In an event that will certainly be heralded as one of the most pivotal in the company’s 15-year history, USANA announced Monday, June 11, that it will contribute $500,000 per year over the course of 10 years to the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI), giving a radical boost to the research abilities of both great organizations.

“The partnership between LPI and USANA will significantly enhance the Institute’s research mission, enabling our scientists to better understand the role antioxidants, phytochemicals, and other nutrients play in human health,” said Balz Frei, director of LPI. “We are very excited about this opportunity.”For over a decade, the Linus Pauling Institute, one of the nation’s first Centers of Excellence for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine, has been committed to the research of heart disease, cancer, aging, and neurodegenerative diseases. “The Linus Pauling Institute is clearly at the forefront of research in the arenas of nutrition and health,” Dr. Tim Wood declares. “USANA is proud to be supporting their efforts and we look forward to working with LPI in advancing the science of nutrition in both laboratory and clinical settings.”
