Fire... No the flax meal is Great it is ground up seeds Cheap a great source of both fat and fiber as well as other benefits of the flax seeds, even a bit of protein.
there are 60 k/cals in a simple 2 tables spoons. 4.5 g of good fats 4 carbs from fiber and 3 grams of protien .
Its awesome is shakes and salads.
So that 2 tablks sponns is like taking 4 1/2 gel caps the stuff is as cheap as oatmeal and its good in your oat meal.
One thing though I personally limit my intake two a serving every day or every other day. This after LL mentioning it. He now also limits his flax intake JUST incase. Looking into flaxmeal and the flax oils they May have some of the same effects of soy with the phytoestrogen though they seem to be weaker. They may inhibit anabolism and effect metabolism and protein synthesis to an extent. Also the important part is the EPA/DHA and the conversion of the flax fats in the body is LOW. Sop you are better off with fish opils which require no conversion.
If I were to choose one it would be Fish Oils they should be an everyday supp. The on top of that throw in Flax and walnuts and fatty fish your well on your way to getting those omega 3's. The omega 6'6 and sat fats are not a problem in todays world.
Hope that helps,
