Dr. Hyman’s Omega-3 Levels

Dr. Hyman’s Omega-3 Levels

WE HAVE ALL HEARD about the importance of healthy fats. The old “Eat fat, gain fat” paradigm is giving way to a new, more nuanced understanding of dietary fat. The evidence is in–some fats are essential for optimal health. And the king of the good fats are the omega-3’s. Unfortunately, approximately 99 percent of Americans are deficient in these critical fats. Recently, on The Dr. Oz Show, I discussed a revolutionary new home test you can take that provides you with a complete assessment of your fatty acid profile. I sent an email to many of you about this test as well. In fact, I was so excited about the test, I decided to take it myself. I thought I’d share my own results for those of you who are interested. Check them out here. The levels of omega-3 fats in your body are a key predictor that illustrates your risk of:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Neurological problems
  • Mood disorders
  • Skin problems
  • Arthritis
  • And much more …

I encourage all of you to take this test and see what your fatty acid levels are. If you are deficient, there are some simple interventions you can take that will be explained in the results email you receive from my nutritionists. Along with those recommendations you will get a complete breakdown of your fatty acid profile in simple terms anyone can understand. I hope you take this opportunity to move toward optimal health.
