Gene Smart(TM) Takes New Approach to Diet and Exercise to Live Longer, Healthier Lives
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The mismatch between today's typical diets and our genes has been a major contributor to the nation's health crisis, including obesity and chronic inflammatory disease.

Gene Smart is one of the few wellness programs proven to work in a clinical study.

Participants following the Gene Smart program lost weight, decreased whole body inflammation, reduced risk of disease, and reported improvements in mood and energy.
