How to take your Omega supplement

With the incredible health benefits from Omega-3, it’s important to be strategic about your intake. From supporting normal brain1 and heart function2, to maintaining healthy vision3 and blood pressure4, upping your Omega-3 is one of the best tools in your health arsenal.

Fish and other natural Omega-3 sources should be your first option to capture these benefits. However, it might be difficult to gain the appropriate amount of this essential nutrient through food alone and you might need to support your nutrition by taking supplements.

BalanceOil+ is Zinzino’s hero in its test-based personalized nutrition strategy. The Polyphenol Omega Balance food supplement, high in olive polyphenols and Vitamin D3. A pure, non-GMO blend of oils derived from wild-caught small fish and pre-harvest, extra virgin olive oil, it supports normal immunity5, protection against oxidative stress6, as well as healthy blood calcium levels7, bones8, muscle function9, teeth10, and cell division11.

Use BalanceOil+ to improve your health with natural, science-based nutrition products that are customized to your body. Empower your health by using fish oil in your daily routine. As it is a liquid food supplement, there are endless ways to take your BalanceOil+.

15+ EFSA-approved health benefits, without the fishy taste

Gift your body 2,500 mg of Omega-3 (of which 1,300 mg EPA, 700 mg DHA and150 mg DPA) and 700 mg of Omega-7 for every 12ml serving… Here are five of the most popular ways to balance your body from within, without compromising on flavor.

On its own

Get your nutrients in on an empty stomach as soon as you wake up. Just pour your dose into a glass and take it, while the coffee machine is heating up. It feels good knowing you’re starting the day having already done something good for your health. 

As a #BalanceShot

Prefer to get your food supplements out of the way, first thing in the morning? Put your bottle of BalanceOil+ right next to the coffee machine so you don’t forget. While you’re preparing your first cup, pull out the shot glass and take your daily dose – 1/3 BalanceOil+ and 2/3 water or juice for the perfect #BalanceShot

In an Omega-3 smoothie recipe

If smoothies are your breakfast preference, add your BalanceOil+ dose as one of your ingredients. When it comes to vitamins for smoothies, the options are endless. BalanceOil+ perfectly complements any fruity or nutty concoction you whip up.

The Zinzino community loves to use turmeric, kale, spinach, blueberries, strawberries, Greek yogurt, lemon, cucumber, banana, orange, ginger, cayenne, chia, flaxseeds, avocado, beetroot, apple, oats, cacao, mint, and carrot. Put your bottle of BalanceOil+ with your smoothie ingredients. This is the easiest way to pack all these nutrients in, as well as the 15+ BalanceOil+ health benefits.

With water, juice or kombucha  

Start your day with a glass of lemon water, juice, kombucha or just water (and AquaX or BalanceOil+). AquaX is in the BalanceOil+ family of products but differs with its AquaCelle® ingredient – a self-micro-emulsifying delivery system  – which dissolves in water. Enjoy better texture, taste and absorption compared to other Omega-3 products. Pour your specific BalanceOil+ dose, mix it with your favourite drink. You’ll forget there’s fish oil in it.

In softgels

Sometimes, it’s more convenient to group all your food supplements together. Take Essent+, the softgel version of BalanceOil+. The naturally sourced ingredients even extend to the casing, as the capsules are made from fish gelatin. There are a couple of standout ingredients in Essent+ compared to the liquid supplement – cacao powder and pure anchovies, a triglyceride concentrate that contains 85% EPA and DHA.

You’ll likely create your own ways to consume BalanceOil+ or Essent+, but this list is a good place to start. Take the guesswork out of healthier living. Decide when you’d prefer taking your fish oil, morning or afternoon, then pick your ingredients to make it a fun part of your daily routine. Find your balance and stick to it.
