Usana products, like other top-shelf vitamins and nutritional supplements, are a little more expensive than what you may find at your local grocery store. There is a reason for this. In the world of nutritional supplements it's a sad but true fact that you get what you pay for.

Usana Products: Top Ingredients, Solid Research, Quality Control

The health and nutritional supplement industry is not regulated by any government agencies. There are no hard and fast rules about the inherent integrity of supplement ingredients or standardized dosages. Quite often, cheap supermarket offerings contain at best synthetic ingredients of varying quality and sub-par efficacy. Further, many vitamin distributors (the brand name on the package) only slap labels on products they didn't actually manufacture themselves. Usana Health Sciences laboratories actually develop all their own products, and manufacture them onsite while adhering to what are among the most stringent quality controls in the industry.

All Usana products are created using the latest scientific information. They have full research and development departments in human nutrition, cellular biology, product chemistry and clinical research. They adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices for pharmaceutical grade products. This voluntary quality control entails extensive product testing, from its beginnings as individual raw ingredients all the way through the manufacturing process until the products are ready for shipment. Every product must pass muster not only with their own quality control teams, but also from analysis from independent third party laboratories employed to confirm the quality and efficacy of each and every product bearing the Usana name.

All this testing which ensures the highest efficacy costs more. So do all natural organic ingredients which are more easily absorbed into the bloodstream than cheaper synthetic alternatives. The cheapest vitamin, if it can't be absorbed into the bloodstream, only gives you expensive urine. On the other hand, Usana and other top level vitamin supplements often cost more because their formulations are superior. And in the end, when one considers the financial impact of health conditions such as cardiovascular disease and some cancers, the price you pay for so-called "expensive" nutritional supplements, which may actually prevent these illnesses, becomes the best money you ever spent.
