For years I tried various omega 3 supplements but either couldn’t tolerate the taste, or swallow the huge pill, or I suffered wicked (yes, I live in Boston!) heartburn and ‘fish burps’!

Finally, I found a product that tastes good, AND, has no side effects. Zinzino offers a test (finger prick a drop of blood) to show your starting point. The ideal ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 is anywhere from 1:1 to 1:4. Mine was 1:17! Me? A dietitian? How could this be?

This was eye opening! Too low can create inflammation in your body leading to the risk of various diseases such as diabetes, cancer and more. I love their tutti frutti. Sounds crazy, but, tastes like bubble gum? To try Zinzino’s omega 3’s, go to:
