Usanimals, one of the USANA Essentials products, is an advanced formulation for important nutrients beneficial for the maintenance of good health.
The Benefits of Usanimals
Many studies show that we do not receive the nutrition we need from our diets. Less than 25 per cent of us eat the recommended five servings or more of fruits and vegetables each day, and adequate amounts of key nutrients such as zinc, vitamin B6, magnesium, and calcium are missing from our diet. Vitamins C and D are also often deficient. A quality nutritional supplement, such as Usanimals, can help ensure that none of these essential nutrients are missing.
The Science of Usanimals
Beta carotene is converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A helps in the maintenance of eyes, skin, and the proper function of the immune system.
Usanimals contains a varefully proportioned complex of B vitamins, which is support normal growth and development: biotin, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, and vitamins B6 and B12 help the body metabolize fats, protein, and carbohydrates. Pantothenic acid, riboflavin, and vitamin B6 help in tissue formation. Folate and vitamin B12 help to form red blood cells, which transport oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from the body.
Critical to maintaining good health, vitamin C supports many importany functions and helps in the development and maintenance of cartilage. Vitamin C is also a source of antioxidants that helps maintain good health.
Vitamin D is an important nutrient found in only a limited number of foods, and many people do not get adequate amounts. Many cells have vitamin D receptors and require it for healthy functions. In addition to its important role in supporting bone health, vitamin D helps in the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus throughout the body. It also helps in the maintenance of immune function.
Vitamin E helps to form red blood cells and helps protect against free radical damage to maintain good health. Eye health also depends on adequate amounts of vitamin E as well as vitamins A and C.
Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet, and regular exercise may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.
The thyroid fland releases formones that are important for healthy brain development, protein synthesis, metabolic dunction, and enzymatic activity. Iodine helps in the fucntion of the thyroid galnd to support normal growth and development.
As a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems, magnesium helps support good health throughout the body. It supports the development of cones and teeth, tissue formation, and muscle.
Zinc is a necessary element for normal growth and development. It is essential for supporting healthy metabolism, skin, connective tissue formation, and immune function.
