Print or Digital—That Is the Question - USANA



Yeah, we’ve all heard it. People say print is dying—if it isn’t dead already—and that digital is the newest, best-est, and brightest tool for information distribution. But if you’re using only your smartphone or tablet for business-building efforts, you might be selling yourself short.

There are merits to presenting on your smartphone and tablet, we’re not trying to say otherwise. But there are things you just can’t do with the digital medium that you can with print. In fact, research has shown that a multi-channel—or supplemented—approach works best.

Here are seven reasons print is still an awesome prospecting tool (even though we’re all addicted to our smartphones).

Branding 
Printed materials are a great way to solidify USANA’s brand awareness and identity. When used in concert with digital assets, they can reaffirm consistency across multiple topics by using similar fonts, colors, and types of images.

Exposure
Printed materials can boost exposure and create a lasting impact because potential teammates and customers can interact with print at a time that suits them. Additionally, they can be passed on to someone else who may be interested.

Credibility 
When used in concert with a digital presentation, print offers credibility and legitimacy. Printed materials reinforce an image and mindset of professionalism and trustworthiness. And it’s that brand trust that can help lead to a solid customer base.

Recall
Oversaturation of digital advertisements can cause something known in marketing circles as “ad blindness,” which means after a while people just ignore digital ads (think banners on websites). It’s been shown that, while digital may promote ease in presenting, readers of printed materials have better long-term recall. 

Preference
Believe it or not, many people still prefer to read on paper.

Tangibility 
Printed materials engage your senses in a way digital can’t. You can feel a book, flyer, or brochure. You can smell the paper, the ink, and even a glossy print. Tangible and tactile are memorable.

Built-in Value
Because printed materials present a higher perceived value, as they build consistent branding exposure and credibility, they become a great tool for follow-up opportunities. As people spend more time reading and digesting these materials, they may develop questions about USANA and the products, which can prompt further, deeper discussions.

Believe us, this is absolutely not an exhaustive list. We could have gone on and on, but seven is a pretty good number to show that a supplemented approach is best. You, after all, know better than most the power of supplementation. And that doesn’t just mean health.

Try supplementing your digital business-building activities with some printed sales tools, like the USANA InCelligence Technology™ brochure. Order three 10-packs of this brochure—available in English, Spanish, Chinese, and French—by searching for item #504 in shop on The Hub, and set a goal to share a brochure every day for 30 days.

COQ10 SUPPLEMENTATION MAY IMPROVE GLYCEMIC CONTROL



Previous research has demonstrated that oxidative stress and impaired antioxidant defense contribute to pathogenesis and progression of type 2 diabetes. It has also been shown that diabetic patients typically have reduced coenzyme Q10 levels.

In a recent study published in in the journal Minerva Gastroenterolica e Dietolgica, researchers compared the effect of coenzyme Q10 versus placebo on glycemic control and lipid profile in type 2 diabetic patients.

The study included 64 adults between the ages of 20 and 60 who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Participants received either 200 mg of CoEnzyme Q10 or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. Blood samples were collected at the beginning and the end of the trial and were analyzed for fasting glucose, hemoglobin A1C, and lipids.

No significant changes in measurements were seen in the placebo group, but serum hemoglobin A1C (a measure of long-term glucose control), total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol were reduced in the group taking the CoEnzyme Q10. No significant difference in fasting glucose, triglycerides or HDL cholesterol were seen in either group.

The blood glucose fluctuations that occur in diabetics increase potential free radical damage, which in turn may worsen diabetic complications. Since diabetics are typically low in CoEnzyme Q10 levels, the research suggests that supplementation may help restore normal antioxidant defenses and protect pancreatic beta cells from excessive oxidative damage.

Although more research is needed to confirm these results, this study suggests that 12 weeks of CoEnzyme Q10 supplementation may improve glycemic control, total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol in adult type 2 diabetics.

USANA Unveils New, Comprehensive Bone-Health Supplement

News Release



Combines magnesium, calcium and vitamin D for full body support

SALT LAKE CITY, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA (NYSE: USNA) remains at the forefront of health and nutrition, creating supplements to improve the health and wellness of its customers. Its newest product — MagneCal D™ — is an all-encompassing bone-health supplement that combines optimal amounts of magnesium, calcium and vitamin D to help individuals maintain a strong, healthy body.*

"We found people were consuming plenty of calcium, but were getting less than the recommended amounts of magnesium and vitamin D. This gave us the unique opportunity to formulate a supplement to help balance out the body's levels," says USANA's chief scientific officer, Dr. Robert Sinnott. "Through the direction of USANA's founder Dr. Myron Wentz, we calculated the perfect ratio of calcium to magnesium that you'll find in the new MagneCal D supplement."

USANA's MagneCal D supplement contains a healthy 1:1 ratio of magnesium and calcium as well as advanced levels of vitamin D. MagneCal D helps restore a better balance of these nutrients in the body and supports your health better than products with low to no magnesium or vitamin D.* 

MagneCal D was designed to work seamlessly as a core optimizer for USANA's flagship triple-action cellular nutrition system — CellSentials™.

"We typically do not get enough magnesium in our diets alone, which creates an unbalanced ratio of calcium to magnesium in our bodies," says USANA's executive director of global research and development, Dr. John Cuomo. "We're excited to give consumers a healthy combination of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D to not only maintain strong, healthy bones and teeth, but also support cardiovascular and metabolic health."*

Direct Selling: Making Dreams Come True


Do you dream of owning your own business? Working for yourself…working from home…being your own boss…determining your own hours… It sounds great. But the costs and work required to start up a new business can be staggering. Even established business owners find themselves chained to high overhead costs while waiting for clients to come to them. 

Fortunately, there is a better option. Many have turned to direct selling to make their business dreams come true. Direct selling is the distribution method employed by USANA Health Sciences, and other network marketing companies, where products are sold person-to-person, away from a fixed retail location.

Direct Selling with USANA

  • Make a difference—Like working with people? Help improve the quality of people’s lives.
  • Be part of a team—Work together toward a common vision and a common goal. Meet new, lifelong friends.
  • Be your own boss—Flexible and self-directed workweek. You set your hours. You control your success.
  • Work at home—No commute or rush hour traffic. Live and work wherever you want; your business moves with you. Spend more time with your family.
  • Great income potential—You are paid what you're worth. You decide how much you earn.
  • Immediate income—Earnings can come your first week with a realistic opportunity to earn an above-average income every week.
  • Lasting income—You can build a successful income-generating business that can last a lifetime.
  • Available for everyone—No previous experience necessary. Training is provided, allowing you to earn as you learn, regardless of age, sex, background, or education.
  • Low start-up costs—No franchise fees or royalties. Minimal overhead. No need to rent an office or buy expensive equipment.
  • No employees—No employee-related hassles or paperwork. You choose who you want to work with.
  • Significant potential tax benefits—Legally save thousands of dollars with home-based business deductions*.
  • Freedom—Your life is on your schedule and based on your priorities. Work when and how much you want, part time or full time.
