What supplements do I need & Why

If I had to guess you probably have a few (or a lot) questions about supplements.  Am I right?!  Why are supplements so confusing? I know I’ve been confused before. It’s very frustrating when you hear so many different opinions on what products are best and which ones you should take. I hope I can help you better understand why you need supplements and why you need to make sure you know exactly what they are and where they are coming from.

Think of supplements like your body’s insurance. It’s probably safe to say that 95% of people do not get all their veggie and fruit servings in, in a days time. As healthy as we try to be, life sometimes can get crazy busy. It also makes it difficult to get all the vitamins we need when farmers are producing crops at such fast rates, stripping the soil of it’s nutrients that we need in our foods. So yes, we need to supplement our bodies for what we lack in our diets. 

I chose to partner with a company that I can trust; that I love; and that I can see real results with. USANA supplements are what I personally use as well as my family, and are what I recommend for you and yours. USANA produces high-quality vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants your body needs for good health. Other reasons I love USANA: effective, safe, science-based and pharmaceutical quality.

I think that means he really likes them!

I take an increased amount that helps with my psoriasis.
