The oils I use are Hemp, Chia, Pumpkin, and Olive. I try to avoid Flaxseed oil, as a daily use will lead to gamma-linolenic acid deficiency, if used alone. Hemp has it, and i usually mix it with Chia as it has twice more omega-3 than hemp. I use all 3 throughout the day. 1table spoon of Chia oil alone is the recommended daily intake of omega-3. I finish the day with about 2-5 tbl sp. of all mixed oils together, giving me all the types of fats needed for function.
Hope this helps! -Robert-
Re: GLA (Gamma linolenic acid) deficiency mentioned in Robert's post below.
The recommendation as I understand it - even if you are taking fish oil - is to balance it with Omega 6 (GLA) and Vitamin E.
GLA is important for women's health in particular, as it helps balance hormones.
I'm a big fan of Borage Oil (sometimes called Starflower Oil) for GLA .
I also mostly use hemp seed oil (cold) and use coconut oil for frying / spreading etc.
Honestly, just buy VEGA EFA oil: http://shop.sequelnaturals.com/Featured-Items_2/antioxidant_EFA_oil...
Please note: it comes in two sizes. It is the purest, cleanest and best tasting oil I have ever had, or used. it is not overly expensive either, and you won't have to worry about mixing your oils - just squirt and go! I put it in my smoothies/protein shakes, in salad dressing, on veggies, in dip, and all sorts of other things.
Sequel was also kind enough to offer in-depth information about oils, too: http://myvega.com/products/antioxidant-efa-oil-blend/faqs
I hope this helps!
I agree, i did recently changed my habit of mixing and simply went directly to the Vega EFA oil blend. Its more
powerful, complete, and cost/volume is cheaper, and is super high quality. It saves us the trouble of trying to
figure out what to mix, and also, we eat grains and nuts too, so we got plenty of everything in our meals.
