    Need most effective EFA supplement

    Need a little help. My Girl friend says she simply can't keep down the flax seed oil I gave her. What is the best capsule or pill supplement for Omega 3 and omega 6 sources? If anyone has a good product it would be much appreciated. I already have her eating some fish and Nat PB but it is not enough in my opinion.

    I've used Sundown Flax Oil Pills before and they worked fine. The only problem is their like 1g a pill. So you need to pop a lot. I have yet to find a more potent pill. I usually just put a tsp of flax in my flavored protein shake. I can't even taste it.

    I'll second this - you can put whole flax seeds in a coffee grinder and make a flax meal she can mix in w/ pretty much anything - cereal, oatmeal, shakes, yogurt, etc.

    Pills are going to add up because a 1g pill is about as big as you'll find. You'd have to take a bunch throughout the day which becomes cumbersome.

    I'm sure you've already tried, but make sure she's mixing it up in something so you can't taste it.

    If you can't figure anything else out...feed her a bunch of natty pb or handfuls of almonds throughout the day and add in some omega 3 fish oil capsules. This way you only need omega 3's in pill form - should help cut down the # of pills she has to take/day.
