Flax seed vs flax seed oil


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Flax seed vs flax seed oil within the Bodybuilding Supplements category.

Excerpt: I wonder if there is any reason to spend so much on flax seed oil when regular flax seed is so cheap? I just use a coffee grinder to break them up. They taste great in protein shakes. Is there really a big difference?

    I think you'd need ALOT of seeds to equate to same amount of EFA you're going to get in a tablespoon of oil.

    I think flaxseeds themselves have a much lower absorption rate, but that's just from experience. You can try the ground up flax but I think the oil is much more efficient and digesteble.

    why not take both

    flax seed oil for its omega 3s
    and the seeds for EFAs plus fiber
    If you don't shut your fucking mouth, I will kill you.
