USANA MagneCal D for a Strong, Healthy Body

Share Button

USANA MagnaCalDArticle from USANA Australia website.

You have places to go, miles to run, and mountains to climb.

You’ll go as far as your bones will take you. So, support the foundation for your active life with USANA MagneCal D.

USANA MagneCalD

Much like Active Calcium™ Plus, MagneCal D is perfect for supporting your bone health, whether you’re 18 or 80. But this powerfully balanced blend has a few improvements. Just take a look inside our newest product:

  • Magnesium
    It’s the first part of the product name for a reason. Magnesium helps your body absorb calcium, which is critical in supporting bone health. It’s important to maintain an ideal ratio of calcium to magnesium in the body, but most people simply do not consume enough magnesium. That’s why we’ve increased the daily dose to 500 mg—making it equally balanced with the calcium.
    Magnesium also supports more than 300 processes in the body, including muscle strength and function, energy production, and cardiovascular and metabolic health.
  • Calcium
    You know calcium is important for maintaining bone health. And new dietary surveys show most people are consuming more of this important nutrient, which is why we’ve rebalanced our formula to include 500 mg of calcium.
  • Vitamin D
    With 400 IU of vitamin D, MagneCalD helps nourish stronger, healthier bones. Vitamin D is also important in maintaining immune health.

These three nutrients work in perfect harmony to support healthy bone mineralisation, and neuromuscular function for a strong, healthy body. Or in other words, MagneCal D helps support a solid foundation for your healthy, active life. Add it to your daily USANA CellSentials® for maximum support. It’s also, vegetarian friendly.

Purchase the new USANA MagneCal D from USANA Approved website.

Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.

USANA Cellsentials® – Back to the basics

Share Button

USANA CELLSENTIALSArticle from USANA Australia website.

In order to understand why we take nutritional supplements and their benefits, we first need to go back to the basics.

So what are cells?

Without cells, we wouldn’t exist! They are basically the building blocks of all living things. Our bodies are composed of trillions of different types of cells that have varying functions within the body. Cells provide structure for the body, absorb the nutrients from the foods we eat and then convert those nutrients into energy. They also carry out specialised functions and are able to reproduce themselves.

Free radicals (the bad guys)

When cells use oxygen they naturally generate free radicals (by-products) which can damage important cellular components – such as the cell membrane – or macromolecules like DNA. But it’s not just internal processes that generate free radicals, external factors such as environmental pollutants, radiation, cigarette smoke, poor diet, certain drugs and pesticides and ozone, too. The damage resulting from healthy cells being attacked by free radicals can lead to mutation, impaired function, and even cell death. Then comes oxidative stress, which is the result of too many free radicals and too much cell damage. Studies over a few decades have found that oxidative stress can lead to a whole host of diseases and is associated with aging.

usana free radicals

Antioxidants (the good guys)

When free radicals wage war on our healthy cells, the bodies defence system of antioxidants kicks in to keep free radicals in check and minimise potential damage. Although there are several enzyme systems within the body that scavenge free radicals, the principle micronutrient (vitamin/mineral) antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and selenium. The body cannot manufacture these micronutrients, so they must be acquired by diet. In addition, there are many plant-derived nutrients (phytonutrients) that can act as powerful antioxidants in the human body.

Why do we need nutritional supplements?

Simply put, in order to be healthy, our cells need to be nourished. How do we stay healthy and nourish our cells? By eating a diet which includes a wide variety of foods from all the food groups –Breads and cereals, vegetables, fruit, dairy and meat or meat alternatives. And let’s be honest, most of us don’t eat the perfect diet – at least not all of the time. We get busy with work, family, school… the list goes on. Sometimes we skip meals and sometimes we grab the closest sugary or salty snack to satisfy our hunger and call it a day. And this is exactly where nutritional supplements can help and fill any nutritional gaps.

THE ANSWER? USANA CELLSENTIALS®

The CellSentials are USANA’s flagship nutritional supplement: a combination of USANA Vita-Antioxidant and Core Minerals products. Formulated to not only help prevent nutritional deficiency, the CellSentials provide the necessary vitamins and minerals to retain optimal health and energy levels that everyone needs every day. The CellSentials also contain carotenoids, bioflavonoids, and other phytochemicals and antioxidants to provide a full arsenal of compounds to help protect against daily exposure to free radicals.

THE SCIENCE OF INCELLIGENCE

USANA InCelligence is building on our past knowledge of nutritional science and taking it a step further. The nutrients in the InCelligence Complex supports your cells in the production of endogenous antioxidants – the type of antioxidants that are produced by your own cells, not from food or supplements and their effects are hundreds of times more powerful – to protect cells against free radicals.

usana incelligenceInCelligence sends messages that tap into your cells’ natural protective and renewal abilities. Signalling your cells to optimise these powerful responses—instead of waiting for outside stimuli—makes your cells more adaptable. It’s like strength training for your cells. This proactive approach helps build cellular resilience and optimise longevity of cellular function. That’s how InCelligence empowers your body to meet your unique health needs, unlocking your unparalleled ability to personalise vibrant health from within. InCelligence’s powerful nutrients complex also communicate with your cells to enhance their natural renewal response. This purification process removes the harmful by-products of cellular-energy creation, which is key to the health of your cells. The Science of InCelligence® is a dramatic step forward in nutritional science—pushing the frontiers of cellular nutrition and expanding the horizons of personalised health.

The USANA VISION – our TECHNOLOGY is evolving but our goals remain the same

usana dr wentzArticle from USANA Australia magazine 2017

Health begins at the cellular level

Every living cell in our body is a dynamic, fascinating world of its own, capable of incredible adaptability and resilience. In fact, the entire human body functions in ways that are miraculous to me, even after years of studying its foundational building blocks – the cells. It’s in these building blocks where health begins and ends. This is why I have always emphasised the importance of cellular nutrition. Keeping your cells healthy and communicating properly plays a critical role in the quality and quantity of healthy years in your life. When I developed the USANA® Essentials™ more than two decades ago, they were the result of my years of study and research on how nutrients could affect the function and longevity of the cell. And in the years since, I am proud that USANA has continued to study and grow as an innovator in the science of cellular health and nutritional supplementation. With USANA InCelligence®, we are taking a leap forward.

Recent advances in the field of nutritional science, molecular biology and genetics have shown that it is possible to leverage the natural intelligence of the body to be more active, not passive, in creating and sustaining optimal health. So USANA’s Research and Development team took this breakthrough understanding of gene expression, cell signalling and cellular renewal and used it to create InCelligence. This effort took years of cutting-edge research and has led to the creation of the formula for the new CellSentials®, incorporating InCelligence. And it doesn’t stop with the CellSentials. InCelligence will revolutionise many of our other products, keeping us on the cutting edge of nutritional supplementation for many years to come.

My vision remains unchanged. The USANA family can and will be the healthiest family on Earth. I invite you to join me in this next exciting phase of USANA’s evolution.

THE USANA CELLSENTIALS™ EXPERIENCE

Share Button

the usana cellsentialsSince their introduction in the 1990s by Dr. Myron Wentz, the USANA® Essentials™ daily antioxidant, vitamin, and mineral supplements have proven to be a benchmark in the industry and established USANA as a premier provider of innovative, science-based, nutritional products. The quality and efficacy of USANA nutritional supplements is unsurpassed thanks to Dr. Wentz’ years of study and research, the use of high-quality ingredients, and testing and retesting to find the right nutritional potency for maximum effect—always with an emphasis on cellular nutrition.

It isn’t a secret what Dr. Wentz was trying to accomplish— to create the healthiest family on Earth. With the Essentials, USANA could have said, “job well done” and kept with the status quo; but USANA has never been satisfied with riding on past successes. We are proud of them, yes. But we don’t settle. We are always innovating, improving, and taking things to the next level. Thanks to new advances in nutritional science, molecular biology, and genetics, the USANA Research & Development team employed their understanding of gene expression, cell signaling, and mitochondrial renewal to develop what has been coined USANA InCelligence Technology™. With this new technology, USANA’s scientists then built on the foundation of the Essentials to formulate the new CellSentials™ supplements. As the last step after extensive in-lab study, but before product release, USANA established a trial study with a select group of Associates. The parameters of the trial were pretty simple: we asked the group to take the new product and see how they felt. Naturally, the Associates who participated in this temporary offering were sworn to secrecy, but now that the technology was officially introduced at the 2016 International Convention, we can share some of the real-world feedback from the user trial. We reached out to Executive 1-Star Diamond Directors and 21-year USANA veterans Tom and Lorie Mulhern about their experience taking the CellSentials and the effect they anticipate the new formulation will have on their business.

usana incelligence testmonials

TRIAL EXPERIENCE “We were really excited about using the CellSentials,” Lorie says of being included in the trial. “We were also really excited about sharing them with others. It’s been awesome for our team to know that our cells are being renewed even deeper.” “We take a number of USANA products already, and we’re very healthy. That being said, I have felt a little more energy with CellSentials,” Tom says. “We run a pretty hard-paced schedule, so I have noticed that I’m able to keep up better than I was before. I’ve also been able to maintain mental clarity and focus.”* “I would say energy, too,” Lori says. “Energy, clarity, and focus— being able to sustain my thoughts a little longer. You know, being in the game a little bit longer so you don’t have to take breaks as often.”

BEST WAYS TO SHARE “Because people want to know what’s the latest and what’s more advanced, the words I’ve been using to catch people’s interest are ‘cell signaling’ and ‘scientifically advanced formulation,’” Tom says. “When you have something new, especially something that’s as advanced and scientifically based as CellSentials, people seem to be much more interested. We’ve found that people are much more engaged. They want to watch the videos. They’re asking more questions.”

“And they’re excited to hear that they can get nourishment, protection, and renewal all the way down to their cells,” Lorie says. “I think they are intrigued about that idea and get excited about it. The videos really pump them up to take a look, and it also gives a little piece of education to people. So I think that has been really effective as well.” GAINING NEW CUSTOMERS “Just in our team, we’re seeing a lot of new Preferred Customers,” Tom says. “What we’ve told our team is, ‘Just get people to use the product.’ A lot of people are wanting to try the product. Before, there were so many competitors, people were kind of numb to what we were saying. Now they’re not numb any more. They’re listening.”

Change Your Lifestyle and Your Life Attitude with USANA

Share Button

usana LucyChenArticle from USANA website.

Motivation can take many different shapes. For Lucy Chen, the desire to change came in the form of an emergency room.

For years, she had put her health on the back burner, focusing instead on taking care of her family and job. But it all came crashing down in 2009 when she collapsed at the office and woke up in the ER. Only then did she realize she’d taken care of everyone but herself.

“I lost my life,” Lucy said. “I couldn’t take care of myself, I couldn’t take care of my kids. So, I made up my mind to get my health back.”

Lucy had tried lots of diets before. Unfortunately, each failed, leaving her even heavier. But this time she wasn’t looking for a quick weight-loss solution. She spent hours researching and talking to experts. It wasn’t until a chance conversation with Jingbo Pan at a tax seminar that Lucy finally found her answer: USANA.

She started taking BiOmega™ and USANA® Essentials™ supplements to support healthy nutrition and soon felt a positive difference.* Then she started making changes in her diet. Instead of skipping meals and relying on late-night fast food, Lucy added in Nutrimeal™ meal-replacement shakes for breakfast and dinner.

Lifestyle changes came next. After work, Lucy would walk for 40–60 minutes. She also tried to cut out stress and get more rest. In just 10 months, she lost 85 pounds and felt great. Over the next six months, she continued with her new healthier lifestyle and lost another 13 pounds—for a grand total of 98.

Little by little she began to feel more confident, not only in the products, but in herself, as well. Lucy now feels like the person she always wanted to be.

“Every morning I can’t wait to wake up and see the different me in the mirror,” she said. “I radiate.”

Before her big scare, Lucy was overworked and exhausted. She missed dinner with her children every night and regretted not being there for them. Now, she’s a confident woman who feels comfortable in her own skin. But more importantly, she has the time and energy to focus on her son and daughter.

USANA LucyChen Children
Instead of watching the clock in her cubicle and feeling guilty, Lucy now picks her kids up from school each day. She takes them to all their activities, cheers them on, and teaches them about healthy options.

“That’s the most valuable asset we can give our kids,” she said. “Teach them how to have a healthy life now and in the future and how to bring a positive energy to life.”

Lucy doesn’t just talk about staying healthy—she lives it every day. Even six years after her amazing transformation, she still looks and feels fresh. Her secret? Continually building on her healthy lifestyle changes, like adding in yoga and ballet once a week, as well as the occasional jog.

Her eating habits have also changed for the better. “Every morning, I drink Nutrimeal, plus one scoop of USANA Fibergy® fiber blend and USANA® Probiotic. I eat a normal lunch and dinner,” she said.

In addition, she rotates different combinations of products. For example, she’ll take USANA CoQuinone® , HepaPlus™, and Digestive Enzyme for three months, then switch to USANA BiOmega and Gingko-PS™. But she always keeps a HealthPak™ as her daily foundation.

Along with her weekly exercise routine, Lucy has learned to focus on low-glycemic and high-fiber foods. And she always looks for new ways to add in more fruits and vegetables with her lunch and dinner. She’s also learned the art of balance.

“I enjoy ice cream with my kids,” she said. “I do go party often and enjoy all kinds of food, but my weight has never bounced back.”

What began as a terrifying hospital stay has turned into a completely new lifestyle and livelihood for Lucy and her family. “When I started USANA … I wasn’t even thinking about losing weight or turning into a different me,” she said. “At that time, I just wanted to save my life.”

Healthy kids are happy kids! USANA Australia article

Article from USANA Australia website.

We all want to give our kids the best start in life, we want them to be happy and to have good relationships and experiences during their school years. Unfortunately, unhealthy diets and a largely sedentary lifestyle are making more and more kids overweight or obese and this can directly impact their experiences at school.

Social effects of obesity
We all know by now (and have experienced!) that some kids can be downright cruel and if there is an obvious point of difference between your child and other children they are around, they can be an easy target for teasing or bullying.

A study in the American Academy of Pediatrics found that obese and overweight children were more likely to be the victims and committers of bullying behaviour compared to normal weight children. As a result, short and long term social and psychological development in these children were delayed.

Obesity can result in social and emotional problems for kids – who have already have enough on their plate just dealing with growing up. These problems can morph into mental health illnesses such as depression, anxiety, poor body image and even eating disorders.

usana healthy kids2

Health issues
The social and emotional affects are concerning, but even more concerning are the direct negative physical health effects of obesity. Although these affects aren’t always seen in childhood, it is important to take action before they become serious health issues in adulthood.

Possible health problems for obese children in the future:
•    Type 2 Diabetes
•    Eating disorders
•    Fatty liver disease
•    Respiratory disorders
•    Sleep apnoea
•    Dental problems

What can you do?

But it’s not all doom and gloom! The positive that you can take from all of this is that you can reverse obesity. You can take action now and build the foundation for a happier and healthier future for your children.

usana healthy kids3

Here are some ways to get your kids on a lifetime of healthy eating:

•  Go for a rainbow – encourage different coloured fruits and veggies. Try to encourage two fruits and five veggies daily.
•  Set a good example – you can’t expect them to eat their greens if you’re tucking into less than healthy eats. Eat together as a family and you’re likely to encourage better social skills.
•  Eat regularly – breakfast, lunch and dinner are essentials.      Punctuate main meals with healthy snacks and you’re likely to help keep your child’s energy levels and ability to focus high. Skipping meals is linked with unhealthy snacking, weight problems and problems with energy and learning.
•  Don’t ban the junk – what children don’t get may be what they crave. Allow some treats but make them treats and not part of the daily diet.
•  Watch the drinks – that contain sugar and acids which can erode the enamel on teeth. Encourage water or juices only with meals.
•  Don’t give up offering new tastes – kids are notoriously fussy. And if you try a food that’s rejected, try offering it again a few days or weeks later.
•  Get them involved – kids are more likely to try foods if they have taken part in preparing or cooking foods. It’s also a great way to teach valuable life skills right from the start and a love of fresh, healthy, delicious foods.
•  Go for gentle encouragement – trying to use force, rewards or punishments in a bid to encourage your children to eat vegetables of any other food won’t help. Instead, for gentle persuasion and active encouragement!
•  Limit screen time –TV, DVDs, computers, mobile phones, tablets and playing video games all mean less time being active.
•  Build activity into family life – go for walks or bike rides together as a family each day.
•  Encourage supplementation – with active lifestyles and growing bodies, children and adolescences need advanced levels of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to achieve and maintain optimal health. Try USANA’s specially formulated kids daily vitamin USANA UsanimalsTM and teenage daily vitamin USANA BodyRoxTM.

4 Reasons Vitamin C Is Important

Share Button

vitamin c foodsArticle from USANA Australia website.

Let’s talk about the reality behind vitamin C. Sure, plenty of scientific evidence touts the benefits vitamin C provides to support your immune system, but that’s not the only purpose this micronutrient serves. Your body uses vitamin C in so many ways.

Antioxidant Protection

When present in our bodies, antioxidants selflessly sacrifice themselves to protect our cells by willingly giving up their own electrons to subdue excess amounts of free radicals that have been found to cause oxidative damage.

Maintaining proper levels of vitamin C can help ensure you’re maintaining a solid army of antioxidant defense.

Building Blocks

Vitamin C is also essential for collagen synthesis.

Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the body and is crucial for building and strengthening muscles, teeth, bones, skin, and blood vessels. Without adequate vitamin C, the body can struggle to make adequate collagen. Under normal conditions, the recommended daily value of 75–90 mg per day meets the requirement for maintaining sufficient amounts of collagen.

Now, About that Immune System…

There’s a lot of conflicting evidence out there, but when it comes down to it, vitamin C is widely accepted as an important nutrient for maintaining healthy immune function. It does this by stimulating both the production and function of leukocytes—AKA: white blood cells.

Where Can You Get It?

Maybe I should’ve mentioned this before, but did you know our bodies are incapable of manufacturing vitamin C? This means we rely solely on our diets to satisfy our daily requirement.

Foods such as oranges, berries, papaya, kiwi, peppers, tomatoes, peas, and dark green leafy vegetables all contain high amounts of vitamin C that can be absorbed by our bodies.
