I finally found a way to take flax w/o torturing myself!!! I got an oral syringe, I fill it with flax oil, put it to the back of my mouth, and launch. It misses most of my tastebuds that way, and my entire mouth doesnt taste like it after. I am giddy… But, I still have a nasty aftertaste where it does hit tastebuds, and it is like I can taste it all the way down my esophegus. I found that diet cola seems to be the best chaser, but was wondering if the carbonation poses any problems interacting with the oil. I cant think of why it would, but it has been too long since I took a bio class… Any input would be greatly appreciated.
