20160313_105024I just returned from the BP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California. I was a special guest in the USANA Health Sciences suite, and got to meet with some of the athletes from the Women’s Tennis Association — Sam Stosur and Monica Puig. I got to hear from the physiotherapist and trainer, Carol, and the new CEO of the WTA, Steve Simon. USANA was celebrating its tenth year of being the preferred supplement provider for the WTA. It was really powerful to hear, directly from the athletes, their trainer and CEO how important they feel taking the supplements is in supporting their training and competition schedule. It was also gratifying as I have been on many of the same supplements for almost fifteen years now.

Two of the most important products they cited were the USANA Probiotics and the C-Booster Plus. Both are used to keep up their players’ immunity while going through their grueling travel schedule, crossing time-zones and having to play the very next day! When they have a multi-city and country travel schedule, they get on the C-Booster for ten days. This helps them combat the germs all through airports, hotels and airplanes. (C-Booster has Vitamin C, echinacea, elderberry and zinc). C-Booster is my go-to if I get even a tickle of a sore throat or am exposed to sick people. I don’t get flu shots! I just load up on the C-Booster, the Proflavanol (grapeseed extract and Vitamin C), extra Vitamin D-3, drink lots of fluids and hit the sack early! I can usually kick the bug in 24 hours.

Now, back to the athletes. They also swear by the USANA Essentials — which they get in their personalized HealthPaks. The Essentials are the foundation supplement — with over twenty-five vitamins and antioxidants and eleven essential chelated minerals. If you tried to match the amount of nutrition in this power product with food, you would need to eat 22,000 calories of food a day, and spend about $33! Much easier to take the Essentials morning and night. Remember, your body does all its repairs while you sleep, so you need to give it all the building blocks it needs. Plus, if you get enough vitamins and minerals, the body knows it is optimally-nourished and you will keep the fat cells from growing! Which will result in losing weight….

Another key product the athletes use is the Procosa — a special joint-support product with glucosamine, turmeric and Vitamin C. This has kept my knees happy for years now! Prior to USANA it hurt to go up and down stairs, and now I can climb mountains!

I have relied on these products for over fifteen years. The WTA has relied on them for ten now. Maybe it is time for you to try them? http://energyunlimited.usana.com to order with a Preferred Customer discount. You can also take a FREE True Health Assessment and find out what your body needs and wants. USANA will customize your pak, just like they do for the athletes!

Why do you suppose the WTA and another 489 elite athletes trust USANA? Simple — every product has a 100% purity and potency guarantee. They are manufactured in USANA’s FDA-registered manufacturing facility, in Utah. They have passed both ConsumerLabs and NSF. Plus, they are ranked #1 supplement in North America in the “Nutrisearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements”. If that is not enough to get you to try them, how about a money-back guarantee from USANA when you order through a rep (like me?).

I recommend these supplements to all my clients because I know they work! We get great results. A side benefit of the Essentials is they help get rid of cravings because your body does not need any micro-nutrients and is “Happy”. So you can stay “Sexy, Lean and Strong!”

So, if you want to feel like an athlete, with energy to burn and stamina to get through your workout, give them a try!
