    flax seed Isn't dangerous. It gets rancid quickly In either the ground or oil form. Definitely can be toxic In these cases.

    This is mitigated when you buy the actual unprocessed seed.

    Beyond that, It has some estrogenic compounds so I prefer to avoid it personally.

    Chia > imo

    I think the general consensus is that fish oil > flaxseed oil. Only about 4% of the O-3's in flaxseed are converted into DHA iirc.

    Flaxseed and Fish Oil are different types of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids. EPA/DHA vs ALA.

    Research Krill Oil. A friend of mine turned me on to it.

    It seems that as of now

    Krill Oil > Fish Oil > Flaxseed


    Lol who knows tho this stuff seems to change all the time.
