Mercola Awarded 2017 Best of Supplements



Mercola’s Berberine and MicroPQQ Advanced named 2017 Best of Supplements Award Winner from Better Nutrition Magazine

Hoffman Estates, IL, September 19, 2017 – There are countless nutritional supplements on the market today, and it can be tough to stand out amongst the competition. It can be even tougher to produce new products that can help people take control of their health.

However, Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of, is on the leading edge of research and development when it comes to producing high quality health products. Once again, Mercola has received Better Nutrition Magazine’s Best of Supplements Award, this time in 2017 for his Berberine and MicroPQQ Advanced product.

Better Nutrition’s award winners are chosen from survey results collected from experts in the supplement industry, healthcare practitioners, health-food-store owners and their loyal magazine readers.

Dr. Mercola’s latest groundbreaking research is in the area of mitochondrial health. Mitochondria are the cellular energy factories that contribute to one’s overall well-being.

Dr. Mercola’s Berberine and MicroPQQ Advanced now combines two mitochondrial supporting ingredients into one convenient dose. Berberine activates AMPK, an enzyme that plays a crucial role in regulating mitochondrial metabolism and has been shown to support normal blood sugar levels, heart and gut health.* PQQ activates three signaling pathways to optimize mitochondrial function and helps brain cells function more efficiently improving memory and cerebral function.*

“These are some fairly spectacular benefits,” Mercola said, “and because of their powerful mitochondrial support functions, I’ve been taking PQQ and Berberine.”

MicroPQQ is more than twice as effective and stays in your bloodstream three times longer than regular PQQ. Never before have these two powerful ingredients been combined into one formula. At Expo East in Baltimore this year, the predominant east coast trade show in the natural products industry, the introduction of Mercola’s Berberine and MicroPQQ Advanced generated a tremendous degree of positive feedback and excitement.
