Dear Myran
Flaxseed oil contains a form of essential fatty acid called ALA which has to be transformed by the body into the 2 most important essential fatty acids, which are called EPA and DHA. Salmon oil already contains EPA and DHA so it is a more available form of the essential fatty acids and is usually recommended over flaxseed oil.
