The Omega-3 Index Project™ was formed to
bring more awareness to omega-3 insufficiency,
which is a global health concern.

The ramifications of omega-3 insufficiency include higher rates of chronic disease—particularly heart disease—and billions of dollars in health care costs.

Measuring omega-3 levels regularly using the Omega-3 Index test will help consumers and patients to identify, correct and maintain healthy levels of these important nutrients and reduce their risk of chronic disease.

The good news is you can easily do something about it.

By taking simple dietary steps like increasing your consumption of foods or supplements rich in omega-3s EPA & DHA your Omega-3 Index will rise. You can choose from a variety of options such as omega-3-rich fish like salmon or omega-3 supplements like krill oil and fish oil.


Not all omega-3s are created equal.
ONLY the omega-3s EPA & DHA will
raise your Omega-3 Index.
