I just bough flax oil gelcaps which are 1 gram each. I have been taking a few a day. I think I read somewhere that actual oil is a lot better as it contains more EFA's. So are the gelcaps pretty much worthless? Almost as good? Thanks guys.

its that you have to take so many to match what one serving of the oil will give you

Yup, one tablespoon of flax oil is equal to ~15 of those gelcaps.

Where can you get the oil?

Does the flax oil have a bad taste? Do you take it straight or mix it with a shake? Also, I took fish oil pills once and my burps tasted like hell for about 4 hours after I took it. Does flax oil have the same effect?

Flax oil does have a taste and some people really dislike it. But if you mix it in your protein shake, you'll hardly even taste it.

Fish oil in the bottle is the best deal.
