OK so if you have been following my blog for several years & before that were just following me on Facebook you know I only recommend 2 brands of coconut oil EVER for taking & oil pulling. You also know I have bought & accepted hundreds of brands of so called Organic, Raw, Unrefined, Un processed, Virgin coconut oils to only be disappointed & say I could not recommend them because they were a joke & could be used for cooking, baking, & DIY (toothpaste, deodorant, skin care, hair care etc), but not taking & for oil pulling, no way, no how.
All those brands, & some with big claims of health, freshness, purity etc & they just did not give me the results desired, felt gunky in my mouth, turned my stomach, smelled or looked foul. The brands I tried were everything from high priced brands to cheaper brands all with disappointment & me having to say no, I can not recommend this brand. Other than a few brands I was sent to review so had to write up a post I do not tend to name the brands that do not cut it & should be avoided, so some have messaged or emailed me asking if so & so brand is good? so let me answer that for you, no it is not!
If you are not getting the results hoped for from your brand of coconut oil it so really can be the brand you are using, yes brand matters very much for desired results.
I take raw coconut oil daily & I oil pull with it, I get very noticeable health benefits such as weight loss, clearer sight, less brain fog, clear up skin issues, relieve tinnitus (ear ringing), joint pain, auto immune issues, allergies, oral health on & on & on. When I try a new brand I try to give them at least a week or 2 of using them to know if they compare to the 2 brands I currently recommend & use (see those brands here). Usually within the first day I start noticing symptoms that are returning & by a week I am gaining weight, dizzy & feeling bad. So far I have not made it beyond a week with any brands other than the 3 I now recommend.
You want results from your coconut oil, you want the benefits you read so much about, you have heard all the rage about how great coconut oil is. So trust me to get those benefits do not get a brand that will turn you off to the idea & sabotage the benefits. I of course will say other brands are great for cooking & baking even DIY I even use Expeller Pressed (or pure refined coconut oils) for cooking & baking & save my raw oil for oil pulling & taking. I personally also prefer the raw for my skin care & deodorant but most especially prefer my raw for my DIY toothpastes. So you can still use other brands just be picky when it comes to taking it & oil pulling with it.
Enter Garden of Life Virgin Coconut oil: I purchased this myself, it was not sent to me to review though even if it had been the results would be the same. I realized that Garden of Life had a coconut oil several months back & they are a company I highly recommend & trust for there other raw amazing products like Raw Meal, Raw Protein, Primal Defense, Supplements for kids to adults (check out the Garden of Life Products on Amazon here). Not sure how in the world I missed they have been selling raw coconut oil for awhile now, but Garden of Life always has high quality items that are amazing for health.
I decided to order right away because I was so hoping this could be my 3rd brand to recommend. So I bought me a jar on Amazon, & with Prime shipping was free. When it arrived I opened it & right away I knew it smelled great, not all gross & sour, or wrong. I got a spoon & tasted it, yup it was as I hoped it would be. So I started the very next day to use it for at least a week taking it & oil pulling. It worked great, I continued till I emptied the jar.
Ladies & Gentlemen we have a winner: For me adding Garden Of Life Coconut oil to my recommend list is not a small thing, it is a big deal. 2 years of searching & my list stayed at 2 amazing coconut oils, just 2. So happily I now tell you my list at long last has grown to 3 amazing coconut oils for health.
