Testing Made Simple

The Omega Blood Score test is a simple finger-prick diagnostic that will gauge the levels of these essential fatty acids, using samples of whole blood to confirm levels of EPA, DHA and other fatty acid levels. These levels and their ratios correspond to heart disease and death from heart attack risk reduction.

Most people don't get enough Omega-3 fatty acids in their diet. Are you?

Omega-3 Whole Blood Score

“Whole Blood scores in the highest quartile (6.1% - 10.2%) were associated with an 80% lower risk of sudden death compared to individuals with whole blood scores of 2.1% - 4.3%.”
Your risk of sudden cardiac death can be estimated from the Omega-3 Whole Blood Score, which measures omega-3 fatty acid content as a percentage of your total whole-blood fatty acid composition. This score is the sum of EPA, DPA, and DHA in a whole blood sample. Based on work from the Harvard School of Public Health, the collection of these fatty acids correlates to the risk of sudden death in people with no history of cardiovascular disease. The scale provides four separate quartiles. Your report will indicate whether you are currently at Very High Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, or Low Risk, according to the risk reductions identified by the Harvard researchers. If your levels fall in the Low Risk category (i.e., 6.1%-10.2% of total fatty acids), this reflects a desired reduction in risk for sudden cardiac
death by 80% compared to the Very High Risk category.

Omega-3 Serum Equivalence Score

“An Omega-3 Serum Equivalence Score ≥7.2 is associated with a 32% reduction in heart disease compared to a score of <5.0.” This score is the sum of all omega-3 fatty acids as measure in whole blood, and derived by validated calculations to yield the equivalent sum in serum. Your overall risk for developing heart disease can be estimated from the Omega-3 Serum Equivalence Score. Based on work by researchers at the Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center in San Francisco, this score provides a simple two-way assessment of an individual’s overall risk for heart disease. When this value is greater than 7.2% of total fatty acids in a serum sample, there is an associated reduction in risk of heart disease as compared to levels below 5.0%. Your score is plotted on a graph indicating your current risk category for development of heart disease. If your levels fall in the Low Risk zone, this reflects a desired reduction in risk of heart disease by 32% compared to the Risk category.

EPA + DHA Serum Equivalence Score

“An EPA + DHA Serum Equivalence Score ≥4.6 is associated with a 70% reduced risk of death from fatal ischemic heart disease as compared to a score of <3.5.” This score is the sum of EPA and DHA as measure in whole blood, and derived by validated calculations to yield the equivalent sum of EPA and DHA in serum. Your risk of dying from ischemic heart disease (heart attack) can be estimated from the EPA+DHA Serum Equivalence Score, which represents the total percent of fatty acids comprised of EPA and DHA in serum. This score is based on research from the Cardiovascular Health Research Unit at the University of Washington in Seattle. They found a significant reduction in the risk of death from heart attack for people with total EPA and DHA values of 4.6% or greater, when compared with those whose total values were less than 3.5%. If your levels fall in the Low Risk category on the colored scale, this reflects a desired reduction in risk of fatal ischemic heart disease by 70% compared to the Risk category.
