Anti-inflammation Test

Omega 3 Protection

Anti-Inflammation Tests evaluate the adequacy of omega 3 fatty acids as anti-inflammatory cardiovascular protectants.


  1.     Quantitative measurement of adequacy of omega 3 fatty acids as anti-inflammatory cardiovascular protectants
  2.     Measurement for cardiovascular risk
  3. Can be repeated in six months


This exam assesses risk for cardiovascular events by measuring the protective and anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 fatty acids in your body.

A diet rich omega-3 fatty acids, including also ocean fish rich EPA, DHA, and plant based alpha-linolenic acid helps to reduce inflammation and thus lowers the risks for cardiovascular disease.  On the other hand, omega-6 fatty acids such as AA and their metabolites are proinflammatory.

One anti-inflammation marker is the omega-3 index, which is the sum of EPA and DHA, expressed as a percentage of total phospholipid fatty acids.  Another anti-inflammatory marker is the EPA/AA ratio. When both markers are higher, the risks for cardiovascular events are lower.
