Omega 3/6 index
The Omega-3 Index has many features that qualify it as not only a biomarker of omega-3 intake, but also as a cardiovascular risk marker and most importantly, a risk factor and target for INTERVENTION.
Very few people are at an optimal level on the Omega-3 Index.
Some experts think this number approaches 90% here in the United States. In countries like Japan, where the average Omega-3 index is 8.5-9.5%, early sudden cardiac death is rare. Multiple prospective studies of cellular aging confirms that optimal levels of Omega 3 index are highly desirable.
