Omega 3 and 6 Fats

Overview: The proper balance of these fatty acids is so crucial to our health that I had to write the skinny book on fat, Fat Free Folly. It not only covers this topic at length but also debunks some myths about fat in general and saturated fat in particular. Please consider getting a copy and sharing it with friends to help stop the demonization of fat that is actually a major contributor to the twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes.

Testing: No more guesswork about how much omega-3 you need or if your supplements are working! At this time, you can get an impressive discount by entering the code Martie 49.99 on the site omega3test.com. The list price is $200 (sometimes offered on sale for $160), but you can get it for just $49.99. That great deal is thanks to support from the supplement maker, Nordic Naturals.
