Essential Fatty Acids

Fatty acids are important nutrients derived from fats in our diet, but obtaining an optimal balance of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fats isn’t easy with current dietary choices. Fatty acids are required for energy storage, and are incorporated in to every cell membrane so they have wide-ranging functions; deficiencies or imbalances have been associated with many health conditions. Biolab offers a profile that measures the levels of omega-6, omega-3 and other fatty acids as a tool for assessing the utilisation of dietary fats. Minerals and vitamins are also required in the metabolism of fats and are essential for the normal utilisation of fatty acids.
