What kind of flaxseed oil do you use?
Ok I want to start using flax oil, so what kind do you guys recommend. I found one called Health from the Sun, anybody tried it before? Thanks in advance.

Health from the Sun is a fine brand, but If you're using flax for EFA's then, Health from the Sun has a better product called "The total EFA".
It's a better choice because the blend of omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids are proportioned better.

I have been talking with a few trainers in the gym. We were discussing flax seed oil and they were very serious about only using refridgerated(sp?) flaxseed oil. Something about it loses its naturalization or something.
I wasn't sure, but the store i buy all my supps at, only offered the cold version so i wen't with that.
1 tablespoon at 7am and one at 6pm inside a shake (cause its nasty)
(Nutrition depot -sweet prices off of nasa road one and hwy 3 for those texas boys and girls out there)
Does anyone know if they are right? I havent had much luck finding information on the storage but i am still looking.
Thanks for the good info in this thread, This board rules

I will throw in my .02 on this one.
The best Flax oil BY FAR is Barlean's High Lignan Flax oil. It is the highest quality stuff out there. They cold press it the day it is ordered by the healthfood store you purchase it from. One thing you have to consider with Flax oil is rancidity even when refrigerated (which all flax should be). Ive gone through a bunch of different brands of flax and the Barleans has given me the best results, tastes best, and lasts longest. I wont buy any other kind any more.
Use it and you will see.
