    One better than the other? take both? Curious if they do the same thing...

    I eat a fair amount of fish in my usual diet, so i go with flax...

    Fishoil is >>>> flax seed oil.

    Flax only has about a 15% conversion to usable EPA/ DHA.

    Flax Seed oil does contain lignans which fishoil doesn't but that's about it as far as the only advantage.
