The natural health industry has become increasingly popular over the last few years, with people looking for natural products to enhance their health and wellbeing. New brands and companies are appearing on the market all the time and as with any industry, knowing which brands to choose and trust can be very difficult and confusing.
So how do you know who to trust?
This is such a good question and one we are asked all of the time, by both new customers and even by well known and very experienced nutritionists, who know the market really well.
When it comes to quality, knowing who to trust and for me the gold standard, Dr Mercola products immediately come to mind. Mercola.com was established in 1997 and is loaded with thousands of great articles on health and fitness, optimal nutrition, health videos and recipes, plus much more. Best of all, the information is Free and independent, with the site being funded by Dr Mercola himself, without any advertisers, silent partners, or corporate parents.
Mercola.com was one of the first sites that grabbed my attention back in the late 90’s and I was so impressed with the site and the work Dr Mercola was doing to offer actively researched, up to date health information and advice, that I flew to Chicago to meet the man and his team to learn as much as I could. During my time in Chicago I met up with various health experts who introduced me to some of the finest products on the market, some of which I launched to the European market back in 1994 and are now the industry standard and some of Red23’s best selling products. So my trip to see Dr Mercola was not only educational, but the foundation and motivation for me to build Red23, with the same integrity and principles as Dr Mercola and Mercola.com.
Why Dr Mercola Products are so good?
Like any independent company, Dr Mercola has the whole market to pick from when deciding which products he chooses to add to his range. Many companies will go for the products with the biggest profit margin, but like Red23, Dr Mercola will always choose the finest quality, backed with an educational and very easy to understand article on why each product is chosen. Each article will include key benefits, quality of ingredients used, ingredients that were avoided and why. I’ve often said to our customers, that you can learn more from Mercola.com in a week than most Doctors will ever know about health, controversial but in my experience with hundreds of doctors very true!
Dr Mercola products will always be Free from:
- GMO ingredients
- Chemicals & Pesticides
- Heavy Metals
- Cheap flow agents, Fillers & Binders
- Artificial Sweeteners, Colours & Flavours
One of Dr Mercola’s flagship products is his Krill Oil. Derived from Neptune Krill, found in the pristine deep water seas, far from industrial areas, Dr Mercola Krill Oil is loaded with Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) and antioxidants, which offer a whole range of health benefits.
Dr Mercola Krill Oil is manufactured using a patented and unique cold extraction process and is tested to be free from heavy metals, dioxins, PCBs and other contaminants. Also available is Dr Mercola Krill Oil for Women, which has the added benefits for women of evening primrose oil. Unlike many fish oils, Dr Mercola Krill Oil has no fishy aftertaste and is completely burp free!
I’ve been working in the Natural Health Industry for over 12 years and have seen so many companies enter the market purely to make money from heavily, marketed low quality products. The biggest stores on the high street and the major supermarkets are a classic example of where to not buy health products. Buy one get one for a penny is all you need to know…
High quality products are expensive to manufacture, you won’t see Ferrari or Lamborghini offering these kind of deals and it isn’t possible with world class natural health products either!
A brand you can trust and one that Red23 fully endorse and recommend is Dr Mercola, each product is carefully selected and is often the finest available in it’s category.
When buying direct from Mercola.com in the US, they even offer a Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee, which offers a full refund (less shipping charges) if you choose to return an item within 60 days. The only condition is that the product must be in it’s original packaging and have at least half of the product remaining. This shows the confidence that Dr Mercola has in his products, which I have too.
