About Diet and lifestyle plus omega 3 and 6

What is the diet and lifestyle check plus omega 3 and 6?

How you feel is affected by a wide range of factors that contribute to health and wellbeing. Some of these factors may be genetic but many are within your control. Diet, drink and exercise don’t just affect the way you look and feel, they have a drastic effect on many processes in the body which can be measured by changes in biomarkers.

The diet and lifestyle check plus omega 3 and 6 offers everything in the standard test with the addition of your omega 3 and 6 ratios.

Omega 3 and 6 are polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are generally considered to be beneficial for health. Just as important as the amount of these fatty acids is the ratio of the two, with the ideal ratio being between 1:1 and 1:4 (omega 3/6), as it is the diet humans evolved with. The UK diet generally consists of plenty of omega 6, whilst omega 3 is scarce, found mainly in oily fish and flaxseeds. This leads to typical ratios of closer to 1:16.

Improved ratios of omega 3 to omega 6 can reduce the risk of autoimmune diseases, heart disease and chronic inflammation.
