In 2015, the team at the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation
conducted a clinical study intended to examine the safety and efficacy
of the Metabolic LDL formula. With Citrus bergamia Risso as the chief
ingredient, amplified by nine other phytoextracts known to enhance its
antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities, this new formula
featured potential benefits that our scientists were confident would be
proven. The study would later be published in the Canadian Journal of
Physiology and Pharmacology.
Eleven subjects between the ages of 38 and 65 were selected to
participate in the study based upon their body mass index, low density
lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. All participants were
instructed to take two capsules of Metabolic LDL with dinner each day
for 12 weeks.
At the end of the 12-week period, the following significant changes were observed in all subjects:
7.3% reduction in total cholesterol 10% reduction in LDL-cholesterol 7.1% reduction in non-LDL cholesterol 26% reduction in cholesterol/HDL 2.8% reduction in apolipoprotein B
At the start of the study, eight of the 11 subjects had HbA1c levels of
5.4 or higher. These individuals experienced the following additional significant changes:
27% reduction in triglycerides 19% reduction in oxLDL 25% reduction in LDL/HDL 27% reduction in triglycerides/HDL 25% reduction in oxLDL/HDL 37% reduction in PAI-1
The study concluded that Metabolic LDL “was clinically well-tolerated
and effective… in subjects with moderate cardio metabolic risk factors,
particularly in the individuals with HbA1c > 5.4%.”” READ THE COMPLETE STUDY REPORT HERE
Synergy Worldwide’s Metabolic LDL was developed to support healthy
cholesterol levels and cardiovascular function by combining Citrus
bergamia Risso extract with a proprietary blend of high-ORAC
antioxidants. This unique and powerful herbal formula naturally supports
cholesterol levels and oxidation, triglycerides, as well as blood sugar
levels already in the normal range.
Cooking a heart healthy meal, or cooking in general, may seem like a
frightening task to some, especially to those who tend to burn
everything including toast. However, a study completed by the Johns
Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health states that the main
ingredient in a healthier diet is cooking meals at home. By cooking at
home you have control over your ingredients, your portion sizes, and the
way that you cook your food.
A key to creating heart healthy meals is to cut down on cholesterol,
fats, and salt found in many common ingredients. Create meals that keep
your heart in mind by looking to these quick tips when dinnertime
Rather than deep frying or pan frying food, which causes ingredients to
soak up unnecessary and unhealthy fats, look to these alternative
options to keep the nutritional value of your ingredients intact:
Stir-frying. High temperatures destroy some nutrients when
cooking, so by stir-frying foods rapidly at high temperatures, food
(especially vegetables) retain more of their nutrients, and since the
cooking happens quickly, the foods don’t retain as much oil as they
would with conventional deep frying techniques.
Broiling. Broiling is a popular choice to prepare healthy meals
since it uses direct heat to cook the food and requires little to no oil
in order to cook. Similarly, broiling methods melt the natural fat
found in meat such as chicken or fish, and since most ovens have a
broiling unit, it is a quick and reliable way to prepare meals.
Steaming. Unlike the options above, steaming is a form of cooking
that requires no oil, which makes it much better for your heart since
it avoids adding unnecessary fats. Steaming is also great for keeping
the original form and taste as well as most of the original nutrition,
especially in vegetables. For example, steamed broccoli retains 81% of
its vitamin C as opposed to only 30% when cooked in water. And since
preparation for steaming is minimal, you can create a healthy meal in
very little time.
Quick Tip: Try to keep your meals simple. In many cases, simple
recipes and ingredients lead to healthier, more natural meals while more
complicated recipes that involve extra ingredients and specialized
cooking methods could potentially be taking away from your meal’s
nutrition and your time.
‘Tis the Season
Try to avoid prepackaged seasonings as they usually contain a lot of
salt. Selecting fresh herbs and preparing hand-made seasonings may seem
foreign to you now, but in the long-term, you’ll be saving money by
doing the preparation yourself. Your heart will thank you for avoiding
all the extra sodium found in store-bought packages.
Quick Tip: Use citrus juice, peppers, or vinegar to add an extra
level of flavor to your dishes. But be sure to use these sparingly as to
not overpower the overall flavor of the meal.
Using low or non-fat yogurt instead of sour cream cuts out unnecessary
fats in your meal. In ½ a cup of yogurt, you’ll get double the calcium
and cut out 4 grams of fat and 2 grams of saturated fat—a fat found in
many store-bought foods that could be damaging to heart health over
Eliminating butter and replacing it with heart healthy olive oil can be
incredibly beneficial to your arteries and overall heart health.
Replacing one tablespoon of butter with one tablespoon of olive oil
drops the fat content by 2 grams. Seven grams of unhealthy saturated fat
will be replaced by 10 grams of heart healthy monounsaturated fats
If you’re putting in the time and effort to prepare a heart healthy
dish, don’t hesitate to go overboard. Making extra food gives you
healthy snack options, as well as back-up meals in case you don’t feel
like preparing something new after a long day. There’s nothing wrong
with thinking ahead. This will help you create good habits that will
keep your heart healthy and happy in the future.
Quick Tip: Making extra food is great, but just because you have
extra food, doesn’t mean you need extra helpings. Set aside proper
portions for snacks and meals by using small bags or plastic containers
to stay organized and stay focused on eating until you are satisfied
rather than eating until you are stuffed.
In January, Dan Hammer became Synergy North America’s newest Team
Manager. We want to congratulate him on this milestone, and for his hard
work and tireless dedication to Synergy WorldWide. This month is
particularly fitting to celebrate a rising leader who has worked hard to
share heart health education throughout his career.
Dan is a veteran in the health arena. With an extensive background in
exercise physiology, he has devoted much of his life to pinpointing
exactly what the body needs to function optimally. On a personal level,
Dan has always looked for natural solutions to help him excel in his
active lifestyle as a competitive soccer player. So, when Synergy
introduced ProArgi-9+ in 2008, Dan was eager to try the formula and put
it to the test.
“ProArgi-9+ made a significant difference in my athletic performance.
I could immediately tell that it gave me greater endurance. I also had
no soreness the next day after playing soccer, which was something I
always experienced before. My wife also used it for her high blood
pressure, and it made a huge difference for her. So, I decided to learn
more about l-arginine and nitric oxide. And I started to create videos
to help educate others on this remarkable product. It’s an ideal product for every person. Everyone has an endothelium
that lines their cardiovascular system. If you look at scientific
research, nitric oxide is critical to cardiovascular health. The key is
how to create interest to help people want to improve their health. So,
instead of trying to sell ProArgi-9+, we decided to focus on educating
people on Nitric Oxide Therapy and then let them know that our product
of choice is ProArgi-9+.”
On Being a Part of Synergy WorldWide
“Pure and simple, it’s helping people improve their health. It’s what
I’m passionate about. And I’m associated with a company that has
products that truly help people improve their health. Products that are
affordable and effective.”
On His Success
“It means that we’re beginning to have an impact. That our marketing
efforts are beginning to create momentum. Now, it’s figuring out how to
expand the effort and help our Team Members understand how to duplicate
the message. That message is Nitric Oxide Therapy to address most
cardiovascular health concerns, with our product of choice being
On the Legacy He Hopes to Leave
“Our legacy and our ‘why’ is The Million Lives Project. Synergy
Worldwide has products that address the two major areas of need:
cardiovascular health and gut health. Our legacy will be to help 1
million people, or more, understand how Nitric Oxide Therapy can
naturally address most cardiovascular health concerns. And for those
with other forms of health distress or weight management issues, how
changing their gut health can help them improve their wellbeing and live
a more vibrant life.”
Dane Iorg – Presidential Executive
“It’s extremely hard to find a more devoted Synergy Team Member than Dan.”
“I want to congratulate Dan on achieving the rank of Team Manager.
First and foremost, Dan is a kind and compassionate person. Dan is also
a hard worker and daily puts in the time it takes to become a
successful Synergy distributor.
Dan is passionate about health and he knows the science behind Synergy’s
products. The truth is this— if Dan didn’t think Synergy’s products
were of the highest standards in the industry, he wouldn’t be a
distributor with Synergy. Dan’s integrity is what is most important to
him, and when he says something, it is what he believes. Dan’s opinions
are not idle opinions because one of Dan’s passions is learning as much
as he can about health. Anyone who knows Dan, knows that he is highly
educated in the field of health and nutrition.
Dan’s goal is to continue to build a robust and successful Synergy
business. The remarkable thing about Dan is that he wants everyone else
to do the same. It’s extremely hard to find a more devoted Synergy Team
Member than Dan.”
Robert Wischmeier – Team Leader
“He is spoken of across the Synergy world with respect and appreciation. He has earned that reputation.”
“I’ve been associated with Dan for many years. Years ago he took a
course on ‘Branding Yourself,’ and made the decision to create a YouTube
presence on health issues, using Nitric Oxide Therapy as an initial
concept. He has always used that language, Nitric Oxide Therapy, when
teaching or leading discussions. He leads with NO and uses ProArgi-9+
as his ‘product of choice.’ It was a brilliant concept and has proven
itself over and over. We all do this now. To date he has hundreds of
YouTube videos and has certainly branded himself.
His follow-up is outstanding, and the support he lends to his downline
and customer base is enviable. It was Dan who spoke to the enormous
value of creating a customer base years ago, proving that his vision and
insight are spot on.
I believe that Synergy Worldwide is a better company because of him. He
has provided resources that he made available to everyone in the
organization, not just his downline. He is spoken of across the Synergy
world with respect and appreciation. He has earned that reputation.”
ProArgi-9+ has once again been included in this year’s edition of the
Prescribers’ Digital Reference (PDR), formerly known as the Physicians’
Desk Reference, providing a greater opportunity for people to discover
the tremendous benefits of our best-selling product.
For more than 70 years, medical specialists across the world have turned
to the PDR as the authoritative source of information on drugs and
prescribed substances. Now available exclusively in a digital format,
the 2019 edition of the PDR continues to be utilized in virtually every
physician’s office, pharmacy, clinic, and library. No medical reference
is more current, more recognized, or more respected. The PDR contains
label information, dosage instructions, images, and more.
We hope this publicity encourages more people to discover and share ProArgi-9+ and its value in supporting a healthy lifestyle.

This proprietary formulation combines the powerful cardiovascular
benefits of l-arginine with a variety of superior heart health
