Why Flax Seed oil?
Just curious as to why everyone uses flax oil over olive oil. Isn't Olive Oil denser in EFA's and cheaper?

Both are good, as well as Omegas 3.6.9.
I use high lignan flax for the anti-cancer properties.

i've actually been using grapeseed oil...any thoughts on that...the poly unsat fats are similar to those in flax and it doesnt taste like 50 year old snatch.

Safflower oil is tastleess and very high in Omega-6 Fatty Acids. I mix it with my shake before bed time.

Flax does taste slightly better, but the stuff costs twice as much. Not a good exchange in my book. I either mix it in a shake or put it on a spoon and drink, with a chaser of course
