Breath Test to Measure Breakdown of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Scientists at Pan Diagnostics Limited (PDL) have developed an easy-to-use breath test to measure the breakdown of omega-3 fatty acids due to oxidative stress.

Recent research has shown that deficiencies of omega-3, found primarily in fish oil, are linked to a wide range of conditions including: heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma and neurodevelopmental illnesses like  depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, dyspraxia and ADHD.  Research also shows that assisting in the treatment and prevention of these conditions with omega-3 supplementation can be extremely beneficial.

Using the Test Kit

So how do you tell if you have a deficiency of omega-3?  Try the Oxidative Stress Indicator.

The OSI can help identify if omega-3 is actually breaking down within your body.  The OSI measures ethane, which is formed when oxygen free radicals damage and destroy omega-3 fatty acids.  This process is called 'oxidative stress'The more ethane present in the breath, the more damage oxidative stress is doing to omega-3 fatty acids.  If left untreated, high levels of ethane can lead to a omega-3 fatty acid deficiency. 

Please note: You should always consult your Doctor or Healthcare Professional for advice on any of the conditions referred to in this website.

Ordering the OSI test

The OSI has been designed as a fun looking, bubble shaped bag and is easy to use.  The OSI is particularly effective for use with children and can be used with children as young as 3 years of age.  The OSI is for professional use only and can be arranged with the assitance of a healthcare professional such as your family GP or a nutritional therapist. 

Breath samples are returned back to the PDL laboratory for analysis, with easy to understand results posted out within two weeks. 

How much does it cost?

For the latest information concerning this product, contact details and prices, please visit the Ness Foundation Website. At time of creating this page, the OSI was available as a solo test at £49.95 (including VAT and post/packing)
