Coconut oil. This oil is a controversial one. A solid at room temperature, coconut oil is a saturated fat — but not all saturated fats are created equal. “This isn’t the same as the saturated fat found in red meat that clogs your arteries,” says Warren. Coconut oil has a high amount of medium-chain fatty acids, which are harder for the body to convert into stored fat, she adds. However, the AHA advises those with high cholesterol to avoid coconut oil. “It would be difficult to get your LDL cholesterol into healthy ranges eating a lot of coconut oil,” agrees Kimberly Gomer, MS, RD, director of nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami.
Some tips for recognizing real EVOO are to beware of any brand that costs less than $10 a liter, look for a seal from the International Olive Oil Council and check the harvesting date on the label. Additionally, if it’s labeled as “light,” “pure” or a “blend,” it isn’t virgin-quality. And finally, opt for dark bottles, as they protect the oil from oxidation.
Nature’s Script also sells a pet CBD tincture in 150mg, 300mg, and 1,000mg concentrations. As a general rule of thumb, low-concentration oils are a good option for smaller dogs while larger concentrations may be more suitable for larger breeds – but pet owners should always check with their vet beforehand. In addition to standard shipping, Nature’s Script offers expedited delivery for customers in the contiguous U.S.

I like that the seller sells their own product on Amazon. I also like their responsiveness to questions. This was what led me to try HolistiHemp. I tend to go through cycles of insomnia, largely because of my job. I also have issues with anxiety and being withdrawn from life because of the anxiety. I’ve tried other hemp oils, and found one that I liked, but then Amazon discontinued carrying it. I found this one. I am well versed in essential oils and understand that the carrier oil can make a big difference. Given that the seller is also the product producer, I was happy to try out this hemp oil. I’ve been really happy with it. I’m likely to try the 2500mg oil, as well, especially in the evening, for when my insomnia really flares up. I’ve noticed a significant decrease in my anxiety since taking it. If I take it steadily throughout the day (so every 3-4 hours), my anxiety is almost non-existent, and I sleep like a dream. If I have a nutso day and only take it AM and PM, I still have the 50% decrease in anxiety. I then just have to take more to sleep. I have been more outgoing. My concentration has been better. I don’t dread the mundane tasks as much. I’m not as easily frustrated by the pricklies throughout my day. We use it with our dogs, too, and they have responded well to it, as well. I think the coconut carrier oil definitely makes a difference.
I have been recently diagnosed with a rare brain disease. This product helps with the debilitating headaches and the extreme nausea. My geneticist recommended this product to me. My doctor is on the cutting edge of genetic research and is highly regarded and published in several scientific journals. This product is effective and the best part is the fact that there are no side effects like other medications.
