SLMsmart Success: Employee Challenge

Thursday, August 29, 2013

A few short months ago, Synergy's corporate team challenged its members to a 90 day SLMsmart weight-loss challenge. Many of our staff signed up to follow the SLMsmart system and compete to win an exciting grand prize.

Total 90 Day Weight Loss: 16.23% of starting body weight.

It was an exciting, closely-run race right until the last day of the challenge. In the end, Synergy WorldWide happily offered a huge congratulations to Sophia Karlsson Wilson for losing 16.23% of her body weight in just 90 days! Sophia was awarded a new iPad mini for her example, her discipline and her dedication.

From The Archives: Are Your Supplements Safe?

Monday, August 26, 2013

 Over half of American adults use dietary supplements. In a fast-paced society where supplementation becomes essential to maintain good health, many people have realized the benefits that come from supplements that would otherwise be lost due poor diets. However, these questions remain: Are all supplements created equal? Do all of them really do good for our bodies? How can we be sure we are getting the best available supplements?

In the past four years one in two inspections by the FDA have turned up significant manufacturing practice violations for supplements. This startling statistic just so happens to be the highest rate of any FDA regulated industry for non-compliance.

In 2012 there were more than 80 products labeled as supplements to promote energy and muscle gain that were found to contain dangerous ingredients including steroids, stimulants and hormones. All tested products were easily obtained from online and retail stores. 

Perhaps the most frightening aspect of this study is that such ingredients were not even listed on the product label. You can view the article here, or check out the infographic by clicking here.

SLMsmart Interviews and Videos

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Earlier this year, Synergy WorldWide proudly launched the SLMsmart System and product line for North America. Now, Synergy is making it easier than ever for people to learn the science behind SLMsmart, and to see why SLMsmart is the superior weight-management system in the industry.

A new line of videos has been added to the Resources tab. These videos include product and overall-system explanations directly from Dr. Stacey Bell, the expert behind the SLMsmart system. We encourage everyone to take the time to educate yourself on the SLMsmart science, so you can have the knowledge, power and confidence to achieve results for yourself and help others do the same.

Howard Hannemann Interviews Doctor Bell

One of the biggest video projects added to the SLMsmart Resources collection is a recent interview held at the Synergy corporate office. Director of Sales Howard Hannemann sat down with Dr. Bell to learn the "why" behind SLMsmart. As she answered Howard's questions, Dr. Bell explained how SLMsmart compares to the competition, why the diet industry is so large, how Team Members can effectively share the system with others, and more. 

For your convenience, the Resources tab features the entire interview broken up into seven short segments, each segment focusing on a different topic. You can also find the full version of the interview on the site or view it below:

More to Come, Stay Tuned!

If you would like to know more about SLMsmart, Synergy invites you to check the Resources tab often, as more videos are planned to be added to the Resources tab. In fact, Synergy intends to populate the tab with a variety of helpful tips and articles in the near future. Be sure to like Synergy Central on Facebook for updates.


Interview with Team Member, Miss Arizona

Friday, August 16, 2013

One of Synergy's talented Team Members, Jennifer Smestad, was recently crowned Miss Arizona. As this impressive young lady represents her home state on the Miss America stage, and represents Synergy WorldWide behind the scenes, she uses kindness, a healthy lifestyle and a dynamic background to make a great impression. 

In between her travels and media appearances, Jennifer took some time to explain a bit of her story as well as a few reasons why Synergy has become an important part of her life.

Synergy: How was the experience of being crowned Miss Arizona?

Jennifer Smestad: It was incredible. I loved it. I didn't “not-expect” to win, but then I didn't expect to win either. So it was a shock either way, and it was awesome.

What was the rest of the night like, after the pageant was over? What did you do after being crowned?

Right after, I had photos with everyone-- the other contestants, my family-- that took about an hour probably. Then we had a little conference where I spoke a little bit, family and friends got together. Then I went home, brought all my stuff home, and went to bed. Actually I had a piece of cake first. Then I got up 2 hours later for a news interview, so I got two hours of sleep that night.

Team Member Spotlight: Mylo Berstad

Thursday, August 08, 2013

Mylo Berstad and his wife Rhonda
Mylo Berstad of Saskatchewan, Canada is no stranger to hard work. In fact, he developed a strong work ethic early in his life, working as a dairy farmer for over 17 years. “We milked 110 [cows each day]," said Berstad, "so they were long days.” He then explored his talent for sales and business, selling investments until age 40. Now, he has a small business selling semi tires and spends the rest of his time sharing the Synergy Advantage with as many people as he can.


Berstad was introduced to ProArgi-9+ by friend and fellow Canadian Ben Moosman. “I was at an Agribition farm show in this province. I was down there selling semi tires at the show. I took a break and went around; I saw Ben there and started talking to him. I got interested in the product just from what he had told me about what it had done for him. I was looking [for things that could help with] controlling my high blood pressure-- that was the reason I purchased my first two cans from him.”


At the Agribition show, Berstad took his first scoop of ProArgi-9+ and noticed right away that his ability to breathe while carrying suitcases up stairs seemed to be enhanced. “I thought: ‘No, that can’t be from that stuff.’ But anyhow, that was the very first thing that I felt.”

Berstad’s next experience with the product happened in December of 2012. He had been dealing with health issues and an injury for quite some time. After only three days of taking ProArgi-9+, he started experiencing a variety of remarkable benefits. He was amazed. “That’s when I got very excited about this product.”
