Why Vitamin D Level is very important?

Why Vitamin D Level is very important?

Disease Incidence Prevention by Serum 25 (OH) D Level

***ATTENTION READERS *** See the slide below that shows how your higher  serum vitamin D level reflects lower incidence of disease. I thought to share it with all of you as I believe it's a valuable information. Here is the graph!!

Now you know why I say a level of 50 or above for your Serum 25(OH) D level is important! Do you know what your Serum 25(OH) Vitamin D level is?

P.S. Considering I have been in the sunshine most of my last 20 years and yet I discovered that my Vitamin D level was not optimal. So I have been taking my USANA Vitamin D (2,000 IU) for the past 3 years especially when is flu season so I can build up my immune system and is a great defense for SAD. (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

Healthy Holiday Treats!

Healthy Holiday Treats!

As Christmas approach, delicious holiday desserts and drinks accost us everywhere – Starbucks, grocery stores and even Whole Foods.

I’m a big believer in “filling the void,”meaning finding something healthy and yummy to take the place of a “not-so-healthy” drink or dessert. I’ve never been a big fan of deprivation and find that the more we deny ourselves something, the more we want it…and then eat multiple servings

Here are three absolutely delicious smoothies that you can make with my favorites  USANA Nutrimeals™– not only during the holiday season, but all year around. They taste amazing, are completely healthy and balanced, and will help keep your cravings and nutrition plan in check during the holidays.

Mix all ingredients for each recipe in a blender or blender bottle. You can also warm your water and skip the ice if you want a “hot” treat, enjoy!

You Won’t Even Miss the Pumpkin Pie

3 scoops USANA Vanilla Nutrimeal* 8-10 oz. water 1-2 tbsp pumpkin butter (or ¼ cup pumpkin puree) ½ -1 tsp cinnamon ¼ tsp ginger ¼ tsp nutmeg ¼ tsp allspice ½ cup ice

“Cozy Gingerbread Latte”

3 scoops USANA Vanilla Nutrimeal* 10 oz water 1 tsp molasses ...

USANA & THE WTA’S CHANGE MAKERS

USANA & THE WTA’S CHANGE MAKERS

Every time a WTA player hits an ace, they raise money for an amazing cause - and it's doubled for USANA Ambassadors. Who's hitting the most Aces For Humanity so far?

The Aces For Humanity campaign was launched by USANA and the WTA at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells this year, where every ace hit by a WTA player at Premier-level events translates into a donation to the USANA True Health Foundation, whose mission is to provide the most critical human necessities to those who are suffering or in need around the world. For every ace hit by any player the WTA donates $5, and for every ace hit by a USANA Brand Ambassador the WTA donates $10.

3875 aces have been served among all WTA players. USANA Brand Ambassadors Eugenie Bouchard,Sam Stosur, Zheng Jie, Zhang Shuai, Sloane Stephens, Madison Keys and Monica Puig have hit 387.

"The assistance we continue to receive from the WTA and its players has allowed us to quickly respond to disasters and aid thousands of people around the world when they need it most," Elaine Pace, USANA True Health Foundation President, said. "We are so grateful for their support."

Booster C 600™ To Your Health

Booster C 600™ To Your Health

Teaching tennis and traveling allow me to be around people, although sometimes when I start feeling like my immune system could use a little help, havingBooster C 600™ on hand can make all the difference. In fact, this helps me stay on top of my game thanks to its blend of immune-supporting ingredients:

1) Vitamin C as Poly C - Vitamin C is king when it comes to supplements geared toward immune support. USANA’s Poly C blend is vitamin C kicked up a notch. Studies showed that Poly C provides a higher level of vitamin C in the body over a longer period of time than ascorbic acid alone, which is what most other vitamin C supplements contain.

2) Zinc which is known to support the immune system.

3) Elderberry -  Flavonoid-powered black elderberries are a concentrated source of anthocyanins (immune-supporting antioxidants.)

4) Echinacea - This herb has been used for its health promoting benefits for centuries. It’s generally best to use it before or right when you start feeling a little crummy to activate your body’s natural resistance to invaders. The purpurea species used in USANA Booster C 600™ has been shown to be most effective for immune support.
