USANA Products in China

USANA Asia Pacific Convention Brings Excitement, Big Announcement

The festivities of USANA’s 2011 Asia Pacific Convention are drawing to a close, and it’s been an incredible time in Hong Kong. With all the excellent entertainment, information, and huge announcements, there are a lot of things for Associates to take home. 

But the biggest takeaway came from a game-changing announcement on Thursday. USANA products will be available in China, licensed through BabyCare. This announcement excited everyone in attendance, including Dr. Myron Wentz, USANA’s founder, who gave his endorsement during his time on the Convention stage.

Starting with the announcement, four USANA products are now available in China: Essentials Men’s and Women’s Multi-Vitamins and Minerals; Soya Lecithin & Linolenic Acid Softgel; and Soyamax Energy Soy Protein Powder with Calcium + D.

These products will be available immediately, but in the near future, BabyCare will release five Sensé™ products into China—Gentle Daily Cleanser, Hydrating Toner, Daily Moisturizing Crème, Perfecting Essence, and Eye Nourisher.

And the news gets even better! Later this year, even more USANA products will be available in China. Licensed via BabyCare, Poly C, Active Calcium, Proflavanol C60, and Hepasil DTX will make their way into the Chinese market.

These USANA products will be available alongside the already stellar line of products currently available through BabyCare—products produced with the same focus on superior ingredients and manufacturing that have been hallmarks of the USANA for nearly 20 years. This shared emphasis on quality is what makes USANA and BabyCare such a perfect fit. 

Working together, USANA and BabyCare will continue to bring the highest-quality nutritional products to families in China, advancing a common goal of spreading health and wellness around the world.

Social Media and Network Marketing

Social Media & Network Marketing

– by Pete & Dora Zdanis

Network marketing is a business of making contact with others, learning what their concerns and needs are, and then sharing information with them about how, in this case, USANA can be the solution for their concerns and needs. Social media provides an excellent way to accomplish these steps with a large number of people, whether they live across the street, across the country or around the world, on a 24-7 basis.

Our social media strategy is to establish a friendly, yet professional, presence on various social media. We share information about ourselves so that people can learn more about who we are and feel that they know us as people instead of just an online user name. We also post information and ideas (not necessarily related to USANA) that others can find to be of interest or benefit to them so that they think of us as a caring, helpful resource that they can be comfortable in communicating with.

As a result, we have had success in introducing the USANA products and business plan to contacts we have made on social media sites, which have resulted in retail sales, PC enrollments and Associate enrollments.

While we certainly make it clear that we are USANA Associates by including that information in background and biographical sections of our social media profiles, we are very careful not to post blatant advertising and solicitations in our messages. Such “spamming” is a turn-off to most people, and will severely damage your credibility quickly. Just as you would not walk up to a complete stranger on the street and ask them to sign up with you in USANA, you shouldn’t show up in a social media community and immediately start soliciting for customers or business partners.

Over the years, USANA has gained significant credibility in both the nutritional and financial worlds, with more and more accolades coming in on a regular basis. Eventually, your social media contacts are going to come across these accolades, and one of your goals should be to capitalize on this credibility by making sure that as many people as possible think of you whenever they think of USANA. 

We use social media services as just one of many tools in our business building tool box, and do not rely on them as a primary business building method. As with any other business building method, becoming effective with social media involves a learning curve. Start slowly by setting up your online presence and exploring the services you are using. Become familiar with all of their features and policies so that you can become a good “citizen” of the social media communities you become a part of.

It is also important for you to have an online presence separate and apart from social media sites. A good example would be a USANA webhosting site. Make sure that your webhosting site is as professional, attractive and interesting as possible. When a social media contact asks you for more information about USANA, you will then have a place to send them, and information to share, prior to speaking with them on the phone or in person.  

Most of all, be patient. It takes time to develop a group of friends and followers on social media sites, but it will definitely pay off over the long term.

The Healthy Home: 31 Ways to Protect Yourselves from Toxins

The Healthy Home: 31 Ways to Protect Yourselves from Toxins

By Therese J. Borchard
Associate Editor

31 Ways to Protect Yourselves from Toxins 

In their exceptional, informative book The Healthy Home: Simple Truths of Protect Your Family From Hidden Household Dangers, son and father team Myron Wentz and Dave Wentz tackle the topic of toxins from room to room, starting with the bedroom and ending with the garage and yard. “Every second of every day, we face an onslaught of unnecessary dangers—toxic chemicals, negative energies, unforeseen side effects, and more—in our modern world,” writes Dave, the younger Wentz.

Myron, his father, who holds a Ph.D. in microbiology with a specialty in immunology from the University of Utah, throws in the statistics: “A new chemical substance is discovered every nine seconds during the workday. Chemists discovered the eighteenth millionth chemical substance known to science on June 15, 1998. Many thousands more have been developed since then.” Wrap your brain around that figure for a moment. It looks like this: 18,000,000.

Healthy HomeTheir book is an excellent, comprehensive resource to learn how, exactly, we go about protecting ourselves from all the toxins. Following are just 20 of the simple solutions they pepper throughout the book.
  1. Cut down on the wrinkle-free materials. Five minutes of ironing will spare you from a lifetime of PFC exposure.
  2. Make certain your body is wrapped in safe, natural material for at least a third of the day by purchasing pajamas and bedding made from organic cotton.
  3. Train and trust your nose. Of all our senses, smell makes the most direct connection between the outside world and your brain.
  4. Use one-half cup of white vinegar in place of fabric softener in the washer to reduce static cling and soften clothing.
  5. Unwrap and air out your dry-cleaned garments for at least two days in an exterior area, like a garage—never is a closet or bedroom.
  6. Whenever you launder your sheets, open your windows and leave your mattress exposed in order to allow your bed to off-gas for the day.
  7. Unplug your electronic gadgets and appliances when they aren’t being used.
  8. Buy nightlights, alarm clocks, and other bedroom electronics that are illuminated with red light, which is less disturbing to melatonin production than white or blue light.
  9. Open a window whenever you can to let in some fresh, cleansing air. The air outside is cleaner.
  10. Cut down on toxic preservatives like parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde by first replacing products that sit on your skin all day—like a moisturizers—with more natural, preservative-free alternatives.
  11. Avoid aerosol products that have non-spray alternatives. If you must use aerosols, open a window and run your bathroom fan. Wash products off your face as soon as you get home instead of waiting until bedtime. A few additional chemical-free hours each day could add up to more than six years over a lifetime.
  12. Don’t use antiperspirant during cooler months or on weekends when it doesn’t matter if you sweat a little.
  13. If you’ve been exposed to mercury, consider taking a supplement containing N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) and alpha lipoic acid to aid in detoxification.
  14. Give your immune system a boost with the beneficial bacteria found on a probiotic supplement. Just be sure to look in your pharmacy or grocery store for a product that contains “live and active” cultures.
  15. Avoid buying products that contain triclosan and its chemical cousin, triclocarban. Simply wash your hands with regular soap and water to get rid of germs.
  16. Start with good antioxidant protection, supplemental B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, and lots of CoQ10. Also, try one or more of the foods that have been shown to lower cholesterol, such as steel cut oatmeal.
  17. Start each day with an alkalizing glass of lemon water by squeezing a fresh lemon (no sugar) into purified water. Make sure you include the pulp.
  18. Trade in your table salt for natural sea salt, which contains a mixture of alkaline complexes. And use pepper or other spices to liven your meals.
  19. Maintain a good distance—at least ten feet in front or five feet to the side—between yourself and the microwave when it’s on.
  20. If you must use a PTFE-lined pan, keep your stove’s burner on medium or lower. Also, never preheat an empty pan.
  21. If you plastic wrap, ensure it’s LDPE-based plastic, and regardless of what type it is, never use it in the microwave.
  22. Purchase reusable grocery bags made of natural materials such as cotton and use them as often as you can.
  23. Use a pitcher with an activated carbon filter to reduce contaminants in your water. Although it won’t filter out all pollutants, it’s a good start at a low cost.
  24. If you are cleaning with products that you wouldn’t eat, wear gloves!
  25. Instead of using an aerosol freshening spray, mist your room with real citrus scent,. Simply pour a few drops of orange, lemon, or lime essential oil into a spray bottle of water.
  26. Buy the best vacuum you can afford. Optimally, get one with a HEPA “completely sealed” system.
  27. Use a regular, corded telephone when at home or at work. Cutting even 20 percent of your daily RF exposure is a step in the right direction.
  28. If you have Ethernet ports in convenient areas, you can access the Internet using good, old-fashioned wiring.
  29. Don’t set your car’s air conditioner or heater to recirculated air. Selecting the outside air option on your dashboard will reduce the number of pollutants you’re circulating inside the car.
  30. Take a daily vitamin D supplement with at least 2,000 IUs (International Units) during the winter or year-round if you can’t get out into the sun each day.
  31. Plant a large, diverse range of plants in your yard—native species are best. The more the merrier and healthier.

One Way To Free Up 15 Hours Per Month

One Way To Free Up 15 Hours Per Month

by Paul Castain

A few months back, I was reading a really cool book called:  Mojo: How to Get It, How to Keep It, How to Get It Back if You Lose It by Marshall Goldsmith. 

The author references an interesting study conducted by DDI where they found that the average American spends 15 hours per month criticizing or complaining about their boss.

Marshall goes on to put this brilliantly into perspective by stating;  “That 15 hours is more time than Americans devote to watching Baseball which suggests that our real national pastime is bashing the boss!”

The obvious reaction to this if you are indeed part of the “15 hour gang” is to do something about it and recognize that it might be chewing up more hours of your life that it’s worth.

But what if you and the boss are cool?

I think it would be interesting to take a good, hard look at your life to see if you could identify another area where you spend a lot of unnecessary mental energy.

Perhaps there are other things you continually complain about or criticize?

How about worry?

How about negativity in general?


You know, there’s a funny thing about goals and “To Do” lists . . .

They rarely contain action items to help us find peace, make peace or otherwise take the proverbial chill.
I always knew it took a lot of energy to be pissy, but to see it in terms of how much time we lose on a monthly basis . . .

Well that’s just an opportunity to do something far more productive.

The Healthy Home - Book Code Registration

The Healthy Home - Book Code Registration


Each copy of The Healthy Home comes with a unique book code. These codes are your gateway to linking the books you give to prospects back to you.

Register your book codes

What are Book Codes?
Each copy of The Healthy Home contains a unique book code, located in the back of the book. People who read the book can register their book codes on to access additional content. includes interactive quizzes, ways to score and track your progress as you make positive changes in your own home, and much more. It’s the perfect complement to what is already a powerful educational tool.

These book codes are of even greater value to Associates like you. Your personal book code is your access code to participate in upcoming contests and promotions. More importantly, the codes in additional books you give to prospects serve as a way to track your contacts back to you. If you give a copy of The Healthy Home to a prospect, that lead will not be given to another Associate, even when that prospect registers on

There are two places where each book code can be registered:
  •—Anyone with a book can register their book code here to unlock content and special features.
  • Book Code Registration page on USANAtoday—Associates can register their book codes to participate in contests and promotions, and to track books given to prospects.
Primary Book Code
Purchase a copy of The Healthy Home to keep for yourself. Don’t give it away. The book code located inside the back cover is your primary book code. This is the code you will use to log on to, and is also the code that will allow you to participate in USANA’s upcoming contests and promotions. Go to the Book Code Registration page on USANAtoday and enter this code under “Primary Book Code.”

Example: Jane is a USANA Associate who purchases a copy of The Healthy Home . She goes to the Book Code Registration Page and registers the code in the back of the book as her “Primary Book Code.” She keeps the book for herself, and uses her primary book code to register on and to enroll in USANA’s contests and promotions.

*Each book code may only be used as a primary book code once.

Secondary Book Codes

When you purchase additional copies of The Healthy Home to give to friends and prospects, the first thing you should do is register the code from each book as a secondary book code. This ensures that the contacts generated from each book you distribute will be tracked back to you.

If you purchase 10 extra copies of The Healthy Home (in addition to your own personal copy of the book), then you must register 10 different secondary book codes—one code for each book. If you fail to register a secondary book code, and then give that book to a prospect who registers their personal information on, that contact could be given to another Associate.

To register secondary book codes, go to the Book Code Registration page on USANAtoday and enter the code for each book under “Secondary Book Code.”

Example: Jane purchases additional copies of The Healthy Home to give to her friends. She immediately goes to the Book Code Registration page and enters each book code as a “Secondary Book Code.” Jane gives the books to her friends and tells them to visit for incredible interactive information.

Several of her friends visit and request more information about USANA. The leads generated are then sent to Jane, since the book codes belonging to those contacts are linked back to her.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What happens when a prospect who is given a copy of The Healthy Home enrolls as a new Associate? How can they get a primary book code to participate in contests and promotions?
A. The Associate who originally gave that prospect a copy of The Healthy Home should have registered that book’s code as their secondary book code. When the prospect enrolls as a new Associate, they can then use that same book code as their own primary book code.

Remember, one person’s secondary code can become someone else’s primary code, but one person’s secondary code cannot be another person’s secondary code.

Q. Who gets the leads from unregistered book codes?

A. Leads generated from books that are not registered as another Associate’s secondary book codes are considered “unregistered” and will be assigned to members of the Founder’s Club.
