A principle of the Gene Smart Anti Inflammatory Diet & Exercise Program is to Add Omegas, which includes consuming 1,250 – 1,500mg of the omega 3s EPA & DHA per day by eating high omega 3 foods, especially high omega 3 fish and taking a premium quality Omega 3 Fish Oil Supplement.  Each person metabolizes omega 3 foods differently.  You can personalize this recommended level by checking your Omega 3 Index with the Gene Smart Omega 3 Index Home Blood Test Kit. The test also provides a measure of your Omega 6 to Omega 3 Ratio which is associated with whole body inflammation and numerous chronic inflammatory diseases.
