Measurement & Calculations

Our calculations

  • 11 fatty acids are analyzed and the total sum of their amounts is considered 100%.
  • For the 6 values below we use 7 of the fatty acids.
  • The analyzed amount of each of the 7 fatty acids is calculated as a percentage out of the 100%.
  1. Omega-3 Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
  2. Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
  3. Omega-3 Docosapentaenoic acid (DPA)
  4. Omega-6 Arachidonic acid (AA)
  5. Omega-6 Dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA)
  6. Saturated fat, Palmitic acid (PA)
  7. Saturated fat, Stearic acid (SA)

 

The 6 result values 


Protection Value 
First, the following 3 recognized health indicators are calculated:
  1. The value for the Omega-6 ratio is calculated like this: (DGLA+AA) * 100 / (DGLA+AA+EPA+DPA+DHA)
  2. The value for the Omega-3 level is the sum of EPA+DHA
  3. The Balance value is calculated as Omega-6 (AA) / Omega-3 (EPA)

Each indicator value is given the same weight in a second calculation and assigned a value between 0 and 100, which is then divided by 3 to get the Protection Value that ideally should be above 90.  Note! EPA and DHA values have a high impact on all the calculations and if EPA and DHA percentages are low, then as a result very low or even zero Protection Values are not uncommon.

Omega-3 Index
The Omega-3 Index is the summary of the percentage values for the two marine Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The ideal combined level is at least 8%, but higher values like 10% are desirable.

Omega-6:3 Balance
The balance is calculated by dividing the percent value of AA with the percent value of EPA (AA / EPA), which is then expressed as a Balance value, for example 3:1. The Omega-6:3 Balance in the body should preferably be below 3:1.

Cell Membrane Fluidity  
Fluidity is calculated by dividing the percent value of the two saturated fats with the percent value of the two Omega-3’s. The fluidity value is thus defined as (PA+SA) / (EPA+DHA), and the result is expressed as a fluidity index, for example 3:1. If the fluidity value is below 4:1, it shows that there is sufficient fluidity in cell membranes.

Mental Strength

This is calculated by dividing the percent value of AA with the sum of the percent values of EPA and DHA, i.e. the Mental Strength value = AA / (EPA+DHA). The result is expressed as a mental strength value, for example 1:1. The value should be below 1:1 for sufficient and balanced supply of both Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids to the brain and the nervous system.
 

Arachidonic Acid (AA) Index 
The AA Index shows the measured value of the Omega-6 fatty acid Arachidonic acid (AA) as a percentage out of the total fatty acids measured. Good average values are in the range of 6.5 to 9.5% with an optimum target value of 8.3%.
