I've seen flaxseed oil posted on other PT members logs. What exactly is it and what are the benefits? Yesterday I happened to purchase pretzel sticks and I notice they are whole wheat made with honey and flaxseed oil. They are REALLY yummy, which is a problem, because at lunch I consumed 21 of them -- at whopping 330 calories!

Flaxseed oil has Omega-3 fatty acids, which is one of the essential fatty acids that your body is unable to make, so you have to get it from your food.

from PEERtrainer University:
Probiotics vs. Flaxseed Oil
Flaxseed oil is a source of the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA for short. It has no probiotic properties.
"I prefer flaxseeds in whole form, as you get fiber and protein with them too. In either case, unless you avoid fish for specific reasons, I would recommend using fish oil to get your omega-3s in the form of EPA/DHA as they are much more potent.
ALA has only around 10 – 15% the potency of EPA/DHA, because our conversion of it to the active forms is poor."
