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.

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.

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.

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.”

USANA InCelligence® Complex: 8 Ingredients

Share Button

usana incelligenceArticle from USANA Australia website.

USANA CellSentials® is one of the most potent cell-empowering supplements on the market and the reason behind this spectacular scientific achievement lies within the InCelligence Complex.

The USANA InCelligence® Complex is a unique blend of ingredients that can broadly support cellular communication pathways to support optimal cellular resilience and longevity, which supports your body’s ability to meet your individual health needs. While there are many health-optimizing pathways that the InCelligence Complex supports, there are two key processes it was designed to promote:

Endogenous antioxidant protection: Our bodies are equipped with a naturally powerful defense system that can protect against damaging oxidative stress: antioxidants that are produced within our cells, such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD). The InCelligence Complex contains nutrients that proactively support the production of these endogenous antioxidants in addition to providing their own antioxidant activity. When combined with the additional antioxidants in the formula, including coenzyme Q10, beta carotene, and vitamins C, and E, Vita-Antioxidant with the InCelligence Complex provides significantly higher levels of protection.

Mitochondrial renewal through mitophagy: When mitochondria within a cell produce cellular energy (ATP), high amounts of free radicals may also be generated. While the natural antioxidants in the cell will neutralize many of the free radicals, some mitochondria will be damaged over time. Damaged mitochondria within the cell can cause it to work inefficiently. They will produce less ATP and more damaging free radicals. To maintain cellular efficiency, the cell initiates a natural response called mitophagy to degrade, remove, or recycle damaged mitochondria. However, age or other lifestyle factors may slow this process.

There are 8 powerful core ingredients in CellSentials:

1. Resveratrol
Resveratrol is a unique antioxidant found largely in the skins of red grapes and is often referred to as the “fountain of youth” due to the fact that it is so effective in helping the proper functioning of our bodies. Wide-reaching benefits from taking resveratrol include protecting your cells from free radical damage, helping to maintain homeostasis in the body, and helping to support vibrant health.

2. Quercetin
Quercetin is a natural flavonoid antioxidant found in plants which detoxifies our bodies and fights free radicals. Due to its ability to manage oxidative stress, it helps to support vibrant health and efficient functioning.

3. Hesperidin
Hesperidin is a naturally occurring bioflavonoid found in citrus fruit which acts as a potent antioxidant that supports proper immune system functioning and naturally compliments the action of vitamin C in the body.

4. Rutin
Rutin is a useful bioflavonoid found mainly in citrus fruit which acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals in the body. Rutin also helps the body utilise vitamin C and maintain collagen, the main building blocks of connective tissue.

5. Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a vitamin-like antioxidant typically found in meat that is both fat and water soluble. It offers protection from oxidation both inside and outside the cell. Not only does it do this, it also enhance the body’s natural antioxidant system as it increase levels of glutathione, a natural antioxidant crucial in metabolic processes. The fact that Alpha Lipoic Acid is easily absorbed in the gut and transported across cell membranes means it is able to work throughout the body, including the brain and nervous system.

6. Green Tea Extract
Green Tea Extract is sourced from green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) and contains antioxidants called Epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG). These antioxidants fight free radicals and oxidation, helping to maintain a healthy immune system and support vibrant health. Green Tea Extract has been used as an enhancer of longevity for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicines.

7. Meriva® Bioavailable Curcumin
Meriva Bioavailable Curcumin is a unique patented curcumin product which acts as a potent antioxidant. It also enhances the body’s natural antioxidant system, thereby aiding in hepatic detoxification. Meriva offers numerous health benefits, including supporting joint health, and helping to maintain the body’s normal inflammatory response. Meriva®† Bioavailable Curcumin is nearly 30 times more bioavailable than traditional curcumin extracts/preparations and its sustained release formula allows for an optimal curcumin blood level over time.

8. Olivol®
Olivol is USANA’s patented extract that contains antioxidant polyphenols derived exclusively from olives. The polyphenolic antioxidants found in olives are not present in other common dietary sources. They are structurally distinct from vitamins, carotenoids, bioflavonoids, proanthocyanidins, and other antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables. These antioxidants may be one of the components of the Mediterranean diet associated with health and longevity.

The InCelligence® Effect
Together, these 8 powerful core ingredients communicate with cells, unlocking their natural protective and renewal processes. This ability to influence a broad network of physiological pathways can help build cellular resilience, empowering your body to meet your unique health needs.
