My Story

J'en El & Dr. OzJ'en El & Dr. Oz

In 1994, I was introduced to USANA Health Sciences. The products turned out to be AMAZING. Over time, with proper nutrition and exercise I began maintaining a healthy weight as a result of consuming USANA’s low-glycemic shakes, bars and taking their nutritional supplements. My energy level increased and for me, life became worth living again.

USANA Health Sciences was founded by Dr. Myron Wentz, Dr. Wentz holds a bachelor's degree in biology from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, a master's degree in microbiology from the University of North Dakota, and a PhD in microbiology and immunology from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Because of his vision for a healthier and better world, Dr. Wentz is a devoted humanitarian and philanthropist. He is the inspiration for the USANA Foundation, a charity with a mission to help those suffering from hunger and malnutrition by providing them consistent nourishment and creating sustainable solutions for them to build their own food independence. He founded the Wentz Medical Center and Laboratory in Uganda and the Wentz Medical Center in Cambodia, which serve children orphaned by diseases such as malaria and HIV. With the generous donations of many USANA Associates, a facility bearing Dr. Wentz’ name was also established in Malawi. Working with the Children’s Hunger Fund, Dr. Wentz has continued to establish Medical Centers in other impoverished areas of the world. A total of seven centers have been established so far and there are two more projects underway. In addition to the Medical Centers, Dr. Wentz has helped fund the creation of several Mercy Centers and more are being established through his generous pledge for this purpose.
