Rated 5 out of 5 by Clancy 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by laddybug 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nonplussed 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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nsmd 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".

Rated 5 out of 5 by FitDoc1 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.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JoyfullyHis 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.

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.
