Discount for HealthTestingCenters.com: Hormone + Metabolic Testing

This post is sponsored by HealthTestingCenters.com. All opinions are sincerely my own.

Learning more about what’s going on inside my body has been a focus of mine in recent years. By that I mean I’ve been trying to get more insight into what hormone imbalances may be contributing to the painful menstrual cycles that I’ve battled for many years now.

I feel super fortunate to have linked up with HealthTestingCenters.com. Through them, I was able to get my hormones tested, as well as have my metabolic function evaluated and learn about my cancer risk factors (kind of a scary thing to know–but I figured why not).

Having these results means that I have some tools in my toolbox to help me figure out what my body needs and what it’s lacking. The best thing about this process that was I was able to get the testing done at my local Quest Diagnostics facility (I didn’t even make an appointment; I was able to walk in on a day that was convenient for me). It was also neat to have this type of testing available to me that I could select online (it was literally like filling up my shopping cart with the tests I wanted).

It took them about a week to get the results back to me, I received them via e-mail and voila! Below is a look at the results I received. I was encouraged to see that my body looks to be functioning at a pretty high level.

The only thing that came up abnormal or “high” is the MHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin) which seems to be a potential indicator of anemia (which my mom has). It basically means that my vitamin b12 and folate levels are low, which effects red blood cells. I’ll be looking more into why that may be the case and how I can aid my body through diet and supplementation to get into a healthier range.

This is a piece of information I’ve never had before and it’s helping me help myself even better than ever. Seriously very grateful to have this information!

CBD Oil Formulation

When shopping for Cannabidiol Oil online it can be hard to tell what brand to go with, so how can you tell the difference between a great product from a bad one?  Take a look at the label to see what is used in it and the concentration of CBD.  Our CBD Oil starts off with only the purest, highest quality CBD Hemp Oil Extract, then we add a splash of a couple of other natural oils you can pronounce to make up our full formula.

How about CBD concentrations?  This is where things get confusing if you have been looking at other oils you have probably noticed the concentrations of CBD range from 20 mg per 30 ml to around 2,000 mg per 30 ml.  You want to make sure you are buying a product that has enough CBD to provide the benefit you need.  If you are unsure please reach out to us, or consult with your physician first.

How to Take it

Unfortunately, due to FDA restrictions we can’t advise individuals on how much CBD Oil to take for specific conditions.  Most people end up taking 2-4 servings per day, during different times of the day.  Serving sizes are listed on the individual bottles and vary from 5mg (250mg bottle) to 15mg (1,000mg bottle). The CBD Oil bottles come with a dropper, so it is easy to adjust your serving size accordingly.

Some individuals require more or less than described above, as everybody is different. The key is to listen to your body and adjust accordingly.

Lab Testing

It does not matter what type of CBD product you are looking at, you need to ensure the products are lab tested in a certified lab that frequently tests for Cannabinoids (including CBD) in various products.  This is to make sure you are getting what you paid for and the results are reliable, as there are nuances to reliably testing CBD Oils.

We transparently post all of our lab results on our lab results and product pages.

My Nganic CBD Experience

Though it seems to be a controversial topic (mainly due to misinformation about CBD), I truly feel fortunate to have access to the many medicinal aspects of the hemp plant. From taking this CBD oil under my tongue a few times a day, I get no “high” feeling, no psychedelic effects. Instead, it’s calming and relaxing while also helping me mentally dial in at the same time.

I’ve heard from many former coworkers and colleagues that CBD has helped them heaps with their anxiety, stress and inability to fall asleep. I would not categorize myself as someone who deals with regular anxiety, but I am always searching to have a calmer disposition; one that allows me to handle whatever life throws at me (without completely losing my marbles).

After using this CBD oil for only a few days, I could notice a positive difference in how I felt. I actually like taking CBD as a part of my morning routine to start my day right. I feel like it puts me in a more even keel headspace. It also happens to pair well with morning meditations if that’s your cup of tea. The peppermint flavor of the oil I have is super easy to throw back (I do half a drop under my tongue + let some absorb for about 10 seconds before I swallow).

For the first time today, I added CBD to my coffee and the word perfection comes to mind. The peppermint was delicious with the java flavors and I enjoyed making it a part of my cup of coffee even more than just taking it by itself.

I appreciate Nganic’s practices and their noticeable commitment + passion for high quality CBD oil. Crossing paths with this brand makes me excited and reminds me that there are people out there creating beautiful products that truly help people live a more balanced life that feels good.
