Flaxseed Oil, High Lignan (OmegaTru)
Love the taste!
I like the taste so much that I never use any other oil or dressing on my salads. The only issue is that the lignans tend to settle to the bottom. Be sure to shake it long and vigorously before each use.

Some I have tried have a fishy smell for some reason. This one seems fresh and low odor.

YES AND NO
High Lignan Flaxseed OIl is a Fantastic Product. My problem with it in liquid form is that the lignans settle out into a thick tar-like-goo in the bottom of the bottle. They, the lignans as a layer of 'tar,' won't come out, so they are of no benefit being stuck in the bottom of the bottle. Therefore, I regularly use Swanson's straight Organic Flaxseed Oil, which by the way is tip-top quality, none better, and at the best price on the planet.
You know, come to think of it, I haven't used this High Lignan Flaxseed Oil in quite some time, always sticking with the straight stuff. Now that it is hot, and this being the first day of Summer, I think I'll order another bottle of this High Lignan Flaxseed Oil, and see if those pesky lignans are being able to be dispersed throughout the oil, rather than settling out and staying in the bottle. I want the lignans. They are valuable co-workers with the EFAs we all use Flaxseed Oil for. I'd like to be able to get mine right along with the rest of the Flaxseed Oil that I take a big swig of every morning. . . . Instead of having to get my lignans from another product, which I do. Whether the lignans all settle out or not, this is still a wonderful nutritional food product that I personally firmly believe we ALL should consume every single day.
Even though, as a force of habit, I keep my open bottle of Flaxseed Oil in the refrigerator door, my personal experience with Flaxseed Oil, dating back over 5 decades, is that since I never let it get 'old' (6 months to a year or more), I have NEVER had any problem with it going bad or getting rancid. I keep my backup stock in a 'cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight' in a pantry or storage room, and it is always fine.
Heck, back when I had my Equestrian Ranch for AQHA and APHA Show Horses, I always ordered at least 20 dozen bottles at a time. The cases came on a pallet, which I stored in a storage area in my main 27,000 sq. ft. Show Barn (kept about the temperature of one's house), and I never had even a drop go bad. Each horse got at least 1 ounce every morning and night.

I like this Flaxseed oil because it has a mild flavor and is easy to take by itself or mixed in something. I believe omegas are good for your brain and overall health.

I have tried other flaxseed oils but none have been able to compare to the Swanson brand. I love the nutty taste and use it on salads, bread, pasta and rice.

Why pay more?
Swanson high lignan flax oil is a necessary dietary component for health. Why pay twice as much at the health food store, when you can buy it a Swanson Vitamins for half the price?

Best tasting flax oil
This is my favorite brand of flax oil and the high lignin should have extra health benefits.

This is a very good quality product at an excellent price. There is a lot of research that shows many benefits when taking this. I will always take this to stay healthy as I age.

After all I've read about the importance of taking healthy oils, I'm so thankful to find an affordable high-lignan flax oil. Like moisturizing my body from the inside out!

I love this flax oil! One of my favorites and can't beat the price. Smooth nutty flavor.

the best flax seed oil I'v found for the money
April 10, 2013
I like the taste, so I eat it straight, or use as a light dressing on a green salad, or dribble some in my yogurt.

If you take flaxseed oil for any reason, I doubt you will find as fresh and good quality product for the reasonable price as this one from Swanson's catalogue. Have used regularly for years, adding it to oatmeal every morning.

Flaxseed oil high lignan
We used Swanson EFA for years mainly in salad. The taste it adds is most delicate. I would not do without it. Try it you'll like it.

easy to take
This flax is one of the better quality oils I have taken, it is full bodied, has a nutty flavor, I like the squeeze top so that you can control the flow. If the bottle gets knocked over, will not spill.

As a healthcare professional I recommend this product. I've used it for years.

Awesome addition to my protein shake
I love Swanson's pricing on this and it is of excellent quality!

I love this product! You can smell it, you can feel the quality...

Tastes bad, but helps with my digestion.

My favorite brand of flaxseed oil used to be Barleans, but in taste, texture, price and "pourability" (and yes, I made up that word) Swanson High Lignan Flaxseed Oil beats Barleans hands down. Yum, yum! Best tasting flaxseed oil ever, and I've tried a lot of brands. Good texture, very easy to get out of the bottle. I'll be purchasing this brand from now on.

I have purchased a product similar to this in a health food store. When I saw how cheap was, I bought 2 bottles. I can't wait to finish them. I will have to try another product. The taste is absolutely HORRIBLE! I usually take it everyday, but it is so bitter, that I find myself not taking it for days! I'm sure it is great for me, but the taste leaves much to be desired.:(

Throw away your butter.
I use Flaxsed oil like butter; use it on potatoes, vegetables, toast, popcorn, you name it. I am lost if I don't have it around. Swansons offers it at a great price, and I order 5 or 6 at a time.
February 25, 2013
I add it to my protein shake each day to get the nutrition benefits and to smoothe out my shake. I love it!

best flax seed oil!
I got high lignan flax seed oil several years ago and continue to use it. This is one of the best flax seed oils I've found. It tastes good, has good texture and is in an easy to use bottle. I use it raw in salads or to drink a couple of swallows when I need to alkalize. I'm very happy I found it!
