Has anyone read about the benefits of flaxseed oil? Guess it can't hurt, huh?
Julie, I was curious about your comment regarding the mercury content so I looked it up. This is what I found.
****Contrary to popular rumor, fish oil supplements are not loaded with mercury. These supplements are made primarily from smaller fish that live near the top of the ocean (e.g., sardines, anchovies, herring, menhaden). Their short life cyle and high water location minimizes the opportunity to accumulate mercury. As a metal, mercury is water soluble and would be found in the protein, not the fat tissue, of the fish. Even so, these oils also go through distillation in their production. Independent testing has consistently shown that fish oil supplements are relatively free of contamination
