    Flax seed oil

    What are the benefits from flax seed oil? I see that a pretty decent amount of people use it, but whats the reasoning? I'm guessing for cardiovascular reasons, but is it really that beneficial?

    Its contains healthy fats which are good in many different ways. To list a few: heart health, muscle growth, energy metabalism, healthy way to add calories.

    Imo, taste like total asss! I supplement with olive oil instead. Sacrifice some benefits but taste much better!

    Thats okay. However pill form is ideal for supplementative benefits rather then diet purposes. You would have to take ALOT of capsules to gain the extra calories, you know?

    And yes...i made up the word 'supplementative'! So what?
