Health Benefits of Vitamins Supplements from USANA

Updated on April 29, 2009

For a healthy body and mind, a person should consume a healthy and balanced diet, which provides essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the right amounts. Getting all essential nutrients from diet today is bit difficult. The nutrient contents of fruits, vegetables, and grains have reduced because of the rampant use of chemicals in the farming. Since plants derive nutrients from the soil, the crops grown these days are low in nutrient content as our soil itself is devoid of many nutrients. Moreover, because of our fast paced and stressful lives, most of us forget to pay due attention to our nutrition and opt for junk and unhealthy food. Pollution also lays stress on our body. This too results in the deficiency of vitamins and minerals. The deficiency of any nutrient has ill effects on the proper functioning of the body, resulting in various diseases.

USANA is a leading name in the field of nutritional products such as USANA vitamins. They manufacture a wide range of supplements in the form of tablets, health drinks, and health food. USANA essentials are available for all age groups i.e. children, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens. These supplements contain the minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants in the right amount as required by the body. Our body needs 13 essential vitamins for proper functioning. Since our body cannot manufacture all of them, it is essential that we get them from our diet or through supplements. Minerals are important as they help in the assimilation of vitamins and also act as a catalyst in the enzyme reactions. The human body requires 16 essential minerals. Antioxidants play an important role in keeping us healthy. They destroy the free radicals, which are the by-products of the chemical processes that take place inside our body. These free radicals are very reactive and can cause damage to the cells of the body. They are primarily responsible for aging and diseases like cancer. Proper dosage of antioxidants prevents formation of free radicals and hence keeps us healthy and young.

USANA has a range of health foods that are high in fiber, low in fats and glycemic index, and packed with vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. These foods provide the complex carbohydrates and soluble and insoluble fibers to the body. Fiber keeps our body free from toxins and reduces the cholesterol levels. Complex carbohydrates are healthy as they release energy slowly and do not cause any sudden rise in the blood sugar. These nutrient-rich foods are tasty to eat. Another range of USANA supplements is Optimizers. These are meant for the people with specific health problems. Depending upon the health problem, people can choose the appropriate supplement like the supplement to strengthen the digestive system, to improve memory, to strengthen bones, to improve vision etc.

In short, USANA’s nutritional supplements have the right proportion of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Nutritional products for people of all age groups and for different health problems are available today.
