Flax Oil vs Flax Powder

Is there a difference between taking flax oil or flax powder(ground up seeds). Flax oil can be pretty expensive seeds are pretty darn cheap. I assume you’d probably have to ingest more of the powder but nonetheless.

Any opinions?


Yes difference You get a nice dose of fiber with the flax meal. Id use it


Yeah as Phill said the flax seed/powder is both healthy fats and fiber, whereas the flax oil is primarily just a healthy fat- similar to fish oil.

Do both.
