The AA:EPA Ratio test measures the ratio of the amount of the omega-6 fatty acid arachidonic acid (AA) and the omega-3 fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in the cells. This test is a measurement of the amount of bad fats to good fats in the cells, and it can be an indication of the amount of cellular inflammation in the body, since AA is pro-inflammatory and EPA is anti-inflammatory.

The Omega-6:Omega-3 Ratio test is another way to measure the amount of bad fats to healthy fats in the body. Both tests can provide guidance to specific dietary changes that could support improvements in chronic inflammation and disease.

These tests are only available as an add-on to your Omega-3 Index test, and uses the same samples provided on the Omega-3 Index blood spot card. This test is available in combination with the purchase of a vitamin D test only.
