A new study by Dr George Jelinek and others published on Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis website, the HOLISM Study, shows that in the treatment of MS there was no significant effect of taking fish oil alone for omega-3, whereas those supplementing with flaxseed (linseed) oil alone had a reduction in relapse rate of 61%. The OMS website and Dr Jelinek now recommend multiple sclerosis patients to take linseed (flax) oil in preference to fish oil as a supplement for omega-3.
