Details

Throughout life, bones are in a constant state of reformation as calcium is continually removed from and re-deposited in the bones. Adequate levels of calcium are needed every day to ensure that bone mineral density is maintained. If people do not get enough calcium from their diets, the body will take it from bone structure, which results in a net loss of bone calcium.

Calcium Chewable are more than calcium supplements. They are carefully formulated, clinically proven bone-building formulas. Both contain calcium citrate and carbonate, magnesium, vitamin D, and silicon to optimize bone mineralization and to ensure proper calcium use.*

Calcium and Your Health
Deficiencies of calcium, magnesium, boron, and vitamin D can contribute to the development of osteoporosis, thinning of the bones that makes them prone to fracture. Although signs of osteoporosis usually don’t occur until the later years of life, getting the proper amount of calcium in our diet when we’re young helps build strong bones and reduces the risk of osteoporosis in the future, as long as dietary intake continues to be adequate. Adolescents who make even a five percent gain in bone mass in their teens may reduce the risk of osteoporosis by 40 percent.

In addition to maintaining healthy bones, calcium is critical to normal nerve conduction, muscle contraction, blood clotting (provided it is normal to begin with), cell division, and electrical conduction in the heart. It is also essential for producing and activating enzymes and hormones that regulate digestion, energy, and fat metabolism.*

Magnesium and Vitamin D
Magnesium is an essential mineral that accounts for about 0.05 percent of the body’s total weight. Along with calcium, it is an important component of strong, healthy bones. Vitamin D enhances calcium absorption in the small intestine and calcium utilization in bone formation. Vitamin D also influences the utilization of phosphorus, another mineral that is important for strong bones.*

Silicon
Silicon gives stability to all the connective tissues of the body and is essential for proper calcium utilization. Silicon is key to the calcium mineralization of the bone matrix.*

Why Active Calcium™ Chewable?
USANA’s Active Calcium Chewable is enhanced with boron and vitamin K. Boron reduces calcium excretion and increases deposition of calcium in the bone. Vitamin K influences the level of osteocalcin in the bone-forming cells and thus the rate of mineralization of bone.*
Q: What’s the difference between MySmart™Shakes and Nutrimeal™?
A: MySmartShakes are the cleaner, simpler products a growing segment of the population are clamoring for. They don’t have any sugar and are packed with six grams of fat—mainly from coconut oil—to provide the beneficial balance of macronutrients to combat today’s carbohydrate-heavy diets. MySmartShakes also give you the ability to personalize your shake. You’ll have a variety of flavors and proteins to choose from, instead of being stuck with only a few options.

Q: What do the numbers on my shake bags mean?
A: Each part of the MySmartFoods line is numbered to guide you through the process. So making your perfectly personalized MySmartShake is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Choose your protein base—plant, soy, or whey
2. Choose your USANA MySmart™ Flavor Optimizer—dark chocolate, cappuccino, peach mango, banana, orange cream, or stick with the mild vanilla flavor of the base
3. Add in a booster, like USANA MySmart™Shake Protein Plus

Q: Will USANA be adding more flavors in the future?
A: Yes. Over the next few years, we plan to roll out more flavors. Keep checking on The Hub for more exciting MySmartFoods products.

Q: How will these new products affect the RESET™ Kit?
A: We’re changing the RESET Kit to MySmart™Start, and it will feature the MySmartFoods line. This means you’ll experience more personalization with a program that will help you start living a healthier lifestyle.

Q: Are MySmartFoods low glycemic?
A: We can’t talk about MySmartFoods and the glycemic index, but they do have a low-glycemic impact on your body. Here’s why:

There simply isn’t enough sugar to determine a glycemic-index score experimentally. In other words, they are naturally low glycemic in the same way that nuts or fish are. They contain too few carbohydrates to be tested, and their influence on blood glucose would be insignificant. So, while we can’t measure the glycemic index, of course they will help support your low-glycemic diet.

Q What went into the development of these new products?
A: We recognized a desire among consumers for simple, pure products. They want ingredients they can pronounce and easily understand. That means cleaner labels and ingredients that are closer to nature. One thing I was taught was to simply look at the length of an ingredient deck—almost always, shorter is better.

This was also an opportunity to add in more beneficial fats—mainly from coconut oil—to provide a better balance of macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein, and fats. For a long time, the story was that fats were bad. When you dig into the scientific literature, that’s just not the case.

Q: So what’s going on with the saturated fat in the products? A: Fats are a vital nutrient, especially for our cells. And the type of fats found in coconut oil—which is what we use in these products—has quite a few health benefits. It’s been shown to support healthy metabolism, and contribute to satiety. There’s also evidence coconut oil supports healthy triglyceride levels and maintains good cholesterol levels already in the normal range.*

Q: How will the shakes and bars benefit my overall diet?
A: That’s a great question. We are very good at talking about “essential” micronutrients—the vitamins and minerals that are essential to sustain life. However, we often forget there are “essential” macronutrients as well. MySmartFoods offer both essential and beneficial macronutrients designed to help bring our overall diet back into balance.

Around the world, we are consuming more calories coming mostly from refined sugars, and more specifically, from snacking. The primary goal of these new products is to help restore balance in our diet, and combine them with the USANA® Essentials™ to provide the essential macro- and micro-nutrition our bodies need to thrive.

Q: Will the products make me feel full longer?
A: Besides fat, it is well known and scientifically documented that increased amounts of fiber and protein will also help increase the overall sense of satiety and boost your metabolism. Just two of the many health benefits these macronutrients provide.
