Kristen and I just got back from the 2014 USANA convention and it was absolutely incredible! The energy, the people, but most importantly the speakers were truly amazing. The knowledge that we gained from listening to some of the top educators in the world cannot be underestimated.
Out of all the speakers we heard, one that really stood out for us was Dr. Myron Wentz. Dr. Wentz is the founder of USANA. He has won the Albert Einstein award for being a world expert in cellular nutrition. He founded USANA on the foundation that people are living too short and dying too long.
Stresses are not only "growing" in our environment, we are putting ourselves under more and more stress every day. Working longer hours, worrying about finances, unhealthy relationships, and of course poor lifestyle choices are all an increased stress in our lives.
Long story short...stress leads to oxidation in our cells. Oxidation in turn leads to an increased risk of developing a degenerative disease. The importance of including optimal amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals into your diet could never be greater.
Studies have shown that every single developed disease can be traced back to a nutritional deficiency. Everyone should strive to get their micro-nutrients from food. Eating organic fruits and vegetables is the best way to get high quality vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The problem is that food is not what it used to be.
Modern day production practices are inhibiting foods to have high levels of micro-nutrients. Even organic foods are shown to have much lower levels of vital nutrients. The process of harvesting unripe produce so it can "ripen" during transportation and have a longer shelf life causes the nutrients in the produce to lose it's potency.
Soils are depleted of minerals. We are depleting soils at a rate far beyond what they can generate at. This causes us to throw billions of pounds of synthetic fertilizers onto our soils. These fertilizers are not only full of chemicals but they generally only contain potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus. A small percentage of the necessary minerals needed for a healthy thriving life.
Taking a nutritional supplement is needed if you want to achieve optimal health. Having just the recommended daily allowances (RDA) of your micronutrients will unfortunately lead to nutritional deficences due to the world that we live in.
USANA manufactures the number one rated nutritional supplements in the world. That is what attracted us to the company. Their supplements are pharmaceutical grade, non-GMO, follow the good manufacturing practices, and have the highest potency and purity.
There are over 700 elite athletes and olympians that use USANA supplements. USANA guarantees the purity of their products. You would be shocked by the amount of chemical, fillers, and even banned substances that are in most supplements. It is unfortunately a very poorly regulated industry. In fact, USANA has a $1,000,000 guarantee to olympic athletes. If they were to test positive for a banned substance while using USANA they would write them a cheque for $1,000,000. It hasn't happened ever!
Learning more about the importance of supplementation to support a healthy lifestyle has driven us to want to share this with the world even more! Absolutely everyone should be taking nutritional supplements. If you are spending money on supplements, taking the best might want to be something to consider. After all it is your health and your life.
We are not reiterating all of this information to just add another dollar to our bank account. We truly want to help everyone Live their Best Life. Everyone has the right to not just surviving but thriving!
Again as Dr. Wentz said, "People are living too short and dying too long". Start making your health a top priority in your life!
Live Your Best Life!
