Miss AZ

Miss Arizona, Jennifer Smestad

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.

Wow, that's a busy night

Yeah. The whole week after I was crowned I didn't get a lot of sleep. The whole week I had about eight total news interviews. It was fun. It was crazy.

Well, I saw some of those interviews and you did very well. You couldn't tell that you were lacking sleep.

Oh good! Thank you. That's a good thing.

So what's next?

Miss America is on September 15 and it will be live on ABC, so that's what I'm preparing for right now. I actually leave for Orlando tomorrow and I'm going to go watch the Miss America Outstanding Teen pageant. All the Misses get to go watch our teens and support them at their national pageant. We also do some filming for Miss America, we get to go to Disneyworld and meet each other. Then just two weeks after that I'll leave for Miss America on September 2nd and I will be in Atlantic City for 2 weeks!

Have you been to Atlantic City before?

I have not. It'll be my first time.

Be careful.

[Laughs] I will thanks.

Have you been to Disneyworld before?

I haven't. I've been to Disneyland many times, but Disney world I've never been to. I've always wanted to go there.

You mentioned in your interviews that you have struggled in the past with a serious condition. Is it true that you have Tourette's syndrome?

Yes, I was diagnosed at age 10. Are you aware of what Tourette's is?

Um… uh… (trying not to sound dumb… ) yeah, I think I'm familiar with the basics but I probably don't understand it as well as I should. I'm sure I could learn from you the info we all should know.

It's a neurological disorder that causes the body to make sudden movements and noises called "tic's." They are uncontrollable-- it's involuntary. Most people think that the most common symptom is cussing out loud, tremendously, a lot of times. That's actually one of the rarest symptoms. That's one part where people have a misunderstanding of what it actually is.

The way I like to explain it to people is, if you were to tie your hands down, and then someone comes and wiggles a feather in your ear, your first reaction would be to move your head, jerk your head and want to scratch it. So, that's kind of what Tourette's syndrome is like, all day long, for any one that suffers with it. It's really, really tiring.

So, I went through that for maybe five years and it was very hard for me. There were times when I didn't even want to live because my body was physically sore from jerking my head and having certain tic's. I'd be embarrassed and didn't want to be seen in public. It was something very hard to go through and I think most people don't understand unless they've lived with it.

My mom would always tell me, "You have this for a reason you are going to do something great with this one day." I never really believed her and now that I'm 20 years old, Miss Arizona, and my platform is Tourette's syndrome awareness and advocacy, I'm able to share my story and inspire others. My main goal this year is to give hope to others who are facing Tourette's or other similar issues because I wish I had someone to look up to that I could relate to.

You are now obviously out in public quite a bit, and I can't detect any signs of the condition at all. How have you been able to overcome it so well?

For me, it used to be very severe. I tried prescription drugs and counseling and a lot of things that never worked for me. Then I came across Natural Chinese acupuncture. We decided to try it out, and after one treatment we noticed a huge difference. My family noticed it, I noticed it… so then I went twice a week for six weeks, then after that my symptoms were gone. I took natural herbs at the same time which, of course, is why my family loves Synergy so much, because they are all about natural alternatives.

Sounds like wellness and health are an important part of you overcoming Tourette's and, as a contestant, health and fitness must be an important part of your life. What is your regimen like?

I have the SLMsmart meal replacement shake… I cannot live without it. It's amazing, so I have to have that. I also take the cleanse from SLMsmart. Then before every workout I take ProArgi-9+ and ProArgi-9+ Active mixed together and it makes me feel so much better during workouts. I want to keep going, I am so much more active, I have so much more endurance… and that is great to have, because preparing for a swimsuit competition on the Miss America stage is difficult. So it's good to have that extra boost that ProArgi-9+ helps me with. I love it.

I always post about Health Shake, saying "Having my cake batter ice cream, a.k.a. meal replacement shake!" My Miss Arizona director was like "What is this?" Then she bought some and now she loves it too.

Good job with the marketing! It seems to be working for you; I hope you never get tired of it.

I never will.

How were you introduced to Synergy WorldWide?

My parents [Brenda & Gary Smestad] have been involved with Synergy for about nine years now. I just kind of grew up with it and took all the vitamins and everything.

Also, Dan Higginson [Synergy Founder and CEO] and his family have been so loving and supportive of me and my journey. Dan is like an uncle to me and I appreciate all his support.

Have you been able to attend many Synergy events?

Yes, I've been to a few local meetings, and then we have meetings at our house a lot. Then I went to Vegas in 2011 [for the Global Summit]. The last time I was in Vegas, it was for that, and it was awesome.

Oh, and I want to add one more thing. In Miss America, all the contestants are required to have a talent, and my talent is singing. I've been singing basically my whole life and ever since Synergy was introduced to us… Mistica has been a miracle worker for my voice. If I'm getting a sore throat or if I feel like I'm losing my voice, I take it. And then the next morning I'm feeling fine. That is a necessity that I will definitely be taking with me to Miss America.

Maybe you should sing a song right now and I'll record it for our blog, we'll post the audio.

Oh gosh, I don't think so!

Oh okay. We'll try it sometime soon after you drink some more Mistica.

Synergy WorldWide wishes the best of luck to Miss Arizona as she continues what is sure to be a career of making a positive impact on the people around her.

If you would like to show your support for Team Member Jennifer Smestad, we encourage you to vote for her in the Miss America People's Choice contest. Remember to vote specifically for Miss Arizona. Good luck Jennifer!

Synergy WorldWide has outstanding products...  André Pedersen, Norway

André Pedersen is a 31 year old Team Member from Norway with experience as a football (soccer) coach, personal trainer, and masseur. He was first introduced to Synergy WorldWide by his mother who was taking ProArgi-9+ and experiencing great results. Although skeptical at first, André checked the ingredients on the ProArgi-9+ canister and immediately realized its possible benefits.

Upon hearing a presentation on ProArgi-9+ and Mistica, André desired to try the products himself before he could recommend them to anyone else. "I've always been skeptical of nutritional supplements as there are so many products in circulation that aren't exactly what they claim to be," André says. "More often than not, these products fail to reach high quality standards. If I recommend products that do not meet customer expectations, I will destroy my name and reputation, and thus lose my income."

Before taking the products, André took a cardio test on the treadmill and recorded the results. After the test, he began taking both products, which consisted of 4 scoops of ProArgi-9+ and 100 ml of Mistica every day. It didn't take long before the benefits started to appear.

André experienced better sleeping habits and felt rested and energized throughout the entire day. During strength training, he had more to give without experiencing the negative side effects of prolonged muscle fatigue. His recovery time improved despite the fact that he was training harder, and he noticed improvements to his skin and circulation.

After 3 months, André retook the cardio test and improved his time by 2.30 minutes. Experiencing these results in that short amount of time was miraculous and it was all contributed to ProArgi-9+ and Mistica. As part of the experiment, André stopped taking the products and could feel the repercussions immediately.

To get a second opinion, André emptied a canister of ProArgi-9+, replaced it with pharmaceutical L-arginine, and gave it to his girlfriend. After some time his girlfriend said, "André, I don't think the ProArgi-9+ is doing anything, it seems to have no effect at all." After receiving the feedback, André gave his girlfriend a fresh canister of ProArgi-9+ and the difference was obvious. "André, I think the ProArgi-9+ is working. I now have so much more energy during my workouts."

"Synergy Worldwide has outstanding products, and they are the first products that I can really vouch for and recommend strongly to others."

—André Pedersen, Norway

Synergy's products make a difference in my work out and recovery...  Joel Higginson, USA

While training for a half marathon, Joel Higginson ran for two months and started to get back into shape. Knowing the benefits of Synergy's products, he decided to incorporate one stick pack of ProArgi-9+ Active, two scoops of ProArgi-9+, and one scoop of Core Greens into his daily exercise regimen.

Joel immediately noticed great improvements to his running time. More importantly, he noticed a decreased buildup of lactic acid, he felt less fatigued, he recovered much faster and was able to do things that he wouldn't otherwise be able to do. Overall, the combined products helped keep his body in harmony.

"I've been active my entire life," Joel says. "I've always loved athletics and Synergy's products truly make a difference for me and my ability to work out, run, and recover. They really improve the way I feel."

And it's not just Joel who's benefiting from Synergy products. "My buddies don't really think about their heart health. At 33 years old, they just don't think about stuff like that," says Joel. "My buddies are now taking ProArgi-9+ because I told them, 'Hey, it's good for your workout. It's good for your ability to prolong your exercise.' They are taking ProArgi-9+ before going to the gym and now everybody's getting a better workout."

"My wife is turning into a runner as well," he continues. "If you want to see someone panic, try removing ProArgi-9+ from our cupboards," he jokes. "One time, I took all our ProArgi-9+ with me on a trip. She called me the second she noticed and insisted that I immediately replace it the day I got home. She loves it as much as I do!"

—Joel Higginson, USA

Thanks to Synergy and ProArgi-9+ I got my life back...  Judy Booth, Canada

"My husband and I were introduced to Synergy's ProArgi-9+ in early December 2010; however I was a bit skeptical about using it.

My husband has circulation issues and wanted an alternative, more natural method – so he started taking ProArgi-9+ right away. Within a couple of weeks of taking the product, we noticed that his circulation reached a healthy level. I had difficulty sleeping and suffered we pain and fatigue so at this point, I decided to give ProArgi-9+ a try.

On December 27, 2010 I started using ProArgi-9+ and to my surprise, week by week, I began feeling better. My pain and fatigue have significantly diminished. It has been just over a year now since starting ProArgi-9+ and I now have the best sleep, I can eat carbs and sweets without getting headaches or migraines, which I couldn't do before – I'm loving it!

I know ProArgi-9+ has helped my body to function better to where I now feel the best I have felt in a very long time. In comparison with other products we have taken in the past, ProArgi-9+ has made the most profound effect on our health and in such a short time! Thanks to Synergy and ProArgi-9+ I got my life back."

I no longer need double socks, winter boots, and electric blankets...  Barbara Ballas, USA

"Back in April 2010 I began noticing a decline in my circulation. My feet became so cold that I had to wear 2 pair of socks and winter boots in the summer and use two electric blankets at night to get to sleep. Before long, a toe on each foot went numb. In working with my doctor, tests confirmed that my circulation had worsened.

In November 2010, after using 4 scoops of ProArgi-9+ each day for six weeks, I noticed that all of my previous health concerns had disappeared. I no longer needed the double socks, winter boots, and electric blankets. My doctors confirmed that my circulation had improved and is now within a healthy, normal range.

Now today, after a little more than one year on ProArgi-9+, I can say that my cardiovascular system has experienced a significant enhancement. I know my circulation is optimal and that my body is able to regulate the many processes necessary for happy and healthy living. I have an incredible amount of energy; I have not had allergy attacks for the first time in 15 years, and am now able to breathe so much better. Thank you Synergy WorldWide and ProArgi-9+."

How many lives can we influence...  Wayne Sechrest

"What makes my day and keeps me going, is hearing my clients share their stories on how ProArgi-9+ has changed their lives. Nothing is better than hearing from those individuals who I have challenged to start taking ProArgi-9+. These amazing stories and the remarkable results from using ProArgi-9+, motivates me to continue to share how ProArgi-9+ will improve health using Nobel Prize winning science. Sometimes we don't realize how many people need us to share this miraculous dietary supplement with them.

Synergy is an amazing science-based wellness company that offers a product called ProArgi-9+. This product can help dramatically change lives. I have witnessed the results of ProArgi9+ in many individuals who use ProArgi-9+ to improve their health. By doing so, I have seen them improve their health, stamina, and outlook while also enjoying less medical interventions.

For example: after just a few months taking ProArgi-9+, a client of mine has had such remarkable results, such that 6 of her family and friends have started using ProArgi-9+. This client is in her 80's and got an "A+" from here doctor recently after years of serious circulatory related problems. Today her circulation is back to normal after fighting to normalize it for decades, thanks to ProArgi-9+. How many lives can we influence for good by introducing them to the best l-arginine supplement in the marketplace? It gets results!"

—Wayne Sechrest

We have finally found a supplement that really works...  Stan & Marilyn Hamilton, USA

"My wife, Marilyn and I have been using ProArgi-9+ (4 scoops per day) for about seven weeks now. Over the decades, we have spent thousands of dollars on various supplements, none of which resulted in any notable benefits, so we were really cautious about ProArgi-9+.

Within the first month, we began to gradually notice improvements with our own individual health issues. I'm 68 years old with multiple health concerns and within the first couple of weeks I started noticing I was becoming less stiff and sore in my daily activities. Prior to ProArgi-9+ I started thinking that soreness and stiffness was a normal part of aging! Marilyn has been dealing with poor circulation for years, which has required much attention by both herself and her doctors. To our surprise, her circulation has already started improving.

As a result of my health concerns, my poor circulation has resulted in numbness in my feet. Over the last three to four weeks, I have noticed that sensation is now returning. I have also noticed an enhanced sense of mental clarity and an overall improved feeling of well-being. I now no longer experience the pain that would often come when going for a walk, which prior to ProArgi-9+ had progressively gotten worse. My skin now looks and feels healthy and I feel like my blood is finally reaching every inch of my extremities.

Marilyn continues to notice significant improvement in her own circulation, as the need for medical intervention has now decreased. Her heart rate has greatly improved and she contributes these incredible benefits to ProArgi-9+.

We are completely convinced of the improvements we've experienced and are now optimistic about our future. After decades of searching, we have finally found a nutritional supplement that really works! We plan on using ProArgi-9+ for the rest of our lives and we look forward to the many more years to come."

—Stan & Marilyn Hamilton, USA

My stamina increased and I am now sleeping better...  Lenir Riehl, USA

"I had been looking for a product that could enhance circulation and also act as a preventative measure of heart health concerns. I have a personal family history of cardiovascular concerns, so I knew I needed to be proactive in my own health to prevent myself from that same road. At this time of research, I experienced shortness of breath that was really starting to bother me. When I found ProArgi-9+, I decided to give it a shot and was soon amazed that after taking it twice a day for a couple of months, that my shortness of breath was gone, my stamina increased and I was sleeping better. I always walk for at least 1/2 hour everyday, but now I walk with gusto! When we say that Synergy products provide health from "the top of the head to the big toe" we are not kidding!"

—Lenir Riehl, USA

ProArgi-9+ helps with a speedy recovery...  Melea Marsh

"I recently had my wisdom teeth extracted. Of course the days leading up to the surgery were filled with everyone sharing painful wisdom teeth stories so, needless to say, I was apprehensive. I had surgery on a Thursday and after the long weekend, I was back to preschool where I work on Tuesday. When I went back to the doctor a week later for a check-up, he was amazed at how fast I was healing -- I was at least one week ahead of schedule! The morale of this story is ProArgi-9+ enhances circulation so that your body can deliver the necessary nutrients to the areas of need - and in my case, help me with speedy recovery. "

—Melea Marsh

My energy has soared and I now play 18 holes of golf happily...  Auntie Marie

"In 1995 I had a virus which partially paralyzed the trunk of my body. I couldn't walk or move myself and needed to be carried everywhere. Post virus I was diagnosed with EpsteinBarrs. As of October of last year, I was able to work myself up to playing 9 holes of golf; however, I needed to drink an energy drink at hole 5 to make it through the remaining four holes. Following each golf outing, I would always have to return home and sleep. I had difficulty sleeping and often had to sleep sitting up with three pillows as a result of acid reflux. I slept for a few hours in the afternoon at least once or twice a week because of the severe energy dips. I started taking ProArgi-9+ in August 2011 and am now using the entire V3 system (ProArgi-9+, Mistica, Core Greens). My energy has soared and I can now sleep soundly with a single pillow. I no longer have to sleep during the day, I have energy in the evenings, and I now play 18 holes of golf happily! My life is finally back to normal. Thank you Synergy."

—Auntie Marie

I can no longer live without ProArgi-9+...  Paula Laumatia, USA

"I have been using ProArgi-9+ for almost one year and I can no longer go without it. If you were to ask anyone that knows me, I use to suffer from leg aches for many years -- now I don't! I love ProArgi-9+!"

—Paula Laumatia, USA

It's helping me run faster in my half marathons...  Rita Vigil, USA

"Drinking 8 ounces of ProArgi-9+, 30 minutes prior to working out,will help you burn fat, recover faster, go longer and build muscle AND IT'S ALL NATURAL! It's helping me run faster in my half marathons! San Diego half marathon here I come -- I'm ready for another personal record."

—Rita Vigil, USA

I am amazed at the results I am seeing in my patients...  Mark Gould, USA

"I have been in practice now for over 15 years and this is the one product that I have been most excited about. I am amazed at the results I am seeing in my patients on a daily basis."

—Mark Gould, USA

All-Time World Bench Press record holder...  Jake Prazak, USA

"My name is Jake Prazak from Rock Falls, IA. I am married and have two children, Preston who is 7 and Paige who is 5. I currently hold two all-time historical bench press records – 909 lbs. in the 220 lbs. weight class and 920 lbs. in the 242 lbs. weight class. Below is a rundown of how I was introduced to Synergy WorldWide and ProArgi-9+.

I am constantly attacked by people and vendors who want me to use their product and promote it. I am very skeptical and cautious about any products that people try and push onto me, so when Lance Glawe first walked through my door, I thought, "here we go again".

After talking with Lance I knew he was passionate, knowledgeable, and believed in the product. After our first meeting I told him like I tell every other person who approaches me, "give me your product and I will try it on myself before even thinking about promoting it to somebody else".

I used the product during my training cycle, just before my first world record attempt. During this training cycle I consumed two servings per day. I had a great training cycle right up to my meet and noticed that all my lifts were getting stronger. On the day of the meet, I broke the world record with my first attempt at 909 lbs. My second attempt was even better than my first – I successfully benched 920 lbs. I then called for 936 lbs. on my third and attempt but barely missed it at the top of the lift.

Even though my strength increased and was able to successfully set two bench press records, I still wasn't entirely convinced about ProArgi-9+ - so I decided to test it on another sample of 6 people. While on the product, each of these six people improved their performance and reported how good they felt.

I now recognize that ProArgi-9+ is an incredible product and will continue using it as part of my nutritional regimen. Thank you Synergy for helping me achieve my lifelong goal of achieving an All-Time World Bench Press Record…not one, but two! I also feel the healthiest I have ever felt. Next goal is to be the lightest ever to bench press 1000 lbs!"

—Jake Prazak, USA

Mistica is honestly the best antioxidant product...  Braden Jex, USA

"I have been working at Synergy Worldwide Customer Service for over five years now. This company has been an awesome company to work for, they take very good care of the employees. Working in customer service has been a great job while I have been working towards my undergraduate degree.

I am a believer of our products because I have used them in my life to better my health. My top three favorite products are ProArgi-9+, Mistica, and the Repair Complex. Mistica is honestly the best antioxidant product out there, and is the best immune boosting drink I've ever tried. Everytime I feel like I am getting sick I just drink a glass of Mistica and I am feeling better in no time. E9 runs close behind the Repair Complex as a top favorite. I used E9 on the day I took the MCAT (Medical College Admisison Test) to keep myself awake and alert early in the morning as I took the exam. I have since been accepted to medical school so my time as an employee at Synergy is drawing to a close, but I have made many life-long friends and memories working here at the company."

—Braden Jex, USA

For a busy Mom on the go, I absolutely love the way I feel...  Stephanie Person, USA

"I am Stephanie Person from Chicago, Illinois. I am a proud wife and stay at home Mom. When Synergy came into my life about 6 months ago, I can honestly say I was resistant in taking ProArgi-9+. I thought - I am in my late 20s with 15 years of competitive gymnastics under my belt, why would I take a product for heart health? My heart is healthy!

What I have come to learn is that no one is too old or too young to take ProArgi-9+. At the young age of 28 I already have hardening of the arteries even though I exercise and eat right. For me, supplementation is crucial. I feel SO much better incorporating ProArgi-9+ into my DAILY routine. For a busy Mom on the go, I absolutely love the way I feel!

On the business side, I am so excited for my future with Synergy Worldwide. This allows me to truly put my family first and stay home with my son. Now, my passion is to save the world one heart at a time. Thanks Synergy Worldwide! Can you feel the love? :)"

—Stephanie Person, USA

I'm 51 years old and am the happiest individual in the world...  Willie Kahaialii, USA

"Before I dive into my testimony, ask yourself this question, "How much is my life really worth?" When you look into the eyes of your children, ask yourself, "Am I going to be around when they get married or graduate?" I know these aren't really questions that are important to most people – but when the time comes (and my time has come), you will ask yourself, "Have I really done much to care for the people that I love most? It is said that when a man loses his money – he loses a little, when he loses his home – he's lost a little more, but when he loses his health he has lost EVERYTHING!

Aloha, my name is Willie Kahaialii, aka Willie K. With this product testimonial I want to say that I will put 1000% of my career on the line to have anybody prove me wrong!

For the past three solid years, I have been living with chronic pain in my joints. As an entertainer you have to be on your best performance at all times. During this time I was not a pleasant person to talk to. I was always grumpy or very uncomfortable with people, never giving them the time of day. I didn't respect my place of work or give it my all in each of my stage performances. I constantly walked with a cane and sometimes had to walk with a pair of crutches. Imagine living like this and touring around the world where you have no one to help or comfort you.

I, like many others in similar situations, was looking for a remedy of any kind that did not require a doctor's prescription. I searched the internet and stumbled on a few options. I tried them; hoping they'd provide some relief, however, they only cushioned the situation, rather than helping remedy the actual problem. I have tried the top brands both in and out of network marketing, but they have all failed. Little by little I found myself staying away from network marketing companies, finding my credit bills were piling up – along with my health deteriorating due to the stress.

A few years ago I started a festival here in Hawaii and was using a particular product – hoping to relieve the severe join pain I suffered – but it didn't work, as I was forced to continue relying on my cane to walk. Come 2011, for the next festival, the emergency medical team for my martial arts tournament approached me and asked if I had heard about ProArgi-9+? Of course I said no. He told me that he had given some to my brother and wondered why no one had called me about it. He proceeded to tell my how this product had helped his energy level went through the roof and that he had even lost weight. Now, if you're asking, "Was I questioning the sales pitch?" you bet I was! But what caught my attention was that he also mentioned the product enhanced the cardiovascular system by improving circulation through the arteries. With that, my bat ears stood up and he caught my full attention.

I was sold and wanted to know more. So I gave him my personal email and later he provided me with a website where I could go learn more about this product, the science behind it, information on the Nobel Prize, and video testimonies of people who used the product, ALL WHO WERE LOCAL ISLANDER PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF! I said ok, I have to at least try this one more time. I later made the call, which was the best thing I have ever done for myself – the greatest phone call in the world.

The first week of trying ProArgi-9+, I started getting up from bed early. The day after that first week, I ended up landscaping my entire yard! My energy level was like a space shuttle, I had to go somewhere, do something! I'm an artist, so I started creating songs, coming up with new ideas for my business, making phone calls to anyone that needed help with anything. My aloha level went 150% above normal. At the end of every performance people would say, "You are the greatest, happiest entertainer we've ever seen." My lifestyle changed quickly – I used to smoke, but now I have no desire to light up. Even drinking coffee was an obsession and now I've eliminated that, I mean why would I need coffee? ProArgi-9+ already gives me the wakeup call I need!

Six weeks ago I weighed 345 pounds. Now I'm down to 320lbs (change of diet has also contributed to this). I'm training again. I remember three years ago I tried to train, only to find myself bed-ridden for a week because of the severe joint pain. I was only benching 135lbs and couldn't do that without any pain inflicted the next day. Now, within six weeks, I'm benching 195lbs, I dead lift 300lbs, and curl 75lbs!!! I'm not saying this product gave me super powers, it just gave me the soul cleansing that I needed to get back to what I use to do when I was 18 years old!

I'm 51 years old and am the happiest individual in the world! People watch me run upstairs, doing 2 hour shows and not being tired at the end of the evening. A lot of miracles are happening to me and I'm just getting started. Believe me when I say this, there is always room to change your life – as long as you have faith within yourself – the choice is yours."

—Warmest Aloha, Willie K, USA

ProArgi-9+ has turned my life around...  Margaret Baldock, USA

"ProArgi-9+has turned my life around. My doctor was very supportive when I started taking ProArgi-9+ and as he took me off my pharma drug for the pain in my foot from arthritis. He is encouraged that I have absolutely no more pain and can participate in dance exercise to get back into shape. I am grateful to my family for caring enough to share this wonderful natural product."

—Margaret Baldock, USA

My cardio workouts went from 20 minutes to an entire hour...  Shantel Schmidek, Canada

"Synergy has let me workout again! I was hardly able to do cardio the last few years -- I would get super tired and it felt like I could barely breath. I barely played sports or workout because I was frustrated. ProArgi-9+ Active has let me workout harder than I have ever been able to do. It took my cardio workouts from 20 minutes to an entire hour! It makes me WANT to workout -- I have 8 more days left of my 30/30 challenge at the gym and will keep going after that. I feel so much better now and have so much more energy! Thanks Synergy for letting me do something I love again!! 2012 - the best year ever!"

—Shantel Schmidek, Canada

I was told I could never run, swim, or play basketball again...  Phil Hickman, USA

"At the age of 58 I was faced with two significant events that greatly impacted my cardiovascular health. Grateful to be alive, my doctors warned me that I would never run, swim or play basketball ever again - my heart "could not support the physical exertion," they said.

Over the course of the next 8 years, I slowly put their warning to the test. My love for physical activity and the need to improve my cardiovascular health was now a huge priority. I had tried multiple supplements, hoping to find a natural support for my heart as I began exercising. Regardless of the many supplements I tried, I never seemed to notice any real difference.

As the years progressed, I slowly incorporated running, biking, and swimming into my workouts - but only on an individual basis, never trying to do more than one activity in a single day or week - at least until I was introduced to ProArgi-9+.

Three months ago Lorin Leavitt told me about ProArgi-9+. Thinking I had nothing to lose, I immediately tried the product.

Last year I was able to complete a 32.5 mile bike ride, which was a huge accomplishment. However, my goal for this year was to hit 40 miles. The first day I took ProArgi-9+ was amazing! I felt so good that I thought I'd try a mini sprint triathlon. That day I completed a 500 meter swim, 3 mile run, and 15 mile bike ride. I was amazed at how good I felt!

In fact, two days later, I decided to try another bike ride - this time instead of riding 32.5 - I completed the 40 miles! Two days following my bike ride I completed a second mini sprint triathlon, swimming 1000 meters, running 2 miles, and biking 11 miles! I honestly couldn't believe my energy levels and how my body recovered after these workouts.

If that wasn't enough, three days after my second mini sprint triathlon, I decided to hop on my bike again. However, this time I didn't ride 40 miles - instead I rode 50!

I can honestly say that ProArgi-9+ has done amazing things for my health. My heart has never felt better and I'm doing things that I, nor my doctors, would have ever thought possible eight years ago.

My new goal for 2012 has now been increased to a 60 mile bike ride! I'll definitely keep you posted!"

I've discovered that PA9+ is amazing...  Bob Matheson

"I've discovered that ProArgi-9+ is amazing and is one of the best things that I have done for myself. I have had cardiovascular health challenges for the past 30 years and within a couple of months of taking PA-9+ my doctor and myself have seen a dramatic improvement in my energy, circulation and most importantly the improvement of my cardiovascular well being. I am truly grateful for this product and am sharing with family and friends."

I've lost 25 lbs in just 3 months...  Roxanne Seely, USA

"I am so excited, after just 3 months of daily workouts and watching my food portions, as well as my twice daily consumption of the wonderful and tasty Maximum Protein, I am thrilled to share that I have lost 25 pounds. Maximum Protein is delicious and very filling as well as loaded with protein. It makes me feel satisfied. I also LOVE the ProArgi9 Active. It gives me the stamina to complete my workout and I know it has contributed to my ability to get myself out of bed every morning to head to the gym. If you haven't tried either of these products...what are you waiting for? Stay tuned because this is only the beginning."

Synergy's V3 has changed my life forever...  Bart Woodcook, USA

I'm so excited about being part of the biggest cause-driven opportunity on the planet!"

It's been like getting a new lease on life...  Robert Wischmeier, USA

"Last weekend, my wife Bonnie and I, along with a close friend, packed and moved my daughter and her family 250 hard miles to her new home. It was a cold, windy, difficult move. We packed, drove and unpacked everything in the same day, finishing late that night. Here's the thing—I'll be 60 in a couple of weeks, but my energy, strength, endurance, stamina, and attitude never slowed down all day long! I looked over at my sweet wife of 38 years and we just smiled at each other. We were tired of course, but we got the work done. No soreness, no stiffness, no backache or tired legs the next day. We have been taking ProArgi-9+ now for over 2 years now, and it's been like getting a new lease on life. It is a joy to share it with others! Thanks to Synergy for sharing it with us, and most especially, thanks to John and Karen Hewlett for their care and concern for all of us in the Lake Como Heart Institute group. Bless you!"

Age is only a number...  Dennis Kelly, USA

With over 34 years of experience in several styles of martial arts, Dennis Kelly has earned the rights to be called "Grand Master Kelly" in the world of martial arts. At the ripe young age of 73, Master Kelly is an 11-time national champion and 5-time world champion in the martial arts arena.

Currently rated number two in the world and the oldest man to ever achieve this status, Grand Master Kelly understands the importance of healthy living and unleashing the power from within. "Age is only a number," says Master Kelly, "and inside each of us lays a champion."
As a young man Kelly, as he prefers to be called, was faced with multiple obstacles to overcome. Bombarded by an unstable home life, an abusive alcoholic father, and low self-esteem, Kelly spent much of his youth just trying to get through each day. In his early twenties, after two decades of zero support and ridicule, Kelly decided it was time to prove everyone wrong.

Over the next 25+ years Kelly went from being labeled a "failure" to a complete success in nearly every realm he competed in, from ballroom dance to now, a world champion martial artist at the age of 73.

The power of the mind is essential, however proper nutrition is vital when it comes to competing. When introduced to ProArgi-9+ in 2009, Master Kelly immediately noticed a difference in his physical output and recovery. "I noticed within a few days after using ProArgi-9+ that I was able to increase my workout time by an hour and my recover time after a hard 3-hour workout at the gym was much quicker," says Kelly. "My strength with the weights also increased by 20% the first week and up to 30% by the third week."

Amongst his many certifications, Kelly is also a certified sports nutritionist. "I have been researching for years all the information on Nutritional Science I can find and in my opinion, ProArgi-9+ and ProArgi-9+ Active are the most scientifically advanced products of its kind."

In fact, Kelly attributes the effectiveness of ProArgi-9+ Active to his ability to perform at a recent Pan American International Karate Championship. "I know without a shadow of doubt that the combination of ProArgi-9+ Active and ProArgi-9+ contributed to my best performance of the year." During this competition, Grand Master Kelly placed second all while competing against 14 other men 20 years younger than he.

It sounds cliché, but ProArgi-9+ saved my life...  Cindy Solomon, USA

"After hearing this from so many people, it starts to sound cliché, but I'm saying it anyway – PROARGI-9+ SAVED MY LIFE!!!

For six years, I was riddled with serious health concerns as a result of a very poor immune system. Due to a very demanding and stressful career, along with some family trauma, my body was simply not strong enough to provide the immune protection I needed. I was spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars per month on supplements and nothing was working. My friend, and soon thereafter sponsor, introduced me to ProArgi-9+, and I thought, "What do I have to lose?"

I took 4 scoops/day for the first week, 3 scoops/day for the second week, and then 2 scoops /day thereafter. After three weeks my health concerns disappeared AND ever since they have not resurfaced!!! That was 6 months ago – and I will continue taking ProArgi-9+ for the rest of my life. I no longer spend hundreds of dollars on supplements – ProArgi-9+ is the only one I need. In the meantime, my circulation has improved – which has been validated by both me and my doctor! I am a true believer in that miracle molecule – nitric oxide! My wish is that the entire world discovers it as well!"

ProArgi-9+ has done amazing things for me and my health...  Sandy Schmidek, Canada

"My name is Sandy Schmidek, I live in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada. ProArgi-9+ has done amazing things for me and my health – a lot of which I can't say for health claim/compliant reasons. With all my health concerns, I decided I needed to find something I could take that would be natural that wouldn't affect my heart, my liver, and help get my memory back the way it was. My husband started looking and a freind of his introduced us to a product called ProArgi-9+. This product has Changed everything in my life. After taking ProArgi-9+ for 4 ½ months, my doctor was amazed at my progress and continues to me amazed. Also, for the last 15 years sleeping was nearly impossible at night and would cause me to be in almost a complete daze during the days. Soon after taking ProArgi-9+, my husband noticed I was starting to fall asleep normally – without any sleep aids – and would only wake up once or twice at night, compared to 6-7. I now wake up more rested and relaxed and with so much more energy than I have had in years!

My kids love that I have my health back and I'm able to do things with them again instead of always being tired and having no energy. My husband was so sold on the fact that his wife's health was back, he joined Synergy to Help Impact Thousands of Lives that can change like ours has. This company is incredible and four our family, we have found a company and product we want to share with the world. We are committed to helping people learn more about this company and all the benefits of its great product and together with our team, we will impact thousands of lives. Thanks to Dan Higginson and Synergy for Everything, without this amazing product our lives would never be the same."

After 13 years as a sales rep, Gerri knew that her life had to change, she wanted to do something different. "I knew my prayers were answered with Synergy," says Gerri.

I've had plenty of obstacles, but I never let that stop me."

Little by little Gerri has built a solid and successful business. "I eventually passed the income that I was making, and then my husband's income as well," says Gerri with a smile. "And now he works for me."

Gerri has a passion for helping others and because of Synergy she's now able to help her business partners, her friends, achieve their dreams and goals while doing the same for herself.

Synergy has opened doors for us that we never thought possible...  Dianne & Lorin Leavitt, USA

"Dianne Leavitt was introduced to network marketing in 1989. As a single mother of two little boys and financially destitute, Dianne searched for every way possible to make ends meet. Struggling to keep her head above water, her brother introduced her to a business opportunity in an industry that would forever change her life.

Dianne literally worked day and night – fighting to survive. After just six months, Dianne was making an income greater than she had seen in her entire life. However, after a few years with her first company, she noticed that the fundamental values that make the network marketing industry great were no longer present with that company. "It became very uncomfortable, and I was unable to proceed," states Dianne. "Although it was an excruciating decision, I quit – and I'll tell you, I was scared. I had no idea how long my little family could survive on the savings we had accrued."

Overcome with intense anxiety for the future, Dianne wondered what in the world she had just done. Within ten minutes of her decision, Dianne received a phone call from a close friend telling her about a company called Synergy WorldWide. That same afternoon, she met with Dan Higginson, Synergy CEO & founder. Little to her knowledge at the time, that small meeting on a Thursday afternoon would change her life forever.

Through Synergy WorldWide, Dianne Leavitt has impacted countless lives around the world. Through this opportunity she met Lorin, her dedicated husband, who works tirelessly behind the scenes to make their business work. "Synergy has opened doors for us that we never thought possible," says Dianne. "Synergy has brought our family from the lowest of lows to the highest of highs, and for that I say, on behalf of our entire family, thank you so much Synergy."

Synergy changes lives...  Kati Gammals, Finland

"Synergy not only has top quality products but also has all the important pieces in place if you're looking for extra income and a business opportunity. The founder Dan Higginson has done incredible work with his staff. creating a company which really makes a difference. Synergy changes people's lives.

It has already changed ours. My husband and I have now been taking the Synergy's products for 11 months and results are amazing.

Before I started taking Synergy products I was in good shape because I had done many lifestyle changes and used quality nutritional supplements for years. When I heard about the science behind Synergy's products I realised that many in my family had suffered from serious heart health concerns. "What about me?" I thought, and decided to do everything to support my heart health ♥

After I started taking ProArgi-9+ and Mistify, I decided to quit white sugar and candy. It was extremely easy to keep that decision, I just took more Mistify if I was craving sugar.

During the first few months I got more energy, my muscle mass increased and at the same time I lost 8 kgs (18 lbs). I feel more balanced and I don't have sugar cravings. What a relief!

We also love helping people and Synergy is the dream company for us. The reasons why we chose Synergy are the products which are natural and effective, the highly skilled top management who really care and offer the right tools for you to focus on your work and succeed, the company culture which is open and supportive and the compensation plan which is based on team work and includes 100% Mega-Match, Legacy Retreats to exotic locations, etc.

We feel so privileged to be part of Synergy and are so excited to share this knowledge around the world ♥ This is just the beginning! Thank you ♥"

Synergy is my retirement program...  Betsy Smith, USA

"I have been in this industry for about 7 years and have always appreciated the flexibility it gives me as a single mom. Even though my kids are grown now, I love that I can spend time with them when I want to. And can work wherever I am.

I was with Rain Nutrition which merged with Synergy (bringing our SOUL and RUSH products here) and I feel more and more grateful every day as I have gotten to know Dan Higginson, Dan Norman, Stewart Rutter and Tyler Rippy from corporate. Being part of a company with integrity is extremely important to me!

And the support I get from my new Synergy team is amazing! As part of such a dynamic team....people who know where they are going and a plan to take Synergy to a billion dollar company, I feel as though boot camp is over and I am in the right place to FLY!

Synergy is my retirement program and it is a business that I can never imagine retiring from! I LOVE every day.

I also love the products...I have taken Soul for well over 2 years and it keeps me feeling GREAT. I play a lot of tennis and am very active and I never have achy knees and other pains that so many people I play tennis with are frequently complaining about. Also, I just don't get sick! I just feel that my immune system is working perfectly.

And since adding ProArgi-9+ in the last 5 months I have noticed that I sleep more deeply, with dreams. And my already high energy is at a new level. In addition, heart disease runs in my family and I am grateful that I can take PA9+ every day to help me stay young and active!"
—Betsy Smith, USA

We're so thankful to be a part of such an awesome company...  Traci Reuter, USA

"I became part of the Synergy family this past summer when Rain Nutrition joined forces with Synergy. We loved the Rain products and we excited to add Synergy's awesome products to the mix! I love Pro-Argi9 for the prevention as I've had many family members die at an early age from CVD.

The thing that blesses my heart the most is this business and what it means to our family. From October to December of 2011, my husband had 4 brain surgeries for Parkison's disease. (The products have helped his recovery and he's doing great) Because I am a full time Synergy Team Member, I was able to put him and his needs first without worrying. I can't imagine what we would have done if we didn't have such an awesome business like Synergy.

Thank you Dan Higginson, Stewart Rutter, Tyler Rippy, Dan Norman, Howard Hannemann, Mark Comer & Marty Holker!

We're so thankful to be a part of such an awesome company! The best is yet to come!"

It gives me great pride to belong to the Synergy family...  Ben Magalei, Japan

"I have been part of the Synergy family for six years and can say that I love this company and its products. I have been blessed to witness countless lives that have been changed because of our unparalleled opportunity. I love Synergy because it has allowed me to fulfill a promise that I had made to my mother.

Wherever you see Synergy, you will also see Leave a Legacy. This is our philosophy and our soul. When our founder, Dan Higginson, told me that his dream was to allow ALL those that join the Synergy family to leave their legacy and to bless lives, he opened a door for me to realize a dream that my mother had for me.

My Mom is half Japanese and half "a lot of other nationalities", including Polynesian. She was adopted as a baby by a Samoan family that loved her and raised her in the Polynesian culture. My siblings and I were raised Polynesian, my father being Samoan and my mother being raised as a Samoan. However, my mother never forgot her Japanese roots and kept a very sacred respect and love for Japan and the Japanese people.

Starting at a young age, my mother would always tell me, "Son, you remember that you are also Japanese. One day you will do great things in Japan." This later became a promise that I made to her, although I did not understand it at the time.

In my life, I have had multiple opportunities to live in Japan and to serve the Japanese people. However, these past six years with Synergy has allowed me to really understand what my mother meant when she said, "One day you will do great things in Japan." It has been an honor to partner with wonderful people that have the same soul, not only to share health and wealth, but to also leave the world a better place. With Synergy WorldWide, we are doing this throughout the world. It gives me great pride to belong to the Synergy family."

The caring, sharing, support of the people is truly unique...  Martha Neitz

"Synergy is one of the most profound experiences in my life. The caring, sharing, support of the people, and most of all – the amazing product this company offers, is truly unique. Why? Because the product works, changes lives, and provides the solid foundation for the most integrity-filled company I have ever experienced.

The win-win, no hype, caring philosophy of Synergy breaks down cultural and political barriers and demonstrates the best of capitalism. The opportunity is equal for everyone – only the results are not guaranteed. Personal effort and accountability make Synergy a life-enhancing experience – regardless of the outcome!"
—Martha Neitz

Synergy has inspired me to live a healthier lifestyle...  Tommy Bethards, USA

"About 4 months ago I was 260 pounds. I exercised very little and ate pretty much whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I was always tired and lacked the energy for any recreation with my family. I knew it was time to make a lifestyle change.

A few of us got together at Synergy and decided to make a challenge to eat healthier and live a more active lifestyle. As you can imagine, it wasn't easy at first. I found it difficult to complete many workouts and having the discipline for portion control was not an easy task.

I decided to give ProArgi-9+ Active a try and was amazed at the results. I had the energy and desire to get to the gym and the stamina and endurance to complete my workouts. I've been able to make the lifestyle changes I wanted and have lost 50 pounds since September 1, 2011. I'm grateful for Synergy and how it has given me the motivation to live a healthier and happier life."
—Tommy Bethards, USA

Synergy promotes life by their philosophy...  Yency Hill, USA

"Your life isn't as secure as you think if you live like the dying. Believing that basic sustenance - store bought, restaurant, or fast food only diet - will give you the framework to be healthy. It takes an awareness of how to be healthy, LONG TERM. Better food choices, lifestyle integrity, and respect for your environment. It will also require you to supplement your diet with pure, safe nutrition to compensate for what our commercial food supply lacks. Synergy has gotten the competition beat in the quality department and that translates to better health, safer involvement, and increased confidence in your ability to remain healthy longer. Synergy promotes life not only by their product standards, but by their philosophy."
