A fingertip blood sample is examined for 20 different values
Omega fatty acids are fats that have a significant impact on health and are often too small in the diet. Fatty acids have an effect, e.g. fat and sugar metabolism, low-grade inflammation, and brain well-being. The test examines their number and relationships in the body in the laboratory.
Biomed’s fatty acid analysis is easy to use, with a blood sample taken from the fingertip itself. The sample is allowed to dry and sent by post to a Finnish laboratory for analysis. You will receive the results in 2-3 weeks at your home by mail or as a security email. The package contains clear instructions.
The fatty acid analysis measures 20 important fatty acids, the amount and balance of which are important for the overall health of the body.
