How fish oil & Omega-3 benefits overall well-being

Of all the dietary support available today, fish oil is one of the most widely used and enjoyed supplements. It’s especially common among people who don’t consume much seafood in general, as well as pregnant women. However, given the fact that the body doesn’t naturally make the Omega-3 essential fatty acids, everyone can benefit from taking these nutritional supplements.

Fish oil is essential

As the name suggests, this oil is the fat extracted from fish tissue, rich in Omega-3s, which include EPA, DHA, and DPA. The modern western diet contains more Omega-6 than Omega-3, which may distort the all-important ratio of fatty acids. The benefits of Omega-3 can’t be emphasized enough as our bodies need essential Omega-3 to function normally.

Fish oil is good for cholesterol and lower blood pressure 

Omega-3’s EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart1, the maintenance of blood triglyceride levels2, and blood pressure3.

Beyond cardiovascular health, Omega-3 supports the maintenance of normal brain function4 and vision5. Heart, brain, and eyesight protection, alone, is a reason enough to take fish oil. Zinzino’s BalanceOil+, however, makes it non-negotiable.

BalanceOil+ is based on a scientifically certified measure of pure fish oil, pre-harvest extra virgin olive oil and naturally sourced Vitamin D3. Designed to gently restore the body’s Omega balance, adjust, and maintain EPA and DHA levels, and protect cells from oxidative stress6, this is so much more than fish oil.

Omega-3 helps more than the heart, brain & cell health

It helps maintain blood calcium levels7, normal bones8, muscle function9, teeth10, cell division11, and immunity12. Better still, oleic acid gives additional support to the heart, with the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels13.

Enjoy all 15 EFSA-approved health benefits, with a simple daily dose of BalanceOil+ (that’s based on an individual’s BalanceTest results).

To maximize fish oil health benefits, quality matters

The Zinzino BalanceOil+ range contains sustainably sourced fish oil derived from small pelagic fish such as anchovies, sardines, and mackerel, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The product is certified by Friend of the Sea, the global certification standard for products and services that respect and protect the marine environment. It means that the fish oil is natural, molecularly tested for toxins to guarantee safety, freshness, and unparalleled purity. However, all high-quality, pure Omega-3 supplements go through a refining process that does not only rid the fish oil from contaminants, the polyphenols are lost, too. These powerful micronutrients packed with antioxidant capacities are naturally found in oily fish to stabilize oxidation, optimize absorption in the body and make sure the Omega 3’s get to work in the cell membranes of your body.

Extra virgin olive oil optimize absorption

Polyphenols from pre-harvest antioxidant-rich olives are the closest you’ll get to the ones found naturally in fish, and Zinzino was one of the first brands to add this antioxidant-packed ingredient to their scientifically proven formulation. The unique formulation of the Zinzino BalanceOil+ range is a synergistic blend based on 60% pure fish oil from wild-caught small fish and 40% cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oil with polyphenols from pre-harvest olives and Omega-9.

Every body is different and the level that your body will absorb the Omega-3 supplement also depends on individual factors, such as your weight, your stomach acid levels, gene type and even certain allergies. The Zinzino BalanceTest will reveal your unique fatty acid profile and guide you in choosing Omega-3 supplements that work with your body. Make sure to pick one such as BalanceOil+  that is safe, natural, and where serving sizes can be customized to your individual fatty acid profile.
