Omega 3 & 6 Essential Fatty Acids
58.00
Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are highly consequential to key hormone prostaglandin production, which rule over inflammatory conditions and immune response in the body.

High Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratios are implicated in depressed healing and order of magnitude greater risks for progression of cardiovascular diseases.

The Omega 3 & 6 Essential Fatty Acids tests absolute levels and ratios in measured blood values, specifically for:
Omega-3 Index (DHA + EPA)
– these n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are what your body needs to function properly but does not make. Humans can only get these fatty acids through food.  EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are found in seafood, such as salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel or shellfish, and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) from sources such as walnuts and flaxseed oils. Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA, have been shown to benefit and protect heart function from cardiovascular disease.
Omega-6
– these n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are also essential fats that your body needs to function properly but does not make. They are also only available through foods in our diet. Food sources of omega-6 fatty acids include many vegetable and seed oils in commercial food use (e.g. soybean, safflower, sunflower and corn oils), nuts and seeds.
Arachidonic acid
 – a polyunsaturated fatty acid present in the phospholipids (especially phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine, and phosphatidylinositides) of membranes of the body's cells, and is abundant in the brain, muscles, and liver. In addition to being involved in cellular signaling as a lipid second messenger involved in the regulation of signaling enzymes, such as PLC-γ, PLC-δ, and PKC-α, -β, and -γ isoforms, arachidonic acid is a key inflammatory intermediate and can also act as a vasodilator.
