Lemme guess, you're a distributor, right?
Anyone that tried USANA product naturally become a distributor, because their products are reliable and beneficial to health. I've been taking their supplement for 2 yrs now, I haven't become a distributor yet just because I don't promote what I take.

After visiting my friend and relatives, almost everyone take supplement and most of them take bad supplements lie centrum, herbal life, one woman, back yard supplements, I don't see their improvement on health. My mom that passed away from cancer she took CENTRUM for several yrs. It was too late to reverse with USANA products.

But, I have witness several early diagnosed cancer patients that took USANA products improving their health and able to survive from chemo therapies.

One thing is true that any supplement that we start taking we can't not stop.. our body will start keeping up with supplement unless we have a powerful healthful diet following with batches of exercises.

I started taking Usana vitamins & minerals last month, I think clearer and have way more energy through the day now. I never buy into marketing or "experts" opinions but let a product speak for itself. This stuff blew me away with the change, felt like a five year old bouncing off the walls. It works for me so I don't care if its placebo or actually doing good things for my body. I only take half the recommended amount now because I had trouble sleeping when I took them before bed which essentially halved their price for me.

I've tried this stuff it is like poison....I. had a very bad reaction to this stuff..I would recommend it to anyone...please keep it away from pets to as it killed my little puppy "Brownie" RIP Brownie
those marketing genius's that promote this crap should be ostricized by society and put in a cage...something like "Thunderome" only it would be electified so they would constantly be getting schocked several times a minute and that still wouldn't be enough retribution for them killing my puppy.

I'm coming after you ...I know who you are...poison peddlers

You need to be removed from the streets and for that matter...society in general...

Take that crap and shove it where the sun don't shine...yeah

And please, please take the reference to the U.S. out of the name...you're giving the country a bad name...

Why would anyone even want to by multi vitamins products manufactured in workshops and labs?

There is always a natural way to go about things!

Selling vitamins and other types of pills is just a business, were these big companies take the piss out of its customers!

Go Natural its FREE and if not it's alot CHEAPER!!

It's typical that negative people bash a company based on the fact it's a network marketing business. It's not MLM either, if you really understood how newer direct sales companies work.Usana is nothing like Amway, Usana has a better comp plan that pays even more now with the new plan. Usana has no levels and is a binary and you CAN make money not enrolling distributors but by selling products, because I do it. I can also guarantee the people saying they are over priced have never tried the products or even know anyone who has. Next time you go to buy vitamins look at the back and see where they are made, and what the ingredients are. Most of the vitamins are not manufactured in the US but only distributed by US companiesmanny pacquiao. If you want crappy vitamins buy Centrum or GNC brands. You get what you pay for. Those leaving nasty comments also don't know that Usana gives you 30 days to try out the products and will refund your money. Why? Because they stand behind their products, go to GNC or Vitamin Shoppe and see if they will do the same.
Why do Olympians use the products, San Antonio Spurs, Manny Pacquiao and countless athletes trust Usana? Quality. People spend more maintaining their cars then their own bodies. Why would you put garbage in your body? How can you bash a product you've never tried because your cheap? The prices are comparable to GNC, Usana Essentials are $46 and higher quality then anything else on the market. I've had countless customers see dramatic improvements in their health by taking the products and myself included. If Usana was a scam why are they a publicly traded company that does business in over 18 countries and counting and has been in business since 1992? Bottom line is that people are ignorant and close minded to believe that people actually make money outside of a JOB. When you leave negative comments it's only reflecting what you subconsciously think of yourself!

And the Dr. Who said they ship it to a distributors house then to the customer is WRONG! The products drop ship DIRECTLY to the customer. Do your research before leaving comments. I've never kept product on hand, Usana does everything. Call their customer service to see how top notch they are. Before you bash something do your due dilegence in research vs what you've heard. Because your missing out on a great products.

I'll have to say that I love the USANA products. I had asthma, but after changing the way I eat, exercise more frequently, AND taking USANA supplements, I no longer have any asthma issues. I've discontinued my inhaler, and all my other medications. I've put myself in several situations where I knew that it will trigger my asthma, nothing happened! If you have any healthy issues, don't you think you should owe to yourself to give it a try? This is your life and you make your own choices. Thank you, USANA, for my healthy lungs and not having to worry about any side effects that medications can do to our bodies.

Say what you want about Usana using selective marketing tools..bottom line, I don't care if prez Obama endorses it! I've been taking the health pack for a year & it has totally turned my body around..for me to wake up everyday after the 2nd month til now & not even pick up a cold or flu! I like how my immune system is solid & my body recovers everyday for work in a factory! Every blue collar working man's new weapon for health! I'm a beast these days! TY Usana!

I totally agree with Kevin. I have read the list of ingredients in their vitamins and there is nothing extraordinatry listed. They claim their ingredients are "live" but it doesn't specfify on the bottle to refrigerate the vitamins. Their protein shake powder is 100% soy protein and doesn't even state that it's non-GMO which means that it probably is GMO. The second ingredient of their protein powder is sucralose! You have to use 3 scoops of powder per serving. The package costs $35.00 & only gives you 9 servings per package which equals a whopping $4.00 per shake. What a rip off. They claim their ingredients are natural but in fact most of the ingredients are glycols, polysorbate and lots of salt. Usana products cost more money not because of quality but because 100 people down the chain are profiting along the way from 1 purchase and Wentz the founder is enjoying his profits living in Switzerland skimming off top!
Usana doesn't use sucralose. If they did in the past don't know. I just started buying their products because a friend recommended them (She was told about them by her family doctor)Are they worth the extra money? Absolutely in my book. I have Lupus and Fibromialgia. I couldn't get out of bed everyday much less work a fulltime job. I now am able to get out of bed everyday. I exercise and work a part time job but I believe with a bit more exercise and long term use from a high quality vitamin like USANA and I will be back in shape in a few more months. Not sure why so many are bashing a good company with good products. If you don't want to pay for them then go buy One A Day or other products that have been around since I was a little girl (54 yrs ago). They obviously haven't helped any one in all these years. People are still getting sick with degerative diseases. All I KNOW is that they have helped me. My doctors are excited that i am doing so well so quickly. Whether you want to buy them or not is up to you but I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to everyone I meet.

He was a real person who healed himself with his products....he has written a book on his life...very inspirational. I HIGHLY recommend them.Thank you

Sounds like a scam to me. Why not ask your medical practitioner who has been to medical school, attends board conferences and is most likely up to date on current trends than people hawking gimmicks on these board?
Sadly a lot of doctors don't spend a lot of time during their school days to study medicine and vitamins. Majority of them prescribes antibiotics when most of the time antibiotics don't even work because your body is slowly getting immune to it. It's always better to do your own research rather than depending on doctors.

What did you try that gave you a bad reaction? Also what did your dog eat? USANA never said fed this to pets. I mean I've heard of people doing it but their skin care of for humans but I've used the shampoo on my dogs. It helped with their fleas. I don't give my dogs my vitamins because I don't know what they're allergic to. I don't give my dogs the shakes, bars or energy drinks because the bars have CHOCOLATE in them which yes is DEADLY to dogs. There's chocolate shakes. Also the energy drinks is not meant for pregnant women, women breast feeding, children and I would also assume not for pets.

USANA means "true health" in Greek. "USA" in USANA doesn't stand for unities states of America.

Please cite just one example of a dog dying from eating chocolate that you know of. That is just another urban myth. Chocolate is NOT DEADLY to dogs. You should work for NBC and earn a paycheck for spreading hyped up myths as truth. It's amazing how many ignorant people like you that are out there.

I want to know where on this label does it say this is ORGANIC?? because it says...this product contains SOY. SOY on this planet right now is 98 percent GMO. so your gonna tell me that they specially found this special farmer that only has organic SOY?? I highly doubt it.

Please get your facts straight about Usana and vitamins in general before you comment. A vitamin IS NOT a vitamin..like food the quality can be poor. Usana uses only the highest grade vitamin AND minerals. And the company ships directly to the customer NOT to the distributor. Please check out this http://www.comparativeguide.com/
this comparative guide lists Usana as One of the TOP multivitamin/mineral complex available. I have been taking Usana for 8 years and feel better now than I did 15 years ago! www.macpherson.usana.com

Just took a look at the comparative guide.

"(Claim) Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements is an independent nutritional guide and has ranked USANA's Essentials #1 in the world since 1999.
(A) Every single edition of the Comparative Guide since 1999 was researched, edited and laid out by a USANA distributor named Gregg Gies, distributor ID#285320. Gregg was also co-owner of Nutrisearch, the organization responsible for the Comparative Guides. The author of the book Lyle Macwilliam was on USANA's medical advisory board from 2003 to 2006. The book is nothing more than a bias recruiting tool for USANA distributors."
