View Full Version : milled flax seed vs oil

any advantage to taking flax seed oil in reference to milled flax seed or are they pretty much the same? By this more or less i am asking about the nutritional value and if one is absorbed at a better rate or digested better than the other

I tend to avoid flax meal because it's a goitrogen and my thyroid is a little sluggish as it is.
Flax oil is also on my "no thanks" list - the ALA doesn't convert very well to EPA/DHA needed by the body. Read here (http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=272)for more on this. Third question.
