    If your taking Arachidonic Acid with it. Then you may get into some competition for storage and conversion enzymes at the higher dosing levels(as would anything with pro-infammatory properties).

    You can take multiple oils without issues. I take fish oil and hemp seed oil together daily.

    I know that!

    I'm a huge advocate of employing a very diversified/wide spectrum "healthy fat" regimen to my diet. todate, I've always simply thrown everything together at meals without any condieration of competition between the olis/fats.

    I was just wondering if taking sesamin oil (1 teaspoon) and macademia nut oil (1 tablespoon) with each with my 4 "real meals" (4x/day) but this was also when I'd take my fish oil caps.

    I just wondered if any of these healthy fats ingested at the same time, would take precendence or compete for absorption somehow; thereby rendeing one of the others "useless" to a degree.

    I obviously want the most potent effects of all 3 oils given their varying degrees/unique attributes with respect to "health benefits.

    For what it's worth, I eat a bit of flax with my 5th "real" meal so similarly, the same concerns are applied.

    I was always told / read to take all oils (fish oil, flax oil, etc) with a meal. Taking on an empty stomach they'll be used for energy.

    Just throwing that in there
