Dr. Joseph Mercola Explains why Organic Food is good for you

Dr. Joseph Mercola has been giving dietary advice to his patients and subscribers of his website,, for over a decade. For Mercola, the more natural the food, the healthier it is for you.

Nowadays however, there’s a thin line to what’s natural and what isn’t, what’s organic and what’s not. As part of his practice, Dr. Mercola regularly conducts product reviews and research to determine which foods are the best for your health. Among the products he recommends include:

Free-Range Organic Chicken – This chicken is definitely healthier than KFC and most of the chicken you find in restaurants and groceries. These free-range chickens are raised in Amish Country, Pennsylvania, and have been certified 100% organic from “egg to plate” in New York and Pennsylvania, and contains no antibiotics, hormones, artificial ingredients, and herbicides or pesticides used in the soil or the feed, giving you the juiciest and tastiest meat you’ll ever find. This chicken is an excellent source of healthy protein and amino acids to help you gain more energy, avoid diseases, increase strength and prevent premature aging. The chicken can be ordered whole, in quantities of two or three packages, or in choice cuts of boneless/skinless breast and thigh packages. Orders are shipped only on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays when they are delivered from the farms to ensure maximum freshness and quality.

Grass-Fed Cheese – Why is grass-fed cheese better than grain-fed cheese? The answer is simple. Grass-fed cheese contains a perfect balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats – essential fatty acids which the body needs but cannot manufacture on its own. Omega-6 is a “bad fat,” as studies show that it may increase the risk of a number of diseases, while Omega-3 is known as a “good fat” because it helps reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. This grass-fed cheese from Swissland is made from certified 100% organic milk, rich in calcium, protein, beta carotene and Vitamins A, D and E. It also contains five times more conjugated linoleic acid, a potent cancer-fighting nutrient, than grain-fed cheese. This nutritious and healthy cheese is available in 11 varieties: baby swiss, brick, cheddar, Colby, feta, garlic & herb, mozzarella, Pepper Jack and Veggie Jack, all available for direct cold-storage shipping.

Organic Blueberries – You love eating them in your pies, jellies, muffins, cereals and other snacks but did you know that blueberries are among the healthiest fruits? Blueberries are low in sugar and rich in antioxidants, with the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry ranking them second to Mexican red beans in terms of antioxidant capacity. Anthocyanin is the phytonutrient responsible for its deep blue color and high antioxidant storage. More antioxidants means more health benefits for your immune system, helping lower the risk of cancer and other diseases. These wild organic blueberries are delivered to you frozen from eastern Canada and are smaller but sweeter than most of the common variety you find in local stores.

These are just some of the premium products which combine health, quality and satisfaction. Discover more amazing finds at
