I’m here to cut through the noise and get you the bottom line on Usana Essentials Multivitamin. We’ll turn our attention toward the ingredients, side effects, scientific research and customer service quality. Under our radar will be hundreds of consumer comments and reviews. Then, we’ll refine and summarize to give you the info you need.

Usana Essentials Multivitamin Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Leptigen.

What is Usana Essentials Multivitamin?

Firstly, Usana Essentials Multivitamin is a dietary supplement containing minerals, inositol, choline bitartrate, n-acetyl l-cysteine, alpha lipoic acid, [1] coenzyme Q10, turmeric extract, lutein, lycopene, chromium [2] and B-vitamins, among others. The company recommends you take six capsules per day, which supposedly supports overall health and wellness. Though it will not necessarily help you lose weight, it may support overall nutrition critical to the dieter. The pills are in a blister pack, making it easy to take along anywhere. [3]

The supplement, introduced as a dietary aide around 1992 by Usana Health Sciences, [4] appears to contain natural ingredients, a good start. You can purchase the product on the official website or shop through outside retailers. We like that we found some favorable comments and that the company has been in business for two decades, but read on…

Ineffective – “No Changes?”

The first concern about Usana Essentials Multivitamin ingredients is dieter’s are saying they don’t work. “This product is sold at a higher price than the competition,” said our Research Editor. “The user needs to see some benefit to paying more and, in this case, it doesn’t appear they do.” [5]

“I did not notice any difference from other less expensive multi vitamin brands. I regret buying it. This product is over rated,” said a dieter.

“Didn’t feel any difference from taking them…thought I would have more energy,” reported a customer.

You can’t help but notice that some people were happy with the effects.

One user said, “Always loved USANA vitamins. You can feel the difference.”

Usana Essentials Multivitamin Side Effects – “Aches and Pains”

According to dieter comments, Usana Essentials Multivitamin side effects were unexpected. “After the mid-end of the month of consuming USANA Essentials, my heart palpitates. So I stop taking it,” said a customer. [6]

“I have stomach ache a lot almost every day, bad odor stool…I’m in pain right now,” reported a dieter. [7]

“For some reason these vitamins give me heartburn,” stated a user.

Though there are some negative experiences out there, others saw some positive results.

“I noticed my finger nails/toe nails were growing faster and looked healthy for first time in years,” was one comment.

Another said, “These vitamins give me extra energy and I only take one if each a day.”

We’ve researched and examined countless supplements and in each case we’ve found that something small, like negative reactions, could hurt chances of long-term success. If Usana Essentials Multivitamin does in fact cause side effects, is it worth it?

The Science – “Legit?”

If you visit the official Usana Essentials Multivitamin website, you will notice a wealth of information about research and development, but the company doesn’t provide published studies to support the idea that this formula is different or better than less expensive vitamins. A few of the ingredients, like chromium, can help support weight-loss, but none of the others offer that benefit. At DietSpotlight we look for evidence that a product WILL help you lose more. This one isn’t backed 100% by clinical testing. [8]

The Bottom Line – Does Usana Essentials Multivitamin Work?

Hold on a second, we’re not sure you want to buy this one. We took a closer look at Usana Essentials Multivitamin and here’s what we found. We like that the company has been operating for years and that the supplement uses no synthetics, but we see things we’re not sure about. There is the lack of published clinical research linking the ingredients to weight-loss. We also have concerns with potential side effects and the fact that dieters claim the formula is not effective. [9]

If you want to lose weight, we recommend going with a supplement that’s made with clinically tested ingredients and backed by strong, positive customer testimonials.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The product consists of a proprietary blend of scientifically tested ingredients shown to help boost metabolism and enhance fat loss. We didn’t find much talk about side effects at all, but we did find a large number of dieter comments talking about some truly amazing results. These qualities tick off everything we suggest in a strong weight-loss supplement.

Also, the makers of Leptigen show confidence in the supplement by offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a positive sign. You’ve honestly got nothing to lose but that weight that’s just been sticking around!

Usana Essentials Multivitamin: What You Should Know

Usana Essentials Multivitamin is a supplement designed to be taken every day in place of a multi-vitamin. The ingredient list in the product description leaves off more than 50-percent of the ingredients. The detailed ingredient list includes warnings and considerations when taking the supplement. Considerations include the fact that vitamin and mineral supplements will not improve health unless the dieter is deficient in those vitamins and minerals in the first place. A warning associated with this supplement brought to light the dangers of taking supplements. According to Usana, no more than 150 mcg of selenium should be taken on a daily basis to prevent toxicity. This supplement includes 150 mcg of selenium, what happens if the dieter eats a food that contains selenium?

List of Ingredients

MultiMineral: Calcium as Calcium Citrate Hydrate and Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium as Magnesium Citrate Nonahydrate and Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate, Potassium Iodide, Zinc Citrate Dihydrate, Selenomethionine, Copper Gluconate, Manganese Gluconate, Chromium as Chromium Chloride and Chromium Picolinate and Molybdenum.

Antioxidant: Beta Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Natural Mixed Tocopherols, Vitamin K, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Nicotinamide, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Calcium Pantothenate, Rutin, Quercetin, Citrus Bioflavonoids Extract, Olive Fresh Fruit, Green Tea Dry Leaf, Bilberry Fresh Fruit, Pomegranate Fresh Fruit, Cinnamon, Curcumin, Inositol, Choline Bitartrate, Cysteine Hydrochloride, Bromelains, Alpha-Lipoic-Acid, Ubidecarenone, Lutein, Lycopene and Broccoli.

Usana Essentials Multivitamin: Product Features

A daily multi-vitamin will not directly improve the health of a healthy individual, but it will pick up where diet fails from time to time. If a dieter is trying to eat less and skimps on whole foods once a week, there is no need for strong supplementation. However, if the dieter chooses prepackaged meals every day of the week, there could soon be a problem. Usana Essentials Multivitamin contains all the vitamins the body needs, but we do not suggest taking this supplement. If selenium is toxic at levels more than 150 mcg and this product contains 150 mcg, the dieter could be in danger of reaching toxic levels when diet is taken into consideration. Brazil nuts, liver, fish, sunflower seeds and bran are all great sources of selenium. They are also healthy additions to a weight loss diet.

The Advantages of Usana Essentials Multivitamin

  • Ingredients are listed on the Usana website.
  • Contains all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants the body needs.

The Disadvantages of Usana Essentials Multivitamin

  • Contains a high dose of selenium.
  • The dieter should watch selenium intake if taking this vitamin.
  • Usana Essentials Multivitamin is more expensive than other brands.

Conclusion

We are not willing to risk selenium toxicity for vitamin support. The dieter can pay a fraction of the price for an over the counter vitamin and get just as much support.

Usana Essentials Multivitamin Scientific Abstracts:

Inositol

In half of the subjects who reacted well to the inositol had quickly relapsed after discontinuation of the inositol. None of the participants who responded to the placebo had quickly relapsed following placebo discontinuation. It was suggested that true drug responders to the antidepressant tricyclic had reacted slowly and steadily whilst those who responded to placebo had improved early and abruptly. In a recent study those who responded to inositol and placebo had shown improvements at similar rates. The Hamilton Depression Scale scores following 10 to 12 months had not been substantially different between the participants who had responded to inositol and placebo and those who had not. [1]

Menstrual cycle regularity had been restored in a great amount of patients in the diet + metformin + inositol group (P<0.05). The Ferriman score was substantially more successful by weight-loss (P<0.05). Body mass index, body weight, waist circumference had reduced significantly within all groups without the waist hip rate modification. Weight-loss had relied greatly upon the addition of metformin to the diet. Fat mass was also reduced in the diet + metformin + inositol group as well. There needs to be further investigation in order to confirm metformin and myoinositol’s effects on the improvement of body composition.  [2]

Zinc

In a cross section study, there had been a significant correlation between serum testosterone and cellular zinc concentrations (lymphocyte zinc vs. serum testosterone, r = 0.43, p = 0.006; granulocyte zinc vs. serum testosterone, r = 0.30, p = 0.03). Restriction of dietary zinc in average young men was found to be associated with substantial reduction in serum testosterone concentrations following a 20 week period of zinc restriction (baseline vs. post-zinc restriction mean +/- SD, 39.9 +/- 7.1 vs. 10.6 +/- 3.6 nmol/L, respectively; p = 0.005). Supplementation if zinc in average elderly men for a period of six months had resulted in an elevation of serum testosterone 8.3 +/- 6.3 to 16.0 +/- 4.4 nmol/L (p = 0.02). It was concluded that zinc could assist in the modulation of serum testosterone levels in average men. [3]

N-Acetyl L-Cysteine

N-acetyl-cysteine is a by-product of glutathione, which is widely known to minimize lipid peroxidation of cellular membranes and other issues that are associated with oxidative stress. N-acetyl-cysteine is popular due to its ability to minimize lipid peroxidation of cellular membranes and other areas which effect oxidative stress. [4]

Choline

Sports players were given choline one week prior to a competition. The results had displayed a significant difference in pre and post competition measurements of leptin, urine choline and malondialdehyde, and free plasma choline levels. Body mass had been reduced in post competition as well. Choline may quickly decrease body mass without adverse side effects on biochemical levels or static strength. [5]

Usana Essentials Multivitamin Side Effects:

Any product or supplement has the potential for unwanted side-effects. In the case of Usana Essentials Multivitamin, there have been several reported that should be considered before starting usage.

Heart Palpitations

Heart palpitations are the feelings of rapid, fluttering or pounding heart. Palpitations can feel like your heart has skipped beats or is beating too many times, erratically. Heart palpitations can be felt in the chest, neck or throat. [1] Palpitations may be associated with other problems with heart valves, heart muscles, coronary artery disease or heart failure.

Causes of heart palpitations

There are many causes for heart palpitations ranging from less to very severe. Too much caffeine, alcohol or nutritional supplements can bring about palpitations. Other causes include stress or anxiety. More serious causes are a heart rhythm disorder or electrical problems within the heart itself.

Heartburn

Heartburn is the feeling of burning, warmth or pain that starts just below the sternum and can be felt up towards the throat. Heartburn is sometimes referred to as sour stomach or indigestion and can be extremely uncomfortable. Heartburn and acid reflex are often hard to distinguish. While heartburn is not in any way related to the heart, sometimes heart pain can be wrongly assumed to be heartburn. Heartburn may cause problems with burping, nausea and swallowing. [2]

Causes of heartburn

There are many causes of heartburn including: spicy foods, medicines and supplements, obesity, tight clothing, smoking or chewing tobacco, hernia, and stress. Pregnant women are more prone to heartburn. Heartburn can also result from poor eating habits such as extra large portioning and eating prior to bedtime. Exercise can also trigger heartburn.

Abdominal Pain

Pain in the abdomen, the region below the chest and above the pelvic, is known as abdominal pain. Pain can be sharp or dull, steady or intermittent and can be felt on either or both sides of the abdomen. Abdominal pain is oft referred to as a stomach ache. Abdominal pain that lasts for more than a few days and that is aggravated by movement could be signs of a serious problem.

Causes of abdominal pain

There are many causes of abdominal pain including problems with kidneys, appendix, spleen, intestines, stomach liver, pancreas or esophagus. Less severe causes include food poisoning or adverse reactions to vitamins, supplements or medications.

Usana Essentials Multivitamin was a product from Usana Health. Based on what's listed, it looks like they split the formula up into multiple bottles. These are Core Minerals, Vita-Antioxidant, CellSentials Pak and HealthPak. You can still find the original from retailers like Amazon.

We dug deep into the Usana Essentials Multivitamin ingredients to give you the details you need.

Inositol

Sometimes called vitamin b8 or dambrose, inositol is found in various animals and plants. It’s essentially a vitamin-like substance that can also be created in a laboratory. This component is commonly found in dietary supplements.

What is it Supposed to Do?

Well, inositol is sometimes used to treat insomnia, diabetic nerve pain, infertility, ADHD, high cholesterol levels and depression. Also, it’s found in some diet products, and is said to help with insulin sensitivity.

Clinical Research

There does not appear to be a direct link between inositol and weight-loss. However, according to PubMed.gov, “Inositol 6 g daily was given in a crossover-double-blind manner for five days before the fifth or sixth ECT to a series of twelve patients, without effect. These results suggest that inositol has therapeutic effects in the spectrum of illness responsive to serotonin selective re-uptake inhibitors, including depression, panic and OCD, and is not beneficial in schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s ADDH, autism or ECT-induced cognitive impairment.”[1]

Clinical testing is an important part of the equation when it comes to choosing a diet supplement. You may want to take a look at a product like Leptigen. It contains some ingredients that have been well researched.

Olive Extract

First off, olive extract basically comes from the fruit and seeds of olives, which grow on a tree found in regions like Africa, Argentina, California, China and the Arabian Peninsula. This extract or oil is commonly used for cooking, but is also found in numerous supplements. It’s said to have a number of health benefits, such as reducing bad cholesterol levels and minimizing inflammation.

What is it Supposed to Do?

Sometimes olive extract is used in supplements to help with regularity. It may also promote heart health, reduce blood pressure and benefit the colon.

Clinical Research

NCBI.gov says, “Supplementation with olive leaf polyphenols for 12 weeks significantly improved insulin sensitivity and pancreatic β-cell secretory capacity in overweight middle-aged men at risk of developing the metabolic syndrome.”

Choline Bitartrate

To start, choline bitartrate is similar to b vitamins. It is found in foods like eggs, nuts, liver, beans, wheat germ, beef, spinach and peas. Furthermore, it can be made by the body (in the liver).[2]

What is it Supposed to Do?

There are claims that choline bitartrate can help treat liver disease, asthma, memory loss, schizophrenia, depression and even some allergies. It’s found in a number of health supplements. It’s often said to improve athletic performance and boost mental clarity.

Clinical Research

According to WebMD, “Giving choline intravenously (by IV) treats liver disease in people receiving parenteral nutrition who are choline deficient.” However, this substance has not been tied to weight-loss.

We have our eye on a supplement that fits the bill. Leptigen, which is formulated with ingredients that HAVE been clinically tested, may be a good option. All customers can take advantage of a Special Trial Offer, currently available. Click here to give it a try.

Not costly at all… Rather it’s just fine, if your health turn even better than before

Been taking usana for 3yrs.. And rrcomend it to my family… It gives us extra energy all day.. My grandma who has diabetes and hypertension graduatrd from using her medications after 3mos of taking the essentials and coquinone… She had stroke before and the other side of her face sogged. Now after 3yrs, she dont get tired easily and her face returned to its nrmal state before she had stroke. No more hospitalixation for 3yrs now. Lots of my friends are also takung them and they love it.

Usana doesnt work for my health, first day of taking it i had a stomach ache then the second day i had a fever, cough and cold. Then the third day my pimples appear on my face that i dont have that before and for that incident i feel bad about buying usana and i stop taking it so the other day another thing happened to me, the hives appears all over my body

In your case your undergoing healing process.. You have a lot of toxins in your body that why you had those toxic excretions in your body.

I’ve been using USANA Products for 9 Months already…. With the negative comments about the product seems a result of skeptic minds and lack of knowledge…. Anyway if try to ask the person recommended the product all side effects has underlying cause or shall we say you experience negative effects because the product heals specific problems with your body thus the right term for it is Healing Effect and not Negative effect…. if you try to study about how the body works you will also understand why experiencing those Healing Effect when body Heals. When I use USANA for 6 Months Time I’ve Experience Sleepiness because I was Alcoholic those who have liver problems will experience this as to heal or regenerate liver you need to sleep. Cough for lung problems, Cold for those who have sinusitis, Frequent urination for those who have kidney problem, acne for removing or cleaning skin cortex, skin irritation when you have liver toxicity and i’ve experince all this and its really worth im now very healthy just trust USANA and the science behind…. According to Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements by NutriSearch Company is Number 1 when they compare 1600 products in CANADA and US… you can buy the book in Amazon or any Book Store…. Thats how powerful USANA product was… hope this will help…

The Cellsentials or Essentials (old formula) are not weight loss supplements. The are designed to make up for the lack of nutrients that are missing from our foods due to over farming in depleted soils, manufactured processed foods and the bodies ability to utilize vitamins, minerals, protiens, carbohydrates and fats. The main reason we as a whole need supplements is because of stress both internally and externally causes inflammation in every organ, muscle, tissue down to the very cell. Thank you for letting me comment.

A good samaritan has introduce me these products. im on my 4th day and the results are amazing. I have myocardial infarction so i am very careful in taking medicines/tablets even supplemental but since i have cough and colds, i have tried taking the products. megaantioxidant and chelated mineral tablet one tablet each in the morning. At night, i can sleep well but during dawn time, i woke up and keep on coughing and to my surprise, i have cough out unwanted mucus and it continuous and my breathing improve. Thanks Usana, youre a big help to me. More power to the producer of Usana.

USANA VITAMINS is GOOD

I’m not buying this product again and I regret taking this. I think my kidney problem got worse.

is this effective??

Hi there! I’ve been using USANA since 2014. My friend recommended it to me because I was looking for something that would help me with my anxiety problem. Since I started using USANA, my condition has improved. Until I’m still taking USANA supplements and keep recommending it to friends specially with certain symptoms. It really helps!

Hi hazel.

Yes, that is very effective based on studies.

1 more important thing i forgot to tell about Usana Essentials Multivitamin it helps me to quit smoking its really amazing…

For me all the first negative reactions side effects comment here it is only FIRST EXPERIENCED after a 2weeks taking USANA WOW… FANTASTIC the good effect will be bloom and glow and
your body reaction feeling succeed the benefits of USANA…thank you for making this kind excellence vitamins…overjoyed…USANA company totally HONEST and I FELT YOU DID IT BY HEART…THANK YOU still i cant believed the good benefits of this vitamins????God bless!

I’ve felt positive and negative results in the first days of using USANA Antioxidant and Multi-Mineral: I have more energy and stamina, but felt heart palpitations on Day 1 (not any more since). Note; I minimized the dosage, although I was told to take 8 pills per day and drink lots of water, I only take 1 pill of each. Back pain felt by some users could be a reaction from Liver or Kidneys, suggesting the dose is too high.

been taking usana products for 8mos now and i don’t see any good effects of it in my body. non-stop heartburn and sleepless night. i was told that these would go away but it’s getting worse. I decided to stop using it and go back to DXN which doesn’t have these effects. You can also see the detox effects. I tried barley and it has good effect too.

Hi I am taking essentials and proflavanol c. For 2 weeks…ATM, I am experiencing palpitations….is this healing effect?

I’ve just started taking Mega Antioxidant and Multi-Mineral Plus and only take one tablet of each, per day. Interestingly, I had heart palpitations on the first day, but I’m continuing because I have more energy, stamina has increased and I don’t need as much sleep.

Hello Mimi. All users are different and can experience different side effects, but please make sure to consult with your physician if you are still experiencing those results.

actually I experienced the exact same thing. I had colds after taking the vitamins for a week, then my doctor who prescribed usana to me said its just the healing reaction. The toxins of our body are slowly eliminated in our body.

I used the Essentials and several of the other products for a couple of years and they were fantastic for my system. Only problem – sadly – was the expense. I moved into a lower paying job and can no longer afford these vitamins. Wish I could – they were the best things I ever purchased!

it is really good! It is a bit expensive to other vitamin, but worth, because it is repairing the cell, body will have some reactions, after one or two weeks, you will feel the different. ????????

USANA Essentials is the best food supplements for me and my mom. It has been proven via lab test results that it really made us healthier. I am now a member and a fan of it. It brings wellness and protection to us.

USANA Essentials is the BEST of the best food supplements..it is not a weight loss supplement!
of course if you eat more than what your body needs, surely you will gain weight!
USANA Essentials will help you provide the vitamins and minerals and anti-oxidants that your body needs even if you are on a weight loss program.
I am from the philippines and I am a proud USANA user because i understood what it is made of. How about you out there,did you understand what USANA is made of?

YoRaymond J. Alipitur Name

TI am recently taking USANA tablets for just two weeks. It is hard to tell yet what improvements took place. Anyhow, I kinda experience nausea sometimes and at one time headache I usually do not experience. I read about weight loss and I was scared that this will reduce my weight which I do not like to happen. On the other hand, I can gain weight if I continue to eat more. As I said, I am still new to this and want to observe further how it will affect my body as I am already in my twilight years of 74. Please bear with me and tell all about how I can improve my health as I have now feelings of gout, arthritis just that and I hope to buy my aspirins as my heart doctor told me before to take a pellet a day for my heart.

It has been 19 days since I began USANA vitamins. After a week, my agent asked me how things are going on with USANA. I told her that I first experience some drowsiness that I have never felt so sleepy for a long time. I have somoe really truthful experience after some 19 days and here are those that I felt moved to share. I experience joint and muscle pains that comes along with tingling sensations. I experienced all the time constipation and now have loose bowels like it is diarrhea. When I took my walks around town, I carried myself like I won’t be tired anymore but still have the feeling of being lazy and just want to eat, eat, and drink and so in between meals, I tend to fill in my stomach with anything I wanted to eat. I believe I am still in a period of adjustment. This is a new thing to me after some 30 years that a friend introduced me SHAKLEE. I subscribed for the vitamins for home use only for my family and myself. That was it but of course some vitamins from the counters of Walmart, CVC Drug stores, Targets for Centrum, and other vitamins A,C,D,E, and so forth. So, let these experience be written on record until next time, I am Raymond Alipit.
