Elite Honors Spotlight: Nick & Penny Neufeld

elitehonors-spotlightsMonth 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.

Nick and Penny Neufeld, Stars from British Columbia, Canada, understand what it means to be busy. Caring for and homeschooling seven children is a full-time job on its own, however, Nick has a full-time job as a general contractor, and both Nick and Penny make time every day to kindle their Synergy business. Chuck Pinnell introduced Synergy to Nick and Penny, and they finally got involved in the business after noticing the real and impactful effects that Synergy products were having on a handful of their immediate family members’ lives. Once friends and family began to notice differences in the Neufeld household’s health, they started asking questions. Synergy product orders followed from people in their neighborhood, people Nick works with, and people at church.
As new Synergy distributors, Nick and Penny have latched onto the Elite Honors concept because it gives them a straightforward approach in monthly goal setting. In October, the couple became Elite Honors qualified and earned a Go Elite bonus! They will continue working toward Elite Honors qualification each month to help them reach the Bronze title.

“Chuck Pinnell is an incredible mentor and has been in network marketing for years, so we feel fortunate to have him on our side. He introduced Elite Honors to us, but didn’t push it. We were originally worried about joining a network marketing company because I was involved in one before and it was too time consuming. I couldn’t be at home helping with the kids after work because I would go to meeting after meeting. Synergy isn’t this way, though. So far, everything has been attainable, including Elite Honors. Becoming Elite Honors qualified and earning the Go Elite bonus was definitely a goal we set, and it was nice to know it was achievable. I have a new distributor who said the same thing. He loves having small goals to reach for that are already established.

We see the potential with Synergy, and with only one income currently running our household, sharing products we already love to earn a second income seems like the perfect setup. Finding Synergy has been huge for us. We have not only found a great business opportunity, we’ve found products that have changed our home life for the better. Stumbling across ProArgi-9+ and the other Synergy products has been a blessing.”



Synergy Customer Service and the Synergy Store will be closed Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27 for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

Normal business hours will resume on Monday, November 30.

If you have any business that needs to be taken care of with Customer Service, please call earlier in the week. We will do everything we can to accommodate your needs before and after the holiday.

Thank you for your cooperation and Happy Thanksgiving from Synergy headquarters!

Elite Honors Spotlight: Sandra Rangel

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.
Sandra Rangel, a Bronze from Florida, is a medical doctor from Columbia who now practices holistic medicine. After dealing with some of her own medical complications, her views on what it takes to be healthy shifted. While in Finland, Sandra met Emerald Executives Eric and Kati Gammals who introduced her to Synergy. Being a doctor, Sandra knows that the majority of health supplements manufactured today should not be trusted. However, after meeting the brains behind Synergy’s quality and research teams, touring Nature’s Sunshine’s and Synergy’s manufacturing facility, and exploring the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation, she knew Synergy products were different. She has been recommending Synergy products to her clients, friends, and family ever since.

“Eric and Kati challenged me to become Elite Honors Qualified, and I’ve accomplished this challenge two months in a row. They have been great examples to me. I know that if I continue to become Elite Honors Qualified I can build a stable income and live freely. I believe in Synergy products, and by believing in them I am also earning a living and building something bigger. I have a broader vision of what’s possible through Synergy.

I am encouraging others to become Elite Honors Qualified now. I’m telling them there is a way to succeed in this business. I’ve seen the Gammals’ success and made them my mentors. They are leading me and helping me understand the importance of duplication. The goal is to continue qualifying and help others to do the same.”

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.

Cheuntel Kunkler, a Star from California, is a healer who helps people regain their health through natural remedies. She created a wellness program for her clients that includes Synergy products. After changing her poor health around, she found purpose in helping others do the same thing. She turned to nutrition and ingredients that are found in Synergy products to help her on her journey to wellness. Cheuntel has been an entrepreneur for 25 years and a Synergy Team Member for two years.
Due to her background in entrepreneurism, she said she has been introduced to a number of direct selling companies, but found that Synergy WorldWide fit best with her personal beliefs and goals.

Her Synergy business has been primarily focused on bringing in customers, but now that her customers have built a belief in the product, Cheuntel as seen a growing interest in her customers wanting to become distributors.

“My sponsor Bill Muth encouraged me to sign up two distributors in October, so I did both the last day of the month! I work full time and usually do 10-12 massages per day, so I have a lot on my plate, so I rely on the people who come through my studio door to become my customers and distributors. I keep Synergy product in stock in my studio at all times and I get a lot of customers this way. I make my Synergy business part of what I do every day.

I’m driven to help others, and through Elite Honors and the Go Elite Promotion I’m rewarded for helping, which is amazing. I do what I can to help people every day and Synergy is part of my toolbox. I researched Synergy for a long time before signing up. I have high expectations because I’m extremely organic and only purchase products have not been treated with chemicals, but Synergy’s integrity and its products are up to par with my standards.”

Are Synergy Products "Organic"?

Are Synergy Products “Organic”?

When it comes to nutritional supplements, you deserve superior quality. One of the most frequent product questions we answer in our Customer Service department and on our manufacturing tours is, “Are Synergy products organic?”

As many of you may know, the term “organic” refers to a plant growing method that does not use synthetic chemicals. The extensive farm audits and raw material testing our quality control team performs ensures that all of our herbs and raw materials meet organic standards. Because of our strict internal testing, we do not pursue third party organic certification for any of our finished products. The organic certification process is primarily for marketing purposes.

When applicable, our purchasing department will look for organic-certified ingredients. However, several ingredients are not candidates for organic certification. Plants that are wild-crafted are not grown on farms, and hence cannot be certified organic. We obtain several herbs from outside of the U.S., and very few countries outside the U.S. have any kind of standard for organic certification. We only partner with suppliers that meet our strict quality standards. The extensive inspections and audits our teams conduct on each supplier and their products ensures that our herbs meet organic standards.

When you purchase from Synergy WorldWide, you are guaranteed products with no residue from fertilizers, pesticides or other types of contamination.

Remember, if an independent organization has a product with an organic certification, this certification does not necessarily mean the product contains high quality ingredients. Organic items can still be contaminated through water sources unknown to the growers. The real proof is in the testing, which Synergy conducts according to the strictest quality assurance practices in the industry.

You can be sure that we provide the highest quality products with the highest purity standards.

Elite Honors Spotlight: Kent Clark

Elite Honors Spotlight: Kent Clark
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

Hughes Center Makes Groundbreaking ProArgi-9+ Discoveries

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.

Million Dollar Club: Stefan Patrik Kristofferson & Øistein Bekkvang

Million Dollar Club: Stefan Patrik Kristofferson & Øistein Bekkvang

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.
