I think I just answered my own question by reading the answer to the question about omega 3s!

It's true that flaxseed is high in omega 3s which are important for everyone to get enough of, especially if you are feeling depressed.

There is some discussion around if/how well flaxseed oil is absorbed into one's system. It is a popular choice for vegetarians looking for an alternative to fish oil supplements which are also high in omega 3s.

When choosing supplements, be sure to look for high quality products; not all supplements are created equal! Get as much omega 3s from your diet as you can! (Many people who work with a practitioner when taking supplements find that taking them can boost the initial levels of omega 3s and then diet can sustain this level over time.)
