Are you getting enough healthy omega-3s from your diet? From your supplement?
By now, it’s well recognized that a diet rich in Omega-3s has a range of health benefits ranging from heart health, healthy hair and skin to crucial brain development in children and aging adults.* You might be taking an Omega-3 supplement every day, but how do you know if it’s working or if you’re really getting enough? We went to Dr. Doug Bibus, a scientific advisor for Coromega and a clinical nutritionist, who helped explain how an individual’s Omega-3 level is determined and why you should know your number.
“Research shows that the majority of Americans are deficient in Omega-3s. According to Dr. Bibus, the optimum Omega-3 range is 8% or above, but the U.S. average is almost less than half of that at 4.2%! A study published in 2002 in The New England Journal of Medicine* suggests that Omega-3 blood levels at 6.87% are associated with a 90% relative risk reduction of sudden death from cardiac causes.
Getting tested for your omega-3 level is easy. A simple at home blood test will do the trick. Just like you would test for your cholesterol or vitamin D, testing you omega-3 blood level will give you the best sense of where you are and what you need to do to get to a healthy level. It will also tell you if you are getting enough omega-3s through your diet and if you are taking a supplement, is it working?
Coromega’s Omega-3 fish oil is emulsified for superior absorption. In fact, it’s clinically proven to have 3Xs better absorption than fish oil soft gels*. Why does that matter? Well, it means your body will absorb more of the healthy benefits and will help to boost your omega-3 blood level.
So do you fall in the in category of deficient or are you at a healthy level? If interested in testing your omega-3 blood level, please contact Coromega at firstname.lastname@example.org.
