  • Lastly, we need to add a good quality nutritional supplement as a life-long habit. We mentioned earlier that the body requires the basic building blocks that are provide by food. These include macro-nutrients like carbohydrates, protein and fat. It also includes micro nutrients like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Today, the higher nutrient requirements because of our lifestyle, and the simultaneous lower nutrient value in food makes supplementation prudent. While our standard of living has gone up, and fewer people are going hungry, we cannot ascertain the amount of nutrients in our food. Many people are overfed but undernourished.
  • USANA has been voted the Best Dietary Supplement company in Utah’s “Best of State” award. This shows you the recognition accorded to USANA by the business community in Utah State – where close to 100 nutritional supplements manufacturers are based. Let me introduce you to the products you can buy in USANA Singapore. USANA’s nutritional system consists of Essentials as the basic foundation. The other products are called Optimizers – i.e., you add them to Essentials to “customise” the nutrition to your needs. The Optimizers are colour-coded, so that those with purple labels contain nutrients that are good for cardiovascular health, those with orange labels support health cellular metabolism, etc.
