I generally consume both, cold pressed, in salads, and since by taste to me flax is tastier, I wonder if it happens to be richer in Omega 3s.

Although Flax is higher in omega-3 than olive oil, neither one is particularly helpful to your body as far as making the omega-3's your body actually uses. The conversion rate of the plant-form of n-3 to the animal form in humans is less than 10%,... (more)

danno, unfortunately, the krill oil business is almost a monopoly. There is one firm in Canada that effectively is the only mass volume producer, and all of the name brands you buy in a store are in fact just relabeling that one company's oil.... (more)

A good fraction of it is ALA, the omega-3 not given enough credit by paleo folks (because it's the plant-sourced omega-3).

As the title states, does an excess of omega 6 fats in and of itself cause inflammation, or rather does it simply facilitate an overly aggressive inflammatory response to harmful stimuli?

Olive oil does not carry much significant amount of omega-3, it's almost all mono-unsaturated fat (oleic-acid). In fact, it even has more omega-6 PUFA than omega-3, but just a little bit so it's not something to worry too much about it. See: I... (more)

The best brand is called "decrease your omega 6 (so you don't overload on PUFAs) and consume shellfish instead." It doesn't exactly roll of the tongue like "Nordic Naturals" or "Eskimo-3" do, but don't let the name fool you- it's a great brand... (more)
