The winners of the 2013 Top 50 Challenge enjoyed a well-deserved Cancun vacation earlier this month. Each winner, along with one invited guest, spent a few days at the Moon Palace Golf & Spa resort where they enjoyed warm temperatures, delicious food, a variety of activities and the company of fellow Team Members. It is an honor to reward these determined business builders for their achievements of last year.
Remember, this year’s Top 50 Challenge is going on now. Reservations and arrangements are in the works for a new vacation destination that will be announced very soon!

This Friday’s Open House is primed to be one of our best yet. Based on feedback from many who attended January’s Open House, we have decided to again follow the new format featuring a powerful panel of speakers and trainers along with the guided tours.
January’s event hosted one of our biggest ever Open House crowds. These wonderful guests heard from a panel of speakers that included Double Presidential Executive Dianne Leavitt and Presidential Executives Rudy Pedroza and Paul Blad among others. These three accomplished business builders will be joining us again this weekend to share proven advice and their own impressive Synergy stories.
For the first time in 2014, this weekend’s event will also feature Synergy FounderDan Higginson as a special presenter. Come hear about the beginnings of this company directly from the person who started it all! You’ll also hear about the mission of Synergy and the vision for our future. Learn how one of Forbe’s magazine’s 100 “Most Trustworthy” companies builds and maintains this honorable reputation.
OPEN HOUSE DETAILS Date: Friday, March 28 at 1:00 Cost: FREE Time: 1:00 PM sharp. Location: The Open House begins with a tour of our manufacturing facility located at 1655 N Main St Spanish Fork, UT 84660. Please be on time.
Following the manufacturing facility tour, attendees will return to Synergy’s corporate offices to tour our headquarters, sample our products and hear from our Executive Team and guest speakers.
GOLD CAMP SEATS AVAILABLE
Good news for those who have not yet registered for the March 29 Synergy Gold Camp: there are still 12 seats available for Team Members seeking an elite network marketing education. As this event takes place the day after our Open House, we are confident that the time you invest in this weekend’s events will be of great benefit to your business and your income.
Currently, the winners of the 2013 Top 50 Challenge are enjoying a Mexican beach in mid-80 degree weather. Synergy WorldWide is happily picking up the tab for each of them, plus their one invited guest. It is an honor to reward these determined business builders for what they achieved last year.
Remember, this year’s Top 50 Challenge is going on now. Reservations and arrangements are in the works for a new vacation destination that will be announce very soon! Watch below as a few of your fellow Team Members encourage you from the shores of Cancun to set your sights on winning the 2014 Top 50 Challenge:
Along with the Top 50 Challenge, another one of this year’s important promotions was mentioned by the wonderful Pamela Krajnik. She just earned her second consecutive Personal Activity Bonus (PAB), one of two monthly bonuses in the Activity Bonus Program. Not only is she earning extra cash, but Pamela is building correct habits and developing powerful network marketing skills.
Whenever a Team Member earns a monthly PAB and DAB (Duplication Activity Bonus), their potential for a skyrocketing Mega-Matched residual income significantly increases. Synergy WorldWide joins Pamela and others in encouraging you to earn these bonuses and set the foundation for limitless earnings.
Curious how the challengers are doing? It’s been just over one month since Synergy Founder Dan Higginson and President Dan Norman made a friendly weight-loss wager, and we are still well over a month away from the Business Builder Conference where the final weigh-in will take place. Who seems to be winning so far? Who is switching their typical breakfast to Health Shake? This video sent from Dan Higginson’s cell phone may provide the answer:
As you can see, Mr. Higginson is not messing around. Using an arsenal of Synergy products to amplify his efforts, he claims to have lost 26.5 pounds of fat. He’s looking more slim, sounding confident, and may just have a win coming his way. He seems to be exercising regularly which will definitely speed-up his smart-switch results. In fact, Dan’s wife Suzanna was good enough to send another video our way, proving further that Dan is walking the walk (or running the run?):
At an impressive pace, Mr. Higginson seems to be taking $1000 out of Dan Norman’s pocket.
Then again, Dan Higgison is on his way to Cancun, joining North America’s Top 50 Team Members of 2013. Starting tomorrow, they’ll be enjoying a resort together that provides food, fun and more food. Will he remember to pack his SLMsmart Health Shake? Will he be able to say “no” to the sugary drinks and endless snacks? Will he be listening to Bon Jovi on the resort treadmills or just mariachi music on a poolside lounge chair?
This may be Dan Norman’s chance to pull ahead. Mr. Norman has reportedly lost 15 pounds. Though this is significantly less than his competition, he’ll be home this weekend, far away from tempting buffets, safely close to scoops of Health Shake.
On top of that, Dan Norman has not lost confidence. Not once has he declared defeat. In fact, after watching these videos, his response was a simple smile and the words “I’m not worried.”
How is your personal Smart Switch Challenge going? Are you still drinking Health Shake instead of a typical breakfast? Maybe you’ve been switching your lunch to Health Shake also? Don’t forget to tell us about it! Submit your Smart Switch Challenge forms to tell your story, and you will be put in the running for big prizes from Synergy WorldWide. On top of that, you’ll be on a track to healthy, maintainable weight-loss that brings a world of rewards your way.
Director of Sales Howard Hannemann will be hosting our monthly Corporate Update Call hours before he boards a plane to Mexico. Join the call to listen as Howard is joined by Synergy FounderDan Higginson and other special guests. Together they will discuss the latest important news from Synergy WorldWide.

From now until April 15, you can benefit from the power of green fusion and 35 time-honored herbs with our Go Green Promotion! Featuring Core Greens, our invigorating, pH balancing green fusion formula, and Body Cleanse, a naturally-gentle blend of herbs designed to rid your body of the waste and toxins that build up as a result of poor diet and environment. Click Here to OrderAbout Core Greens The Core Greens formula consists of an important blend of greens including wheat grass, barley grass, kamut grass, and oat grass. These cereal grasses contain an extraordinarily wide range of potent plant compounds, including antioxidants, phytonutrients, and flavonoids–all noted for their ability to strengthen, protect and nourish the body. The American diet often consists mostly of red meat and dairy products. This kind of food constitutes an acidic diet, and too many acids can adversely affect the major body systems. Greens can provide an alkalizing effect and help you successfully follow a pH balancing regimen. Core Greens is the only greens product you’ll ever need. The capsule form makes it easy and convenient to get the vitamins and minerals your body requires. Take the capsules with one liter of water to feel fresh, invigorated, and hydrated. Other benefits include:
Phytonutrients provide powerful health-protective benefits
Antioxidants combat free radicals and help counter cell damage
Chlorophyll enhances immunity and protects cells
Green Fusion Technology harnesses the power of the sun
Brings you the green fire of photosynthesis in an easily digestible form

Body Cleanse capsule and tablets are composed of 35 herbs that have each been approved by the German Commission E, the world’s leading authority on herbal supplementation.

The SLMsmart Health Shake packs an important, powerful blend of three proteins that each release at different intervals of digestion. This post will focus on one of those important proteins: Soy.
People have been eating soybeans for millennia, particularly in many Asian countries where soy is an important part of the diet. Soy protein offers many health benefits.
A Complete Protein
Soy is a complete protein, which means that it contains all of the amino acids required for growth and development. And, in soy, these amino acids are readily bioavailable. The quality of a given protein is rated using a method called “Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score” (PDCAAS). The PDCAAS score rates proteins for their amino acid content and the body’s ability to digest and absorb those amino acids. The highest possible score is a 1, meaning that after digestion the protein source provides 100% or more of the essential amino acids per unit of protein. Soy protein has a PDCAAS of 1. By comparison beef protein has a score of 0.92, black beans, 0.75 and peanuts, 0.52.
Soy protein has been shown to benefit the circulatory system. To whit:
Since 1999, the FDA has allowed the claim stating that 25 grams of soy protein per day is associated with a lower risk of coronary heart disease. Substituting soy protein for animal protein can lower blood levels of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol.
Researchers from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine found that a daily 40 gram allotment of soy protein was associated with significant reductions in e-selectin and leptin, two biomarkers of inflammation associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease1.
Soy protein contains isoflavones, phytoestrogens that bind to estrogen receptors in the body. Isoflavones exhibit both estrogen-promoting and estrogen-inhibiting activity. Much of the research on soy protein revolves around the action of isoflavones in the body.
Population studies suggest that soy consumption is associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer2 and may help protect against hormonally regulated cancer3.
Soy isoflavones are reported to reduce menopause symptom4,5.
Soy isoflavones appear to modestly protect against bone loss in women6.
Isoflavones offer a protective benefit to men in the form of reducing the risk of prostate cancer7.
Soy in Synergy Products
Synergy manufactures and rigorously tests its own products. Additionally, our Quality Assurance team does independent audits of every Soy vendor that sends us raw material. We check to make sure the source of soy is sanitary,safe and abiding by correct practices. Then, every batch of soy that comes through the doors of our manufacturing facility goes through many tests where we look for harmful chemicals, radiation, impurities, dangerous modifications and more.
Anyone seeking to get the benefits of soy into their diet should choose Synergy products as the safest source. To learn more about our commitment to safety, purity and quality, click here.
