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)

@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. :(

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)

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)
