To maintain health, we need a diversity of vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, and other nutrients. Although we receive many of these nutrients from our diets, its impractical and virtually impossible to obtain an optimal dose through diet alone.
USANA understands the importance of providing the right ingredients - in the correct amounts, in the right balance, and in the correct forms - for all age groups. For this reason, USANA has created EssentialsTM 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.
