Meet The Founder

Dr. Myron Wentz, internationally recognized microbiologist, immunologist, and pioneer in the development of human cell culture technology and infectious disease diagnoses, holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, a master’s degree in microbiology from the University of North Dakota, and a Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

Joining a pathology group in Peoria, Illinois, Dr. Wentz served as infectious diseases specialist and directed the microbiology and immunology laboratories for three hospitals in the Peoria area. After three years of clinical experience, he saw an opportunity to make a deeper contribution to medical science by developing much-needed tests for viral diseases.

Dr. Wentz launched Gull Laboratories as a one-man operation in 1974. By June of 1977, several of his viral diagnostic assays were FDA-approved and ready for marketing to hospitals and clinical laboratories. He developed the first commercially available test for diagnosing infection with the Epstein-Barr virus. Dr. Wentz sold his controlling interests in Gull Laboratories in 1992 and founded USANA Health Sciences, a state-of-the-art manufacturer of nutritional supplements, foods, and personal-care products.

Even though his businesses have been extremely successful, Dr. Wentz first and foremost considers himself to be a scientist, not a businessman. Nonetheless, Dr. Wentz’ business acumen has been recognized through a presidential appointment as an advisor to the Small Business Administration and as a 2003 recipient of the Utah Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.

In addition to Gull Laboratories and USANA Health Sciences, Dr. Wentz created Sanoviv Medical Institute, a holistic medical facility with full hospital accreditation located in Baja California. In recent years Dr. Wentz has turned his attention to charitable and humanitarian concerns, founding the Wentz Medical Centre and Laboratory in Uganda and the Wentz Medical Centre in Cambodia to serve children in those countries orphaned by diseases such as malaria and HIV. In 2006 Dr. Wentz was a recipient of the Children’s Champion Award, presented by the Children’s Hunger Fund, for which he travels worldwide as a medical missionary. In 2007 Dr. Wentz was honored with the Albert Einstein Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Life Sciences. In 2009 the new Children’s Hunger Fund Malawi Medical Center opened and was named after USANA’s founder.  In 2011 Dr. Wentz received the Multi Level Marketing International Award (MLMIA) Industry 5 Star Award and co-authored the national best-selling book, The Healthy Home.

While Dr. Wentz’ primary focus is on health and disease prevention, his love for music and his generosity have made possible the Wentz Concert Hall and Fine Arts Center at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois.


A Message from Founder Dr. Myron Wentz

We have forgotten what it is like to die of old age in this world. Instead, we die of man-made diseases that could and should be prevented. Statistics tell us that one in three people will die of cancer, one in three will prematurely die as a result of heart disease and most of the rest will die of either another form of disease or by accidental death. Only a few of us will die of old age.

I find it tragic that the vast majority of people leave this earth too soon and spend too many of their years in pain and suffering. Chronic degenerative diseases are rampant throughout the world. Both of my parents died prematurely. My father succumbed to heart disease when I was 17 years old, and my mother died several years ago of cancer. When my father died, I remember my mother saying to me that she wished I could have done something to help him.

We now know that optimal nutrition is key to long-term good health. Unfortunately, the high level of nutrition that is necessary to maintain good health is difficult to receive from the typical modern diet. And, the nutritional supplement industry was filled with incomplete, unbalanced products. This discovery led me to found USANA Health Sciences in 1992 in order to develop advanced nutritional formulations and manufacture premier nutritional supplements. Today, I believe that with the USANA Health Sciences products, people can live healthier lives, and I’m excited about sharing this good news with others.

USANA customers can be assured that they are providing the cells of their bodies with the right kind and the right amounts of nutrients. Together, the USANA family has become a global force with a unique vision of helping people adopt the healthy lifestyle that USANA products support. I dream of a world free from pain and suffering. I dream of a world free from disease. The USANA family will be the healthiest family on earth. Share my vision. Love life and live it to its fullest in happiness and health.
