USANA Receives NutriSearch Gold Medal

Dan Macuga


USANA Health Sciences Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional supplements company, has received the prestigious Editor's Choice designation in the latest NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements, 5(th) (Consumer) Edition, as well as the NutriSearch Gold Medal of Achievement(TM), the highest distinction possible. This is the third consecutive time USANA has earned the distinguished titles.

USANA is an FDA-registered facility and works tirelessly to adhere to FDA guidelines to manufacture the purest nutritional supplements for its consumers, said Dan Macuga, USANA chief communications officer. Because we produce more than 90 percent of our supplements in-house, as a way to maintain control of the ingredients and manufacturing process, receiving this esteemed distinction of honor, for a third time, is a testament that we take the safety and quality of our products seriously and that we really do practice what we preach.

The guide, which independently compares, reviews and rates more than 1,200 supplements in North America, evaluates not only the nutrients included in a supplement but also the balance of those ingredients [and] manufacturing practices. The latest edition includes recent scientific findings on iodine and vitamin D — two nutrients that have long been underestimated and misunderstood — and has been completely rewritten from cover to cover.

Several of the analytical criteria used by NutriSearch to rate nutritional products have been enhanced as a result of this emergent research. The guide is written as both an educational and consumer-based tool, taking the reader through a detailed explanation of why our nutrient-deficient modern diets demand that we supplement to protect our health and detailing the scientific evidence that shows supplements as effective nutritional tools in the quest for optimal health, said Lyle MacWilliam, MSc, FP, the guide's author.

To reach gold status, USANA not only demonstrated its highest quality of standards, but also subjected its products to a third-party review, which certified analysis of label claim to prove that what's on the label is also in the bottle. USANA has participated in the Quality Certification Program of — the leading provider of independent test results for supplements. The nutritional company has received certification for several of its products in 2013, including its Essentials(TM) and CoQuinone(R) 30 supplements.
