Omega Test is a test of fatty acid concentration at the cellular level, which will facilitate the modification of the current diet and effective prevention of civilization diseases. Omega Test is the key to the proper functioning of every cell of the human body. Appropriate proportions of Omega fatty acids support the metabolism of the body in the fight against pathogenic processes.
Who is the Omega Test intended for?
Omega Test was created for people who:
- have increased susceptibility to infection
- they have states of depressed mood or, in extreme cases, depression
- they experience concentration disorders or have memory problems
- they are struggling with skin lesions
- have high cholesterol
- they are overweight or obese
- they are at risk of a heart attack, stroke, and suffer from hypertension
- they have fertility problems
- they are suffering from type II diabetes
- they suffer from other chronic illnesses
Description of the test
The Omega Test consists in determining and indicating the needs of the human body in Omega acids. Omega 6 fatty acids consumed in appropriate amounts support the body and its proper functioning. Unfortunately, their too large amount supplied with a daily diet may have the opposite effect. Too much Omega 6 fatty acid relative to other fats is the cause of chronic inflammation. Fat, which “abolish” the unfavorable effect of Omega 6 fatty acids are Omega 3 fatty acids. This type of fatty acids is consumed in daily human diet in deficient amounts, and only the appropriate proportions of individual fats relative to each other guarantee health, well-being, condition and appearance . The essence of maintaining balance is to identify and provide such doses of fatty acids that will provide the body with full health.
What are the types of fatty acids?
Fatty acids can be divided into those that the body can produce itself and those that must be delivered along with the daily diet. The first group includes saturated and monounsaturated fats, which are additionally in large quantities supplied with products of animal origin and certain vegetable oils (palm, coconut) and olive oil. The second group are polyunsaturated fats from the Omega 3 and 6 family, which are delivered to the body primarily with fatty marine fish, flax seeds, oilseed pits (sunflower, pumpkin seeds), nuts and vegetable oils (e.g. rapeseed oil, peanut oil, grape seeds).
The course of the test
- For performing the Omega Test dried blood spots analysis is used (DBS).
- During the visit, five drops of blood are taken from the patient, which are placed on a special transport card.
- The results are waiting for about 3 weeks, and on their basis a doctor or dietitian is able to prepare an appropriate diet and / or supplementation.
