USANA a Partner in Important Nutritional Research

My Billion Dollar Charity Run:
"Researchers at the University of Utah, in collaboration with USANA Health Sciences, recently published the results of a study in The Journal of Nutrition* which tested the effectiveness of quercetin supplementation in lowering unhealthy blood pressure levels.

Quercetin is an antioxidant found in many foods including onions, berries, and apples, and it is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke. Supplementation with quercetin has been shown to reduce hypertension in animal models, but until now has never been tested in hypertensive humans. This is the first published study to show that quercetin supplementation can reduce blood pressure in hypertensive adult humans. Additionally, it is important to note that quercetin supplementation did not influence the blood pressure of non-hypertensive individuals."
