Proflavanol 90
 Extra strength Proflavanol 90 is now triple the strength of the
 original Proflavanol, making it a powerful weapon in your
 antioxidant arsenal.* Scientists have identified more than 20,000
 bioflavonoids and bioflavonols with differing degrees of antioxidant
 activity. Proanthocyanidins (a type of bioflavonol) appear to be
 some of the most powerful free-radical scavengers yet
 discovered.* Proanthocyanidins are found in many types of foods,
 but only in extremely small amounts.
 Why Proflavanol 90?
   • Proanthocyanidins are distributed to virtually every organ and
      tissue, and remain in the body for up to 72 hours.*
   • Proanthocyanidins may be bioavailable and are absorbed from
      the stomach into the bloodstream.*
   • Not only do proanthocyanidins neutralize free radicals
      themselves, but they conserve and regenerate vitamins C and
      E.*
   • Vitamin E is a powerful free-radical scavenger, and flavonols
      and vitamin C regenerate vitamin E.*
CoQuinone™
The energy that every cell needs to function is produced
through a complex process in the mitochondria, an
organelle within the cell often called the cellular
powerhouse. Cells store energy in a molecule called
adenosine-5-triphosphate or ATP. CoQ10 is an essential
part of the electron transport chain used to make ATP
which is synthesised and used by every cell in the body.
CoQuinone contains advanced levels of CoQ10. Cells with
the highest energy demands, such as in the heart, contain
the highest levels of CoQ10. CoQ10 has been studied for
years in the U.S., Europe, and Japan for its role in
producing cellular energy and re-energising the heart and
other muscles.
  • Helps promote normal, healthy heart function
  • Helps maintain normal, healthy energy metabolism and
    metabolic rate and assists in maintaining peak effort
  • Highly bioavailable, proprietary formula
   Garlic EC
USANA's odor-free Garlic EC is a high-quality, highly
bioavailable form of one of the most beneficial foods and
natural supplements known.
There are numerous garlic products available, but many
provide only limited benefits because some of the active
compounds are neutralized by the acidic environment of
the stomach. Garlic EC is designed to remain intact until it
reaches the intestine.
  • Is a high-potency garlic tablet with guaranteed quality
  • Contains an enteric coating (EC) to maximize
    bioavailability of active constituents and prevent garlic
    odor
  • Provides a broad spectrum of benefits, including
    healthy cardiovascular, immune, and respiratory
    functions*
     BiOmega-3
BiOmega-3 supplies the important omega-3 fatty acids EPA
and DHA in a convenient capsule form.
Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for optimal health and
wellness. But it is difficult to receive the proper balance
because refining processes for today's commercial oils remove
nearly all essential omega-3 fatty acids. BiOmega-3 supplies
the important omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in a
convenient capsule form. These nutrients help support
cardiovascular health, optimal neural growth and development,
and maintain good joint health.*
  • Contains cold-water fish oil rich in the important omega-3
    fatty acids, EPA and DHA
  • Comes in a natural form that is more easily absorbed by the
    body
  • Provides a convenient gel capsule formulation for easy use
    and storage
  • Helps promote optimal cardiovascular health, proper brain
    and neural development, and maintain good joint health
      E Prime
Vitamin E plays a critical role in protecting cell membranes
from oxidative damage,* but from diet alone it is difficult to
obtain the amounts needed for optimal health
Now you can support your body in its fight against free-
radical damage with USANA's E-Prime, a full-spectrum
formulation of the most biologically active form of vitamin E
available.* USANA is proud to offer E-Prime, the premier
vitamin E product on the market today!
  • Provides a broad spectrum vitamin E supplement with
    tocopherols and tocotrienols from natural sources
  • Comes in a 200 IU liquid soft gelatin capsules for
    enhanced bioavailability
  • Complements the USANA(r) Essentials and provides
    optimal levels of vitamin E
       Poly C
Vitamin C is valuable in promoting good health and well-
being.*
The value of vitamin C in promoting good health and well-
being* has been known for years-as evidenced by the
many vitamin C products on the market today. But
USANA's Poly C stands above the rest. Formulated with a
unique blend of highly bioavailable mineral ascorbates, all
of which have potent vitamin C activity, Poly C maintains
higher blood levels of vitamin C than ascorbic acid or other
forms. With Poly C, you'll receive superior vitamin C
protection.
Furnishes an advanced vitamin C supplement based on
USANA's(r) proprietary blend of mineral ascorbates
Provides 600 mg of vitamin C protection in each tablet for
enhanced antioxidant protection
Strengthens the immune system, supports the synthesis of
collagen, and promotes cardiovascular health*
Selenium 25
Selenium was recognise over 40 years ago to be an
essential mineral in animal and human nutrition. Selenium
plays a key role in the glutathione peroxidase (GPx)
enzyme system, one of the most important antioxidant
systems in the body.
The richest dietary sources are meat, fish, whole grains,
and dairy products. Selenium content of grains and
vegetables depends on the amount of the mineral in the
soils in which the crops are grown. Soils in several areas of
the world including New Zealand are selenium deficient.
  • Formulated with selenomethionine, an organic, highly
    bioavailable form of this essential mineral
  • Designed to complement the USANA Essentials in
    providing broad spectrum antioxidant activity for the
    body
  • Is especially important for people living in geographic
    regions with selenium-deficient soils.
  CalMag Plus
CalMag Plus was carefully formulated to enable its
ingredients to work together to promote strong and healthy
bones.
In Australia, osteoporosis affects one in two women and one
in three men after the age of 60. As life span has lengthened
in modern times, the problem of osteoporosis has grown to
epidemic proportions. Although signs of osteoporosis usually
don't occur until the later years of life, getting the proper
amount of calcium in your diet now may prevent calcium
deficiency later. CalMag Plus was carefully formulated to
enable its ingredients to work together to help maintain
healthy bones. Supplementation of calcium is one of the keys
to preventing osteoporosis and maintaining bone health.
  • Contains a balanced formula of calcium, magnesium, and
    vitamin D
  • Provides complete nutritional support to help promote
    optimal bone development and maintenance throughout
    all stages of life.

levels rise and fall, which can cause unpleasant physical
and psychological symptoms. PhytElle can help improve

     Ginkgo - PS
The brain requires high amounts of oxygen and nutrients from
the blood to function properly
As we age, our gastrointestinal system is not as efficient in
absorbing nutrients from our food, and the circulatory system
becomes less effective in delivering oxygen to the tissues,
potentially slowing brain activity. In later years the central
nervous system needs help to obtain the nutrients needed for
optimal functioning. Ginkgo-PS combines two powerful aids to
brain function in a single supplement-ginkgo biloba, and
phosphatidylserine (PS)-for benefits that include optimal mental
performance, memory, and general cognitive function.*
  • Combines standardized, high-potency Ginkgo biloba extract,
    plus phosphatidylserine for healthy mental and cognitive
    function

    to enhance memory*
