SALT LAKE CITY, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Three popular USANA Health Sciences Inc. (NYSE: USNA) products have received ConsumerLab.com's distinguished seal of approval.

In a recent review of multivitamin supplements, the following three USANA products passed ConsumerLab.com's stringent label testing:

  • USANA® The Essentials? ? Top-quality daily vitamin, mineral and antioxidant supplement for adults
  • USANA® Body Rox? ? Complete daily vitamin, mineral and antioxidant supplement for teenagers
  • USANA® Usanimals? ? Advanced formula daily vitamin, mineral and antioxidant supplement for children

"We are confident in our products. We know they contain exactly what is listed on the label, but it's essential to have third-party confirmation and approval," says Dan Macuga, USANA's chief communications officer. "We are pleased to see how well our products have performed in independent testing from reputable third-party organizations such as ConsumerLab.com."

During this review, USANA® The Essentials?, Body Rox? and Usanimals? met all the criteria and recommendations to receive ConsumerLab.com's quality certification.

"We use the highest-quality ingredients possible," says Dr. John Cuomo, USANA's executive director of product development and technologies. "We follow strict pharmaceutical quality protocols that guarantee potency and purity. This is reflected on all of our labels."

These product approvals come on the heels of another top honor. Recently, USANA was named the No. 1 Rated Brand in Direct Sales Based on Customer Satisfaction in ConsumerLab.com's 2013 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.
