Hi All...what is the best EFA to buy?
Is it Flaxseed oil?
has more benefits than flax... but I take both...
Depends. Fish oil is good in small amounts for epa/dha but should not be used as a macro, stick with 1-4 grams of epa/dha. If your oil is 50% epa/dha: 2-8 grams oil.
Flax is good for a macro but many prefer a more balanced oil like UDO's or hemp.
In short, use fish oil for epa/dha and a suitable balanced oil for macro needs.
Thanks all !
Personally I like Lipidex by San.Originally Posted by solid711
I like Fish oil from Optimum nutrition. plain fish oil with 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA per gelcap, and very cheap.
Yes...a few people mentioned LIPIDEX by SAN...
what is your take on it?
Serving Size: 6 Softgels
Servings Per Container: 30
Amount Per Serving:
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (80% CLA) 3000mg
Unrefined Flaxseed Oil 1000mg
Borage Seed Oil 1000mg
Coldwater Fish Oils 1000mg
Vitamin A (as cod liver oil) 400IU
DL-Tocopheryl Acetate 100IU
(Vitamin E Oil)
I feel that it's a pretty balanced product - basically offers in one bottle all that you would need in terms of EFA. I guess it could do without the extra Vitamin A but otherwise a solid product with a tad bit of overkill. Personally, I am not a fan of taking 6 caps 2x a day so I find myself taking 1-2 servings throughout the day, sometimes 1.5 (9 caps). I'll definitely keep using it.Originally Posted by solid711
MRM Smart Blend has been doing the trick for me. It was put together by MRM and Charles Poliquin.
labrada's efa lean is a good one also.
If I want to take a take a liquid by tablespoon, for example...
instead of softgels
What would you suggest?
Life Extension Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lingans & Olive Fruit Extract, yielding 700mg EPA/500mg DHA/265mg Olive extract.
you could buy some expellar pressed or cold pressed sunflower oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, safflower oil, peanut oil, flaxseed oil, sesame oil, canola oil... the list can go on and on but I'm sure you get the drift. BPmartyr's suggestion for Udo's choice is a good one, It is a very healthy blend of efas that is quite popular.
here is a cool website where you can find all kinds of healthy oils
Natural Oils | Unrefined Natural Oils | Carrier Oils Oils by Nature
hopefully this helps
I take 8-12 Grams of fish oil each day and usually throw a tablespoon of flax seeds into my oatmeal 2x day. When I choose to use oil when cooking, I like to use a mixture of olive and safflour oil.
I like Total EFA by Health From the Sun
CNW has a great deal on bulk fish oil caps.

Probably the best buy I have found is Omega 3 HMJ at Wal-Mart. It gives you 500 mg EPA/DHA in a 800 mg capsule. More of the god things in a smaller easier to swallow size. The price is right also at $5.69 for 30.
I rely on a balance of good fat from my diet and supplement with:
Omega 3 caps (8-12g/day)
Lecithin Caps (35% PC - 6/day)
SesaLean Oil (3-4 tbsp/day)
I think athletes with less experience dieting and supplementation really overlook how critical fat intake is to a pleasing physique, performance and overall health.
man vaporize looks interesting
