• Saturated fatty acids in your red blood cell membranes are not related to the saturated fat you consume in your diet. Typically, saturated fat in your diet raises blood cholesterol levels. Our tests look at specific patterns of fatty acids and not the specific amount of cholesterol in your bloodstream. So when you receive your Omega-3 Index Complete report and you notice your saturated fatty acid level is high, please keep in mind that this has no relation to your cholesterol level.
