Why Do You Need Vitamins and Supplements?
One of the eight pillars of overall health is nutrition. There’s no better way to give your body the nutrition it craves than by eating a balanced diet of healthy, whole foods. However, most people struggle to eat right every day. So, they simply don’t get the complete nutrition they need.
If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. And you may worry that, if you don’t change, you’re not reaching your potential because you don’t feel your best every day. Or beyond day-to-day concerns, you could wonder if you’re on the path to poor health. Fortunately, you can choose a different path.
Making gradual shifts to your lifestyle and curbing your cravings can help you change your eating habits. And as you strive to eat a more balanced diet, USANA vitamins and nutritional supplements can help fill the gaps to support your overall wellness.
You will see and feel the most benefit if you eat well and also take your USANA Nutritionals. Because, even if your diet is on track, you may still fall short when it comes to getting levels of some nutrients that can truly promote optimal health.*
The growing awareness about the importance of micronutrients for maintaining wellness is why 75 percent of adults take dietary supplements, as reported by the Council for Responsible Nutrition. And nutritional experts agree. A 2019 survey found 76 percent of dieticians recommend a mix of food and supplements to their clients.
USANA vitamins and supplements are an insurance plan that makes it simple to get the vital nutrients you need to support excellent health—day-in and day-out.*

Excellent Quality You Can Trust—Guaranteed
You can have the greatest product formulas in the world, but poor manufacturing can destroy their effectiveness. That’s why USANA is one of only a few companies to make products in its own state-of-the-art facility.
Each supplement is rigorously tested multiple times. And each step of the manufacturing process is modeled after the uncompromising quality standards used by the pharmaceutical industry (21 CFR, part 211). This is why USANA sets the standard for excellence in dietary supplements.
And USANA stands behind that excellence.
When you trust your health to USANA, you know exactly what you’re getting. This is because your USANA Nutritionals come with a potency guarantee. It promises that the USANA vitamin or supplement you’ve chosen has been held to a higher quality standard. So, what you see on the label is what you’ll get in the product.
To receive the Potency Guarantee seal—featuring the signature of USANA Founder Dr. Myron Wentz—each supplement is tested for the following:
- Purity—free from impurities or contamination
- Identity—ingredients in the product are verifiably the ingredients on the label
- Composition—contains exactly what it is supposed to, in exactly the right amounts
- Strength—offers the proper concentration of ingredients
- Quality—meets all specified expectations
USANA voluntarily submits its manufacturing facilities and supplements for verification by independent labs, such as USP, NSF®, and ConsumerLab.com®. The company is also an executive member of the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA), which is a group of companies committed to providing consumers with natural health products of superior quality, benefit, and reliability.
Frequently Asked Questions About USANA Vitamins and Supplements
Are supplements natural or synthetic?
The raw ingredients that go into USANA products come from a variety of sources. Some are derived from plants (our vitamin E, for example, is derived from soy) while others are produced synthetically. Some are derived from natural sources but have been further modified by synthetic steps. Others are derived from fermentation processes.
Natural versus synthetic is just one of the criteria USANA uses to select the raw ingredients that go into its products. Other factors taken into account are potency, purity, safety, stability, and reliability of supply.
All factors being equal, we will select naturally derived materials over synthetically derived ones. But often times, all factors are not equal. We use vitamin and mineral compounds in the chemical form—be it “natural” or “synthetic”—proven to be effectively absorbed and utilized by the body, and that are safe, pure, and free of any contaminants.
There is a common misconception that “natural” vitamins and minerals are extracted from plants in their pure form, making them superior to “synthetic” vitamins and minerals made in a laboratory. This is often a misleading distinction.
First, it is not possible to extract pure vitamins from plants without considerable and significant processing that may include harsh chemical-extraction solvents. Next, the biological activity of a compound has nothing to do with its source and is more determined by its chemical structure. In other words, it typically makes little difference whether the chemical originates from a leafy plant or is synthesized—it is the same compound, regardless.
Some vitamin and antioxidant compounds can be efficiently synthesized in laboratories to produce products that are identical in chemical form to those found in nature. They are extremely pure and equally safe (and often much less expensive than their “natural” counterparts). In addition, some synthetic vitamins are preferentially absorbed over compounds provided by food sources.
One good example is folic acid, which is more easily absorbed than folate from food sources. Folates in food are typically large, protein-bound molecules and must be hydrolyzed or deconjugated before absorption and transport into the cell.
What is the caloric content of the supplements?
USANA nutritional supplements are not a significant source of calories. For example, an entire daily dose of the CellSentials (eight tablets) provides less than one calorie. Most of the supplements provide less than one calorie per daily dose.
Exceptions to this rule include:
- BiOmega: 10 calories per capsule, 20 calories per daily dose
- BiOmega Jr.: 20 calories per packet
- Active Calcium Chewable: 4 calories per tablet, 16 calories per daily dose
- HealthPak: less than 2 calories per daily dose
- Usanimals: less than 4 calories per tablet
It takes approximately 3,500 unused calories to store one pound of fat.
Are supplements FDA approved?
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) does not conduct pre-market authorization of dietary supplements. And no dietary supplements in the United States are “FDA approved.”
The Food and Drug Administration regulates dietary supplements under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Under DSHEA, dietary supplements are in a special category listed under the general umbrella of “foods.”
The FDA requires that dietary supplement manufacturers follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for dietary supplements (21 CFR, part 111). USANA meets and exceeds these standards.
Otherwise, the FDA is primarily responsible for taking action against any unsafe dietary supplement product after it has entered the market. The FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) is responsible for the oversight of dietary supplements after they reach the market. Their mandate is to monitor the marketplace for products that may be considered unsafe or make false or misleading claims.
Can vitamin supplements cause dependency and will I go through withdrawals if I stop taking them?
Vitamins are molecular compounds necessary for normal health and growth in higher forms of animal life, including humans. People must obtain essential vitamins from food or from supplements because the human body cannot produce these compounds on its own. Lack of a particular vitamin in the diet may lead to a deficiency disease. (This is how vitamins were first discovered.)
Aside from the possibility of inadequate nutrient intake from the diet, no side-effects are associated with discontinuation of the USANA supplements.
