I found grass fed/finishd beef in target for $7, which is closer and cheaper than whole foods. I called the company and they said they supplement the cows with apple cider vinegar and molasses licks. The ACV is fine, U.S wellness does the same... (more)

Citrulline dilates the blood vessels thus improving circulation and nutrient delivery to various muscles and organs. It is safe to use if you don't have low blood pressure. And it's good for you if you have high blood pressure. There is... (more)

A high quality, extra-virgin unrefined coconut oil will not have mold. Since the coconuts are cold-pressed while they are fresh, not dried, and without any heat sources, the coconut oil is able to maintain its natural antibiotic, antimicrobal,... (more)

i think its safe to say its unrefined. The fact that it says "raw extra virgin and cold pressed" implys just that. The refining process extracts with heat, and sometimes even takes away the scent and flavour away too.

The difference is that the nutrient dense paleo diet is likely to be far more satiating. It's a lot easier to stick to a diet and lose weight if you're not hungry all the time.
