    try........

    to get the liquid flaxseed oil, not gelcaps.

    U have to take like 14 of them to get 1 tbsp. Not good. Not effective.

    Oil is the way to go!

    How much depends on your calorie and fat needs. Timing I like before bed with my protein to slow digestion.

    I buy mine at the vitamine shop, they will have it at most health food stores, it was probably in a fridge at GNC, it is supposed to be kept cool.

    That right, i eat flax seed. Like one tbsp. Just swallow with water.. I think i get just the right amount of omega 3 from it.. I also use the blender and make a fine powder that can be putted in about any dish without noticing..Cost is pretty cheap also..

    I have never seen anything on it. I would just make sure your fat intake isn't pushing you cals very high.
