A study done by Dr. Gordon Bell at Stirling University in Scotland showed two thirds of children with autism showed a deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids. When the diet is supplemented with omega-3 fats, parents report less aggression, irritability, hyperactivity, and improved sleep.
Omega-3’s are essential fatty acids, which means they cannot be made in the body, so they must be ingested. The essential fatty acids derived from omega-3 oils are DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Where DHA helps to build and protect the brain, EPA helps with the functioning of the brain. We need both.
Some of the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation in the brain and the body which can be helpful in gut health recovery, therefore improving the immune system. They help protect the mitochondrion which is like the insulation on a phone wire. This helps the transmission of vital information to get into the cell. They are necessary for neurotransmitters in the brain, and assist in cognitive ability and mood. Omega-3 fatty acids are commonly used for mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, and aggressive or violent behavior.
The essential or omega-3 fatty acid is DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). It is particularly important in brain health, synapse health, assisting the brains circuitry, and in its ability to function properly. Several studies have shown that low levels of DHA fats increase depression and that increasing its intake relieves it. (Weidner, Conner, Conner and Hollis, “Improvements in hostility and depression in relation to dietary change and cholesterol lowering.” Annuals Internal Medicine 117(1992):820-823.)
Quick reference benefits of omega 3’s:
- improve the health of the colon
- assist in the detoxification process
- Brain protection
- optimizes brain function
- protects the myelin sheath helping connect brain messages
- increase thyroid hormone transfer to the brain
- helps fight free radical damage and oxidative stress
- strengthen the immune system
- reduce inflammation
- promote cardiovascular health
- improves eye function
- may help normalize calcium blood levels helping bones, teeth and muscle function
- may support normal blood triglyceride levels, normal blood pressure, and cell division
Why are we deficient in omega 3’s?

The Balance Test to measure inflammation levels
The Balance test is a finger prick blood sample test kit that you can order with your first purchase of Zinzino oils. It is best to do one test when it arrives to see where your own, and your child’s inflammation levels are before taking Zinzino. If you purchase a test kit initially, they will send you one test now and the second one will come in 120 days. It takes 120 days for the cell membranes to regenerate. It works so well that, when taken daily at the required dose, you can actually measure results from this test.
How to order Zinzino
Omega 3’s are needed everyday by everyone. Your child with autism needs it, and so do all members of the family. Since you’re needing it ongoing, you have the option to save 50% on your orders. Purchasing Zinzino on their autoship program saves you up to 50%, as long as you have your order shipped for a minimum of 6 consecutive months. They can be shipped anywhere in the world.
Choose what you want to order and you’ll have the option to choose your flavors for each of the balance oils. Auto orders come every two months, and can be changed to different products whenever you like (they just need 2 days notice prior to your shipment date).
You can order single bottles or larger kits (good when multiple family members are taking it). Your first order will be a slightly higher price than your future orders since it includes the cost of the two balance tests, if you choose. Refrigerate oils after opening.
The following are direct links to purchase:
Start with the first one below, ‘AquaX single with test’, unless you’d like more product right away, or you need the vegan formula. The AquaX has a patented formula that can mix oil and water, so you don’t feel the oil in your mouth when you drink it. It just tastes like a lemon drink. It may be more desirable for children with autism and their sensory issues in the mouth.
- Single 300ml bottle Aqua X oil, and single 100ml bottle Balance oil with 2 tests
- Essent-balance oil capsules.
- Vegan larger start package-2 bottles of oil with 2 tests.
