Independently Tested Potent & Pure Quality Supplements
USANA Health Sciences, Inc. was founded in 1992 by Dr. Myron Wentz, a premier microbiologist and immunologist. It is a science-based company that develops scientifically advanced nutritional, personal-care, and weight management products.
USANA was founded with a mission to manufacture the highest quality products without compromise, products that people can trust. Because poor manufacturing can destroy great science, ours is one of the few companies to manufacture most of its products in its own state-of-the-art facility. To ensure that the formulas developed are produced consistently, the same process is followed each time manufacturing begins. When raw ingredients first arrive at our manufacturing facility, they are immediately quarantined until they are tested for purity, potency, and quality. If an ingredient fails to meet set standards, it is rejected and returned to the supplier.
As the tablets are being manufactured, they are tested for hardness, thickness, disintegration, fragility, and weight uniformity. An inappropriate thickness can indicate an imbalance in ingredients, just as a slight variance in compression can result in tablets being too hard to disintegrate in the stomach, or too soft, causing them to break apart in the bottle.
Before packaging, the final product is tested once more for potency and purity. After the products are packaged, the foil seals, labels, and cotton are double-and triple-checked by both machines and people. Each step in the quality assurance process is accompanied by a written, detailed procedure.
Every dietary supplement produced by USANA carries a potency guarantee, which ensures that what is stated on the label is actually contained in the product. Our flagship nutritional supplement product, the Essentials™, is a comprehensive vitamin, antioxidant, and mineral dietary supplement that contains more than 40 active ingredients and extracts, far more than the 24 vitamins and minerals commonly considered to be adequate. Our most commonly used supplements, the Essentials™ (our multi-vitamins, mutli-minerals, and wide-range of antioxidants), ActiCal™ (calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and other minerals supplement), Proflavanol™ (our grape seed extract) have all been exhaustively tested by third-party, independent organizations and have been found to contain all ingredients stated on the label. This specific non-profit organization is dedicated to protecting consumers by certifying products are safe, as well as involved in writing standards for food, water, air and consumer goods.
In 2007 the Federal Drug Administration finalized the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for dietary supplements to follow standards as strict as those followed by the pharmaceutical industry, as required under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. Prior to this, many manufacurers of nutritional supplements followed manufaturing practices that were established for food, which were far less stringent. Since the time our company was founded in 1992, our founder, Dr. Myron Wentz, a premier scientist dedicated to optimizing the health of the cells, made the decision that USANA Health Sciences would voluntarily follow the higher, more stringent Good Manufacturing Practices followed by the pharmaceutical industry. Although all companies are required to follow these standards now, from the beginning our company manufactured all of its products according to these higher standards, meaning our company has been, and will continue to go beyond what it is "required" to ensure top quality nutritional supplements for optimal health. *
Pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are federally mandated guidelines for the production of over-the-counter drugs, and are now applied to nutritional supplements. Pharmaceutical GMP cover virtually every aspect of drug (and now nutritional supplement) manufacturing, including facility design and maintenance, raw material specification and control, supplier validation, product design and testing, employee training, process control, finished product release, and complaint handling. USANA Health Sciences, Inc. has followed these standards since its establishment in 1992, years before it was mandated by law in 2007; because it was the right thing to do to ensure better health.
In several countries around the world, such as Australia for example, there is a specific organization which regulates dietary supplements, mandates that manufacturers follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) similar to pharmaceutical GMP in the the United States. As an Australian supplier, USANA Health Sciences is regularly inspected and audited to ensure that we meet their stringent GMP standards. In June of 2006, USANA Health Sciences, Inc. was audited by the this organization and passed with ease.
Aside from meeting the criteria of regular audits, and prior to the 2007 requirement that all supplement manufacturers follow stringent GMPs applicable to the pharmaceutical industry, our company voluntarily obtained additional third-party verification of its GMP status. Our manufacturing facility was certified to be in compliance with GMP requirements. According to this organization, "GMP registration reflects "a continued commitment to ensuring quality and satisfaction and gives companies confidence that their organization operates in conformance to established GMP." It is speaks volumes that USANA Health Sciences voluntarily followed such high standards prior to federal mandates, and will obviously continue to do so.
What About The Amount of Ingredients Contained in the Bottle?
What is NOT a standard in the industry of nutritionals supplements is for all manufacturers to have all the amounts of ingredients in the bottles stated on the label. Often when analyzed, a little more than half of the products tested contained much less than the amount of ingredients stated on the label. That is why it is so important to have third-party verification by such independent labs. Independent labs have tested our products and have posted their results of their finding. Our products have always passed with flying colors each and every time. The same cannot be said for stated on the bottle. Truly, USANA Nutrtionals are products you can trust.
In addition, our products are listed in the Physician's Desk Reference (PDR) and the Canadian Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties (CPS).
It is the mission of our company to develop and provide the highest quality, science-based products. By rigorously testing each product for potency and purity and by having guaranteed amounts of products in the bottle, with up to a million-dollar guarantee that no banned substances can be traced back to our products that would cause an athlete to be banned from their sport, our company sets the standard for excellence in dietary supplement manufacturing. Once again, our products are truly Nutritionals You Can Trust. Olympic and professional athletes use our products with confidence. A significant sports (tennis) organization uses our products because they found them to be the best for their athletes, not because our company paid them to sponsor our products. Olympic athletes have stated that our products made the "difference for them in winning the Gold Medal" in Olympic events (according to Derek Parra, Gold Medalist in 2002 Men's Speed Skating). Many athletes trust their health and performance to USANA.*
Our flagship Set of Antioxidants and Minerals (The Essentials™) and Our Combination Health Pack of Nutritional Supplements (HealthPak 100™) Rate 'Best of the Best' Out of 1,600 Products Evaluated in Canada and The United States.
Our company, a leading global health supplement manufacturer, once again received 5-Star Gold Standard ratings for its nutritional products in the much-anticipated 4th and latest edition of the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements.™
Author Lyle MacWilliam MSc, FP, a former biochemist and educator, released the 1st edition of the guide in 1999 to help consumers make informed, scientifically based decisions about nutritional supplements. The latest edition features detailed comparisons of more than 1,500 products based on a blended standard created from published recommendations of 12 nutritional authorities and 18 rating criteria developed from scientific literature.
Our flagship products, The Essentials™ (a set of antioxidants, vitamins & minerals) and HealthPak 100™ (combination health pack of many of our most commonly used supplements) both received 5-Star Gold Standard ratings and the NutriSearch Gold Medal of Achievement™. Our company is no stranger to this recognition as our products were rated the number one nutritional supplements in the first, second and third editions of this guide.
According to the comparative guide, companies that receive 5-Star Gold Ratings must meet the "highest standards of quality in research, formulations and manufacturing." The guide also noted that companies awarded the NutriSearch Gold Medal of Achievement™ have gone to considerable expense to meet and exceed the most stringent of manufacturing standards. Our company was one of only four companies rated this highly, and asked by publishers to include a company description within the latest edition of the guide.
