement.
