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)

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).

If you don't eat fatty fish often, some supplementation is probably a good idea. A gram of fish oil per day over a week would add up to the total 2 6-ounce servings of salmon.

@CD - Note that the darker your skin is, the more sun you need for vitamin D production, due to melanin antagonizing the process. The sun is a harsh mistress to black appartment-dwellers. :(

To some extent, yes, but PUFAs are always oxidizing. If you are concerned and to lessen the effect, simply cook at a much lower temperature. Butter melts in the sunlight, and you only need enough heat and enough time for the non-fat particles to... (more)

It's harder to imbalance omega-6s and omega-3s when you're not consuming tons of extracted vegetable oils daily. Meat, veggies, olive or coconut oils... You'd be hard pressed to get worse than 10:1 o6:3. If it's a whole food, I don't think we... (more)
