What are Omega 3 and Omega 6?
Omega 3 and Omega 6 are essential fatty acids. If you are deficient in either, you may experience symptoms including fatigue and mood swings, or more severe health concerns such as depression and circulatory problems. Our bodies do not produce Omega 3 or Omega 6 naturally, yet they each play a crucial role in cell creation, memory retention and blood pressure regulation. They can be significant in heart disease prevention and protection against some types of cancer.
It is important to maintain a healthy balance of Omega 3 and 6. Too much Omega 6 in relation to Omega 3, for instance, can have an impact on your body’s ability to control inflammation. Foods high in Omega 3 and 6 include some cooking oils, seeds and nuts.
What is the Better2Know Your Body home testing process?
Better2Know Your Body’s Omega 3 and 6 home test will detect the levels of these essential fatty acids in your system using a single blood sample. Your discreetly packaged home testing kit will include a small, purple topped tube for blood collection, a pathology form, three finger prick lancets, wipes and a free return envelope. We will also email you with clear, detailed instructions on how to safely and correctly take your sample. Once you have your blood sample, simply place it into the prepaid envelope provided and send it to one of our CPA accredited laboratories for fast and efficient analysis.
When will my home testing kit arrive?
Home tests ordered before 4pm, Monday to Friday, will be sent out on the same day in the first class post.
How will I receive my test results?
Your home test results will be ready four working days after your blood sample arrives at our laboratory. Results are extremely accurate and confidential. You access your results securely via the confidential patient log in area of our website. We will send you an email to let you know when they are ready.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When will you send my kit to me?
If your order is placed before 4pm on a working day, then it will be sent the same day. Otherwise it will be sent on the next working day.
Q: Why do you need my email address?
Your Patient Services Manager, Louise Wright, will email you your login details to access your results, a confirmation your kit has been dispatched and finally when all your results are ready. We do not sell on or email you any other marketing materials, that is why we do not ask you to opt in or out of anything.

No, but the postman does need to know where to deliver the kit to. As long as you use a name that will get the kit to you, then we do not need your real name.
Q: What if I do not want to pay by card?
Our payment reference on your card will show up as "health screen" so it will not link your purchase to Better2Know. If you do not want to pay by card then we can also accept PayPal and cash. Please call our Patient Services Team to arrange payment.
Q: What does the kit packaging look like?
It will arrive in plain white envelope with your typed name and address on it.
Q: What if I have any more questions?
You can email Louise by replying to one of the emails she has sent to you. She will do her best to answer them.
