GRAND OPENING: Hughes Center for Research and Innovation

Friday, February 27, 2015

The Grand Opening of Nature’s Sunshine’s Hughes Center for Research and Innovation commenced February 27, 2015, at Nature’s Sunshine Headquarters where a 5,400 sq. ft. area now houses labs, clinical space and rooms for consultations and clinical studies.

 “The Hughes Center for Research and Innovation is designed to help combat health mega-trends driven by diet and lifestyle choices through natural, nutritionally therapeutic products,” said Gregory L. Probert, Nature’s Sunshine Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Combining our scientists with new technology, we will continue to lead development of effective herbal and nutritional products for consumers worldwide by studying supplement interactions at a molecular level.”

The Hughes Center is one of the most advanced research centers of its kind and is a true signal of Nature's Sunshine's and Synergy’s economic strength. Utah Governor Gary Herbert attended the event to officially open the center and recognize both companies as hugely influential businesses in not only Utah, but also the world.

This multi-million-dollar facility is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation that will allow scientists to analyze interactions between the body’s systems and Synergy WorldWide’s nutritional supplements. By inspecting these interactions at a molecular level, biologists, chemists, and physicians, will be guided to the most bioactive and potent formulations.

“The Hughes Center for Research and Innovation incorporates some of the most advanced technology in the industry,” said Dr. Matthew Tripp, Nature’s Sunshine Chief Scientific Officer. “For example, the Flexmap3D can analyze 500 analytes, such as genes and proteins, from a single human sample, such as a drop of blood. Moreover, with this machine, 144,000 data points can be analyzed in one hour, which provides rapid quantitative analyses of various biomarkers.”

Nature’s Sunshine and Synergy WorldWide are deeply committed to formulating natural, scientifically tested products that the consumer can fully trust.

At Synergy WorldWide, we are serious about proving the quality of our products. The future of Synergy WorldWide is incredibly bright, and we cannot wait to share the groundbreaking research that will be done in this center. The Hughes Center for Research and Innovation truly puts Synergy WorldWide and Nature’s Sunshine Products a step above the rest.

SLM 10 Club Spotlights

Thursday, February 12, 2015

Celebrating Success with SLMsmart

In the first round of Synergy WorldWide’s SLM 10 Club promotion 24 individuals in Europe activated 10 or more people on SLMsmart Activation Packs. When SLMsmart and e9 were launched in September 2014, these individuals took the challenge to share the new products with family, friends and acquaintances, and max out their business potential. We are so proud of each of our Team Members who achieved this great goal and we are excited to see more join the SLM 10 Club in 2015. Click here to learn more about SLMsmart promotions.

Three of our qualifiers shared their SLM 10 Club stories with us, offering insight and inspiration that will help you sponsor more people on SLMsmart packs.


Michele Guardascione
Team Directory, Italy 

Michele Guardascione is no stranger to success. He thrives in competition and loves a great challenge, which is why the SLM10 Club Promotion appealed to him. Not only was he able to help support others to make healthy changes in their lives, he was also able to offer the opportunity to better their financial wellbeing. Through the SLM 10 Club, he increased the number of Team Members in his downline. The effectiveness of the SLMsmart system inspired him to share his personal experiences with others.

“SLMsmart changed me both physically and mentally,” Michele said.

While he’s excited about the opportunities SLMsmart has given him, he’s most passionate about the changes he’s seen in his team and the overwhelmingly positive feedback he’s received. Michele believes he has all the tools he needs to reach his next big goal, rank advancing to Pearl Executive.

“You can only be successful if you enjoy what you do,” he said..


Evelyn Barckhahn
Team Leader, Germany


While Evelyn is a firm believer in the power and convenience of the SLMsmart system, not to mention an avid user, she found that the SLM 10 Club Promotion made it much easier to approach people about Synergy’s weight management line. She’s noticed a dramatic difference in her own life after using SLMsmart’s Meal Replacement.

Her approach is simple. She asks people if they were interested in weight optimization and bodyforming. She also hosted SLMsmart parties where invitees were able to try SLMsmart Meal Replacement in a variety of tasty and easily prepared recipes. When customers were concerned about costs, she let them calculate what it would cost to replace 1-2 meals each day with SLMsmart and allow them to see the amount they would save on their food budget.

The response from her attendees was overwhelmingly positive. They were impressed with the results and the way the SLMsmart system can be tailored to fit any lifestyle. Since the program is customizable, participants are able to design a system that fits their needs and will help them achieve their goals.

When she first started, Evelyn’s younger Team Members weren’t very interested in health. However, she has seen that change.

“The average age in my team is now much younger than before,” Evelyn said.

Her team’s high energy allowed her to dramatically change her business. Sales have increased and Evelyn is looking forward to reaching the next pin level in the coming months. She is eager to continue sharing Synergy’s unique business opportunity with as many people as possible.


Dieter Nagl
Germany

SLMsmart has been causing a stir since its launch in September 2014 and Team Member Dietr Nagl is capitalizing on its success to drive his own business. Since focusing his efforts on the SLMsmart system, he has seen his target audience shift to those concerned with weight management. He is sharing his personal success with a completely new demographic. Dietr said the SLM 10 Club Promotion made it easier to share SLMsmart with others.

The new customers and distributors that Dietr activated on SLMsmart love the great taste and how easy it is to incorporate into their busy lives.  He offers continuous support to his customers who are looking to achieve long-term weight loss goals, helping them stay on track. Overall, his Synergy experience has been amplified by the SLM 10 Club Promotion and he is confident in his business’s future success.

Official Press Release: Nature's Sunshine Reaffirms Commitment to Quality

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Partnering with Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP) was a pivotal moment in Synergy WorldWide’s history. Synergy’s mission to create the highest quality products of its kind was made a reality when this partnership came to fruition. NSP’s unmatched commitment to quality is paralleled in Synergy’s everyday operations. As a company, Synergy couldn’t be more proud of its relationship with NSP and the values this honorable company holds. 

NSP released an official press release on February 6, reinforcing their unwavering promise to produce pure and potent health supplements without justification.


Nature’s Sunshine Products Stands Behind its 42-Year Commitment to Quality 


LEHI, Utah, February 6, 2015 – Nature’s Sunshine Products, Inc. (“NSP”), one of the world’s foremost manufacturers and distributors of premium quality health supplements in the natural health and wellness markets, proudly stands behind its 42-year legacy of quality manufacturing and product excellence. 

A plethora of health supplement vendors sell products in today’s marketplace, but how do consumers really know what they are getting? Even in the regulated natural supplement industry, consumers can still find a vast spectrum of product quality. Fortunately, a few companies still thrive on being and providing the very best. 

NSP invests millions of dollars annually into Quality Assurance and Quality Control, which covers domestic and international vendor audits, cutting-edge equipment, qualified personnel, testing methods and lab materials, documentation review and more. “It’s a great deal of money,” says Gregory L. Probert, NSP Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “But our reputation is worth every dollar we spend and every minute we take to make sure we offer our members the highest quality health supplements available.” 

Nature’s Sunshine has built a reputation for having the highest quality in the industry by consistently investing the time and resources to ensure that what’s on the label is what’s in the bottle. This starts with sourcing raw materials from trusted and verified vendors. Prior to using a vendor’s materials, NSP scientists visit their facilities and conduct lengthy audits to ensure they are harvesting and processing plant material to Nature’s Sunshine’s high standards. This can include observing an actual harvest to ensure sustainability where necessary, touring offices and production space, viewing pertinent internal documents and even taking the time to inspect the facilities’ sanitation procedures. No stone goes unturned in Nature’s Sunshine’s pursuit of quality.

Superior quality also includes the manufacturing of Nature’s Sunshine’s own products in its state-of-the-art, climate controlled, 200,000 square-foot facility in Spanish Fork, Utah. NSP scientists use High Performance Liquid Chromatography, infra-red analysis, Thin Layer Chromatography, Gas Chromatography, Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry and other scientific methods and equipment to test raw materials—and finished products—to verify correct plant species and parts are present.

German Team Member builds business and muscle in 90-day Challenge

Wednesday, February 04, 2015

Michael Maleck he was sitting in his chair at the Barcelona Summit in 2014 as he watched ten team members full of health and confident that the stage did see how many pounds they had lost after participating in the test group of 90 days SLMsmart. He could not believe his eyes: seventy people had reached a healthy weight of their dreams in 90 days!

Michael Maleck watched from his seat at Summit 2014 in Barcelona as 10 confident, healthy Synergy Team Members graced the stage to show off the weight they lost as members of Europe’s 90-day SLMsmart test group. He couldn’t believe the results he was hearing—70 people reached their dream weight in just 90 days!

“As I sat there, I thought about all the diets I’ve tried over the past 10 years, and how I kept gaining more and more weight until I reached the 200 lb. mark,” Michael said,” but I had no doubt that the SLMsmart weight management program could work for me from the results I observed.”

Michael made a resolution at the beginning of 2014 to maintain a healthier lifestyle, which included eating nutrient-rich foods and participating regularly in sports and other physical activities. He began making progress and was excited to add SLMsmart to his health routine after the Summit product launch to see if this tasty shake would give him the push he needed toward his ideal weight before the year ended.

The recommended SLMsmart program instructs those who want to maintain their weight to substitute one meal with SLMsmart Meal Replacement mixed with milk or water and one packet of the e9 energy drink mixed with water. Those looking to lose weight should drink both SLMsmart Meal Replacement and e9 twice per day in place of two meals. In addition, all those who participate in the program are advised to eat a healthy diet and participate in a minimum of 30 minutes of daily exercise, five days per week.

 “I replaced two meals per day with SLMsmart Meal Replacement and one serving of e9,” Michael said, “and the best part was that it tasted fantastic while helping me feel satisfied. These products gave me what my body needed all at once.”

Michael never got tired of the SLMsmart flavor and always looked forward to replacing meals. He experimented with flavors adding espresso, fruits, vegetables and even Synergy products, such as Phytolife and Mistify, to his shakes, and loved everything he tried.
