I was told by the center to take flaxseed. I have been but found that is the reason why I have heartburn so bad. Are there any other options out there that you know of instead of flaxseed???? :sklol:

are you using ground flaxseed, whole, or just the oil? how much are you taking? I have gerd (reflux) and haven't food it to be a problem. not sure what you would take instead.

I have been taking the gel caps...1000mg each. I am supposed to take between 3000-9000mg each day but the most I have taken is 2000. So there is no way I could take the full amount each day.

I take 2 capsules with each meal (1000 mg) for a total of 6000 mg and I buy mine at Wal-Mart.

why dont you start just taking fish oil instead?? The point of the flax is to give us our good omegas 3-6-9......
