flaxseeds and flaxseed oils are first in the chain of Omega 3 conversions, inorder to get the EPA and DHA from Fish Oil, it has to be downconverted. It's a lengthy and usually very inefficient process, therefore only getting a small % of EPA/DHA from the original Flaxseed oil. However the flaxseeds have other beneficial properties (anti estrogenic) with lignans.). I use the flaxseeds (not the oil) and the fish oil to get the EPA/DHA directly and in good quantity.
