    What's the Nutritional Content of FLAXSEED OIL?

    I'm gonna get myself some FLAXSEED OIL, or Linseed oil as it seems to be called here in the UK.

    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what the nutritional content of it is (i.e. Kcals/Protein/Carbs/Fats).

    How much should I take, with which meals and at what time of the day?

    Also, I've read that it's a good idea to take it with either Borage Oil, Primrose Oil or Safflower Oil. Does anyone know if this is correct?

    id been useing these here, when i first started i burned right through them till the last one i figured i was getting the same boost with only one post workout. For me i see alot more muscle build up per workout on just one seed. I dont think ill drop them from my workouts.

    Ive searched all around for these things and could only find them at for 24 bucks a 120 pill bottle. Allsportsnutrition should get some of these theri great.
