Um, why do you want to buy flax seed oil in the first place?

It starts deteriorating about 30minutes after being pressed and after a few days you have a very rancid oil that is very bad for your body.

No shop I ever visited (including the very organic ones) has kept it in the fridge - which is probably a waste anyway as you do not know when it was pressed and where is was before . like in a 35 degree C hot delivery van in summer.

Thanks Uli . that's the info I wanted.
Do you recommend buying flax seeds and grinding them to a fine powder ?

because flaxseed oil is vegan over fish oil

That's the way to go, I use a coffee grinder (used only for this purpose) to grind all my nuts and seeds as required.

Made in NZ cold pressed flax seed oil is available online.

Much better than going to any store/

If that is what you want you can of course buy flax seeds and grinding them to a fine powder.

Personally I would recommend to eat a varied diet - which of course would include meat and fish, eggs etc.

If you do not want that please do research a lot!

Yes and hardly anything of that oil is useful to the human body.
Do google or whatever engine you use - and you might find that very little is useful to humans.
