Hi board,
I did a lot of inside research both into the science (mad scientist self experimentation), business model and market, discussion with at least two members of the scientific advisory board.

It looks great and I'd disagree with anyone that the growth is not there: Critical mass for explosive growth is not there yet.

With baby boomers aging and concerned about health, Gen Y understanding the idea, financial and tax benefits of an online business AND worried about health the future is bright. USNA has medical grade supplement product you can actually feel it works.

Note what keeps thing back:
Supplement companies are not allowed to make medical claims about their products even if clinical trials show sound results like the tests on the Healthy for Life/Reset "weight loss" program I tried showed substantial reduction in Cholesterol that will make big Pharma shudder.

Physicians and Chiropractors , many of whom use the products for their patients, have not fully adapted supplements due to lack of training

They learn next to nothing about nutrition in med school but people believe they do becaus they're MDs and when they call vitamins "expensive urine"...

The business model is gaining credibility and momentum especially during the financial crisis but still needs cranking to overcome preconceptions.

Ok I'm tired, I'm done , Open for discussion.
Rgds, CG long USNA
