Science’s new, deeper look into balance involves the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids. Both omega-6 and omega-3 are essential for vital functions in our bodies. Problems occur when changes in our diets cause an imbalance. Too much omega-6 creates an imbalance. Too little omega-3, specifically bioavailable EPA and DHA, creates an imbalance. Find out if your ratio is balanced with Zinzino’s BalanceTest and then enjoy our BalanceOil and BalanceShake to help adjust your omega 6:3 ratio to its optimal balance.*
Zinzino’s BalanceTest is a simple, dried blood spot method for taking a test sample at home. Our certified laboratories in the Nordic countries analyze the sample to determine your fatty acid profile as a reflection of your diet. Find out more at www.ZinzinoTest.com.
Balance Your Body, Live Your Potential
A car needs fuel and oil to operate. It is exactly the same for our bodies - they need the right ingredients to function their best. Drink water, yes! Exercise, yes! Eat healthy, yes! We do our best, but what new findings has science made?

An Emerging Awareness
Our diet – the food we eat and the way we eat food – have changed dramatically the last 60 years in fundamentally harmful ways. Scientists and health authorities are increasingly alarmed about the imbalance in our fatty acid intake. In particular, the excessive consumption of omega-6 (plant oils and modern processed foods) vs. omega-3 fatty acids (from oily fish).
Balance vs. Imbalance
Balance refers to the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. Both omega-6 and omega-3 are essential for vital functions in our bodies. Problems occur when changes in our diets cause an imbalance. Too much omega-6 creates an imbalance. Too little omega-3, specifically bio-available EPA and DHA, create an imbalance. Before 1960, the ratio of omega 6:3, in the western world, was 4:1 or less. Leading health authorities (including the Norwegian Ministry of Health) recommend a ratio of 5:1 or less, to be in balance. The average in Europe today is 15:1, while in the USA it is often 25:1 or greater. Even people taking Omega-3 supplements are out of balance, with ratios of 20:1 in the USA and 7:1 in Europe. Even the most health-conscious people are discovering their omega ratio is out of balance.
Quality + Synergy = Results
BalanceOil is more than just fish oil. Our scientists have formulated BalanceOil for the best results. This includes selecting fish species, paying special attention to the EPA and DHA (bioactive omega-3 essential fatty acids) content, then combining it with a special, high-quality, high-polyphenol olive oil for the best synergy. Our formula, when used as recommended, is the reason BalanceOil and BalanceShake help adjust the omega 6:3 ratio to optimal balance levels.* Our data shows proven balance results (near 3:1 ratio), within 120 days. (See Proof of Balance on this page.)
Wild Fish Oil
Our wild fish oil is from sardines, anchovies and mackerel. The manufacturer of BalanceOil meets all regulatory requirements for production and follows GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices) for food and pharmaceuticals. Our products are non-GMO (i.e. free of genetically modified organisms).
Quality Olive Oil
BalanceOil contains a special cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil known for its high antioxidant polyphenol levels. Refined oils extracted from olives by heat or solvents, lack the same quality. The antioxidant content of BalanceOil helps protect against destructive oxidation, when it is exposed to oxygen in the air. This synergistic blend also helps ensure maximum absorption and benefit.*
Proof of Balance in 120 days
is one of Europe's leading private laboratories with cGMP standards and it has helped publish dozens of research studies. Vitas AS in Norway and other leading laboratories have processed more than 140,000 Balance Tests (June 2016). The average Omega 6:3 ratios for those not taking an Omega-3 supplement were 24:1 (USA) and 12:1 (Europe). The ratios were 15:1 (USA) and 7:1 (Europe) for those taking an Omega 3 supplement. After 120 days, BalanceOil users have an average ratio of 4:1 (USA) and 3.5:1 (Europe).
