USANA was founded with a mission to manufacture the highest-quality products without compromise—products people can trust. Because poor manufacturing can destroy great science, USANA is one of the few companies to manufacture most of its products in its own state-of-the-art facility. To ensure that the formulas developed in USANA's laboratories are produced consistently, the same process is followed each time manufacturing begins.
USANA’s founder, Myron Wentz, Ph.D., created this science-based company because he had a vision of a world free from pain and suffering. A world free from disease.
That’s why our commitment to quality goes beyond the formulas we create.
We manufacture more than 90 percent of our products in our own manufacturing facilities so we can control the entire process, from raw ingredient to finished supplement. John Cuomo, Ph.D., USANA’s executive director of product development and technology, explains, “The main reason to manufacture our products in-house is so we can control the process at every step. This is our house. This is our business. And nobody else is going to take care of it if we don’t.”
In addition to our own high standards of manufacturing, a variety of government agencies conduct periodic inspections of our facilities, requiring strict control of procedures and documentation. Our Salt Lake City, Utah, facility is certified to be in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirements set forth in NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2012, Dietary Supplements by NSF International, and it also became a registered U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Drug Establishment in 2011.
As such, all components of the manufacturing process are evaluated and inspected by the same FDA standards as are used for pharmaceutical products.
Additionally, in several countries around the world, supplements are more highly regulated than in the United States. In Australia, for example, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) mandates that manufacturers follow a set of GMP identical to pharmaceutical GMP in the United States. As an Australian supplier, USANA is regularly inspected and audited by the TGA to ensure that their GMP standards are met.
Certified by NSF International
USANA has voluntarily obtained additional third-party verification of GMP status. Since 2006, USANA’s Salt Lake City, Utah, manufacturing facility has been certified to be in compliance with NSF/ANSI Dietary Supplement GMP requirements set forth by NSF International. According to NSF, "GMP registration reflects [a] continued commitment to ensuring quality and satisfaction and gives companies confidence that their organization operates in conformance to established GMP."
NSF is an independent, not-for-profit organization that helps protect consumers by certifying products and writing standards for food, water, and consumer goods.
Guarantee the potency of every nutritional product we sell.
USANA is committed to the highest standards of product design and manufacturing, and we guarantee the potency of every nutritional product we sell.
Our company follows internationally accepted Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) set out for the pharmaceutical industry. As such, we track every detail of product manufacture from start to finish—from the verification of raw materials to final testing of finished products. Standard tests include those for potency, purity, disintegration, weight, hardness, thickness, and stability.
For these reasons and more, you can be confident in the potency and overall quality of USANA products. We truly provide Nutritionals You Can Trust.
Each dietary supplement produced by USANA carries a Potency Guarantee, which ensures that what is stated on the label is actually contained in the product.
Meet trusted United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards.
The Food and Drug Administration requires that dietary supplement manufacturers follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for dietary supplements (21 CFR, part 111). USANA, however, voluntarily follows the more stringent GMP for pharmaceuticals as the basis for its quality assurance program, which regulates virtually every aspect of manufacturing, including facility design and maintenance, raw material specification and control, supplier validation, product design and testing, and more. This voluntary adherence to GMP for pharmaceuticals means that USANA treats nutritional supplements with the same care that goes into the manufacturing of over-the-counter products.
In addition, USANA has acquired Drug Establishment Registration with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This means USANA operates an FDA-registered facility, following the FDA’s highest possible standard for manufacturers.
Also, where applicable, USANA voluntarily tests its supplements to make sure they meet trusted United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards and specifications for potency, uniformity, and disintegration.
Meet the GMP standards of Australia.
In several countries around the world, supplements are more highly regulated than in the United States. In Australia, for example, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) mandates that manufacturers follow a set of GMP identical to pharmaceutical GMP in the United States. As an Australian supplier, USANA is regularly inspected and audited by the TGA to ensure that their GMP standards are met.
