Swanson EFAs Flaxseed Oil, High Lignan (OmegaTru) Reviews

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OMEGA FISH OIL VS FLAX For years I have used Omega fish oil. but have determined that it lacks some of the EFA in quantity. Reading some of the scientific reviews on flax seed oil with lignans I have decided to give that oil a try, and I must say there does seem to be a difference. My skin, eyes, hair have improved. For this to happen at age 80 I feel it was worth the change. April 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Product... Affordable & Effective with fast Shipping... February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Quality Happy with the product, specially content high lignan . Thank you Swanson May 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Yet Excellent Quality at an affordable price December 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Lignan Flaxseed Since I don't like eating flax seed, I find this supplement an excellent alternative. If you don't like the taste of flaxseed, you will love this product. October 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by I don't think the LIGNANS like me I had been taking a flax oil/fish oil combo which I buy through Swanson -- and decided to try Krill oil and flax oil separately. Unfortunately, I believe the LIGNANS in this flax oil are the cause of new abdominal distress. So -- I am returning to the flax/fish combo for now -- and may try a regular flaxseed oil capsule in the future. August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good value think this is an excellent value for the money compared to what one gets in the stores. It was recommended that I take it for general overall good health being that I am in my mid-sixties. August 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by HAs helped my joints HAs helped with my joints , will continue to take it July 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by No back up At the recommendation of my physician I ordered flaxseed oil. It will not be proven effective until my next blood test, but it is very easy to digest and leaves no "back up". June 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flaxseed oil Pease of mine in trying to stay healthy. June 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by IF YOU HAVE TO BE A WUSS. . . . . . . I have used and recommended Flaxseed Oil for over 50 years. I have no issue with taking about a big Tblsp size swig out of the bottle, which I keep in the door of my refrigerator, every morning. If I had any health / physical problems, I would take a full ounce, which is 2 Tblsps, - - - one morning and one night. I do not like using the High Lignan liquid Flaxseed Oil, because I have found that the Lignans settle out into a thick, tar-like layer in the bottom of the bottle, and they won't come out. However, the Lignans have important nutritional value. What to do, what to do?? Personally, I just pass on the Lignans myself and get the tremendous good out of the ALA, Alpha Linolenic Acid, Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid, that the Flaxseed Oil provides. I was at the Ophthamologist's office a few weeks ago, and she was very positively impressed by the excellent condition of my eyes (since I'm an old guy). This led to us talking about holistic health, wellness, and natural nutrition. And that led us to talking about Flaxseed Oil. We covered its tremendous values, dosages, and forms. I told her to take a Tblsp every morning. She said she couldn't. She said she was afraid she would throw it up. I told her she was a big wuss, and to get with the program. I asked her if she wanted to take 15 big capsules or learn to take 1 Tblsp of Oil. She was still leaning toward the capsules. So I told her to go on Swanson's website and order this finest Flaxseed Oil capsule with the Lignans. I am very in favor of the Lignans in the Flaxseed Oil capsules. I told her to take 3 or 4 each morning and night. The 1 or 2 regular capsules she was using just weren't cutting it. She agreed. Actually, she promised she would do this. . . . Then she admonished me to be sure to wear polarized sunglasses everyday when I go outside. I promised her that I would. May 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommended by my doctor. My doctor feels that it is a good idea to take flaxseed oil and these compare well in content to other more expensive brands that I have purchased in the past. They arrive quickly and in great shape. They also digest well without aftertaste. May 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by versus fish oil was told by a healthfood store manager that he would take flaxseed oil over fish oil if having to choose. have taken it for years now and am happy with it. March 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Less is more My husband is trying to do more with less pills. It is hard to feel the effectiveness of this one in your body. This one will reduce some larger fish oil pills. Yea - less pills. Yea - less fish contaminate worries - yea less fish killed. Yea - plants should contain less contaminates and be safer. March 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product My husband thinks this is the best stuff around. February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flax seed oil at its finest I like that adding this Omega oil product to my life style in an easy to take pill is top notch for me. It's another way to keep myself and family heart healthy. Thanks!! February 17, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed When my friend muscle tested me using this product, it tested very weak. She had also purchased this product from Swanson's for herself and also for her neighbor with the same result. We both tested strong using another brand. I have used many of Swanson's products with great success, however. We are very curious as to why this one is so ineffective. September 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product Does not have the fishy taste other Omega products do July 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I love this Flaxseed. It taste good and not too heavy. I tried other flaxseed but Swansons flaxseed is the best one I tried. I will definately keep using this one from Swanson. April 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product I have tried other Flaxseed oil but after using Swansons I will never go back. This products is great and gives me energy. I take one a day. The capsulse are good size for me.I love this flagseed oil. i will be trying the flagseed the next time so I can use it with my cereal. Thanks Swanson for bringing us great products. April 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I love taking this brand of flax seed capsules. They are easy to swallow and I've noticed how much of a difference in the way my skin looks and feel which is a plus. I recommend this product. March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLANT This is a great product, take the recommended dosage for the real benefit, I was only taking one and when I started taking 2 twice a day then I saw a real difference in my hips and knees. August 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by good source of EFAs great value, great product. will continue to take. June 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value. Helps my skin and eyes My skin is a lot less dry taking this supplement, and my eyes are less dry too. I take 2 every day, and immediately feel the difference when I skip a day. April 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product Except for the fact that the bottle leaks back when you pour the oil out and gets messy, the product is a good way to get the Omega 3 fatty acids. September 10, 2010
