    2000 calories in one cup for Flax seed oil! Holy shit batman!
    Yea when I read that I was like holy crap. But it is all fat calories and saturated fat. So I think they recommend 1-2 tablespoons a day. Definitely not more than that.

    Re: Flax seed Oil

    Longer living fish usually have more mercury in them. Tuna steak has higher mercury than canned tuna though, which is pretty safe. I eat the oil based canned tuna right out of the can. I love it. I eat one - two cans a week. But I don't work out heavy and on a routine basis right now. I eat it for the omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3 fatty acids of tuna help improve cardiovascular health

    I love sushi but I would not trust it in my location.

    Flax seed is great because it helps with inflammation and it helps when it comes to colon issues. I love it and I add it to my smoothies as much as I can.

    Hey! I know that flax seed oil is supposed to help with inflammation and it aids with digestion. Many people just add it to their protein shakes. I have been adding it to my shakes an it has help with some muscle pain that I was dealing with.

    Flax seed oil is very good for adding a few extra calories to your diet and also give you all the nutritional benefits of the omegas it provides.
    I personally just add 1 tablespoon to my protein shakes.

    Re: Flax seed Oil

    Flax seeds are very healthy and so is the oil that is obtained from them. Are you thinking about consuming it for the EFA's? Because, if that's the case, you could also consume chia seed oil. One disadvantage of flaxseed oil might be that it contains phytoestrogens. Chia seeds contain nutrients very similar to flax seeds, without the phytoestrogens.

    Flax seeds are so good for you. I really enjoy using them in my everyday routine and I think more people should.
