What You Should Know
Every dieter wants to feel like they are getting all the vitamins and minerals they need while reducing caloric intake to lose weight. Sometimes, the most important vitamins and minerals are missed, so most experts suggest taking a daily multi-vitamin. Some vitamins are water-soluble; leaving the body rather quickly after they are taken. In this case, multiple doses per day are crucial for continuing support. Usana Health Pak is an AM/PM multi-vitamin packaged in individual packets. One packet is taken in the morning and another in the evening. The packets offer more than a traditional multi-vitamin and thus the price is much higher than an over the counter vitamin. Many dieters will find the price for Usana Health Pak far too expensive.

The product description states there are AM/PM packs of the Usana Health Pak vitamins. The formulas for AM and PM contain the same ingredients, as far as we can tell from the product description and ingredient list. The multi-vitamin mega-supplement is simply packed in two doses per day.
Taking a multi-vitamin more than once a day increases the availability of certain vitamins. B vitamins, for instance, last only a few hours in the body. When B vitamins are taken twice a day, the body has multiple chances to absorb the vitamins as needed.
The antioxidant profile is strong. Antioxidants support healthy cellular function and reproduction by fighting free radical damage. Green tea, a powerful weight loss supplement, is included in decaffeinated form. Decaffeinated green tea contains EGCG. EGCG is proven to increase metabolism, even when the green tea contains no caffeine.

Usana Health Pak is a high-end multi-vitamin supplement packaged to be taken twice a day. Providing a constant source of vitamins is a healthy choice, especially for the dieter following a reduced calorie diet, but these vitamins will not increase metabolism or fat burn. There are no stimulants in the formula, so dieters can easily stack the multi-vitamin with a fat burner.
