An adequate prescription of nutritional supplements can be used both as part of a regular diet aimed at enhancing health, vitality or longevity, and as a means to improve repair and recovery from injury or illness by providing a broad supply of the raw materials the body needs to perform optimally.

We are proud to be a part of Prosperity, the team founded and led by Dr. Christiane Northrup, one of the leading voices in women’s health (and a frequent Oprah guest). Dr. Northrup was given many opportunities to start her own supplement line, but instead opted to prescribe USANA products because of their unmatched quality and efficacy.
What are USANA Essentials?
To maintain health, we need a diversity of vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids and other nutrients. Although we receive many of these nutrients from our diets, it’s impractical and virtually impossible to obtain an optimal dose through diet alone. For this reason, USANA has created Essentials to provide the most well-rounded supplementation possible–a must for everyone interested in true health.
The Right Ingredients
The “essential” vitamins and minerals, as defined by U.S. government and nutrition authorities, include the 13 organic compounds and 19 inorganic elements the body needs for proper cell function. Our bodies cannot manufacture these essential ingredients; so we must obtain them from our diets.
USANA has expanded the meaning of “essential” to include several nutrients that recent research has shown help to maintain optimal health. The USANA Essentials also contain a combination of antioxidant compounds to counteract free-radical damage in the cells.
The Correct Amounts
The U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) lists essential vitamins and minerals in amounts necessary to ensure a continuation of life and to address nutritional deficits that may cause acute deficiency diseases. The USANA Essentials are formulated to do more than defend against deficiency diseases; they are designed to promote optimal health. The Essentials contain greater amounts of almost all the necessary vitamins and minerals than are prescribed by the RDA.
