Seven supplements for exercisers and suggested USANA supplements

Article extracted from USANA Australia Magazine 2014

1. Vitamin D – If you’re deficient in vitamin D (which one in three Australians appear to be ) one of the many side effects could be a slowed down metabolism. Vitamin D helps the body absorb bone-building calcium and is needed throughout life. On-going research also suggests that vitamin D may also play an important role in boosting muscle strength as well as maintaining a healthy immune system and healthy immune system and healthy skin.

So, taking a vitamin D supplement daily may help.

USANA Supplements wise: Find vitamin D in HealthPak,  Essentials and Vitamin D.

2. Omega-3s – they are powerful anti-inflammatories that may help boost blood flow to the muscles which makes for faster recovery. USANA’s Dr John Cuomo views omega-3s as a secret weapon where toning up is concerned.

The Australian Heart Association recommends that we all aim for two serves of oily fish per week whilst choosing omega-3 rich foods and a good quality fish oil. Walnuts, flax seed, chia seeds, and algae-based products provide vegetarian sources of omega-3s.

USANA Supplements wise: Biomega (which contains good concentration of DHA and EPA) and is completely FREE of mercury and pesticide residues.

3. Vitamin C – Dr John Cuomo says: “Vitamin C is responsible for the health of the blood vessels, which supports muscles’ needs for oxygen and nutrients.” It’s also needed to make collagen which your body uses to make bones. Your body can only store small amounts of this water-soluble vitamin so take some everyday. Good food sources includes fruits especially citrus fruits and berries, and vegetables such as capsicum.

USANA Supplements wise:  Poly C, Proflavanol C100

4. Calcium – Most of your body’s calcium is stored in the bones and getting enough is vital for the health of your bones and teeth throughout life. When you relax and contract your muscles, calcium is involved in their contraction. Calcium helps your muscle fibres grow as you get leaner and and stronger.

Good food sources include low-fat dairy products, fortified soy products, nuts (especially almonds) and leafy green vegetables. Magnesium and vitamin D are both needed for your body to absorb calcium.

USANA Supplements wise:  Active Calcium Plus and Active Calcium Chewable. Both contain added magnesium and vitamin D.

Your body can absorb 500 to 600 mg of calcium at a time so divide your calcium supplements and take with meals.

5. Magnesium – If you are lifting weights, think about magnesium which is important for your muscles – including your heart muscle – to contract and relax. Some exercise experts also recommend this mineral for easing muscle cramps and soreness. Good food sources include nuts, whole grains and legumes.

USANA Supplements wise:  Active Calcium Plus and Active Calcium Chewable.

6. Procosamine – Weight bearing exercise can put a strain on your joints and ligaments. So if your joints are feeling the pressure, there is a lot you can do. For example, opt for healthy diet (getting to a healthy weight range is essential if you are overweight as it takes a massive amount of pressure off the joints, especially weight-bearing joins like the knees and hips).

The University of Sydney’s Professor David Hunter says, ” Eighty per cent of knee osteoarthritis can be prevented if we adequately address overweight and obesity in our community and we prevent join injuries from happening. And that will have a huge impact long-term of preventing this diseases.”

USANA Supplements wise: Try Prcosamine which contains glucosamine, a component of cartilage and the potent anti-inflammatory effects of Meriva curcumin.

7. B Vitamins – The B group of vitamins is needed for a range of functions from producing healthy blood and muscle, energy and protein metabolism and for breaking down fats and carbohydrates.

How much? Most people consume adequate of the B vitamins through their diets, as these vitamins are found in foods such as whole grains, eggs, lean meats, legumes, nuts, leafy greens. However, B12 is only found in animal sources, so vegetarians and vegans may want to consider taking a supplement or using fortified foods and drinks to obtain 2.4 micro-grams daily.

USANA Supplements wise: Try USANA Essentials or HealthPak.

USANA Products and Vitamins Review

usana family

Shared by a mother with 3 lovely daughters from Brisbane, Australia

“My eldest daughter used to have very bad eczema. I tried Chinese herbs, western medicine…. We took her to see 6 doctors, plus my sister (She is a pediatrician.) We found out that she is allergic to dust mites. I washed her linen in hot water….Tried so many different types of ways but could not treat her skin. Her skin was so bad that she could not have a shower without crying when her skin cracked. The water splashing on her skin caused so much pain on her skin. A doctor from Greenslope Hospital told me to feed her probiotic and fish oil. So I bought some from Chemist Warehouse and gave her for a few months but it did not work so I stopped. Then I followed a friend’s advice and started her on USANA vitamins in January 2012 (just before she was year 4). We saw that she has improvement in her skin within a month. Because of that improvement, our whole family is taking USANA. Eventually we found out that she does not complain of tummy ache any more. (She used to have tummy ache and my GP thought that she was attention seeking.) USANA vitamins not just helps her skin but also improved her immune system. She has no sick leave from school for the whole year in 2013! I guess the main difference is the quality of USANA is a lot better than similar vitamins I bought from the chemist. USANA has a good compensation plan for its member. And now my family is taking the products free of charge with the commissions from distributing the USANA products. I am forever grateful to Dr Wentz for not just helping my family but also my relatives and friends.” 

For any people who is new to USANA Products, I would like to give the following advises:

Please take your products with food. You may experience a “Healing Effect” this is where the previous injury sites might be more sore, might get headaches, be sleepy, your skin might have a few extra acne spots. Everyone will have a different reaction of some sort. Make sure you drink 2 litre of water to help flush toxins out so your body’s cells can start repairing & healing your body. Make sure you have a healthy diet with lots of vegetables & fruit. Regular exercise (2 hours per week) is important as well. If you are taking Essentials, your urine may be a bit more yellow in colour. Do not drink tea/coffee when taking the supplements as it will affect the absorption.

Some people may get very tired. I have seen people have headache or diarrhea. This is the detoxification reaction or healing affect. These symptoms will usually pass within a few weeks. Make sure you drink at least 2 litre of water a day. Occasionally there is more severe reaction. This may indicate that the amounts of nutrients are just too much too fast. In that case, you can stop the supplement for a few days until the reaction subsides. Then resume the supplements in a lower dose (about 1/3 of the recommended dose) and slowly build it up. Add one supplement at a time, e.g. you start 1 capsule biomega-3 for 3 days, and then add to 2 capsules per day on day4. Day 8, you add another supplement on top of that and so on. (According to Dr John Cuomo, a scientist of USANA, we need to slowly build up because the body needs to adjust to them.) You may need to take the supplements for a minimum of 3-6 months to really see the results. That’s how long it takes for body cells to turn over and for vitamin storage levels to become normal. If you or your family has a history of hyperthyroidism or goiter, you can only take 2 pairs of Essentials per day, not 4 pairs suggested on the bottles.

USANA vitamins are high quality nutritionals. A lot of their products are listed in MIMS so you can trust its quality. You just need to know how to make use of it the right way to improve your condition.
