SALT LAKE CITY, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA) announced today that one of its top-rated supplements, CoQuinone® 30, has been evaluated and approved by ConsumerLab.com, LLC, a leading provider of independent product test results.
In a recent study, ConsumerLab.com determined that USANA's CoQuinone® 30 was found to contain its labeled amount of CoQ10. This study evaluated coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and ubiquinol products from various nutritional supplement manufacturers to determine whether they in fact contained the amounts of these compounds stated on their labels. The review can be found on the company's website at www.consumerlab.com.
In light of new FDA warnings against potentially unsafe supplements available on the market, studies like this help consumers and healthcare professionals make better decisions and more informed recommendations when it comes to supplements.
"This is the third year in a row that USANA products have received high marks from ConsumerLab.com," says Dan Macuga, USANA Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations. "Previously, we've earned approval for our Chelated Mineral, Mega Antioxidant, and Visionex® supplements. We're proud of how well our products have performed in independent testing from reputable third-party organizations."
"There's a lot of research and development that goes into each of our products," says USANA Executive Director of Product Development, Dr. John Cuomo. "Not only do we use the highest quality ingredients possible, but we take quality control and testing very seriously at USANA."
Recently, USANA was named the #1 Rated Overall Merchant Based on Customer Satisfaction and the #1 Rated Direct Sales Merchant Based on Customer Satisfaction in the 2011 ConsumerLab.com Survey of Vitamin and Supplement Users.
Since 1999, CL has tested more than 2,900 products, 350 different brands and nearly every type of popular supplement in order to help consumers and healthcare professionals identify the best quality health and nutrition products.
