The Know Your Ω campaign, launching at the 2016 AAFP Family Medicine Experience (FMX), is designed to educate healthcare practitioners on the health benefits of EPA + DHA omega-3s.

“A large and growing body of evidence shows that insufficient levels of omega-3 EPA + DHA may be associated with serious health complications for many Americans,” ​said Michael McBurney, PhD, FACN, VP of Science, Communications and Advocacy, DSM Nutritional Products.

“Know Your Ω was developed with the healthcare practitioner in mind to provide a guiding resource that enables doctors to help protect their patients against the health risks associated with insufficient omega-3 levels and promote the health benefits of these vital nutrients to patients.” 

According to NHANES data, 96% of Americans are currently not consuming enough omega-3 EPA + DHA to reach cardioprotective levels. With 43.9% of U.S. adults projected to have some form of cardiovascular disease by 2030, it is imperative that doctors encourage their patients to achieve cardioprotective omega-3 levels, said DSM in a release.

“Know Your Ω is a resource that educates doctors on the dangers associated with omega-3 deficiency and supports omega-3 recommendation to help protect patients from cardiovascular disease and other health risks,” ​said the company.
