Detecting Inflammation

What is Measured

Omega-6:Omega-3 EPA/AA

Key measurement for looking at levels of inflammation throughout your body

Omega-3's and 6's are essential in the diet since our body can not manufacture them on its own. Omega-6's also serve an important purpose and are more widely available in the diet, so there's a potential for imbalance between inflammatory and anti-inflammatory fats.

Optimal levels of omega-3's result in decreased inflammation which works to support cardiovascular health, cognitive function, mood, immune function, and provide nutrients for healthy skin, hair, and nails.

AA (Arachidonic Acid) from processed foods, fried foods, fatty cuts of animal protein can throw off our AA/EPA ratio leading to more inflammation in the body

  • Ideal ratio is estimated at ⅔:1 Omega-6 to Omega-3
  • For optimal health AA/EPA ratio is 5:1 or better
