Your body actually needs healthy bacteria to keep your digestive system functioning properly. Find out what makes USANA Probiotic the best source of friendly bacteria.



Everything you ingest must go through your digestive system, which, in turn, provides all the micro- and macronutrients your body’s cells need to function properly. Therefore, maintaining your digestive health is crucial for maintaining your overall health. Usana Probiotic food supplement supports digestive health with a unique blend of probiotics that brings balance to your belly.*

Importance of Digestive Health
If the body is deficient in any essential nutrients, immune function can be compromised and the potential for developing a number of health concerns is significantly higher. Because the digestive system is responsible for breaking down and absorbing the vitamins and minerals from food and nutritional supplements, maintaining digestive health is an important factor in optimizing nutrient intake and defending against deficiency-related illness.*

Similarly, if the body is unable to effectively eliminate waste, the effects can range from embarrassing and unpleasant to dangerous and extremely painful. Not only does a healthy digestive system greatly reduce the likelihood of physical discomfort from gas, constipation, bloating, or occasional diarrhea, it also facilitates consistent waste elimination from the body through the regular passing of stool and normalization of stool consistency.*

To keep everything working smoothly, it is vital that you drink plenty of water; exercise; and consume a proper diet with plenty of fiber from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. In addition to eating a healthful diet, using probiotics can help create an ideal environment for healthy digestion.

Probiotics Promote Balance
Your gut is host to both beneficial and potentially harmful bacteria. When balanced properly, these bacteria, also known as microflora, aid healthy digestion. Age, stress, illness, antibiotics and/or certain medicines, poor diet and hydration, lack of rest, and harmful environmental conditions, may endanger the fine balance of the intestinal flora. This imbalance can result in the reduction of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which can lead to digestive concerns that may not only be physically uncomfortable but also possibly harmful to your health.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations defines probiotics as “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” Probiotic dietary supplements replenish beneficial microflora, which can help restore a proper microbial equilibrium in the gut and aid good digestion.* Usana Probiotic features a unique 50/50 mixture of Bifidobacterium, BB-12® and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, LGG®—two strains of probiotic bacteria that have been clinically proven to promote a natural balance of beneficial microflora in the gut.

Immune Function
Recent research suggests that not only do probiotics stimulate the digestive system, they may also play a role in sustaining healthy immune function. Friendly bacteria are vital to the proper development of the immune system, and more immune cells are concentrated in the gut than in any other region of the body. The intestinal tract can encourage healthy bacterial growth and promote proper nutrient absorption.*

Why USANA® Probiotic?
The beneficial effects of one strain of probiotics do not necessarily hold true for others, or even for different varieties of the same species or strain. Sufficient quantity of high-quality bacteria strains must survive stomach enzymes and enter the intestinal tract alive to be effective. Verified to supply 12 billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of viable bacteria—a level shown to be effective in clinical studies—Usana Probiotic contains Bifidobacterium, BB-12® and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, LGG®, the strains best documented to survive transit through the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach to colonize the intestines.

Usana Probiotic is easy to use. Simply take Usana Probiotic alone or add one serving (one stick pack) of the mildly sweet, powdered formulation to cold beverages or foods every one or two days for proven digestive health results.*

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.
