Omega-3 Index tests your cardiovascular health
The Omega-3 Index is defined as the total concentration of EPA and DHA fatty acids in red blood cells, expressed as a percentage of total fatty acid content. It has been recognised since 2011 as a key biomarker for tracking global cardiovascular health and is used to indicate mortality risk by country. Despite being supported by robust scientific research, the omega-3 index in many parts of the world, including countries in Asia Pacific, remains low at less than 6%1. An index greater than 8% is regarded as optimal, with strong correlation to lower cardiovascular risk.
