The Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Bloodspot is a simple and easy way to measure fats that increase or decrease inflammation – the root cause of most diseases – and affect overall health.

Simple changes to your diet can improve chronic struggles like aches and pains and skin rashes and protect your heart and brain. Working with your healthcare provider on correcting fatty acid imbalances can greatly improve long-term health risks.

Who needs this test?

Fatty acid imbalances can cause many symptoms. Testing is ideal for people who want help with:

  • COPD
  • PCOS

    What’s the connection with fat and inflammation?

    Fats are in every cell of your body and they can either cause inflammation or help to stop it. Balance is key and remember, you are what you eat! ???? ???? ????

    Inflammation disrupts cell function and can harm your overall health. If you eat the wrong types of fats for a long time, your cells can become damaged and send distress signals to your body. This can lead to conditions like obesity and diabetes.

How will this test help me?

Fatty acid testing results show imbalances that can be fixed with diet and/or supplements. Your results offer insight on:

Disease Risk

An imbalance of omega-3s and omega-6s can increase risk of heart disease. Even with a healthy diet, you may still be falling short.

Vitamin Needs

Lower levels of some omega-3s and omega-6s may show a need for B vitamins or minerals instead of more fat.


The presence of inflammation may indicate poor dietary choices, such as too much fast food or red meat.

Pain Relief

Reducing inflammation and improving nutrition may lead to a decrease in pain levels and a decreased reliance on pain medication.


Reducing stress on your cells caused by fatty acid imbalances can allow increased blood flow and boost your physical performance.

Metabolic Health

Making changes to your diet or supplements based on results can help stabilize insulin and create better blood sugar balance.
