What is the difference between Vanadium nicotinate gylcinate chelate versus Vanadium amino acid chelate?

What is the difference between Vanadium nicotinate gylcinate chelate versus Vanadium amino acid chelate?

How to maximize absorption of algal EPA/DHA supplement? Does flaxseed with the same meal help/hurt? Do other oils, minerals/vits compete with EPA/DHA?

Complex question!: Take these supplements with a meal as the digestive enzymes will help increase absorption. Theoretically taking additional digestive enzymes could help.Flax seed has to be converted to EPA and DHA to function similarly. I know of no other nutrients that compete with absorption but because flax is high in fiber and used to lower cholesterol by binding, you should take EPA/DHA separate from flax. ...Read more
