I am in my 40s and have been very happy with GuruNanda Pulling Oil ($14.99). I have always tried other oils for oil pulling but I stop after a few weeks because I can't tolerate the cleansing in my system. Maybe my system is too weak or I'm using too much oil. I have tried olive oil and coconut oil in the past. Both were good initially until I kept doing it and got a reaction from the cleansing, so of course I stopped.
This product on the other hand has not caused me any severe cleansing reactions. I was not sure what to expect but I have noticed my mind is clearer. I have little more energy too. I keep the product next to my nightstand so the minute I wake up I do my oil pulling.
I started out with much less than the recommended amount and gradually have been taking a little more. I like that it is refreshing due to the peppermint oil in it.
The ingredients are all organic and non-GMO! A plus for me. With so much discussion about products being GMO, I feel safe with this one! There is no fluoride as well. I love that too!
I can't say that I have had any other benefits. I will keep taking it and see if it will cause weight loss and decreased pain. I suffer with a left shoulder injury and have constant pain but so far this has not helped with that. I do think my gums have improved and my mouth does feel cleaner.
If I were to change anything it would be the plastic bottle it comes in. I would prefer it be a glass bottle if possible.
All in all, I think it is a must-try for all those seeking to have a more controlled experience with oil pulling. It has been a positive experience for me.
