USANA Health Sciences and Dr. Mehmet Oz are making it official, so to speak. USANA has teamed up on several occasions with the heart surgeon and Daytime Emmy Award-winning host of The Dr. Oz Show. On Tuesday, the global nutrition company announced its new status as one of The Dr. Oz Show‘s Trusted Partners and Sponsors.
According to Dr. Oz, the relationship grew from a shared vision “to make a positive impact on the health of others.” In 2012, USANA became a national sponsor of HealthCorps, the charitable foundation that Dr. Oz and his wife, Lisa, founded in 2003. HealthCorps is a wellness movement to combat childhood obesity through in-school and community programming. The following year, Dr. Oz served as master of ceremonies at the USANA Champions for Change 5K, an annual superhero-themed event supporting the USANA True Health Foundation.
“For The Dr. Oz Show to call any company a Trusted Partner and Sponsor, it must meet certain criteria,” Dr. Oz shared in the company’s release. “Chief among them is integrity. We’ve done our research and found USANA to be an outstanding company—one that offers cutting-edge products that we here at the show would feel comfortable recommending to our wonderful audience.”
To kick off the partnership, USANA’s joint health supplement Procosa will appear this week on The Dr. Oz Show. The company’s award-winning products will also appear on Dr. Oz’s website and in future broadcasts.
