mega dose fish oil
Okay, so I considering at least upping it to 10 grams a day...or more. I know there was another thread on this. My question is this: are there any negative effects from using flaxseed oil as my primary source of omega 3 as opposed to fish oil? Of course flaxseed oil also contains some amount of omega 9's and 6's. Thoughts?

I have a book that has a huge section on good fats, and from what I remember it says people generally get too much of the fats from Flaxseed. Well not exactly the words, but something like that. Its easier to get enough of those fats than others...Take that with a grain of salt though because its all from memory, plus I'm not good at remembering things I read!. Plus I'm tired as hell today!. Maybe I will go look it today but I doubt it because I'm just burnt out as hell today for some reason....

There's a formula that states just how much of omegas 3,6, and 9 are optimal, and if you wanted to be super-scientific, you could mix perfect ampunts of fish oil, flax, borage, evening primrose, etc. The main thing to shoot for is a good dose of these healthy oils, some fish and some flax daily does the trick really. Those are (relatively) cheap in bulk and in liquid form.
Also, if you cook with olive oil and eat nuts/peanut butter, etc, you're getting a lot of the omega 9 (I believe) whereas the others have mostly 3 and 6.
There are those expensive "perfect blend" oil caps available, but leave those on the shelf at GNC for the unsavvy retail kooks; they're waay too expensive! Get 1000 caps of fish oil from Matt (CNW) and a big bottle of flax for the fridge and you're loving your life....

I also buy the bottles of fish oil (cod liver is my choice) and flax oil (kept in the fridge). Way more cost effective than pills, and easy to puchase at most any supermarket these days -- thanks to the natural foods movement. ;-)

The fish oil I have is great, tastes good and very nice after taste too. I do 1tbs per day which is 15 grams and a month supply costs like 24-26... I don't see why you can't megadose it

Hey man, take this with a grain of salt too, but take it anyways. Olive oil is high in omega 6. I heard (From Dr. Mercola who I am not 100% sure on) that cooking it breaks down the unsaturated fats and makes it unhealhy. This may be because he wants to sell coconut oil (saturated fat BTW) biut I have not seen the science yet. Either way, I like my olive oil raw, and both I and my pregnant wife take 12 gm fish oil daily because it is just that gopod for you.
