Inflammation Test

Measure Your Omega-3 to 6 Levels to Assess Inflammation
Includes Lab Results Explanation Video From Dr. Cabral

Inflammation is natural. It helps us fight infections and digest food, and maintain a healthy equilibrium. Many things can alter the levels of fatty acids in your body, the indicators of inflammation. An unbalanced diet, compromised microbiome, and even stress can alter the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. If unchecked, inflammation can be very harmful to heart health. But before you start trying new diets and lifestyle changes, first you need to know where you stand. The Omega-3 & Inflammation test checks important ratios of fatty acids in the blood to monitor and evaluate your unique levels of inflammation.

You will received a video from Dr. Cabral that will provide you with a detailed explanation of how to understand your individual results.

Finding Balance

What is Measured

Inflammatory Markers

The ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids as indicators of overall inflammation in the body.

Omega-3's and 6's are essential in the diet meaning that our body can not manufacture them on its own. Omega-6's serve important purposes, however they are more widely available in the diet, therefore we often see on this test that there is an imbalance between inflammatory and anti-inflammatory fats.

Omega 6's are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), which tend to accumulate in the body over time. Western diets especially are extremely high in linoleic acid and other Omega 6's. The amount of omega-6 fatty acids found in body fat stores has increased by more than 200% in the past 50 years with the introduction of cheap vegetable oils. Currently, average body fat storage of Omega 6s to Omega 3's is around 15:1

Omega 3 fatty acids are found in animal products as well as certain seeds like chia and flaxseed. Boosting Omega 3 fatty acids can reign in the ratio of proinflammatory Omega 6's.

An ideal ratio is around 5:1 Omega 6s to Omega 3, but we recommend an even lower ratio of 3:1 for optimal health.

Can’t say much

Sent my omega 3 blood test back two weeks ago and still waiting for the results.

Inflammation Test

The test came with only 2 finger prickers, that was not enough to generate enough blood to fill the 4 circles. One pricker / finger would be easier and raise the quality of your product.

Easy to administer

Easy to poke and easy to dab onto the paper...just mailed back yesterday so far so good...will see when the results come back

DOB

It’s really hard to put in your date of birth especially if you are 66 years old. You have to go back sixty six years. Is there an easier way
