HOUSTON, June 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guardion Health Sciences, Inc. ("Guardion" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:GHSI) announced an agreement with OmegaQuant Laboratories ("OmegaQuant") to provide Guardion with analytic testing and laboratory support services for current and future products. Guardion is a clinical nutrition company that offers a portfolio of science-based, clinically-developed products that are designed to support the health needs of consumers, healthcare professionals and providers and their patients.

OmegaQuant is an independent, CLIA-certified laboratory located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota that offers an extensive suite of clinical tests to researchers, clinicians and the public, including Omega-3 Index, Vitamin D, Prenatal DHA and Mother's Milk DHA testing. OmegaQuant performs fatty acid analysis for commercial and academic research collaborators and for consumers interested in monitoring their nutritional status in both blood and breast milk. The Omega-3 Index tests measure all the fatty acids in the blood, and reports levels of all 24 fatty acids, as well as the Omega-3 index, Ratios, and the Trans Fat Index.

"This relationship with OmegaQuant positions us to conduct a variety of research projects around both our current product lines, as well as to evaluate future products for efficacy," commented Bret Scholtes, Guardion's Chief Executive Officer. "While we are still in the early stages of the relationship, we anticipate applying the Omega-3 Index test to advance the science of our current products, including the recently launched Omega Boost 1,200 mg Omega-3 Gel Bites recently launched under the Guardion flagship Viactiv® brand."

"We look forward to launching research projects with Guardion as we have with several top institutions such as Harvard University and the NIH, as well as with multiple healthcare businesses," added Jason Polreis, OmegaQuant's Chief Executive Officer. "Our proprietary standardized and validated testing helps organizations and individuals through their doctors better understand blood chemistry and the impact that fatty acid composition may have on overall health."
