Omega 3 and/or Flaxseed oil

Hi all

The current so called "wonder drug" is Omega 3 fish oil. I have been taking 3000 mg a day for about a year to firstly help me with skin problems that I have but more broadly to help me with general well being. Whilst it is hard to know whether it has made a difference, I do feel healthier, whether that’s in the head or not is another matter.

One simple question, should I be taking flaxseed oil as well or instead of Omega 3 for general well being. Someone said that Flaxseed oil has everything that Omega 3 fish oil tablets have plus more. Is this is correct or is taking Flaxseed oil basically overkill?

1000 mg good quality fish oil has helped me tremendously with neuropathy symptoms.

Re: Omega 3 and/or Flaxseed oil

I was wondering how long it took before the fish oils / flax seed took effect on the neuropathy. I'm hardly without the burning sensation. I'll start tonite using it.

thanks, Kathryn
