- Easy-to-use dried blood spot self-test
- Measures 11 fatty acids in your blood
- Provides data about your Omega-6:3 Balance
Zinzino’s BalanceTest 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 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.
VITAS Analytical Services in Norway 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.
