Elite Honors Spotlight: Kent Clark

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 ,

Month after month, Team Members are discovering just how much is attainable when they set a goal to become Elite Honors Qualified each month. Team Members who have qualified multiple months are seeing the fruits of their labors and some are going the extra mile by maintaining their highest pin titles to earn the Go Elite Promotion bonus.

One of these Team Members is Kent Clark, a Bronze from Wingo, Kentucky, who has been with Synergy WorldWide for a short three months and is using his medical background to connect with health practitioners in his area. He was in chiropractic work for many years, but recently found his passion in natural healthcare and became a practitioner. He believes in Synergy’s products and works as a consultant with his sponsor Dr. Jim Sandberg to get the products into as many doctors’ hands as possible.

Since beginning his Synergy business, Kent has been working nonstop to grow his team, and in September, he accumulated enough volume to become Elite Honors Qualified without realizing it. He was educated on the Elite Honors earnings model and set up an Autoship template to make his Elite Honors Qualification official. In the same month, he rank advanced to Bronze and was rewarded with a $300 Go Elite bonus.

“This bonus was a total surprise,” Kent said. “I knew bonus opportunities were available, but
didn’t know exactly what it would take to earn them. I know Elite Honors and this promotion will help me a lot in the future.”

His current goal is to put 10 new people on a 500 CV package of Synergy products each month. Another important element in his business is showing doctors how to make 15,000 CV per month with the Synergy product package Kent put together. Kent said he believes these goals will not only help him become a consistent Elite Honors Qualifier, they’ll help him maintain his current title, achieve new titles, and earn the Go Elite Bonus every month.

“As I learn more about training my own downline, Elite Honors will serve as a useful talking point that will make the learning process a lot easier,” Kent said.

Hughes Center Makes Groundbreaking ProArgi-9+ Discoveries

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Scientists at the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation have made several remarkable discoveries on Synergy’s ProArgi-9+ formula, showing that ProArgi-9+ can do what l-arginine cannot do on its own. Following these discoveries, Nature’s Sunshine has filed a United States provisional patent application to ensure that Synergy maintains exclusive rights to this iconic formula.

While the details of the patent application are not yet published, Dr. Matthew Tripp, Nature’s Sunshine’s Chief Scientific Officer, shared some insights into their discoveries.

“Numerous studies have shown the cardiovascular benefits of l-arginine,” explained Nature’s Sunshine’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Matthew Tripp. “However, our preliminary in vitro and human studies showed that the unique combination of ingredients in our ProArgi-9+ formula enhances the effects of L-arginine within the body in several ways.”


The body converts the amino acid l-arginine into nitric oxide to support healthy circulatory and cardiovascular function. Although l-arginine alone can increase the surrogate marker of saliva nitric oxide, this is a gradual process. In testing ProArgi-9+, Nature’s Sunshine found that its formula significantly and rapidly increases the level of nitric oxide in the body.

The findings of this study are significant because other studies show that aging and poor diet can affect the metabolic systems responsible for producing nitric oxide, causing them to work less effectively. Healthy nitric oxide levels are important for proper vasodilation, along with blood pressure, muscle, heart and central nervous system function*.


Previous studies have shown that l-arginine has no significant effect on myeloperoxidase, an enzyme that inhibits nitric oxide production. Additionally, l-arginine has no significant influence on inhibiting the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. The Hughes Center’s preliminary study discovered that the unique combination of ingredients found in Synergy’s ProArgi-9+ potently inhibited myeloperoxidase and helps to reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol.

“These groundbreaking studies are exactly what we hoped for when the Hughes Center opened its doors in February 2015,” said Dan Norman, President of Synergy WorldWide. “Thanks to Dr. Matthew Tripp and his team of skilled scientists, we can publicize the proven impact ProArgi-9+ can have on countless lives all over the world. This is exciting news, and we are eager to share it with individuals around the world with the hope of helping more people achieve optimal health.”

Together, the results of these studies indicate that the unique properties found in ProArgi-9+ positively impact cardiovascular health by supporting the production of nitric oxide and inhibiting myeloperoxidase. These findings support the use of ProArgi-9+ for optimal heart health.

The Hughes Center is revealing the power that lies in Synergy products. Synergy WorldWide is incredibly fortunate to have a brilliant and seasoned staff of scientists standing behind its products, providing telling research that reinforces Synergy’s mission to leave a lasting legacy of health around the world.

ProArgi-9+ Wins Best New Product at Expo!

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

More than 15,000 people passed through the recent 2015 CAMexpo in London where natural healthcare professionals gather to showcase the latest products and attend workshops from health industry experts. This year, a group of Synergy Team Members attended the 2-day expo and showcased Synergy’s bestselling product ProArgi-9+.

All of the healthcare professionals, practitioners, therapists, pharmacists, and health store retailers who attended CAMexpo had the opportunity to vote on the “Best New CAM Product.” ProArgi-9+ beat 35 other products in the New Product Showcase’s opening day to claim the award!

“It’s the first time we’ve been at CAMexpo and it’s been a tremendous show,” said Synergy Team Member Lorraine Knight after receiving the award. “It’s a great achievement for us to win this award, which gives our product the recognition we believe it deserves.  It’s a great endorsement going forward and we’re delighted to win.”

Lorraine Knight and Peter Tarbitten organized and manned the ProArgi-9+ booth with the help of fellow Team Members Tamara McKenzie, Mark Weston, and their sponsors Paul and Kate Flint. They invited visitors to try the product and come back to the booth 45-60 minutes later to report their results. The vast majority of those who tried the product were more than pleased and voted ProArgi-9+ the Best New CAMexpo Product with total confidence. By the end of the expo, Synergy had a list of new customer and distributors.

“Receiving this award is validation that ProArgi-9+ is a product the people want and need,” Paul Flint said. “People who have never heard about ProArgi-9+ are instantly intrigued by its health benefits and when they take the product they are seeing results right away. Health professionals, especially in the United Kingdom, are familiar with CAMexpo and this award will be a talking point as we introduce ProArgi-9+ to practitioners and therapists in the future.”

We are ecstatic that the power or ProArgi-9+ was discovered by thousands of well-respected health professionals thanks to this fantastic tradeshowand the UK Team Members that made it happen.

Million Dollar Club: Stefan Patrik Kristofferson & Øistein Bekkvang

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Business partners and friends Stefan Patrik Kristofferson and Øistein Bekkvang know that two minds are stronger than one, which is why they joined forces in 2009 to begin building a Synergy empire. Less than three years later they achieved the Emerald Executive title, making them the third account to ever earn this status in Europe. With this title, they continued to expand their business across Europe and recently hit the $1 million mark, a major milestone in their Synergy journey.

“I met Patrik in another company and I was surprised by his work ethic,” Øistein said. “When I learned about Synergy WorldWide, I shared my knowledge with Patrik but he was not interested. After about a year, he finally saw the potential and value that rested in this company.”

Øistein’s and Stefan Patrik’s personalities are perfect complements, allowing their business to excel in areas that maybe it wouldn’t have had they chose to work alone. Øistein’s strengths shine behind the scenes with his logic, realistic perspective and level-headed nature. He is someone that new acquaintances can instantly trust. Stefan Patrik shines on stage. He knows how to make a room full of people excited and motivated to go after their dreams. Together, they create the solid foundation of a business that consistently executes and thrive because of it.

All of the success the team has seen over the years initially took off in 2010, when Øistein and Stefan Patrik flew to the U.S. to visit Synergy WorldWide and meet company executives and successful Team Members, including Double Presidential Mark Comer.

“When I returned home from that trip I told Øistein I was 100% with him in this business venture,” Stefan Patrik said. “The products are made for real people with a desire to better their health. The Compensation Plan was the best I had seen because of the Mega-Match. Though there weren’t many sales materials available in Europe when we started our business, we always received the support we needed, and everyone sincerely wanted to help us. That’s one of the biggest benefits that comes with starting a Synergy business.”

Centering their business focus on setting and achieving goals, Øistein and Stefan Patrik have taught hundreds, if not thousands, effective goal-setting habits, and their example is founding cornerstones in the way Europe’s leaders teach new distributors to operate every day. They have worked tirelessly over the years, traveling and educating the masses about Synergy’s valuable products and opportunities. And though the work hasn’t been easy, they wouldn’t trade the time they’ve spent with Synergy for anything. They’ve been able to achieve financial freedom, travel the world and make lifelong friendships.

“If you want to change your life, if you want to be something you have never been before, this is the opportunity to be that person,” Stefan Patrik said. “You get to work when you want to work, where you want to work, and with the people you enjoy being with. You can take control of your life. I call that the Synergy lifestyle.”

Øistein and Stefan Patrik are grateful for their supportive sponsor Martin Østvang and the many people on their team who have devoted themselves to Synergy WorldWide and allowed this new Million Dollar Club team to advance within the company.

Protein and Meal Replacements Increasing in Demand

Monday, October 12, 2015

Between 2009 and 2014, protein has become one of consumer health’s most in-demand ingredients with a sales increase of 59.3%, according to Euromonitor. Additionally, meal replacements are the highest selling weight management supplement today! Both trends are forecasted to stay on the incline for the foreseeable future as people invest in fitness and grow increasingly aware of their health.

Recognizing this trend, Synergy WorldWide decided to meet two global consumer demands with SLMsmart Health Shake, a delicious meal replacement mix with 26 grams of protein in every serving. But what is it that’s making protein and meal replacements a household necessity?


The human body is stacked with protein. Proteins exist in the outer and inner membranes of every living cell and also make an appearance in:

  • Muscle tissue
  • Bones
  • Red blood cells and plasma
  • Hair and nails

The body needs protein to make enzymes, which do a number of jobs in the body, including digesting food and making new cells. Perhaps one of the most important jobs that proteins have are creating neurotransmitters, which are responsible for sending messages back and forth from nerve cells to other specialized cells, such as muscle cells.

As people are predicted to continue making fitness a priority, protein will increase in importance because it is essential in supporting muscle growth. While SLMsmart Health Shake was designed by in-house scientists to support weight management programs, many have turned to SLMsmart for its protein content and nutrients.


As people find their schedules more and more hectic, it can be tough to constantly stress over proper nutrition, especially when trying to control their weight. That’s why an increasing number of people are reaching for meal replacement shakes, which are nutrient-dense and can help fill the gaps created by an incomplete diet through an easy-to-mix shake. Add in the convenience factor of being able to stash a serving or two in your purse or car and you have the recipe for a quick, delicious alternative to skipping a meal or overindulging in a less healthy restaurant option.

Whether you’re looking for an easy weight management solution or a convenient way to fill nutritional voids, Health Shake can show you why meal replacements are skyrocketing in popularity. Incorporate this mix into your daily routine to satisfy your chocolate and vanilla cravings while staying on track to a healthier you. Whether you use SLMsmart for nutrition, weight management or fitness, it’s full of the healthy essentials your body craves with a taste you love.

Elite Honors Spotlight: Steve & Julie Russon

Saturday, October 03, 2015

Month after month, Team Members are discovering just how much is attainable when they set a goal to become Elite Honors Qualified each month. Team Members who have qualified multiple months are seeing the fruits of their labors and some are going the extra mile by maintaining their highest pin titles to earn the Go Elite promotion bonus.

Steve and Julie Russon, Silvers from Pleasant Grove, Utah, recently achieved Elite Honors for the third time and received the Go Elite bonus twice. This hardworking is couple has been with Synergy for 2 ½ years and is not lacking in personality. Steve competes in Scottish games, always sporting a kilt with a Synergy T-shirt, and Julie keeps herself busy supporting their three children and one grandson.  In addition, Steve works as the first assist to an orthopedic surgeon and sees the many ailments people suffer from on a daily basis.

“When we first heard about the Elite Honors model, it seemed familiar, like this is what we were supposed to be doing anyway. Before Elite Honors, we were working, but we were floundering. When Elite Honors was launched, we were really focused on making the customer volume work and focused on getting the signups. It has been a great guide for us. Every day, my husband and I wake up and decide what we need to do to achieve Elite Honors and then we say “Where do we want to go?” It is a morning habit now, like eating breakfast or brushing teeth.

Through Elite Honors, we’ve learned the business building process; we’ve learned how to focus and how to get organized. However, we had to decide that we didn’t want any another option, we wanted this to work. The program has been easy enough and is the reason we wake up with a fixed idea in our minds each morning of what we will accomplish that day. Remember, nothing ever comes easy and it’s a gradual process.

I have a serious appreciation for how devoted Synergy’s leaders are and how they express what Synergy has done for them. Because of this, the Synergy dream is believable and it’s possible. Synergy is a company that will never rip you off. It’s a company that cares and it’s an environment of caring for others.”
