Why You Need USANA Cellsentials as Part Of Your Wellness Regime.


Why You Need To Add This Multi-Vitamin Powerhouse into Your Wellness Regime.

On the heels of the USANA Health Sciences international convention it’s no surprise that the USANA Cellsentials is still a leading nutritional supplement.

Nutritional Science can somewhat challening to understand so breaking information down into bite-sized chunks can be useful.

You see, change is always difficult, but science is not static, it’s evolving as fast as AI.

So, USANA’s commitment to remain a cutting edge, science-based company requires us to make adjustments and improvements as new and exciting nutrition science research emerges.

Looking to Buy USANA Cellsentials?

Lets Look At The Foundation of the Cellsentials.

USANA already had the number one vitamin/mineral/antioxidant supplement on the market called the USANA Essentials and as time goes by, science improves and the formulations behind the products have enhanced.

The original USANA Essential Benefits were well recognised and the USANA Science team have made very significant changes and upgrades to make it even better.

But first off.

What is the primary feature behind the science of the Cellsentials?

It’s the Incelligence Technology.

Not only found in this multi-vitamin, but some of the core products we’ll list at the bottom of this information.

What is USANA Incelligence Technology?

Imagine your cells as tiny power plants. They need constant maintenance to function optimally, just like a car engine runs smoother with regular oil changes and servicing.

Well it’s not dissimilar to your body – we need some, lets say ‘cellular housekeeping‘ which is a fancy term for a process called autophagy, comes in.

During autophagy, your cells basically break down and recycle old, damaged proteins to free up space and resources for new, healthy ones [1].

Now, there’s a complex signaling pathway within your cells called mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) – stay with me here, it gets easier to understand – but this pathway acts like a dimmer switch, controlling the rate of autophagy.

When nutrients are scarce, like during calorie restriction, or burger-night from Monday to Sunday, mTOR turns down, allowing autophagy to ramp up and clean house [2].

This process, called mitophagy, specifically targets damaged mitochondria, the power generators within your cells, for recycling [3].

One of the key takeaways with the Cellsentials is the latest research in the ingredients, the mixture of the ingredients have been independently tested and proven to help reduce telemore shortening.

Telemores are tiny caps at the end of our chromesomes, a little like the plastic tips at the end of our shoelaces and they are responsible for a very important part of cell division.

Telomeres and Aging: Telomere shortening is considered a hallmark of aging.

As we age, our telomeres naturally become shorter due to repeated cell division. However, lifestyle factors like chronic stress, poor diet, and lack of exercise can accelerate this shortening process.

The Science of Telomere Length: Researchers are actively investigating the link between telomere length and various age-related health conditions.

While the picture isn’t entirely clear yet, shorter telomeres have been associated with an increased risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and some cancers [4, 5].

This is why it’s critical to form healthy habits and not just around eating, but our overall lifestyle.

So, what’s the easy part?

We just need to take 2 x multiminerals in the morning and 2 x AntiOxidants with food, both morning and night.

Simple right! 

The USANA CellSentials are USANA’s flagship nutritional supplement: a combination of both the Vita-Antioxidant and Core Minerals products.

Formulated to not only prevent deficiency diseases, the USANA CellSentials provide advanced levels of micro-nutrients to retain optimal health and energy levels. The USANA CellSentials are a four-part formula that contains:

  • Essential vitamins and minerals (just read the Reviews of USANA to fully understand the effects of the body)
  • Antioxidants
  • Other beneficial building blocks and co-factors for the body
  • A unique CellSentials InCelligence complex (made with USANA® InCelligence™ Technology that helps activate the body’s own natural defense and health mechanisms.

USANA Key Differences

Nearly two-thirds of the ingredients in the USANA CellSentials have had some modification to either the dose or form compared to what was used in the USANA Essentials.

The USANA Essentials have a lot of benefits to the body however the new Cellsentials offer a lot more benefits and these changes may vary by market, but some of the key differences are:

Vitamin A

The USANA Essentials provided beta-carotene as the only source of Vitamin A activity. The USANA CellSentials deliver a combination of beta-carotene, retinyl acetate, and mixed carotenoids to provide vitamin A activity.

Recent research has indicated that some individuals have a limited ability to convert beta-carotene to Vitamin A.

Excess body weight can also reduce the efficiency of conversion, and there are genetic polymorphisms that decrease the ability to convert beta-carotene to vitamin A.

The combination of multiple sources of vitamin A activity ensures that the CellSentials provide a more efficacious dose of vitamin A to everyone, regardless of genetic differences.

USANA Vitamin E

The Essentials provided vitamin E primarily as d-alpha tocopherol. The CellSentials provide a more balanced approach to vitamin E activity with a more moderate dose of alpha-tocopherol and a 300% increase in mixed tocopherols (gamma, delta, and beta-tocopherols), all of which supply vitamin E activity.

In addition to their vitamin E activity, mixed tocopherols also serve as antioxidants and have a variety of biological activities that alpha-tocopherol alone does not provide.

The CellSentials have much greater dose of iodine than the Essentials. Iodine is crucial for the production of thyroid hormones. Dietary surveys have shown that many people are becoming increasingly deficient in this important mineral, especially those limiting their salt intake.

Folic Acid

In some markets folic acid was decreased in the CellSentials, in comparison to the Essentials. USANA has always provided an advanced dosage of folic acid to ensure protection against neural tube defects.

However, food fortification of folic acid has increased dietary intakes significantly in some countries. The folic acid dosage was lowered to a significant, but more moderate level to account for the increased dietary intake and to make room for increases in other important nutrients.


The choline content of the CellSentials was more than doubled. Average choline intakes for men, women, older children, and during pregnancy are far below the Adequate Intake established by the Institute of Medicine.

Choline is necessary for neurotransmitter synthesis (acetylcholine), cell-membrane signaling (phospholipids), lipid transport (lipoproteins), and methyl-group metabolism (homocysteine reduction). It is the major dietary source of methyl groups via the synthesis of S-adenosylmethionine.

Vitamin K

The CellSentials have an increased dosage of vitamin K1, and vitamin K2 has been added for the first time. Vitamin K is an essential nutrient required for the normal biosynthesis and activation of several key proteins.

In addition to its role in blood clotting, vitamin K influences the level of osteocalcin in bone-forming cells, and may play a role in preventing postmenopausal osteoporosis.

Vitamin K2 is produced by bacteria, including some found in the human intestinal tract. Recent evidence suggest we may not be producing enough or getting enough in our diets.

Supplementing additional vitamin K2 may provide additional bone and cardiovascular health benefits.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid 

The CellSentials InCelligence complex replaced the former bioflavonoid complex and is a synergistic complex that includes curcumin (as Meriva®† bioavailable curcumin), green tea extract (standardized to EGCG content), quercetin, hesperidin, rutin, and N-acetyl L-cysteine.

It also contains an increased dose of alpha-lipoic acid, and resveratrol was added to the complex for the first time.

Alpha-lipoic acid is a vitamin-like antioxidant that is both fat and water-soluble and has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants back to active states.

USANA Proflavanol C100 – Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a polyphenol found naturally in the skin of grapes, blueberries, raspberries, and mulberries. It is an antioxidant that plays an important role in supporting cardiovascular health, and research shows that it has a positive impact on endogenous antioxidant production and cell signaling pathways.

You can find a potent form of Resveratrol with:

USANA’s Proflavanol C100 Product
USANA’s Proflavanol C200 Product


Balanced and Comprehensive – Some Say Synergistic

The individual components of the InCelligence complex each have unique health benefits.

As a group of synergistic nutrients, these phyto-chemicals can influence endogenous antioxidant production and cell signaling pathways to help promote healthy cell life cycles.

Some of the ingredients in the Vita Antioxidant and Core Minerals were adjusted or reformulated in a way to provide better synergy, stability and compatibility.

For example, the compound N-acetyl L-cysteine was moved from the vitamin/antioxidant tablet to the mineral tablet where it is more stable.

The USANA Essentials – New and Improved

So, the take home message is this: we made major improvements to what were already the best multi-vitamin supplements on the market, and the added benefits of the InCelligence complex puts them even further ahead of the rest.

The CellSentials, with our improved formulation of essential nutrients and our unique InCelligence complex make up the most effective, most complete, flagship nutritional combination of products we have ever provided.
