Dr. Mercola Products Review
Hi everyone! Prior to Christmas, I was contacted by Joan at Mercola.com to review some of Dr. Mercola’s products. I like Dr. Mercola and his insightful, informative website. Joseph M. Mercola is an alternative medicine proponent and osteopathic physician. Mercola.com is dedicated to providing free health and wellness articles, natural products, as well as other resources to people worldwide, inspiring them to take control of their health. Mercola.com is Rated the #1 Natural Health Website. Therefore, I was tickled for the opportunity to sample and review four of his products.
1. Complete Probiotics
I am a HUGE fan of probiotics knowing their importance in the role of gut health and our overall well-being. The probiotic that I had been using changed their formula a while back and I didn’t notice it until the last box I was taking was causing me some discomfort and symptoms of a food allergy. Upon reading the label carefully, I saw that it now has SOY – are you kidding me!! In a probiotic! Many people are sensitive or allergic to soy products these days (yours truly included) and I know when I ingest it – my body gives me certain unpleasant symptoms. So, I was thrilled to try Dr. Mercola’s probiotic formula. Check out his article – Probiotics: One of The Most Important Supplements You Can Take.
Dr. Mercola Complete Probiotics features 10 bacteria strains. Each two capsule serving delivers 70 billion CFU. The proprietary probiotic blend features:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- DDS-1 along with bifidobacterium lactis
- L. plantarum
- L. casei
- L. rhamnosus
- L. brevis
- B. longum
- Streptococcus thermophilus
- L. salivarius and B. bifidum
Dr. Mercola Complete Probiotic capsules are acid and bile resistant. I was pleased to see this product contains no dairy, lactose, wheat, gluten, soy, corn, eggs, yeast, sugar, artificial flavors, preservatives or GM ingredients. Major score!
The first day of taking this probiotic, no problems or adverse reactions. Remember, that each body is different and will respond to supplements uniquely. I took the entire bottle over a 30 day period and was very pleased. I will be continuing with this probiotic in my supplement arsenal. I order mine HERE.
2. Organic Greens Powder
Dr. Mercola’s Organic Greens Powder is a great source for helping to increase your daily nutrient intake when you can’t get all of the vegetables and green leafy foods that are recommended. Perhaps you’ve tried other green food supplements, only to find them to be disappointing in taste and texture. Not this one. It is smooth and tastes wonderful. Organic Greens has been tested to ensure it’s non-GMO and gluten-free.
Organic Greens is a high-quality formula that is:
- Quick and easy to use
- Easily taken with shakes, smoothies, puddings, coconut cream fat bombs and protein powder drinks
- Sweetened naturally with organic stevia extract
Plus, it doesn’t have a strong, unpleasant “green” taste even though it’s packed with:
- Powdered forms of an assortment of organic vegetables plus organic cereal grasses from North America
- Two top superfoods – Chlorella and Spirulina
- An organic Mushroom Blend for immune support*
- Exceptional alkalizing extracts that provide antioxidant benefits, including one of Japan’s best kept secrets – Green Matcha – Apple and Green Tea*
- Two stunning adaptogen ingredients – Maca Root and Rhodiola
I used this greens powder in my post workout protein shakes, mixed into coconut cream fat bombs, chocolate avocado pudding and still sneaking it in various recipes. A little goes a long way, but I will be purchasing more when I need it. I order mine HERE.
3. Whole Food Multivitamin Plus
Whole Food Multivitamin Plus provides you with high-potency amounts of an exclusive antioxidant formula that includes:*
- Natural beta-carotene — healthy vision and immune system support*
- Vitamin C — promotes tissue growth and repair, and healthy gums*

I took this multi-vitamin for a few days, but something in the formula did not agree with me. SO, Scott got take this whole food multi-vitamin. He had no reactions and says it is has provided energy and nutrients in a bio-available form. It is a bit pricey, but a very good whole food formula.
4. Rhodiola Extract
Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea), sometimes called Arctic root or golden root, is considered an adaptogenic herb, meaning that it acts in non-specific ways to increase resistance to stress, without disturbing normal biological functions. The herb grows at high altitudes in the arctic areas of Europe and Asia, and its root has been used in traditional medicine in Russia and the Scandinavian countries for centuries. Studies of its medicinal applications have appeared in the scientific literature of Sweden, Norway, France, Germany, the Soviet Union and Iceland. Rhodiola is still widely used in Russia as a tonic and remedy for fatigue, poor attention span, and decreased memory; it is also believed to make workers more productive. In Sweden and other Scandinavian countries it is used to increase the capacity for mental work and to boost general strength and vitality.
I’ve taken this herb before and know of its immense benefits and longevity aspects. I took one capsule of Dr. Mercola’s Rhodiola extract per day till I finished the bottle and was pleased with the quality of this product.
Overall, I am really impressed with Dr. Mercola’s products that I was given the opportunity to sample and review. Thank you Joan!! Please feel free to look into Dr. Mercola’s products for you will find quality. Hope you enjoyed the product review and I will be back soon.
