I currently take fish oil supplement pills, but I was wondering if there is a better source for EFA's, such as flax, or sources from food like olive oil or nuts. Or, doesn't it really matter, just as long as you're getting them?

Fish oil is better than flax as it needs no conversion. Olive oil is not a source of EFAs. Most nuts contain excess Omega 6's, which you don't want.

If you want to do better, you can find pharmaceutical grade fish oil, which is as good as it gets. Overpriced and not really worth it. I'd stick to fish oil.

Some info on flaxseed oil for men. I take fish oil capsules.

How about fish? Eat a salmon steak.
