Feb. 25, 2009 - PRLog -- USANA Health Sciences has been named the 2009 Editor’s Choice in the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements, Consumer Edition for Australia and New Zealand, announced Lyle MacWilliam, president and CEO of Canada’s NutriSearch Corporation. NutriSearch publishes a series of guides examining the science of nutrition and comparing available multiple vitamin and mineral products to an independent standard.

“USANA’s Essentials and HealthPak 100 formulations for Australia and New Zealand were the only products in their respective categories to earn a full five-star rating in our latest review,” said MacWilliam. “Combined with USANA’s voluntary commitment to the highest standards and demonstrated belief in being a good corporate citizen, we really had no trouble choosing this company as our 2009 Editor’s Choice.”
In ranking nutritionals, NutriSearch examines the label claims of multiple vitamin and mineral products available to consumers in regional marketplaces, using an independent Blended Standard developed from the recommendations for optimal daily intake by 12 independent authorities on nutrition. The Blended Standard is used as the baseline for comparison using 18 rating criteria, including Completeness, Potency, Bioavailability of Minerals, Bone Health, Heart Health, and Potential Toxicities.

The resulting scores are grouped and ranked using a five-star rating. Products earning a five-star score are eligible to apply for a Bronze, Silver, or Gold NutriSearch Medal of Achievement,™ based on their level of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and an independent laboratory test to prove that what is on the label is in the bottle.

“USANA products were head and shoulders above the field,” said MacWilliam, with USANA’s Essentials and HealthPak 100 earning the only five-star rating among products sold in Australia and New Zealand for Single and Combination products, respectively.

Both products were awarded the NutriSearch GOLD Medal of Achievement™ based on their high rating and on the NSF certification of USANA’s manufacturing facility. NSF is a US-based standards organization that audits and certifies manufacturing facilities for compliance with pharmaceutical-model GMP and evaluates finished products to ensure compliance with label claim.

The Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements, Consumer Edition for Australia and New Zealand is available for purchase from ProTools Australia or from
