Below is an example of the Omega Blood Score Report. Unlike our competition, we include the full report at one low price. You get all the information you or your doctor could want for $32 less than the competitions equivalent test.
Definitions of key figures can be found below the report here
The report is based on 15 years of experience and recommendations from doctors and nutritionists.
The report is color coded and uses sliding scales to make it easy for you to know whether your omega-3 levels are good or should be improved.
Omega Blood Score Keywords and Definitions
Omega-3 Whole Blood Score: The healthier your heart, the higher your omegabloodscore. Your score is related to your risk of suddenly dying from a heart attack. The Omega Blood Score is the percentage of your fatty acids that are the good omega-3 fatty acids (sum of EPA, DPA and DHA).
Omega Blood Score = Good Omega 3’s (EPA+DHA+DPA) / Total Fatty Acids
Omega-3 Serum Equivalence Score: Your risk of developing heart disease as developed by the Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Centre. The Omega-3 serum equivalence score is an estimation of your total omega-3 levels in serum based on your whole blood omega-3 levels and a validated correlation method.
EPA + DHA Serum Equivalence Score: An indication of your risk of dying from a heart attack. The % of fatty acids in your serum comprised of EPA and DHA as derived from your whole blood DHA and EPA levels.
Omega Index: How likely you are to have a heart attack. The Omega Index measures the % of your red blood cells membrane that is composed of EPA and DHA as determined from whole blood.
Whole Blood: Blood as it naturally flows through your veins. Whole blood includes red blood cells, white blood cells, serum, cholesterol, lipoproteins (HDL, LDL, etc), coagulants, plasma and more.
Serum: The fluid blood cells flow in. Serum is whole blood with the blood cells and clotting factors (plasma) removed.
Red Blood Cell Membranes: The outer “shell” of a red blood cell. This flexible and fluid bilayer is partly made of phospholipids which contain omega-3s like EPA and DHA.
EPA: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is one of the most important and commonly marketed omega-3s due to it’s impact on cardiovascular health and inflammation. EPA is 20 carbons long with 5 double bonds.
DHA: Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is the most important fatty acid for the brain. DHA is the most abundant lipid in the brain and in the eyes. It is the longest fatty acid with the most double bonds, 22 carbons long with 6 double bonds.
