Well I finally decided to give flaxseed oil a try for general health purposes. Plus my wife has been taking it while pregnant and it definitely helps with her fatigue. She was also taking liquid calcium and said that tasted awful. I tried the calcium first and it was OK, so I figured the flaxseed oil would also be fine (since she said it was much better than the calcium). Unfortunately, we must have an opposite reaction because that was the worst thing I have ever tasted! Hmmm, maybe it mixes well with something; something like everclear (well after a few drinks anyways). 😉

  1. Erik, it may be a hormone thing with Brandy liking it. You know, she probably things pickles taste great with ice cream too! It is interesting that your fatigue is going into remission as you decrease the dose frequency of the rebif. Of course the lower fatigue rate could just be from the days getting shorter, and your Viking genepool liking that better.

  2. FINALLY! Ok, once you start on the Flax, look into Evening Primrose Oil. I’ve been on it for a few years now and can say that it has done more good than harm. GLA baby.

  3. I’ve been taking the EPO for a while, though not so much lately. Lately, my disdain for treatment has been all encompassing. I do agree that it does help.

  4. Mouse,
    ;-). While there has certainly been a shift in her tastes it hasn’t been enough to cause that much of a shift. We tend to vary in our tastes anyway.

  5. Ew! Liquid flax oil is nasty. My brother & I once dared each other to do shots of rancid flax oil. Very, very bad idea 😛
    The capsules are very large but you can get it in capsule form 🙂

  6. I agree, flaxseed oil can be a little hard to take. I just started adding it to my diet and so far have tried mixed with yogurt (ew!) and mixed with oatmeal (cleverly absorbed some of the taste). Actually, I bought a flaxseed oil that is infused with cinnamon, which *seemed* like a good idea at the time—I’m hoping to find that it has a stronger taste than plain flaxseed oil.

  7. secretblogger,
    I’m just glad that I am not the only one that stuggles with the taste of it. It is certainly one of the most “unique” tasting things I’ve ever had!
