A Revolutionary New Healthy Coffee

Coffee has been around for most of modern history. It’s commonly the drink of choice for breakfast, lunch, and even dinner. Of course, coffee is delicious and pairs wonderfully with a variety of popular foods. However, coffee hasn’t traditionally been associated as “healthy.” That is, not until now.

Thanks to a revolutionary new product that’s called Organ Gold, coffee-lovers can enjoy additional benefits to drinking their favorite beverage. That’s because Organo Gold is changing both the coffee and the tea industry with its new combination of ingredients.

It boasts an infusion of an ancient Chinese herb, called Ganoderma Lucium, which dates back 4,000 years in Chinese tradition. Modern research has proven that antioxidants are an important anti-cancer and health promotion factor in our daily diets. Luckily, this ancient herb is an antioxidant and adaptogen all in one. It works with the body’s natural chemistry to promote healthy functioning.

Organo Gold has been said to help people improve when suffering from the following afflictions:

Low energy
High blood pressure
High cholesterol
Kidney dysfunction
Liver dysfunction

If the purported health benefits aren’t enough, there are also a variety of delicious flavors to choose from. It seems that nowadays everyone has their own idea of what their coffee should taste like. Organ Gold offers something for everyone.

Organo Gold was founded in 2008 in Vancouver, Canada. It sells certified organic coffee and also a variety of personal products. It proudly operates in over 35 countries around the world.

Bernardo Chua is the founder and CEO of Organo Gold. He is well known for delivering quality products to consumers everywhere while providing a great opportunity for his associates to earn a living while marketing these products.

Bernardo Chua is the recipient of the prestigious Dangal ng Bayan award due to his efforts in the industry. His company, Organo Gold, also received more than one People’s Choice Award. These prestigious Dangal ng Bayan awards were founded in the Philippines by the National Consumer Affairs Foundation to give recognition to companies and individuals who act as positive role models through commerce in their industries. Chua was also honored as “Outstanding Global Entrepreneur.”

As an extension of Chua’s ambitions, the Facebook shows that Organo Gold promotos a lifestyle of health and longevity. It offers various products offering the prized Ganoderma Lucidium, which is a mushroom that contains antioxidant properties and has been encouraged by practitioners of Chinese medicine for hundreds of years.  Bernardo Chua has seen Organo Gold build up all over the world, and even most recently into Turkey.  That’s what comes with providing a high quality product that resonates with people everywhere.

What Dog Food Do Vets Recommend?

Though there are many brands of dog food on the market, there’s much consumer confusion over which brands are the healthiest. Many people are also under the impression that raw meat is the healthiest dog food, because they feel it’s what their animal’s wolf ancestors would have eaten in the wild. However, this is a myth. Wolves eat a combination of meat, grains and plants in the wild. They’re actually omnivores; and only 70% of their diet consists of meat. In fact, this type of healthy omnivorous balance is only available in one popular store brand, Beneful.

You can sometimes find a combination of meat, veggies and grains in other boutique dog food brands like Blue Buffalo, Petfresh and others. However, when you are able to locate brands like this, they’re typically too expensive for the average pet owner to afford; when you consider how much food your dog eats on average. Sometimes these more expensive brands will only adequately feed your dog for something like $3 or more per serving. That really adds up when you could be feeding your dog healthier for less than $1 per serving with a brand like Beneful.

You can mix wet and dry foods or just feed your dog one or the other at various servings. It doesn’t matter. Overall, you will save money over expensive brands when you buy Beneful.

A recent article discussed the fact that most consumers want their dogs to eat healthier. Going organic has become a trend in pet care, the same as it’s become a trend for self care. Many new dog food brands feature ingredients we’ve never seen before in dog food like:

-Freeze dried blueberries and cranberries,



-Green beans,


-Game birds,

-Pacific catch fish, and


In addition, you will find many formulas geared toward individual pet health. Therefore, in addition to puppy and adult recipes, you’ll also find recipes that will help to:

-Improve senior dog health,

-Encourage weight loss and healthy weight management,

-Support energy and play in active dogs, and

-Original recipes that encourage general health and nutrition

Brands like Beneful, Blue Buffalo, Petfresh and some organic brands will feature these ingredients and recipe styles.
