USANA: Take Charge of Your Health

  1. 1. TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH
  2. 2. THE KEY POINTS WE WILL COVER KEY POINTS: <ul><li>A CELLULAR NUTRITION </li></ul><ul><li>UNDERSTAND THE DANGER OF </li></ul><ul><li>DEGENERATIVE DISEASES. </li></ul><ul><li>B FOUR ACTIONS FOR HEALTH </li></ul><ul><ul><li>LEARN HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO YOUR LONG TERM HEALTH TODAY. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>C USANA’s NUTRITIONAL SYSTEM </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DISCOVER WHAT MAKES USANA’s NUTRITIONAL PRODUCTS ONE OF THE MOST TRUSTED ON THE MARKET </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. WILL WE LIVE OUR DREAMS IN HAPPINESS AND HEALTH ?
  4. 4. .. OR IS THIS THE REALITY ?
  5. 5. TODAY’S HEALTH REALITY Early 1900s – INFECTIOUS DISEASES • Diphtheria • Influenza • Tuberculosis • Pneumonia Today – DEGENERATIVE DISEASES • Cardiovascular Disease (16.7 million) • Cancer (8.6 million) • Stroke (5.5 million) • Respiratory Disease (3.7 million) • Diabetes (990,000) FEWER and FEWER PEOPLE ARE DYING OF OLD AGE
  6. 6. ARE WE MAINTAINING OUR HEALTH… BY CHANCE? BY CHOICE?
  7. 7. MOST DEGENERATIVE HEALTH CONDITIONS ARE PREVENTABLE <ul><li>Degenerative health conditions are NOT an inevitable result of old age. </li></ul>Old ≠ Sick <ul><li>We can protect our cells from damage and degeneration. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the result of cumulative damage to our cells by FREE RADICALS. </li></ul>Healthy human cells in culture Damaged cells after adding digested products from a fatty meal
  8. 8. THE BATTLE WITHIN OUR CELLS FREE RADICALS ARE PRODUCED BY OUR CELLS. THEY INITIATE DESTRUCTIVE CHAIN REACTIONS THAT DAMAGE OUR CELLS. ANTIOXIDANTS CAN NEUTRALIZE FREE RADICALS TO STOP THE DESTRUCTIVE CHAIN REACTIONS VS A FREE RADICAL IS A REACTIVE MOLECULE WITH A “MISSING” ELECTRON IN ITS OUTER SHELL. AN ANTIOXIDANT NEUTRALIZES A FREE RADICAL BY “DONATING” AN ELECTRON TO IT.
  9. 9. OUR CELLS ARE “INVISIBLE MIRACLES” “ With the right combination of all the nutrients essential for life, I could maintain human cells in a healthy state… without any signs of degeneration or disease.” Dr Myron Wentz Founder and Chairman, USANA Health Sciences, Inc., Recipient of the Albert Einstein Award in the Life Sciences, 2007 OUR CELLS HAVE AN INATE ABILITY TO STAY HEALTHY, AND REPAIR THEMSELVES WHEN DAMAGED. DNA 1) ALL THE NUTRIENTS AS “BUILDING BLOCKS” . 2) ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION FROM FREE RADICAL DAMAGE .
  10. 10. YOUR FOUR ACTIONS FOR HEALTH WE MUST MAKE LIFESTYLE CHOICES THAT GIVE OUR CELLS THE BEST CHANCE OF STAYING HEALTHY. EAT RIGHT 1 EXERCISE REGULARLY 2 MINIMIZE STRESS 3 MAKE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTATION A LIFE-LONG HABIT 4
  11. 11. (1) EAT RIGHT IDEAL FOOD PYRAMID “ EAT LOW IN THE FOOD CHAIN.” - Dr Myron Wentz UNPROCESSED UNCOOKED, VARIETY LOTS AND LOTS : VEGETABLES, FRUITS, PLANT OILS like OLIVE, LEGUMES, NUTS, WHOLE GRAIN FOODS. MODERATELY : LEAN MEAT, POULTRY, FISH, EGGS, YOGURT, CHEESE. SPARINGLY : SUGAR, FAT, e.g. RED MEAT, BUTTER.
  12. 12. HOW HEALTHY IS YOUR DIET? IDEAL FOOD PYRAMID WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER WHEN DECIDING YOUR NEXT MEAL? ACTUAL CONSUMPTION PYRAMID
  13. 13. WHAT DID YOU HAVE FOR LUNCH? EAT RIGHT !
  14. 14. (2) EXERCISE REGULARLY REGULAR ACTIVITY, NOT OVER-STRENUOUS EXERCISES <ul><li>Slows the loss of muscle mass, and promotes cardiovascular fitness </li></ul><ul><li>Promotes the circulation of lymphatic system so waste material can be taken away from cells </li></ul><ul><li>Strengthens bones </li></ul>The human body is designed for MOVEMENT and ACTIVITY.
  15. 15. (3) MINIMIZE STRESS 1) GIVE UP UNHEALTHY HABITS WE ARE OVERLOADING OUR BODY WITH TOXIC CHEMICALS. Cigarette Perfume Alcohol <ul><li>AVOID POLLUTED AREAS AND POTENTIAL HAZARDS </li></ul><ul><li>(preservatives, pesticides, artificial colorings, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>REDUCE MENTAL STRESS </li></ul><ul><li>(foster loving relationships and embrace happiness) </li></ul>
  16. 16. (4) USE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS WE ARE OVER FED AND UNDER NOURISHED <ul><li>MACRO </li></ul><ul><li>NUTRIENTS </li></ul><ul><li>Carbohydrates </li></ul><ul><li>Protein </li></ul><ul><li>Fat </li></ul><ul><li>MICRO </li></ul><ul><li>NUTRIENTS </li></ul><ul><li>Vitamins </li></ul><ul><li>Minerals </li></ul>ANTIOXIDANTS HIGHER nutrient requirement with today’s lifestyle. LOWER nutrient values in today’s food. (Modern agriculture, food processing, food storage.)   WHY?
  17. 17. AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION SUPPORTS ADULTS TAKING VITAMINS JAMA 2002, 287(23): 3117-29 “… insufficient vitamin intake is apparently a cause of chronic diseases. Recent evidence has shown that suboptimal levels of vitamins, even well above those causing deficiency syndromes , are risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.” - Dr Robert H Fletcher MD. MSc “ Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. Pending strong evidence of effectiveness from randomized trials, it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.” - Dr Robert H Fletcher MD. MSc
  18. 18. IS THERE A NUTRITIONAL“MAGIC BULLET”? NATURALLY THE BEST ? NO SINGLE NATURAL PLANT CAN PROVIDE ALL THE NUTRIENTS THE CELL REQUIRES - IN THE RIGHT AMOUNT - IN THE RIGHT FORM - AT THE RIGHT BALANCE. OUR BODY NEEDS BROAD-BASED, BALANCED NUTRITION Nutritional supplements, including USANA products, do not treat or prevent diseases. They maintain health by providing nutrients that we may lack in our diet.
