Macintosh computers store and display Omega 3-6 Balance Scores in Omega Meals and Omega Foods programs. Both help you identify the positive or negative impact that a food item will make on your health risk assessment biomarker.
Negative Scores have unwanted consequences as they raise the % omega-6 in HUFA. Foods with positive Scores have good effects as they raise the % omega-3 in HUFA. The changes can be measured by a simple blood test useful for health risk assessment.
Omega Meals estimates an overall average score for combinations of items in a daily food plan or recipe, and Omega Foods focuses on the score of each food item.
Tip: To check the operating system version on your Mac, Choose About This Mac from the Apple menu in the upper left of your screen.
Omega Meals helps you combine foods into personalized daily menu plans or in special recipes that can give a desired tissue HUFA balance. The software program includes short videos with advice for making plans for a New Person or a Known Person already in the database.
