Up to 95% of women are deficient in Omega-3, and levels are often halved during pregnancy. An Omega-3 deficiency during pregnancy can lead to increased risk of pre-term labor. Postpartum Omega-3 deficiency can persist for years after pregnancy, impacting mama’s breastmilk DHA levels, brain function, mood and hormone balances, fertility, postpartum recovery, and more.
Testing your levels empowers you to better understand your unique Omega-3 needs, as a first step in optimizing you and your baby’s wellbeing.
Our simple and safe blood collection method does not require a full blood draw or a trip to the doctor. One drop of blood from a finger prick is all that's needed to assess your Omega-3 status.

Thoughtful inquiry is needed.
There is minimal physical risk to you from the finger prick. The prick may cause a small amount of pain and bruising, and the site may bleed slightly for a time after the blood is collected. There is also a very rare chance that the stick site could become infected. If this happens, you might require medical treatment.
There is a very small risk associated with the collection of confidential health information. However, we are making every effort to protect your identity.
If your Omega-3 Index level is below 5%, we suggest doubling-up the Omega-3 dosage for a period of several months. It is ideal to re-test your levels after 3-6 months of continuous, daily supplementation when your starting levels are sub-optimal.
The results of your test will be kept strictly confidential.
Your results from the test are personal and private. Records will be kept confidential to the extent provided by federal, state, and local law. Only relevant Needed and OmegaQuant team members will have the right to look at your individual test results and records.
Your results will be grouped with the results from other individuals’ tests into a study. Needed and OmegaQuant may share results of this study in marketing, meetings, journals or other forums, but your individual identity will remain secret.
