    flax seed oil


    is flax ...flax. i mean, i ordering more supps here and need to stock back my flax seed oils. but i found 250 caps at 1000mg for bout $10. Thats much cheaper than other flax from brands like health from the sun, high lignan, etc. you thinking the ration amount of omega 3,6,9 are different from one brand to another and if so, any of the omegas a better choice?

    Flax oil SHOULD be flax oil. If its a reputable company then it contains all 3 essential omega fats. Get oil....not caps anyways.

    only reason i lean for the caps is cuz i hate messing with my shakes with the addes oil. the caps allow me to jus swallow uknow. and the ones i see for the cheapest has no brand name., just says flax seed oil at vitaglo.com

    Oil is fine in shakes as long as it's not post workout. And Id guess that its vitaglo.com's brand and I go out on a limb and say they're reputable.

    ya take the oil. The pills will take longer to digest, i put my flax in my before bed protein shake, cant even taste it, and it slows my protein absorbtion down.

    A protein powder in milk with flax is a very good idea before bed...keeps your muscles supplied with protein so it can grow while you sleep! ow ow

    I use to drink alot of flax oil. I recently switch over to ground flax seeds. I buy the whole flax seed and then use a coffee bean grinder to grind about a week or two worth and store it in the frig.

    I add 1/8 cup to my protein shakes and it does not change the taste one bit.

    With the ground flax seeds, you not only get the oil, you also get extra protein, fiber, and the very important lignans. The lignans have a positive effect on estrogen control in men.

    BUT, you have to grind the flax seeds for your body to be able to use them.

    There are also some sites that sell flax powder, so that you don't have to grind it yourself.
