What does my Omega-6/Omega-3 ratio mean?
by Jerry Kramer | Jun 15, 2020
- The Omega-6/Omega-3 ratio (also written “n-6/n-3”) report provides analysis for 7 omega-6 fatty acids and 4 omega-3 fatty acids. This analysis is performed from your whole blood as opposed to red blood cell membranes like the Omega-3 Index. The total amount of omega-6s and omega-3s are divided by each other to get a ratio. We recommend a ratio of 3-5:1 (omega-6:omega-3). It will be displayed in the little blue circles and then on the scale in your report.
