Why Our Products are Superior

The following are 9 principles I have established so you can have the ultimate confidence and satisfaction from Mercola Premium Products:

  1. My products are researched and developed personally by myself and my team. I can only bring you products that have been extensively researched and vetted by myself and my product development team of scientists, engineers and product development specialists. If I do not have first-hand knowledge and experience of what goes into my products and their effects, I will not bring them to market.
  2. Enhanced Bioavailability. Most of the ingredients in my consumable products are foods or are derived from foods. These ingredients, which have specific health benefits, are not always as well absorbed by the body. To solve this, I use unique technologies to help enhance absorption, improve bioavailability and extend their effects to help you get the most benefits from these ingredients.
  3. Clean ingredients. My consumable products have a pre-determined formula to include clean ingredients to fulfill that formula. I continuously and repeatedly warn about the dangers of many toxic ingredients and contaminants which can affect your health that are found in many other health products. My team has an extensive list of “do not use” ingredients that provide no nutritional benefit. Many manufacturers use flow agents or lubricants to help run processing equipment faster that actually detract from product quality. An example is magnesium stearate – a processing aid which has no nutritional value. Magnesium stearate is not a source of magnesium. I don’t allow magnesium stearate in any of my products.
  4. No GMOs. I have consistently spoken and written about the dangers of GMOs. I do not allow genetically engineered ingredients in my products and all my products are free of genetically modified organisms. Even the cotton plugs in my supplement bottles are made from organic non-GMO cotton.
  5. Protection from degradation. Many of my products are food based and food can spoil over time. I use protective technologies to prevent spoilage and rancidity due to oxygen and moisture exposure. My liquid capsules are all made of hard capsule shells which have enhanced protection when compared with typical softgels.
  6. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). In order to ensure the best quality products, all my products are manufactured to the appropriate GMPs specifically set for each product. My manufacturers are certified, and my team audits their facilities regularly.
  7. My products are tested. My products are tested for contamination, adulteration, potency, and performance. Products are tested at multiple stages during production and even after production for stability or failure analysis.
  8. Sustainability. I predominantly choose ingredients and packaging that are sustainable, recyclable, and have minimum impact on our planet’s environment. This action supports regenerative agriculture and other sustainable programs.
  9. Continuous improvement. Myself and my team are always working to improve my products – when we find better ingredients, better processes, better packaging - I bring these to you, and we make every effort possible to have no increase in price.

With each of my products put through this rigorous and thorough set of 9 principles, you can be certain that you are purchasing truly premium health products to help you and your loved ones take control of your health
