The gauges are meant to display the ratio of the two nutrients listed below each gauge.
For example, an Omega 6:Omega 3 ratio of 10:1 means that for every 10 grams of Omega 6 there is 1 gram of Omega 3.
You can look at the gauge above as the value of the first nutrient divided by the value of the second nutrient. Using the same example 10/1 = 10. This number is displayed at the bottom of the gauge. Increasing omega 3 will reduce this number, or if you are planning your food for the future, reducing omega 6 will also reduce the ratio.
These nutrients interact with one another, so keeping your intake in the green zone of the nutrient balance gauge will optimize the amount of each nutrient you can use.
