Omega 3 fatty acids are the "good fats" found in oily fish, nuts and seeds that can help to protect the body against heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol and rheumatoid arthritis.
Omega 6, when eaten in moderation as part of a healthy diet is good for you. Too much omega 6 can cause high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Omega 6 is found in polyunsaturated foods such as butter and vegetable oils.
Fatty acids prevent irregular heartbeats, reduces the risk of clotting by making the blood less sticky, protects the walls of blood vessels from damage and helps to improve cholesterol by increasing levels of good cholesterol (HDL) and decreasing levels of bad cholesterol (LDL).
Symptoms of Omega 3/6 Deficiency may include:
- Dry skin and hair
- Brittle nails
- Poor attention and/or concentration
- Heightened sleep disturbances
- Joint pain and discomfort
The Omega test examines the blood for arachidonic acid (ARA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), by identifying levels of ARA and DHA, the test can determine whether you have an optimal ratio of Omega 3 and 6 in the system for good health.
