Synergy WorldWide Inc. (Synergy), a subsidiary of Nature’s Sunshine Products (Nature’s Sunshine) (NASDAQ: NATR), alongside The Impact Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, presented a check for $25,000 to Primary Children’s Hospital March 19, 2021.

Additionally, Synergy opened a direct donation line for individuals, including employees and customers, to donate an amount of their choice.

As an essential vitamin, Synergy’s Vitamin D3 is one of the most useful nutritional tools we have available. Working with your body’s numerous biological functions, vitamin D3 helps ensure maximum calcium absorption for a strong skeletal system.
When you purchase any Synergy heart health products, including Vitamin D3, we’ll donate 5% of the purchase to The Heart Center at Primary Children’s Hospital. Help us share the gift of heart health this month.
THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN
The human body is equipped with the amazing ability to synthesize vitamin D3 through exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. However, many people today are lacking in their daily dose of sunlight due to indoor living and excessive sunscreen. Like a ray of sunshine, Synergy’s vitamin D3 provides the perfect amount of this essential nutrient to ensure a greater state of overall health. Vitamin D3 also helps bolster muscle metabolism and function, so your heart can get an extra measure of healthy love at the same time.
CALCIUM AND MINERALIZATION
Of the many roles vitamin D3 fulfills in the body, one of the most important is to enable calcium absorption. As such, the body is unable to digest calcium without adequate levels of D3. Insufficient levels of calcium can then lead to osteoporosis and eventually bone loss. Vitamin D3 also works to promote bone mineralization in the body, helping support your skeletal structure— there’s no bones about it.
VITAMIN D3 BENEFITS
Provides 2500 IU of Vitamin D3 per tablet
Helps maintain normal levels of calcium in the blood
Helps maintain bone health and mineralization
Helps support a healthy immune system
Facilitates calcium absorption in the body to support a healthy skeletal system
Support healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular function with Metabolic LDL. This unique and powerful herbal formula helps modulate cholesterol oxidation to maintain optimum circulatory performance and overall heart health.
This month, when you purchase Metabolic LDL or any Synergy heart health products, we’ll donate 5% of the purchase to The Heart Center at Primary Children’s Hospital! Help us make an impact as you enjoy supporting heart health.
Metabolic LDL combines Citrus bergamia Risso extract with a proprietary blend of high-ORAC antioxidants that help support total cholesterol and triglyceride levels already in the normal range. It works in part by blocking an enzyme the liver needs to produce LDL cholesterol. This balance of Citrus bergamia fruit extract and antioxidants naturally supports healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels, yielding a wonderfully effective formulation for cardiovascular health.
POWER OF BERGAMOT
While Bergamot Fruit Extract (Citrus bergamia Risso) is technically a member of the orange family, it more closely resembles a lime or lemon with a bumpy outer peel that ranges from pale green to yellow. Grown along the southern coast of Italy, our bergamot fruit is bursting with a unique blend of polyphenols, otherwise known as naturally occurring antioxidants, that help locate and detoxify free radicals in the body.
METABOLIC LDL BENEFITS
Modulates oxidation of LDL cholesterol
Supports healthy cholesterol levels
Features a powerful, proprietary antioxidant blend
You love your heart. You know it’s important—but do you know what to feed it? Fueling your body’s engine with proper nutrition doesn’t have to be rocket science. This February, in honor of Heart Health Month, take a little extra time and fuel your body with better nutrition. Trust us, you’ll feel better than ever and your heart will appreciate the extra effort. Here are a few heart-healthy suggestions to make your favorite meals more cardio-conscious:
ADD SOME GREENS
Vegetables are always on the table when it comes to heart health, and some pack a healthier punch than others. Dark, leafy greens like spinach and kale are filled with heart healthy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They’re also a great source of vitamin K, which can help protect your arteries and improve cardiovascular health. Channel your inner Popeye and include spinach in your next meal. A little can go a long way.
SKIP THE SUGARS
Okay, this may be difficult. Yes, we know sugar makes things sweet. But can your recipe work with Stevia? Some natural honey or maple syrup will also help maintain your sweetness without the high sugar content. It could be worth a try. Sugar, fructose, corn syrup… these are not heart-healthy ingredients. Substitute when possible and your heart will thank you.
GRAINS FOR THE VEINS
When you have to eat carbs, remember that diets rich in fiber are more preferable than refined white breads and pastas. When it comes to combatting high blood pressure and supporting your overall heart health, choose fibrous whole grains. At the very least, try swapping out half the amount of all-purpose flour with whole-wheat flour. Better yet, try almond-flour! You can also change up refined white rice for whole grain rice or opt for a more complex grain like quinoa.
SUBS FOR SALT
Sodium has a big impact on heart health, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo flavor. Instead, try adding a splash of vinegar or a squeeze of fresh lime to your food. You can also give your favorite dishes an update with a dash of new spices and herbs. Feel free to experiment and test out new flavors, you never know when you’ll create something incredible.
Jumpstart your energy levels and fuel your heart with Synergy’s CoQ10. As an all-natural compound, our CoQ10 provides biological energy support for most vital organs— including your heart. WHAT IS COQ10?CoQ10, formally known as Coenzyme Q10, is an oil-soluble vitamin-like compound found in every cell of the human body. Our CoQ10 is an all-natural, crystal-free compound that uses a patented lipid blend to enhance its bioavailability and absorption in the human body, providing an adequate supply of energy to your body’s most important muscle–your heart. LIVING FUNCTIONSEach system encompasses different cells, tissues, and organs that all require a supply of energy—or ATP—for optimal function. Within these vast networks, ATP or energy is delivered after its successful production within the body. Although much of the body’s energy is derived from components found in natural food sources, organs with greater energy requirements have an increased need for high concentrations of CoQ10. Taking a CoQ10 supplement can help fulfill that demand. COQ10 BENEFITS
Helps to reduce oxidative stress in all cells throughout the body
Supports the health of the heart, kidneys, liver, and pancreas
Promotes healthy cardiovascular function and general longevity
Supports energy production for the heart and other organs requiring high levels of ATP or energy
This month, when you purchase CoQ10, you’re helping support one of the best health care organizations in Utah— Primary Children’s Hospital (PCH). Throughout February, Synergy will be donating 5% of proceeds from all our heart health products to The Heart Center at PCH. Help us give back to an organization that already gives so much, and share the gift of heart health today. GET YOUR COQ10 TODAY
Every moment, every day of your life, your heart works to support everything your body does. That is some serious heavy lifting from an organ and a muscle that never gets a break. Beating around 100,000 times a day, your heart pumps 2,000 gallons worth of blood through a microscopic blood vessel system that totals 60,000 miles in length. This month, give your heart a helping hand and strengthen it with a cardiovascular exercise routine.
Studies have shown that simply doing 30-40 minutes of exercise a day can improve your overall health and wellness, while also having a positive impact on your heart. This includes both aerobic and anaerobic exercises. So, what’s the difference? Let’s break it down.
AEROBIC Aerobic exercise focuses on elevating and then consistently maintaining your heart rate for an extended period. This type of fitness has a direct impact on your circulatory system, as it engages your lungs, heart, and large muscle groups for a substantial amount of time. Running, hiking, and swimming are all categorized under aerobic exercise.
ANAEROBICAnaerobic exercise focuses on strengthening your muscles with short, but intense, workouts. Also known as resistance training, these bursts of activity help build your cardiovascular endurance and overall heart health, as they push you to perform at your maximum in short, timed periods. Examples of this include sprinting, jumping, or weightlifting.
Both types of exercise provide a variety of benefits for your health and wellness. Your fitness goals can help you determine the best type of workouts to participate in; however, a little cardio goes a long way. Be sure to start slow and build up to the level your body is comfortable with. This month, work a little harder to give your heart a helping hand. Strengthen the organ that never stops working for you, with an increased level of cardiovascular fitness.
Heart Health Month is here, and we’re kicking off our product spotlights with a fan favorite, ProArgi-9+. Known as “the world’s highest quality l-arginine supplement,” ProArgi-9+ has become an international best-seller for its abilities to support cardiovascular function, build the body’s defenses, and more.
POWERFUL INGREDIENT LINE-UPProArgi-9+ is packed with a potent array of ingredients including l-arginine, l-citrulline, and vitamin C. During clinical studies, The Hughes Center for Research and Innovation found that the unique, synergistic combination of ProArgi-9+ ingredients can “significantly and rapidly increase” the body’s production of nitric oxide—a vital component to maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. REVOLUTIONARY SCIENCE Built upon Nobel Prize-winning science, ProArgi-9+ enhances the body’s ability to convert the l-arginine amino acid into nitric oxide to help support healthy circulatory and cardiovascular function. This rapid production of nitric oxide can inhibit myeloperoxidase, leading to lower levels of oxidized LDL cholesterol. UPARALLELED BENEFITS
