These are essential fatty acids that the body does not make on its own. So, we have to get them from our food or from supplements. They are found in foods like nuts, seeds, eggs and seafood. Omega 6 controls the inflammatory response and tells the body how to react, for example, when you cut yourself. Omega 3 controls cell signaling and gene expression. It is anti-inflammatory and tells the body when to stop the inflammatory response. Scientific research is saying we should be at a 3:1 ratio, while some nutrition trainings say 2:1 is optimal. I am seeing test results from 10:1 and as high as 84:1.
We love convenience, therefore many people are eating too much fast food and too much processed and packaged food. The excess omega 6 in these products is coming from vegetable oils and seed oils Also, over-farming by the agriculture industry has brought a lot of attention to the quality of our food. With the soil being depleted of vital nutrients, so is the food we are eating.
When there is too much omega 6 in the body, the cell walls start to harden and become less fluid. The cells do not absorb the nutrients from our food like they used to and toxins are not being released as easily. Because omega 6 is pro-inflammatory, the inflammatory response is being triggered but we are not consuming enough omega 3 to tell the cells to stop that response and the body is turning on itself by attacking healthy tissues that it shouldn't. This is causing major issues in the body.
We need omega 3 to balance out the ratio and park in the receptor sites of the cell wall membrane so that the cells can absorb nutrients and the body can function properly. Increased omega 3 levels benefit the brain, eyes, heart, joints, skin and immune system.
Thousands of studies have been done and reported on the National Institutes of Health website.
The 10:1 ratio is from a customer who was taking an $80-$90 bottle of fish oil, which did not include polyphenols. Fish get polyphenols from the algae they eat. When you eat fish, you are getting omega 3 and polyphenols. Other products boil the fish to extract the omega 3, which also removes the polyphenols. They are not adding them back in and we need them in order for the body to absorb the omega 3 effectively. BalanceOil polyphenols come from the Spanish Picual olive, which is rich in omega 9 and is very high in antioxidants. Please don't waste your money on other supplements.
This BalanceOil is backed by science and proven to be effective with its test-based system. 95% of people are in balance after 120 days!!! I have not seen this with any other Omega 3 supplement.
This comes in the form of ALA, or alpha-linolenic acid. It is a shorter chain fatty acid containing 18 carbons. The body actually uses EPA, 20 carbon chain, and DHA, 22 carbon chain, fatty acids. In order for the brain and body to use the ALA, it must do a biochemical conversion to add 2 or 4 carbons to the short chain for it to be converted to EPA and DHA that we actually need to build and repair cells. Surprisingly, that process is only 3-5% successful. This is very important to know for plant-based eaters.
Good thing there is an ALGAE OIL for vegans!
I consider myself fairly healthy so I was definitely shocked when I received my results.
I've had lower back and SI joint pain for over 25 years and have seen chiropractors off and on since I was 19. While that helped some, my issue never seemed to go away. Shortly after the start of the yoga teacher training, I developed an issue with my right piriformis muscle. It didn't matter if I was working out too much, not at all or sitting most of the day. It was a constant, nagging pain. I tried increasing my visits to the chiropractor, I used a foam roller, I even bought a $200 massage gun trying to elevate the pain. Nothing was working.
On July 29, 2020, I was sitting at my desk and realized I could barely feel it. There were days when I would sit on knuckles trying to release the tightness. The pain level was around 1-2%, where previously it stayed around 80-90%. Ever since that day, I've been waiting to see if it will act up again and so far it has not. I cannot express enough how nice it is to literally not have a pain my rear. In addition, I no longer experience low back or SI joint pain.
I also had an issue with constipation for over 15 years. I couldn't take fiber supplements because they caused more bloating and constipation. I was using a digestive enzyme before each meal, a prebiotic, a probiotic, a stool softener, and an herbal digestive aid. Now I don't use any of that, thanks to the fiber blend, and I no longer suffer from constipation! (And I'm saving money!!!)
This is my personal experience and I am not saying the Scandinavian Health Protocol has cured or can cure anything. However, because this is a test-based program, I know that the product is working and I have the test results to prove it. I have .4 to go before I am balanced and I am very happy with my results, considering where I started 4 months ago! I have spent a lot of money in the past on products that I thought were working but actually were not. For me, this is affordable and I get to see and FEEL that it's working!!!
