Usana Vitamins and How it Improved My Health

Updated on August 15, 2009

How I started taking Usana Vitamins

It's always interesting to me how I actually became a fan of Usana vitamins. I first learned about Usana back in 2001 when I started looking into the Network Marketing industry. During my research, Usana was consistently named as the best network marketing company not only because of its great compensation plan but also because of its high quality vitamins. For whatever reason, though, I decided not to pursue Usana's opportunity or products during that time.

My Friend's Amazing Experience with Usana

In 2007, though, Usana returned back into my life. I was practicing martial arts with a friend of mine who was feeling unusually lethargic at the time. I knew that something was wrong with him because he was really into staying healthy and always seemed energetic. Two months passed before I spoke with him again but now he more energetic than I had ever seen him before. He was so excited because he had discovered something that made him the healthiest he had ever been in his life. This was really impressive to me because my friend was someone who had tried everything and someone who was very knowledgeable about vitamins.

I learned that when we were practicing martial arts two months earlier, his health was starting to deteriorate. His kidney function had gotten so low that it had become a major concern. But then his friend, who was a top stock analyst and who studied the vitamins industry for 3 years convinced him to start taking vitamins from Usana. In two months, my friend had a dramatic turnaround in his health and his kidney function was suddenly at above normal conditions. Furthermore, his other organ functions were not only functioning very well but his body was so well balanced that it amazed health practitioners. So naturally after hearing my friend's amazing experience with Usana's nutritonal supplements, I had to try them to see if I felt any health benefits.

My initial experience with Usana vitamins

I have never been one to take many vitamins so it took me awhile to get used to taking a number of pills in the morning and night for me to feel comfortable with the process. At first it took awhile for me to get through taking four pills of the Usana Essentials. I would swallow one pill down, walk around the room and then convince myself to take another one. I just wasn't used to taking so many vitamins. Still using my friend's experience as a motivator for me to continue this adjustment process, I surprised myself and stuck with the routine.

Now the Usana Essentials product is the flagship product for Usana Health Sciences. This is pretty much everything a body needs nutritionally to function well. It is the vitamin product that every consumer should start off with first because it is the foundation for allowing your body to become nutritionally sound. There's so much to write about the amazing Usana Essentials product that it really deserves its own hub instead of a measly paragraph. For now, I will use this hub to speak about my experiences with Usana supplements.

Generally it takes people four to six weeks, to feel the 'Usana Difference'. For me personally, it took around six weeks for my body to adjust to the vitamins and feel the difference. My experience was not as dramatic as my friend's experience. I definitely felt more energetic throughout the day though and noticed that I was sleeping better and waking up more refreshed. I also realized that I no longer needed coffee to wake up in the morning and in fact stopped drinking coffee all together.

I continued with the routine though and soon I was able to swallow four pills at one time that it would take me a few seconds to finish taking them. I continued to notice that my health was improving. When I went to the gym, I would feel less sore the next day and my muscles recovered quicker. I also noticed that I had more stamina when did a cardio workout.

Usana's great vitamins help me get rid of my sweet tooth

What was probably the most amazing difference for me after taking the vitamins was that I completely lost my sugar cravings. Now as a little background, I have an insane sweet tooth. It had gotten so bad, that my body would crave sugar at 2pm and 9pm every day and I would have to make a run to the store to satisfy my body's demands. Now though, they had completely disappeared and I didn't even realize it until my friend mentioned that his sugar cravings had disappeared too.

During the past holiday season, the power of Usana amazed me even more. I got lazy during this season and stopped taking the vitamins. Before long, I was suddenly eating chocolate without realizing it and once again I would find myself running to the store and buying chocolate. When the holiday season ended though, I renewed my commitment to taking Usana's vitamins and within a week my sugar cravings dropped.

It was this last experience that really convinced me that the vitamins from Usana really had an effect on my health. After some research into why I lost my cravings when I took Usana nutritional supplements, I realized that my body was being nutritionally satisfied with the supplements that it no longer demanded anything else.

My friend and I are not the only ones who have had pretty amazing experiences with Usana's products. There are thousands out there who have had great experiences with Usana. I became such a believer in Usana vitamins that I even joined up as a distributor and have gotten a number of friends on the products.

If you've gotten this far in the article, I highly encourage you to take a chance and try some vitamins from Usana. Feel free to contact me by clicking on this Usana vitamins link or by reaching out to a number of the other Usana Distributors out there. My goal for writing this article was to educate simply on how Usana's nutrional suppplements really improved my health.

Thank you for reading and I hope to write more hubs on the specific details of the different kinds of Usana vitaimins that I take in the future.
