About USANA Health Sciences
USANA Health Sciences, Inc is one of America’s 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 Singapore.
A lot of supplement companies turn to the MLM model as a way to quickly spread their products without investing heavily in advertising. By relying on independent distributors to promote and sell the products these companies gain a much more intimate relationship with their customers.
Furthermore since most distributors are also using the products themselves they are able to give a personal account of the supplements’ effectiveness and results.

USANA makes products in 4 main categories:
Nutritionals - This segment includes supplements based on USANA’s proprietary CellSentials™triple-action cellular nutritional system. These products are designed to improve overall health and feature broad-spectrum daily mineral supplement, vitamin and antioxidant supplement.

USANA Health Sciences Business Opportunity:
The company provides a robust MLM plan that allows you to build a large network and run your own business. They use a binary compensation plan that lets you earn from: retail sales, a percentage of sales from your recruits, and a variety of performance bonuses based on volume and growth.
Your retail sales are based on the difference between your preferred price of a product and the price that you choose to sell at usually around a 10% markup.
USANA will provide you with a host of tools including your personal website that you can direct your customers to. They also have lots of sales tools for in person meetings and ongoing sales training.
You will need to purchase a welcome kit for $29.95 to get started.. This will include helpful business information.
MLM businesses are not easy and it takes a certain type of person to succeed. Once you exhaust your immediate network of friends, family, and acquaintances you need to start getting creative on how to market your independent business.
It will be important to educate yourself on all USANA products so that you can successfully explain them and highlight their benefits during your sales presentations.
The reason that some network marketing businesses get in trouble is when they highlight the business opportunity over the products. That’s when they enter the territory of pyramid scheme, essentially recruiting people with the promise of earning lots of money through vitamin sales when in actuality the only thing being sold is the business opportunity itself.
Be very wary of anyone telling you that you can make a lot of money in this business or that it is easy. On USANA’s website you can see a detailed breakdown of the earnings for all of their distributors.
Keep in mind not everyone does this full time, and many simply sign up to purchase USANA products for themselves at the discounted rate. Nevertheless in 2016 around 84% of all distributors made less than $500.
As with most MLM companies because there is so much anecdotal feedback reviews can be very mixed. Some people really enjoy the products and claim that they’ve aided them with a variety of conditions.
Conversely you can find others who have claimed not much difference and health and think that they are overpriced. Do your research on what you need for your health, what USANA offers, and where to get the best price for what you need.

104 ‘USANA Health Sciences’ Reviews
Hi there! I’ve been using USANA since 2014. My friend recommended it to me because I was looking for something that would help me with my anxiety problem. Since I started using USANA, my condition has improved. I will recommend taking Cellsentials, Biomega and Proflavanol even if you are not suffering from Anxiety. Until now I’m still taking USANA supplements and keep recommending it to friends specially with certain symptoms. It really helps!
I have been using the products, skin line and nutritional supplements since 2002. I
did not want to become a distributor because I
had other projects/businesses. I am now in my sixties and feel better than I did twenty years ago. I never regret money spent on Usana products.
There is a lot of generalized fallacy in this article. They derive their opinion about Usana's structure because is it a MLM company and then make assumptions.
The most important deception in this article is that it states that Vitamin and Supplement companies do not have to submit to FDA regulations. This is a true fact, but USANA volunteered their product to be tested by the FDA and has been ranked by a third party laboratory as the top Vitamin Supplement for 12 years in a row. They have over 700 Olympian level athletes who trust their brand and have committed to their safety by offering $1 million to any athlete of theirs traced with banned substances.
This company is a MLM for sure. The major problem with people's reviews of these are that its all up to the individual. Lazy people sign up for MLM programs trying to get rich quick and aren't willing to put in the effort make it happen.
USANA is above board as a company and I trust them. Also, in case you were wondering. I'm not a seller/distributor/associate of USANA. I've just done my research. I don't profit from this review, but I felt it was my job to set a few things straight.
Thanks fellow humans!
USANA's not a SCAM, both business and products is AWESOME. 18 years old here ^_^ USANA LOVER
Products have almost no natural ingredients: Fail.
Products are often tested/reviewed by people sponsored/controlled by Usana: Fail.
Almost nobody make money in Usana: Fail.
Usana sellers are incredibly unfit and unhealthy thinking that a pill will counteract a day of processed food consumption: Fail.
Usana is centered in Utah where it is the most difficult to sue them of all states, hence so many multilevel companies are there: Fail.
Almost nobody thinks highly of them unless they are selling it and almost always they have recently signed up not realizing reality: Fail.
If you want to know if the product works get a blood test from your doctor start using the some of the BEST health supplements on the market for at least 3 months and then go back to your doctor for another blood test ...see how much you improved. I KNOW IT WORKS FOR ME !
Let me tell you this. A starter pack will cost you 39,000 PHP. An auto-order for 1 business center is 7,000 PHP. Multiply it by 12 months. That was 84,000 PHP a year. Can you earn more than 84,000 PHP a year? If yes, how much will you earn? 100,000? 16,000 PHP income per year? Are you serious? Oh btw, I haven't included the initial 39,000 PHP for membership.
If a company is earning more from recruiting than selling then that's a scam. Where's the integrity in earning from your downline's expense? The lifetime passive income is also a lie. USANA is a big lie. I've been there. Done that. Take my word.
The products: Almost all are synthetic. If you needed calcium would you chew on a rock or eat calcium rich food? Any quality health authority will stipulate the importance of organic food as a vitamin source. Ascorbic acid (their Vitamin C) is synthetic. B12 should be methylcobolamine, not cobalamine which is synthetic. Almost all their products are now synthetic. Its cheaper. If you really need to consume more nutrients than your diet is now giving, buy a quality juicer (slower rotation). I've read thousands of articles and books on health. Not once have any recommended any MLM company, not once. That says volumes. These authors live and breathe health. No Usana, Amway, Quickstar, Shaklee, Melaleuca, etc. When people recommend it, they are inevitably a distributor. When you Google them you notice that they control the first few pages of hits. They are paying to be there. When almost every seller loses money, what does that tell you about this company?
I was introduced to USANA just over 8 months ago and initially purchased the products. After very quickly feeling the amazing positive effects they had on my life I decided to look at the business plan. This is NOT a pyramid scheme - that is illegal. If you are not into MLM then you will be a slave to the 'pay cheque' for the rest of your life. That is fine, as this business is not for everyone, but you will be left behind if you want financial success. Avon, Amway, Melaluca etc, etc are all MLM companies. I myself have been both an Avon and an Amway rep for many years, but in 8 mths of being with USANA I am earning more than I ever did with either of those companies. The binary compensation plan was developed by the Harvard Business School and is very fair. With all MLM companies, look at it with an open mind and go with your gut feeling, not the opinion of others. The only way to fail in this business though, is to quit!
Usana is not just for health and business, it is actually a lifestyle. if you are stranded and stock to your 5, 10, or 20 years working in your daily job then your have a poor lifestyle. in Usana you can do your business anywhere, anytime, with your choice. make a change in your life. don't look for flaws, see the brighter picture. i am very sure that only Usana can provide that your company cannot.
