DR WENTZ WORLD FINEST
Over the past 30 years, Dr. Myron Wentz has founded three successful companies focused on providing innovative solutions in health and nutrition.
Wentz launched Gull Laboratories as a one-man operation in 1974 with the goal of developing viral diagnostic assays. By June of 1977, several Gull test kits were FDA-approved and ready for marketing, including the first commercially available test for diagnosing infection with the Epstein-Barr virus.
Wentz began a new health-related enterprise in 1990 through the development of cutting-edge nutritional supplements. The operation was incorporated on July 20, 1992 as USANA Health Sciences, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gull Laboratories, Inc. USANA was subsequently spun off from Gull as a separate corporation in January 1993.
USANA’s nutritional supplements quickly found a loyal customer base through network marketing distribution, and the company soon expanded to new markets in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Today, more than 150,000 independent associates in 14 international markets distribute USANA products. As USANA’s founder and chairman, Wentz speaks frequently to large and small audiences across the world on the subjects of health and nutrition.
In addition to Gull Laboratories and USANA Health Sciences, Wentz founded Sanoviv Medical Institute, a holistic medical facility with full hospital accreditation located in Baja California.
