Get the full measure of your health with our Balance Test.
The Slimming Clinic offer a Balance Test to allow you to understand what condition your health is in.
Zinzino’s BalanceTest is a fingerprick blood test that analyses the essential fatty acids that are found within your blood.
It measures your overall health based on your diet and lifestyle for the last 120 days, and analyses your balance ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3.
Why Do We Need To Measure Our Omega-6 to Omega-3 Ratio?
We need to measure our Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio because it gives us a really good picture of our overall health.
Because we now eat a lot more man-made, processed foods that are lower in nutrition and higher in fat and sugar, and we eat less natural, organic foods, it has created an imbalance within our bodies of Omega-6 and Omega-3.
Both these nutrients can only be obtained from our diet and the foods we eat now contain large amounts- of Omega-6 and very little Omega-3.
Science and medicine agree that to be healthy, we should have a ratio of 3 Omega-6 particles to 1 Omega-3 particle (3:1) within our bodies.
However, due to modern lifestyles and poorer diets, globally, the average balance is currently about 15:1.
Why Is An Omega-6 to Omega-3 Imbalance Bad?
An imbalance of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is bad because has a detrimental effect on the cellular health of our bodies – meaning that having too much Omega-6 and not enough Omega-3 damages the tiny building blocks that make us up.
Omega-6 is inflammatory, and Omega-3 acts as an anti-inflammatory and we need both in good balance for optimal internal health and cell support.
An imbalance can cause negative conditions within our brain, heart, organ function, skin and hair and can increase joint and muscle pain.
The Slimming Clinic
Our cells need essential fatty acids (Omega-6 and Omega-3) to function. Being made up of roughly 35 TRILLION cells, we need to make sure those cells are well looked after, or our health is negatively affected.
Each cell in our body is surrounded by an outer membrane, or layer, and one of the key jobs of Omegas is to manage the structure of that outer layer.
If that outer layer is healthy and functioning correctly, it allows healthy nutrients into the cell and lets out any waste products too, meaning our cells remain healthy and our bodies function correctly.
If we have an imbalance of Omega-6 to Omega-3, it means our cells become inflamed, meaning the outer layer becomes so solid, it cannot let nutrients in, or waste products out and we start suffering from ‘cellular inflammation’, which, in turn, begins the downward spiral of our health.
Why do you need to take a Balance Test?
Taking a simple Zinzino BalanceTest enables you to see how your Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio is shaping up.
With two small blood spots, we can tell you your exact current ratio and we can support you into ensuring it gets to within a healthy range so you can optimise your health and your weight loss.
Your blood is analysed by an independent laboratory, and they will send you a comprehensive overview of your health and the balance of your Omegas.
