flax seed versus fish oil ....?
I was taking fish oil capsules but then because of hearing of toxins in the fish it was made from, I switched to flaxseed oil capsules instead. Do they both contain the same ingredients one needs for lowering cholesterol? If so, which is the best? My husband can't take the fish oil because of the aftertaste but it doesn't bother me that much so I could take either that or the flaxseed. Despite being on Vytorin (my levels may be inherited/familial) & little or no meat (I do overdue maybe on the carbs though!) I can't seem to get the levels down though the HDL & tryglycerides are rather good. I'd appreciate any comparison between the fish oil & flaxseed as to which is best.
