This Omega Oil from Zinzino is on the very top of my Wellness Wish List.


“Inflammation is at the root of so many health concerns it’s hard to keep track.”

– Dr. Mark Hyman

Dr Hyman’s recommendations to deal with inflammation are to take a multivitamin/multimineral supplement, fish oil, and vitamin D, all of which help reduce inflammation.


So which Fish Oil then?

There are many clean, good quality fish oils to choose from. Read on to see why I choose Zinzino.

Zinzino BalanceOil+ is an innovative blend of oils derived from wild-caught small fish and pre-harvest extra virgin olive oil.

What/Who is Zinzino?

Zinzino is a global, Scandinavian-based company specializing in test-based, personalized nutrition with a growing portfolio of scientific and confidential blood spot tests and a proprietary range of all-natural, nutritional supplements to bring the world back into a state of balanced health.

Simply – personalized solutions driving the next generation of nutrition.

Out of their range of products and solutions, first on my and Mila’s wish list is the Zinzino BalanceOil & Test Kit.

Why am I so keen?

Nowadays the feeling in functional medicine is that all disease begins with chronic inflammation!

(And in the gut as Hippocrates famously stated so many years ago!).

I have a handle on my gut health – but inflammation is something I need to focus on.

While I eat an anti-inflammatory diet, my lifestyle is definitely NOT anti-inflammatory! Too little time outdoors and too much time behind the computer.

And my daughter Mila’s “Why’s”?

  1. Fatty acids are essential for the development of the brain, eyes and nerves in children.
  2. Mila gags every time I give her the unflavoured fish oil we currently use 
  3. Not all bodies are created equal, and children need specific dosage recommendations.

BalanceOil Tutti Frutti from Zinzino

Described as having a fresh aroma (so no gagging before it even gets into the mouth!) with hints of raspberry, mint, lemon, pear and lavender.

Today’s guidelines for recommended Omega-3 intake are based on adults’ needs and their fatty acid ratio.

Children have a higher rate of metabolism, an immature immune system and faster cell division, all of which impact their overall Omega ratio in the blood.

A weight chart is not always enough as a guide and that is why this test and oil designed for kids is so valuable.


You test, don’t guess!

What I like about the Zinzino Balance protocol is that it involves testing and I want to know what our Omega Status currently is.

“Why wander around in the dark when you can just turn the lights on?”

– Dr. Roberston,  Scientific Research Specialist, and Chief Product Officer at Zinzino 

Zinzino uses scientifically proven, independently managed dried blood spot testing to provide vital insights on your current health status.

Their BalanceTest offers a reading of 11 fatty acid levels in the blood, and the test result includes concrete, data-based recommendations for meaningful changes in both diet and exercise.

So, you know exactly where you stand, where you need to get to and then have the tools to get there.

Also – once you have arrived (hopefully within 3 months of using their products), you test again. If you have arrived at a balanced state – you can stop taking the products!

But, Omega oils are really one of the supplements you should aim to take on a continuous basis for wellness maintenance. Especially if you, like me, live a busy-life and are prone to stress.

“We have redefined the concept of Omega supplements and revolutionised the fish oil industry”

– Ørjan Sæle, Zinzino founder
