Hi,

Should I take Flaxseed oil, omega 3 fish oil from Salmon or wild-caught Mediterranean anchovies. Flaxseed is a diamond for me. wild Salmon is diamond. Salmon oil is black dot. Anchivy is avoid. no anchovies oil listing.
I asked a few months back this question and was told take flaxseed oil.

My nutritional practitioner says I need to take Omega 3 "fish" oil and flaxseed is not enough.

What should I do?

Thank you

Take krill oil - It is unrated so neutral
and it supplies you with astaxanthin.

There is fish oil from other sources than salmon and anchovy.

I have not seen your SWAMI, but nomads often do well with cod, herring, mackerel, and sardines.

I take Omega 3 oil and also use Flax seeds which I grind up as it stays fresher than flax-oil which can go rancid quickly.

See if you can find a fish oil from compliant fish. How do sardines rate for you?

I think that is the best way to go. I have never bought ground flax seed or flax oil but I have heard it is "flat" (rancid) in much the same way that ground Pepper is.

If you buy your own seed and grind it up as needed you are guaranteed a fresh quality product otherwise you are taking your chances. It is not like it is difficult or time consuming and is certainly worth the effort.

I also have Salmon Oil as a black dot and Salmon (no farmed for me) as Diamond.  Sardines are also a Diamond.  And Flaxseeds.

Even though Flax oil is a Diamond, I no longer buy it because it is so quick to go rancid.  I fresh-grind golden flax daily and eat 3 Tb in my smoothie, along with 1 Tb of freshly ground Chia.  And I no longer take Salmon Oil Capsules.

I'll take a Cod Liver Oil Capsule semi-regularly during the cloudy season.  Otherwise, I eat cold-water fatty fish 5 times a week.
