Test your Omega-3 Index at Home

We like using the OmegaQuant HS Omega-3 Index Test Kit to determine omega-3 status for our patients. The test is done by  OmegaQuant  a CLIA-certified, reference laboratory that specializes in measuring essential fatty acids, concentrating specifically on EPA and DHA. 

OmegaQuant’s uses a special proprietary test, OmegaQuant HS Omega-3 Index Test Kit. This test is backed by 30 years of research done by Dr. William Harris. We utilize this test in determining our patients’ cardiovascular risk relative to omega-3s.  

Dr. Harris has currently published 28 studies in prestigious medical journals using the OmegaQuant HS Omega-3 Index Test. The test is currently being used in the Framingham Offspring Study and also the Women’s Health Initiative Memory Study.  One major study that used a very similar test to the HS Omega-3 Index® was the Physicians Health Study, which found that the “risk for sudden cardiac death was reduced by about 90% in those subjects with the highest blood omega-3 levels compared with those with the lowest levels.”

The OmegaQuant HS Omega-3 Index is a risk factor that is independent of the standard cardiovascular risk factors such as cholesterol.

Knowing the HS Omega 3 Index Test is very beneficial because it uncovers a deadly, but readily corrected deficiency in our patients.  We feel it is a great value to our patients overall health.
You can order the kit online through WebVitamins and determine your own Omega-3 Index.

The advantages of having the Omega-3 Index test include:

  • The HS-Omega-3 Index® is proven, accurate, and precise and can uncover unknown risk.
  • Results will be available within 5-10 business days of after OmegaQuant receives the results.  
  • The test can be done with dried blood spot cards at home with a pin prick included in the test.
  • OmegaQuant developed the HS-Omega-3 Index Test in 2004 and is competitively priced.
