Omega 3 Test Experts Welcome Study Linking Omega 3 Levels and Adult Deaths

Leading fish oil research company Glasgow Health Solutions has welcomed the results of the first ever scientific study which links fish consumption, death rates and cardiovascular disease. The firm, in partnership with Stirling University, has created a unique finger prick blood tests to measure Omega-3 and Omega-6 levels in the blood. The test helps users to monitor the balance of the two most important Omega fats in their body and could be a life saver by promoting them to make the necessary dietary changes so as to match the results of the results of the recent study by the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the University of Washington.

In the first research of its kind, the US scientists were able to link omega-3 levels and adult deaths. The study found that older adults with higher blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids from fish and seafood had a 25% less chance of dying prematurely than those with low omega-3 levels. Those who ate oily fish twice per week could live up to two years longer, with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids also found to reduce the likelihood of dying from coronary heart disease by as much as 40%, heart arrhythmias by 45% and strokes.

A spokesman from Omega Blood Count said, “Although dieticians and medical experts have again been able to prove the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids but this time by measuring the levels of Omega-3 in the blood. The results of the study are incredibly useful and show just how important a role omega-3 in the blood plays on health and life expectancy. The figures are incredible with massive reductions of as much as 45% in the risk of some common causes of death simply by maintaining optimum levels of omega-3 in the body.”

The Omega Blood Count kit is a simple, breakthrough test which can be used at home. It is scientifically validated by omega-3 experts and healthcare professionals for complete peace of mind. The test measures the vital balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats in the body, taking the guess work out of omega-3 supplementation. After taking the test, the sample is sent back to Omega Blood Count who provide a complete report with clear and detailed instructions should any dietary changes be needed. The test can be repeated when food habits and supplements change, allowing the user to see whether or not their lifestyle changes have been sufficient.

The test can be ordered online and used immediately. To find out more, visit
