FAQs about the BalanceOil+
Bring your Body in Balance
Science’s new look at Balance involves the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Both are essential and vital to several functions in our bodies. The problem is the imbalance between these fatty acids created by changes in our diet in our modern world. Too much dietary Omega-6 in your body creates imbalance. A low intake of the essential Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA creates imbalance.
Question: Are you in the danger zone?
»95% of the people tested do not have the optimal balance«
Zinzino Balance Oil stands out from other Omega-3 supplements on the market for two main reasons. The first is that the Omega-3 in the Balance Oil is highly bioavailable due to the inclusion of polyphenols. The second is the fact that Zinzino actually proves the efficiency and effectiveness of the product through a simple home blood test.
Zinzino Balance Oil content
Zinzino BalanceOil is a synergistic blend of high-grade fish oil, rich in the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, with specially selected extra virgin olive oil with a high content of polyphenols. BalanceOil safely adjusts and maintains EPA+DHA levels and the Omega-6:3 balance in your body
What are the benefits of zinzino balance oil?
Zinzinos’ Balance oil will in 4 month bring your Omega-6:3 in balance with a ratio of 3:1. This is the balance where our genes and body are designed to work at it best and the balance where the immune system is not overloaded.
What is an Omega 6/Omega 3 balance?
Balance omega-3 with omega- 6 in your diet. In the typical western diet, the average ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is 15:1, and can be as disproportionate as 25:1. This is a problem. The ideal ratio is closer to 3:1 and an overabundance of omega-6 fatty acids causes excess inflammation in the body.
The importance of the ratio of omega-6/omega-3 essential fatty acids
Several sources of information suggest that human beings evolved on a diet with a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids of approximately 1 whereas in Western diets the ratio is 15/1. Western diets are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, and have excessive amounts of omega-6 fatty acids compared with the diet on which human beings evolved and their genetic patterns were established. Excessive amounts of omega-6 and a very high omega-6/omega-3 ratio, as is found in today's Western diets, promote the pathway of many diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, whereas increased levels of omega-3 (a low omega-6/omega-3 ratio) exert suppressive effects.
In the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease,
A ratio of 2.5/1
reduced rectal cell proliferation in patients with colorectal cancer, whereas a ratio of 4/1 with the same amount of omega-3 had no effect.
A ratio of 2-3/1
suppressed inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
A ratio of 4/1
was associated with a 70% decrease in total mortality
A ratio of 5/1
had a beneficial effect on patients with asthma, whereas a ratio of 10/1 had adverse consequences.
These studies indicate that the optimal ratio may vary with the disease under consideration. This is consistent with the fact that chronic diseases are multigenic and multifactorial. Therefore, it is quite possible that the therapeutic dose of omega-3 fatty acids will depend on the degree of severity of disease resulting from the genetic predisposition. A lower ratio of omega-6/omega-3 fatty acids is more desirable in reducing the risk of many of the chronic diseases of high prevalence in Western societies, as well as in the developing countries, that are being exported to the rest of the world.
What Are the Differences Between EPA and DHA?
Benefits of EPA
The ultimate goal of using omega-3 is the reduction of cellular inflammation and for a number of reasons EPA becomes more important to reduce cellular inflammation. In short, EPA essential chokes off the supply of enzymes for Omega-6. If you have adequate levels of EPA to compete with Omega-6 (AA) you will reduce the release of Omega 6 (AA) from the cell membrane and then you prevent inflammation.
There are not high levels of EPA in the brain, but EPA is the key for reducing neuro-inflammation by competing against Omega 6 (AA) for access to the same enzymes needed to produce inflammatory hormones. However, once EPA enters the brain it is rapidly oxidized. This is not the case with DHA. The only way to control cellular inflammation in the brain is to maintain high levels of EPA in the blood. This is why all the work on depression, ADHD, brain trauma, etc. have demonstrated EPA to be superior to DHA.
Benefits of DHA
One of the key benefits of DHA lies in its unique structure. DHA is slightly longer than EPA and does a great job of making Cell membranes (especially those in the brain) a lot more fluid as the DHA sweeps out a much greater volume in the membrane than does EPA. This increase in membrane fluidity is critical for increasing the transmission of signals from the surface of the membrane to the interior of the cells.
EPA and DHA do different things, so you need them both, especially for the brain. If your goal is reducing cellular inflammation, then you need more EPA than DHA.
Question: Do I need Omega-3 and Omega-6?
Both omega-3s and omega-6s are used in the body for energy, but they also play other important physiological roles. Together, both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are an essential part of the cell membrane that surrounds every cell in the body, but individual forms also play more specific roles: for example, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an important component of skin and the retinas in your eye, and also plays a role in brain development.
Another important role of both omega-3 and omega-6 fats is in our immune system. Though these two forms of fat are very similar, they appear to have very different roles when it comes to helping protect us from infection and disease.
