Isn’t flax oil bad for your prostate?
If a male uses more than 2 tablespoons a day of straight flax oil, yes, it can have consequences to the prostate as quoted in one of the articles not too long ago here.
I think you’d find everything you needed to know about flax oil from here:
He’s a doctor if that matters to you.
The udo’s oil blend is one of the best. Albiet you still need a product like Flameout to cover other Omega 3 needs.
P.S. All oils taste like shit. Suck it up, down a tablespoon and chase it with some juice and it’s over.
I can’t believe this is the first I’ve heard about flax oil and the prostate. I’ve been taking 5 Tbsp of flax oil everyday, needless to say I’ll be stopping that and incorporating some flax meal instead. Not quite sure how to replace it calorie wise though, is olive oil just as high in ALA as flax? Anybody know how many mg per Tbsp? I can’t find it on my bottle.
I already take a different shake w/ 3 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil , so not sure if it’s harmful if I add another 5 Tbsp on top of that?? Would it be better to replace it with a mix of olive and fish oils (not the pill kind). Seems like I’d have to be drinking a lot fish oil. I’m on the carb cycle codex so changing protein or carbs isn’t an option. Any suggestions?[/quote]
