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.
