ARE YOU READY TO PUT YOUR BODY TO THE REAL TEST?

Early detection and prevention is health beneficial as well as cost and time effective, when compared to treating disease!

Health Promotion & Disease Prevention starts at the cellular level!

Most modern health and wellness approaches have some form of evidence based tests that measure Body Strength, Core-Fitness, Endurance, Heart-Rate, Blood-Pressure, Blood-Sugar, Cholesterol, Lung-Capacity, VO2-Max, Grip-Strength, BMI, Body-Fat Ratio, Calories & Hydration, or the C-reactive Protein test to give you some examples.  

None of these tests will actually measure YOUR

Body´s Essential Fatty Acid Composition! 

Your Essential Fatty Acids are however vital to your long-term health an disease prevention, and having a for YOU correct Omega 3 to Omega 6 Balance Ratio can normalize your health, optimize your immune system and reduce your risk for chronic disease. 

Re-balancing and determining your personal body Omega-3 and Omega-6 ratio has never been that easy. Zinzino´s Balance Test is a dried blood spot test that provides information about the balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids in your blood. From your test report, you will also learn about your Omega-3 Index, Protection Value, Cell Membrane Fluidity, Mental Strength and more.

This Home-Testing Kit is simple to use and takes less than a minute to complete which you can do from the comfort of your home. It allows you to identify whether your body maintains a healthy balanced Omega-3 & 6 ratio of 1:3, or if you require topping up on your Omega-3 levels. 

When scrolling past the video of Dr. Colin and recommended Blog-Post readings, you will find the full scientific disclosure of what a Balance Test analyses.

  1. Easy-to-use dried blood spot self-test
  2. Analyses 11 fatty acids in your blood

Detailed Information on the Balance Test below

A Certified Test Kit

The Zinzino Dried Blood Spot Test is certified to comply with the European regulation 98/79/EB on in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical devices. This means the test and all its components are in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

It is an easy self-test for analysing the fatty acids found in capillary blood obtained from a fingertip using the Dried Blood Spot (DBS) technique.

A DBS-Test is scientifically proven to be as accurate as a venous blood sample when fatty acids are to be analysed. All it requires is a few drops of blood from the fingertip on a Whatman® filter paper, and it takes less than a minute to complete.

INDEPENDENT LABORATORY

Your ZinZino BalanceTest will be analysed by VITAS Analytical Services in Norway which is an independent and GMP-certified laboratory. They have a proven track record of with over 25 years of experience for chemical and high-quality chromatographic analysis and use modern cutting edge technology.  

VITAS Analytical Services will anonymously analyse the percentage content of 11 fatty acids, which together represent approximately 98% of the fatty acids in the blood and the values reflect your diet for the last 120 days, which is the lifetime of blood cells. The result is then displayed, after about 10-20 days, on the zinzinotest.com website.

On taking the test will receive a card displaying unique ID Number, which you must not lose! Neither the lab nor Zinzino will know who submitted the test. At zinzinotest.com your results will be displayed when you enter your BalanceTest ID. If you have completed the questionnaire, you will have access to the complete analysis. If you have not completed the questionnaire, you will see your balance score only.

What is measured

The test measures 11 fatty acids, including saturated, monounsaturated (Omega-9) and polyunsaturated (Omega-6 and Omega-3) fatty acids. Individual fatty acid values are shown in the table and expressed as percentages of the total fatty acids measured. For comparison in the table, the average range for each fatty acid (based on data obtained from a large group of balanced people) is presented as Target Value.

The following fatty acids are measured:

  1. Arachidonic acid (AA), C20:4, Omega-6
  2. Alpha-linolenic acid, C18:3, Omega-3
  3. Dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid, C20:3, Omega-6
  4. Docosapentaenoic acid (DPA), C22:5, Omega-3
  5. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), C22:6, Omega-3
  6. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), C20:5, Omega-3
  7. Gamma-linolenic acid, C18:3, Omega-6
  8. Linoleic acid, C18:2, Omega-6
  9. Oleic acid, C18:1, Omega-9
  10. Palmitic acid, C16:0, saturated fat
  11. Stearic acid, C18:0, saturated fat

Calculating Results:

All 11 fatty acids are analysed and the total sum of their amounts is considered 100%. For the following 6 values, ZinZino will use 7 of the fatty acids. The analysed amount of each of the 7 fatty acids is calculated as a percentage out of the 100%.

1. Omega-3 Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
2. Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
3. Omega-3 Docosapentaenoic acid (DPA)
4. Omega-6 Arachidonic acid (AA)
5. Omega-6 Dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA)
6. Saturated fat, Palmitic acid (PA)
7. Saturated fat, Stearic acid (SA)

Protection Values

First, the following 3 recognized health indicators are calculated:

1. The value for the Omega-6 ratio is calculated like this: (DGLA+AA) * 100 / (DGLA+AA+EPA+DPA+DHA)
2. The value for the Omega-3 level is the sum of EPA+DHA
3. The Balance value is calculated as Omega-6 (AA) / Omega-3 (EPA)
Each indicator value is given the same weight in a second calculation and assigned a value between 0 and 100, which is then divided by 3 to get the Protection Value that ideally should be above 90. This does not disclose anything about the health status of the person, only the fatty acid protection level.

Note: EPA and DHA values have a high impact on all the calculations and if EPA and DHA percentages are low, then as a result very low or even zero Protection Values are not uncommon.

Omega-3 Index

The Omega-3 Index is the summary of the percentage values for the two marine Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The ideal combined level is at least 8%, but higher values like 10% are desirable. Omega-3’s have many benefits because they are the primary building blocks in your cells. EPA is dominant in the blood, muscles and tissues, while DHA is dominant in the brain, sperm and eyes.

Omega-6:3 Balance

The balance is calculated by dividing the percent value of AA with the percent value of EPA (AA / EPA), which is then expressed as a Balance value, for example 3:1. The Omega-6:3 Balance in the body should preferably be below 3:1. If this ratio is above 3:1, you will benefit from a change in your diet. A low balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 is important for maintaining normal cell and tissue development (homeostasis) and help the body control inflammation.

Cell Membrane Fluidity

Fluidity is calculated by dividing the percent value of the two saturated fats with the percent value of the two Omega-3’s. The fluidity value is thus defined as (PA+SA) / (EPA+DHA), and the result is expressed as a fluidity index, for example 3:1. If the fluidity value  is below 4:1, it shows that there is sufficient fluidity in cell membranes. The more saturated the fats are in a membrane, the more rigid is the membrane. Conversely, the more polyunsaturated the fats are in a membrane, the more fluid is the membrane. Cell membrane composition and structural architecture is critical for the health of the cells and hence the body. On the one hand, the membrane needs to be rigid enough to provide sound cellular structural architecture. On the other hand, the membrane needs to be fluid enough to allow nutrients in and waste products out.

Mental Strength

This is calculated by dividing the percent value of AA with the sum of the percent values of EPA and DHA, i.e. the Mental Strength value = AA / (EPA+DHA). The result is expressed as a mental strength value, for example 1:1. The value should be below 1:1 for a sufficient and balanced supply of both Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids to the brain and the nervous system. Cognitive performance improves with increased consumption of marine Omega-3’s EPA and DHA. Childhood and old age are two critical and vulnerable stages and Omega-3 deficiency is associated with learning and memory deficits, as well as mood problems.

Arachidonic Acid (AA) index

This is calculated by dividing the percent value of AA with the sum of the percent values of EPA and DHA, i.e. the Mental Strength value = AA / (EPA+DHA). The result is expressed as a mental strength value, for example 1:1. The value should be below 1:1 for a sufficient and balanced supply of both Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids to the brain and the nervous system. Cognitive performance improves with increased consumption of marine Omega-3’s EPA and DHA. Childhood and old age are two critical and vulnerable stages and Omega-3 deficiency is associated with learning and memory deficits, as well as mood problems.
