SALT LAKE CITY, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA (NYSE: USNA) launches a new website today to honor its founder, whose vision has been to rid the world from pain and suffering. Dr. Myron Wentz — visionary, scientist, entrepreneur and philanthropist — has made it his life's mission for people all over the world to live a life full of health and happiness.
"I find it tragic that the vast majority of people leave this earth too soon and spend too many of their years in pain and suffering. In a sense, we are living too short and dying too long," said Wentz. "I believe, with the help of exceptional nutrition, people can live healthier and more rewarding lives."
Since opening its doors, the global nutrition company has changed the lives of millions through its award-winning products, direct sales channels, and charitable arm, the USANA True Health Foundation. The company has achieved an impressive $7.4 billion in global net sales since inception and has paid cumulative incentives of over $3 billion to its independent distributors. The company also recently celebrated its 13th consecutive year of record sales and reported its highest net earnings in its history.
"USANA's immense success lies with this visionary leader, Dr. Myron Wentz," said Chief Communications Officer Dan Macuga. "We look forward to continued success as we carry on this great man's vision of health and wellness to people throughout the world."
Although the company is hugely profitable, it also gives back in monumental ways. In 2012, Wentz started the USANA True Health Foundation to help those who are suffering or in need all around the world. To date, $4.1 million in cash grants have been donated to provide relief.
