Legit or Scam?
Sciences, Inc is one of Americaís
leading health supplement
Multi-Level/Network Marketing companies.
Currently USANA Health Sciences distributes
products in the United States, Canada, the
UK, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and
The problem with MLM companies that focus
on health supplements is that itís near
impossible to find out if the products
actually work. The business models of USANA
and similar companies prevent this
for several reasons.
First off, companies like USANA Health
Sciences are usually founded by people with
doctorate degrees in the sciences. This allows them
to boast about the chemical make up of their
supplements using terms that average folks
products are not FDA approved these experts
conduct independent research for all their
results. It becomes hard to tell if their
information is biased or truly accurate. Itís hard to get a straight
answer from distributors of health
supplements because these people have a
vested interest in selling these products.
In regards to the USANA Health
Sciences business opportunity there have
been mixed reports about the profit
potentials. USANA entered legal proceedings
against an individual that reported on the
failures of the majority of USANA
There has been back and forth
slander between both parties complicating
the issue even further. However on the USANA
website it states that the average earnings
for North American distributors in 2005 were
If you look at MLM companies that have
posted income results for their distributors
this number seems very accurate. The general
breakdown for MLM companies will usually
reveal that between 80-90% of the people are
barely clearing costs of running the
business. Around 5-10% make an average
living something like 40-60k a year, and the
illustrious <5% are making serious
Despite the pervasiveness of these facts
many people still join MLM programs like USANA Health Sciences. Usually itís
because they are referred by friends or
family who they trust or simply because they
believe that they can be in that tiny elite
group making money.

If there are people on top there are also people on the bottom. The people on the bottom is lifting the people on top. Go figure!!

I signed up for USANA as it was recommended by a friend.
USANA products are good quality as far as I can tell, however it appears to be an MLM organization and as a consequence their products are way more expensive than equivalent products from your local supplier.
Further more their customer service folks are all show, no go, unless it's about collecting your hard earned $'s, at which point they become remarkably efficient.
AVOID THIS COMPANY, SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY PRODUCTS FROM ANY OF THE TRIED AND PROVEN MANUFACTURES THROUGH YOUR LOCAL "VITAMIN" STORE.
AVOID USANA IT VERGES ON SCAM, IN MY OPINION.

I would like to ask if Myron Wentz is really a Albert Einstein Award recipient?
I surf the net and with the help of wikipedia, there is no information about Albert Einstein Award in his bibliography. and when I try to search the recipient of Albert Einstein Award, I can't find the name of Myron Wentz???
Though there is a lot of link that telling that he is a recipient but i dont know if it is fake.

This is so interesting to read. I just hope that this blog will not be used as "research" to someone who is considering Usana as a stream of income or a nutrition supplier because obviously this is NOT research to read a whole bunch of opinions, especially not knowing who the person is. With all this negativity about Usana as company..makes no sense..if your "friend" who referred you to the company did not take care of you, then it's your "friend" who scammed you, NOT the company. If you are not educated about the value of high quality nutrition, then it's your "friend" who did not educate you on it, NOT the company. If you didn't make any money with Usana, it's your "hard work", not Usana! Get it straight..millions of people go to college, not everyone graduates, is school a scam? Haha. It's only logical that in life, they're are percentages for everything..because there are always going to be people who put in more effort than others. There's always going to be people who are more willing to learn and change than others.
If you are saying all these bad things about Usana's marketing system or simply how they generate income..what are you comparing it to? A job? A traditional business? Don't compare an apple to an orange! Get educated about the direct selling industry. Get educated about entrepreneurship. Get educated on nutrition. It's 2011, it's a new world now, traditional jobs will take you no where.
This post is no means to "persuade" anyone to join Usana because it doesn't benefit me at all if you join. I was just expressing what I've come to learn about society..when someone is not educated about something, they're scared. When something is new, they're scared. Get educated about what you're talking about before you speak. Your negative, biased opinions can be a lot more damaging than you know. Usana changes lives, if you allow it to change your's!

usana distributors are really unprofessional. in terms of the way they do invite in their scam business. they lie to meet with people that they know in a small place then after youve come then boom its a meeting of usana scam!! and the place my god i wont join myself with those kind of people who look like a scammers the way they dress themselves. im partnering with a company who is really big, legit .. accredited by DSAP..

I tried to use USANA products as it was referred to me by a friend. I can say that the nutritional products are EXCEPTIONAL. It helped my family, relatives and friends in terms of health, a lot. I have tried almost all the products, but it's not like other products in the market as it's the best that we have used. No product comes close to the quality of products they provide.
Don't mind those people saying negative things about USANA since they only have known little things about the company and the products.
I dont care whatever negative feedback they give and dont believe them because for me, USANA products are the best. They're simply the BEST. Thank you USANA for making such quality and superior products.
You Rock, USANA!

Usana is never FDA-approved, only their facilities are. No supplement can be approved by fda. This is totally a money-making scheme because that is what keeps the company and its constituents survive in the market. Have you ever wondered why it was never able to go back to NYSE? Let alone that fact.

Why is it that USANA is not a member of DSAP(Direct Selling Association of the Philippines). if it is really legit? Many big MLM Companies are members of it and I can't see USANA being on that list. DSAP determines if a company is a scam or not based on Philippine laws. Please use DSAP website as reference.

Usana products are of the highest quality, which is why they are expensive. When looking Lyle MacWilliam's comparative guide, they are much better than most other vitamins on the market.
The company has good intentions, and uses science for only good. I have a lot of respect for Usana.

I think it is a scam, disguised as some promising way to earn money. I have been tricked into going to meetings or whatever u call those, to be recruited. The way I understood the scheme is, if u want to stay in the game u need to purchase some package or whatever. It sounds like u are actually paying for membership, except what u get is membership products. I think this is one of the things that helps this company survive longer, along with their small percentage of real consumers (those who are actually buying products coz they want to, and not for the sake of earning points or maintaining membership).
Its not sales to real consumers, its their associates trying to be active that helps this company generate income. Maybe their product is really good, but their cost is just unbelievably too pricey as well. I remember they mentioned to me, the mission/vision of the Dr who founded this brand, if his aim is to help people live healthier lives, why not make it more affordable for everyone?
I also learned that being included in the NYSE does not make a company automatically 100% legit as NYSE does not conduct investigations. Also for other recommendations of this brand on books etc, guys if they earn so much they can easily buy their way to it, just saying, but I may be wrong too.

for those who dont believe in networking, try to figure it out. do you have facebook? do you watch tv? do you buy products that was advertised on television or recommended by friends regardless if its on medicine or just food? well, i tell you. that is another form of networking. Networking is not just tangible, it can be intangible also..

Why are people so into this product? It's like a contagious disease that spreads quickly. But that's really not my concern. My point is, those fast-food restaurants that are always full of USANA members trying to present there products to people. If they are really rich, why can't they afford to build their own McDonalds for USANA purposes? Just sayin'. It's annoying. True story.

Have not had the flu or a cold in 15 years thanks to Usana. Use to get very sick at least twice a year. I'm 84 years old. Young friends in 30'sand 40' are always asking why I never get sick. I tell them I take Usana Vitamins. YOU SHOULD TO!!!!!

All I can say is we in our family are all using USANA. It's excellent. It maintained good/excellent health in our family members. I don't care what negative comments other people say against USANA. What is important is ...it helped and is helping a lot to maintain our good health..that's all. Good luck to all those who are using USANA... good and excellent health is ours. For those who are commenting negative to USANA...it's okay no problem.

I went to a Santa ranch with a neighbor and her boyfriend.
I had no idea their ploy was to introduce me to MLM!
Can't stand the scam! I've been around long enough to see people get 'brain washed' into thinking they can make millions and retire.
After a year, they realize they've lost half their friends and relatives aren't retuning their calls.
And then they are left with a load of inventory they can't move, much less take themselves!
I have yet to hear people talk about the actual products, the names, how they use them, and the results.
This might as well be another Quixtar / Amway business!!
