I've been using flax oil but I'm going to be switching types of oil from now on - 1 bottle of flax, followed by 1 bottle other oil, then flax again, etc.
I plan on taking either Udo's or some high quality fish oil or even alternating betw the types. SO I went to 3 sites: Udo's, Dr. mercola, and another Dr. selling premium, ultra-pure fish oil.
So I looked at the doses recommended by all 3, and I did the numbers. At my weight, at the highest dose, the cost comes out to:
Dr. Mercola: $70/mo
Dr. X: $68-90 /mo, depending on quantity purchased.
WTF? Even if i only took 1/2 the recommended dose, that's no less than $34 a month. Seems pretty expensive, esp. since flax oil is so cheap. Flax at the same 1/2 doses works out to $14 a month from GNC, NOT from a discount retailer.
Of course, they all have $$$ to gain, so that would explain the high recommended doses.
So my questions are:
A)how much do you take? Why that specific amount?
B)Doesn't the price of just 1/2 of the recommended dose seem way too expensive?
BTW, I am pretty stringent w/ my fat intake, so no way am I going to base all my fat intake on 3-4 tablespoon of nasty oil. Probably 2 tbsp a day of EFAs, at the most-maybe 3. I'm still experimenting, so I haven't decided on a hard number yet. I also need some olive oil for flavor in my salads and tomato sauce, otherwise I can't eat them.
