I used to take fish oil pills every day until I heard the recent studies concerning how they can do more harm than good, so I switched to flax seed oil. I suffer from dry eye and need extra internal oils into my body and I found that the flax seed works just as well as the fish oil. It is also less expensive and has no fishy odors. I haven't noticed any benefit to my hair or nails as other reviewers have suggested but I only take one pill per day instead of the 2-3 recommended on the bottle. With supplements I always try to take the least possible does to get a desired outcome, and one per day does a great job of keeping my eyes moist and soothed. I've heard other people use this product for heart health and lowering cholesterol as well so I figure I"m getting extra health benefits as well. I feel much better using a natural product than using chemical eye drops or prescription medications.
