At DNAfit, we have a strict inclusion protocol to evaluate whether a gene will be included in our reports. Each gene must have a minimum of 3-peer reviewed studies in humans demonstrating the effect, there must be a consensus on that effect, and that effect must be modifiable through an environmental and lifestyle change.
Below is a sample of our evidence base for omega-3 requirements:
Il6 gene promoter polymorphism (-174G/C) influences the associations between fat mass and cardiovascular risk factors
The ability of fish oil to suppress tumour necrosis factor a production by peripheral blood mononuclear cells in healthy men is associated with polymorphisms in genes that influence tumour necrosis factor a production
Effect of marine-derived n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on C-reactive protein, interleukin 6 and tumour necrosis factor a: a meta-analysis
