I've read alot about the benefits of Flax Seed Oil, but what about just taking Flax Seeds? Are the benefits the same, and is it ok to eat the seeds just like that?

Flax seeds have a tough outer layer and need to be ground up to make them digestible.

:withstupi If you eat the seeds without doing anything to them, most (if not all) will pass through largely undigested. Basically you're a lot better off buying the oil.
