Down the aisles of supermarkets and in the shopping cart of
online marketing, you will find a myriad of multivitamin products – from the
inexpensive brands that provide vitamins and minerals at bare minimum levels to
those that offer advanced nutrition. Sometimes knowing what you are getting can
be very confusing, since supplements are not created equal. A simple rule to
keep in mind, when choosing a supplement, is that good health should be guarded
with utmost security and attention!

1. A Balanced Comprehensive Formula: Containing full array of vital nutrients
including 13 vitamins, nine minerals, 13 phytonutrients, and five supporting
2. Broad Spectrum Antioxidant Protection: With more than 20
antioxidants including natural phytonutrients from pure plant extracts.
3. Higher Bioavailability:
Nutrient bioavailability indicates the degree and rate at which the
nutrients are absorbed by the body and delivered to the bloodstream. In a
clinical study, serum levels of vitamins C, B2 and B6 in healthy adults were
measured after five diverse dietary supplements were taken. USANA Essentials delivered
more nutrients to the blood stream than all the other products tested.1
4. Higher Plasma Antioxidant Reserve (PAR): PAR is a method
used to measure the overall resistance of plasma to oxidative stress in the human
body. Seven hours after supplementation, USANA Essentials outperformed all
other products tested by 1.5-3.0 times, delivering the highest PAR level.1
5. Optimal Nutrient Forms: When compared to six popular
multivitamin brands, USANA Essentials MultiMineral provides most minerals in
chelated forms. Chelated minerals are minerals attached to organic acid or
amino acids and so have better bioavailability.
6. Unique Nutrient Complex: USANA Essentials provides vitamin C from a
unique combination of mineral ascorbates, which are less acidic, less
irritating to the stomach and retained longer in the bloodstream.2 USANA Essentials
provides Olivol™† – an exclusive patented olive fruit extract that offers enhanced
7. Advanced Nutrition: Each Recommended Daily Dosage (RDD)
of USANA Essentials provides higher total nutrient level and higher levels of
many essential vitamins and minerals when compared with the RDDs of the other
six multivitamin brands.
8. High Potency: It would require consuming multitudes of
RDDs from the other six multivitamin brands in order to obtain the same levels
of many vitamins and minerals provided in each RDD of USANA Essentials. For
example, it would require five times the RDD from Brand A, or nine times the
RDD from Brand B, to obtain the same level of vitamin C contained in a daily
dosage of Essentials.
9. Advanced Nutrition at Great Value
How much are you really paying? The chart below illustrates
the four-week cost for USANA Essentials, as well as for the other six
multivitamin brands if the same daily total nutrient level were to be provided
in each product. USANA Essentials not only offers nutrients in optimal and absorbable
forms, but also provides advanced nutrition at great value.
