USANA Optimizers BiOmega™ Gets Seal Of Approval From ConsumerLab.com

Stocks in this article: USNA





SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- There's nothing fishy here.  USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional company, announced today that one of it's most popular supplements, BiOmega TM, has been evaluated and approved by ConsumerLab.com, LLC, a leading provider of independent product test results.

In a recent study, ConsumerLab.com determined that USANA's BiOmega TM contains its labeled amount of Fish Oil, EPA, DHA and Omega-3s.  This study tested similar products from various nutritional supplement manufacturers to determine whether they in fact contained the amounts of these compounds stated on their labels.  Problems were discovered in 30 percent of the other Fish Oil and Omega-3 supplements.  The review can be found on the company's website at www.consumerlab.com.

In light of new FDA warnings against potentially unsafe supplements available on the market, studies like this help consumers and healthcare professionals make better decisions and more informed recommendations when it comes to supplements.

"We did it again.  This is the fourth year in a row that USANA products have received high marks from ConsumerLab.com," says Dan Macuga, USANA Chief Communications Officer.  "Previously we've earned approval for our Chelated Mineral, Mega Antioxidant, and Visionex ® supplements.  We're proud of how well our products have performed in independent testing from reputable third-party organizations."

"We take quality control and testing very seriously at USANA," states Dr. Carsten Smidt, USANA Vice President of Research and Development.  "There is a lot of research and development that goes into each of our products. We use the highest quality ingredients possible."

Recently, USANA was named the # 1 Rated Overall Merchant Based on Customer Satisfaction and the #1 Rated Direct Sales Merchant Based on Customer Satisfaction in the 2011 ConsumerLab.com Survey of Vitamin and Supplement Users.

Since 1999, ConsumerLab.com has tested more than 3,200 products, 350 different brands and nearly every type of popular supplement in order to help consumers and healthcare professionals identify the best quality health and nutrition products. ConsumerLab.com is also the only third-party verification group that freely publishes its testing methods and quality criteria/standards.
