Is there any way we could incorporate the information from this article (which is great by the way!) into the information we see on the nutrition page? It's frustrating to see all my "fats" lumped together in one column.

Dear Liza Barnes,
TY so much for this article. I used to take Omega 3 about 10-15 years ago, basically, because of the popularity of it back then. Because of your article. I now understand why I am taking it.

Since I began taking Omega 3, the arthritic swelling in my finger joints has diminished noticibly. It also contributed to my hair becoming thicker again, I believe.

Have been using the SILK soymilk with Omega3 added, hope it is effective and absorbed by the body.

I add flax oil in my protein shake everymorning and I cannot even taste the oil. My protein shake has creme chocolate flavor so it taste just like a chocolate milk shake, it's great!

I am using flax seed oil (1 capsule with meals 1 or 2x a day) and my digestive system is better than ever. I also eat fish at least 3x a week. Since I added more Omegas to my diet, my skin has improved a great deal. I have less acne and better skin tone.

I add it to a small serving of oatmeal in the morning. It keeps me filled for a very long time!

Flax seeds can be ground and added to orange juice, stirred and drank quickly. It is quite tasty as well as good for you.
