Flaxseed has a good amount of Omega 6. Are you saying you can't find it or something?

Bite the bullet and spend the cash. Or, you could just spend the cash and forget about biting the bullet. Biting a bullet is not necessary in this case.

When exactly would biting a bullet be necessary?


Also, how often do you take flax? Would one serving a day, like on top of a salad, be good? I already get plenty of fats from my red meat and peanuts.

Depends what your diet is like latman.

You should consider it as part of your diet and not a supplement. (IMO)

1 tbsp per 100 lbs of body weight is a good amount. Flaxseed oil is not simply "fat," it is one of the highest concentrations of Omega 3 EFAs you can get. Red meats and nuts average about .1 to .5 grams of Omega 3 per serving as opposed to Flaxseed's 8 grams of Omega 3.

One occasion in which biting a bullet would be necessary is if someone had a gun to your head and said "bite this bullet" and gave you a bullet to bite. I think that biting the bullet, even if you chip a tooth, is better than getting shot in the head.
