Omega-3 Index Test Kit for Consumer-Sponsored Research Participation
Are you deficient in omega-3s? These essential fatty acids (DHA and EPA) play critical roles in cognitive development and learning, visual development, immune strength, inflammatory function, brain health and so much more. They affect every one of your hundred trillion cell membranes. Unfortunately, your body doesn’t produce omega-3s on its own, which means you must consume enough DHA and EPA fatty acids and/or supplement to help meet your body’s needs.
Unfortunately, you can’t tell by looking in a mirror if you are deficient in omega-3s. The only real way to know if you are deficient in these crucial nutrients is to get tested.
We are now offering an exclusive test kit that analyzes omega-3 levels. This third-party test kit is part of a consumer-sponsored research project directed by GrassrootsHealth, aimed to gather information on the population’s omega-3 levels to better understand this nutrient and individual deficiencies. It’s the largest project in the world that helps inform the public about their individual nutritional statuses and allows scientific researchers to study the links between these nutrients.
As a contributor to this research, you’ll learn your own omega-3 index levels, which will help you make better decisions about your health and nutrition. It’s a win-win for all — test your blood now, contribute to this important research, learn your levels, take corrective action, and then test again in three to six months to see how your levels have changed.
The omega-3 index is a measure of the omega-3s in your red blood cells and is the best way to measure these levels, because the fatty acids are found in red blood cell membranes. It is in the cell membranes where the omega-3 fatty acids do all their work. Find out where your levels are by participating in this study today!
Simply follow the directions in the kit to collect the small blood samples, mail it in, and fill out a quick and easy online health questionnaire through GrassrootsHealth.
Your participation and sharing of your results enables researchers to inform the public about the status of omega-3s in the population.
After filling out the questionnaire, you will receive an email when your test results are ready. This is usually within 10 to 20 days after receipt of your sample.
This Omega-3 Index Test Kit includes:
1 blood spot cards
1 envelope for returning the card
1 gauze pad, 2 band aids and 1 alcohol swab
