With the prevalent issues on doping or utilization of banned substances that boost one’s athletic performance, Gaston also noted that USANA understands that nutritional products must not jeopardize the athletes’ credibility in his/her respective field. Hence, USANA offers an ironclad solution through its Athlete Guarantee Program, which furnishes athletes with the much-needed security and peace of mind and strengthens the company’s commitment to providing supplements that one can completely trust.
