Lipidomic analysis of cell membrane fatty acids
The analysis of membrane fatty acids allows to evaluate the extent of fatty acid absorption into the cell membrane of erythrocytes (red blood cells).
This provides an overall vision of the lipidomic status of erythrocytes (which have a mean life of four months) to monitor the efficacy of food supplements taken.
Moreover, the analysis of plasma fatty acids performed with PREVENT OMEGA 4you enables to evaluate the patient’s “current” lipidomic status at the time the blood sample is collected.
Since fatty acid levels in plasma are changeable, this lipidomic status strongly depends on fatty acid intake with diet on days preceding blood sample collection.
Data in the report can provide an indication of lipid imbalance, if present. This is useful for an early general assessment.
