Manila, Philippines – 28 April 2013 — Noted health scientist Dr. John Cuomo, PhD–holder of over 20 patents in the USANAUnited States and Europe–visits the country this week as he graces USANA Philippines’ Quarterly Celebration at the SMART Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

Dr. Cuomo is the author of several scientific papers and is USANA Health Science’s executive director of product development and technologies. He is a recognized expert in synthetic organic chemistry, manufacturing, and analytical methods. His visit marks the Philippine launch of two innovative health supplements from USANA: Procosa and Pure Rest.

USANA Procosa is a supplement whose groundbreaking formula supports optimal health for joints. It is a blend of glucosamine, manganese, and vitamin C, building blocks for healthy cartilage.

Cartilage is the protective layer that cushions and lubricates the joints. USANA originally developed the Procosa in Canada where millions of people there suffer from some form of joint problem.

On the other hand, Pure Rest is a fast-acting melatonin supplement that promotes the body’s natural sleep and wake up cycles. It supports the body’s natural circadian rhythms when taken at bedtime and has been clinically proven to help support sleep.

Pure Rest is not a sleeping pill.

“Dr. Cuomo’s visit underscores USANA’s passionate commitment to quality assurance through its state-of-the-art manufacturing methods and its innovative products based on market-driven R&D,” said USANA Philippines General Manager Aurora Claudia Gaston.
