Flax Seed Oil.... Whats better, capsules or liquid ?

Instead of 3 servings daily, would be better to do fish body oil, olive oil and flax, one each daily ? ( 3 svgs total a day)

I have heard that the liquid tastes pretty nasty, so if taste is a big deal to you, then I think your best bet would be to go with the caps.

It's 1 little tablespoon which you taste for all of 1 second. Go with the liquid since it has more per serving rather than 1 gram per pill. I honestly think it's cheaper that way.

Flax seed oil capsules are crap. Be careful with the liquid though because excess flax oil can cause problems with EFA metabolism so don't over consume it. Taking one or two tablespoons per day is ok. That said, if you really want to supplement your diet with it.
I would suggest you to buy an EPA/DHA supplement (like salmon oil).

The rate conversion will only be about 10 % anyway, so it shouldn't make much diference.
