Maintaining an Omega-3 Index (O3I) of 8% or above is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and sudden cardiac death.
An O3I of 8% or above is also associated with better asthma control, lower inhaled corticosteroid medication dose, and lower systemic inflammatory markers, suggesting that n-3 PUFA may have a role in asthma management.
