SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Global health and wellness giant USANA Health Sciences has once again been recognized with a seal of approval by third-party assessor ConsumerLab.com — this time for their omega-3 supplement BiOmega. This marks the 12th time a USANA product has been given the seal of approval by ConsumerLab.com since 2015. USANA's BiOmega is an ultra-pure fish-oil supplement that supports cardiovascular, immune and joint health.
"Having the highest quality products on the market is priority number one for us as a company and receiving third-party validation is the best way to prove that," says Dan Macuga, USANA's chief communications officer. "Our research and development and manufacturing teams work around the clock to make sure we are putting out products free of impurities and contain only the ingredients on the label."
ConsumerLab.com is an independent tester of the quality, purity and label accuracy of health and wellness products, putting each item through rigorous testing. To be awarded a seal of approval from ConsumerLab.com, USANA's BiOmega supplement had to contain 100 percent of the claimed amount of EPA, DHA and omega-3s used to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, and to meet quality levels set for lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury.
"Whenever we receive third-party recognition for the quality of our products, it shows the hard work and effort we all put in to making these supplements," says USANA's executive director of global research and development, Dr. John Cuomo. "BiOmega is USANA's omega-3 fish-oil supplement that contains advanced levels of EPA and DHA, two long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. These ingredients are vital in supporting your memory, learning, cardiovascular system and overall health."
Along with BiOmega, several other USANA supplements have been recently certified by ConsumerLab.com, including Procosa®, Visionex®, CoQuinone® 30, Active Calcium, Vitamin D, Pure Rest™, USANA® Probiotic, USANA® Essentials™, Usanimals, BabyCare Prenatal Essentials and Body Rox.
