    AtLarge should start selling flax/fish oil

    Whats up guys, I know I've been bugging hulk and chris about this for awhile but I think thats it strange you guys aren't selling this stuff. I have a hard time trusting other companies than atlarge right now, and personally this is the only supplement I don't get from you guys. Do all your customers a favor and start flipping some EFA's.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    I have considered it but am not entirely convinced of their value as a supplement.

    We may add them in the future, we shall see.

    If you can sell a blend you'd have a golden product. Definitely a valuable supplement.

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Meh, I have a feeling most people would rather go to their local supermarket/costco and pick up a bottle for cheap.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Not if it was a blend using an optimal ratio. Mind you I don't know how shipping would work out as the stuff would probably be rancid by the time it arrived.

    If ALN couldcome up with a flax/fish oil blend that has the same level of product quality as Nitrean or Opticen, then I would buy it. Speaking of Nitrean, I just got my latest ALN order of chocolate Nitrean. Nitrean is the best protein powder out there bar none!
    A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.

    The only way it could work is with capsules. I think it would be hard to be price competitive, though.

    I don't see why one would even need a blend in the first place?

    Fish Oil > Flax Oil

    no?

    Well there are ratios that are favorable. Now the question is, are they going to make a large impact over and above combining fish and flax oil?

    I'm just suggesting that from a supplement sales point of view, being different can be a unique selling point.
