Details

As we age, there is a general decline in visual acuity. One of the most important reasons for the loss of visual acuity over time is the damage caused by environmental factors. The eyes are not sequestered inside the body as the heart or kidneys are. Except when we are asleep, our eyes are constantly exposed to environmental factors such as air pollution, dryness, and oxidative damage from sunlight.

The comprehensive formulation of Visionex supplement is designed to support long-term eye health, especially when combined with preventive measures against exposure of the eyes to harmful environmental influences.*

Natural Maintenance
What we actually see with the eye are the patterns of light that strike the retina, a light-sensitive layer of cells at the back of the eye. In the center of the retina is the macula, where the light rays are most highly focused and visual acuity is highest. The macula is especially vulnerable to oxidative damage because it has a high metabolic rate and because the light focused on it enhances the production of free radicals.

The central portion of the macula contains a yellow pigment called the macular pigment, which helps protect the sensitive receptors in the macula particularly from the potentially harmful effects of short-wavelength light. Our eyes receive support from the antioxidant carotenoids that exist in the macular pigment—lutein and zeaxanthin.*

Lutein
While the roles lutein and zeaxanthin play in the physiology of the eye are not completely known, the links between lutein and eye health are so strong that several national and regional health organizations have recommended the increase of dietary lutein. Lutein is believed to function in two ways: first as a filter of high-energy blue light and second as an antioxidant that quenches light-induced free radicals and reactive oxygen species.*

Zeaxanthin
Zeaxanthin, a yellow carotenoid, is an isomer of lutein. In the eye, lutein is predominant in the periphery of the retina while the concentration of zeaxanthin is greatest in the very center. This is where conditions most favor the formation of free radicals.

Preserve Visual Function
Macular pigment optical density (MPOD) levels have been linked to eye health. Daily lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation has been shown to significantly increase MPOD to help preserve visual function. Use of these important carotenoids improves visual performance in glare (better tolerance to bright light and quicker recovery from photostress), visual acuity in low-light conditions, and most measures of quality of vision (contrast sensitivity), for most subjects.*

Why Visionex®?
In addition to lutein and zeaxanthin, the Visionex formulation contains these three important nutritional aids to eye health: bilberry extract, vitamin C, and zinc.

The bilberry fruit is rich in antioxidant anthocyanosides and has been shown to help retain healthy capillaries, including those in the eye.*

Vitamin C provides additional antioxidant protection, especially to the retina, where the concentration of vitamin C is significantly higher than that found in the blood.*

Zinc appears to provide an additive effect to antioxidants in promoting good visual acuity.*
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.
