Flax seed oil vs Fish oil

There are three main types of omega-3 essential fatty acids, EPA, DHA and ALA. Flax seed oil vs fish oil is as simple as EPA and DHA vs ALA.

The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are the EPA and DHA fatty acids and the omega-3 fatty acids in flax seed oil are the ALA fatty acids.

It is harder for your body to get the omega-3 out of the ALA fatty acids and that's why it's so important that any omega-3 supplement you take be derived from fish oil.

There is no harm in taking both flax seed oil and fish oil, if you're taking the supplements to get the benefits touted for omega-3, then you probably would be well off just taking fish oil supplements.

In the comparision of flax seed oil vs fish oil, both have their benefits, but fish oil is considered superior.
