Why measure breast milk omega-3s?

  • Omega-3 DHA is an important component of a baby’s developing brain
  • Baby’s best source for nutrition, including DHA, is breast milk
  • Breast milk can be very low in DHA
  • Moms can increase the amount of DHA in their breast milk through diet and/or supplements
  • The amount of DHA in the blood is related to the amount in breast milk, and moms can begin to increase their DHA levels during pregnancy
  • The only way to know how much DHA your baby is getting through breast milk is by measuring it – with the Mother’s Milk DHA Test.

Additional Information / Instructions

Omega Index:

The Omega-3 Index is the result of Dr. William Harris's 30 years of research in fatty acids and cardiovascular disease. The Omega-3 Index is a measure of omega-3 fatty acids, EPA+DHA in red blood cells, which relates to risk for heart disease and chronic illness.

Omega Quant's Full Fatty Acid Profile is a simple dried blood spot analysis, which is simple and safe, requiring just one drop of blood.
