Amazing Changes! My First USANA Product Review – Part 1

written by Head Health Nutter August 11, 2009

This first USANA Health Sciences product review required me to step back and really evaluate how I’ve been feeling lately. I got a great bird’s eye view and what a surprise!

I’ve been rocking my world over the past 6 weeks and to give credit where credit is due, I’m convinced USANA has been a major contribution to this enhanced, effective state. This post will explain what lead me to try USANA and the positive results showing up in my life.


We’ve been questioning the quality of our current food supply and wondering just how damaging our hectic lifestyles are in these Live Lighter posts:

Although I lead a healthy lifestyle (as much as I can at any given time) and am generally very healthy, since September of last year, life’s been harder than it was when I started Live Lighter. I’m imbalanced again. *sigh*

If you’ve been following Live Lighter, you’ll know that my imbalance has been showing up as health issues, including digestive trouble and addiction. Both of which negatively affect nutrition (further complicating the imbalance) and therefore hormones and mood.

A general list of health complaints

Although I still enjoyed good days, by the time June rolled around the not-so-good days were becoming more frequent. To give you an idea of how I was feeling at the time, here is a general list of my symptoms varying in severity and time:

Lack of energy, motivation and enthusiasm; loss of optimism (negative thoughts reigned); cravings for sweets, carbs and junk food; increased appetite and addictive eating; mild anxiety and depression; difficulty waking in the morning; mild congestion; weight gain (10 lbs since February); moodiness; PMS; acne; digestive issues (including constipation); joint stiffness/soreness; water retention in hands, face & feet; cold hands & feet; poor memory and concentration; low self-esteem and difficulty making decisions; and irregular menses.

USANA: a gift from an angel

USANAA friend of mine, Tiffany Strobel, called to see how I was doing in early June – it was one of those days. She said she’s been trying some health products that I might be interested in investigating.

She invited me to a Healthy For Life seminar where I learned about USANA’s basic 3-prong approach to health:

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Supplementation

Eureka! The only missing piece in my healthy living pursuits so far has been supplementation! Considering what I had just learned about the quality of our food supply and my health issues that actually suck the nutrients from my body, I decided to give it a try.

Amazing Changes!

Within 2 weeks I could feel a noticeable difference in my mood. My optimism and motivation returned on a more frequent basis and it was easier to get up in the morning. It’s been 6 weeks since I started using USANA products and all my symptoms have reduced in severity and length.

I feel so much lighter! I’ve lost 5 pounds, have twice the energy, my mood has stabilized, food addictions have been severed, my face has cleared up, and the best part of it all, no more PMS!

But how did I do it?

That’s for tomorrow’s post where I reveal what USANA products and advice I’ve been taking, what I like and dislike about the products, how I reacted on them and who may benefit the most from USANA.

Yeah! I’m so happy to hear that you’re feeling so great! I love Usana too, it’s changed my health and I just feel like I’m in control of my health taking it – like health insurance πŸ™‚

Great Post Stephanie!

@Christa You’re so right, it IS like health insurance but even better because we’re benefiting from it right now as well as later!

@Rima Thanks for taking the time to read Live Lighter and for your wonderful comment. πŸ™‚

Dee, thank you for commenting on this post – you reminded me that I had wanted to write an update…

While the USANA products worked for me, they are expensive – basically you’re paying a premium to ensure you get the highest quality. (I needed to sell the product in order to afford to continue taking them; however, because everyone I know is in my same income bracket, they would have had to sell it to afford it, too, which they weren’t up to doing.)

What ultimately made me reconsider becoming an affiliate is that I gave the supplements’ ingredients list to a pharmacist who said that the ingredients that USANA used, while high in quality, were not ingredients that warranted a spike in price.

This is only ONE opinion, mind you, so I encourage you to investigate on your own to see if it’s right for you. All I can say is that I really DID feel a big difference when taking USANA supplements and although I take good quality supplements today, I haven’t experienced the difference with them that I felt when taking USANA supplements.

If I could afford them, I’d be taking them today!
