Are you getting enough healthy fats?
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered to be particularly healthy fats. But in the modern diet we consume very little omega-3. This can become a problem: If the omega-6 fatty acids, the counterparts of omega-3, take over too much, there is more inflammation in the body and a higher risk of cardiovascular diseases.
The cerascreen® Omega 3 test is a home sampling and submission kit that allows you to analyse the composition of the fatty acids in your blood. A medical laboratory determines your omega-3 index and the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids inhibit inflammation in the body, omega-6 fatty acids promote it. Their interaction helps determine whether an inflammation-neutral state can develop in the body. A ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 of no more than 5:1 is recommended - but most people in Europe tend to have a ratio of 15:1, i.e. far too much omega 6.
A good ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 is said to have a positive effect on the blood vessels, the immune system and the distribution of nutrients in the body. So if you know the composition of your fatty acids and optimise them in a targeted way, you will promote your cardiovascular health and your defences.
Benefit from our expertise: cerascreen® is the market leader for medical sampling and submission kits in Europe, with 8 years of experience in test development and evaluation. We have developed more than 50 approved send-in test kits (medical devices), evaluated 250,000 samples and supply 19 countries.

As soon as your sample has been evaluated, you will receive your result report via the my cerascreen® app or your user account on our website. You can easily view the report on your smartphone, tablet or computer and read it in printed form if required.
Learn about the ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 in the lab analysis. Learn how to improve your omega-3 index through diet and supplements with concrete recommendations for action. You will receive extensive health information in which we go into detail about the interplay between fatty acids and health.
