I also take these products. They are great. I've had some very unexpected results with my dental health.
I'm signed up as a distributor, but am not particularly active due to other career aims.
I can't agree that they are a pyramid scheme any more that any other company works that with a pyramid structure (and that's all of them!). Usana is one of the few MLM companies that was not founded by a network marketer, but rather a reputable scientist, and has more customers than distributors. I check them out on a regular basis and have yet to come across any credible reports of bad behaviour by the company or its distributors.
If you are concerned about MLM companies beind pyramid schemes (and many of them are), there are a number of MLM watch dog sites, but beware, many of these are maintained by disgrunteled distributors some of whom are rather dubious themselves. Network marketing can be a strange business and many go into it with false expectations.
Nonetheless, many do well with it and there are legitamate companies makeing useful products. I can't say that I'm a great distributor, but Usana seems a great company to me.
