Internationally-ranked Long Jumper relies on e9 and ProArgi-9+

Posted: 26 Aug 2015 09:20 PM PDT

 

Nina Djordjevič's list of athletic accomplishments is extensive, to say the least. She discovered her talent for long jump at age 9 when she began practicing with a track and field team. Nina was a natural! Her performance at meets turned heads and before she knew it she was competing in the World Junior Championship finals. Before receiving a full-ride scholarship to Kansas State University's track and field team, Nina won the bronze medal in long jump at the Youth Olympic Games.

Her success continues to soar and her long jump achievements are almost too many to count:

Finals in long jump in Athletic European Championship in Zurich, 2014
12th place in indoor Athletic European Championship in Praha, 2015
Slovenian national champion in long jump
Placed 4th in NCAA championship
2-time All-American athlete
Silver medal inn Big 12 conference championships
Holds long jump record at Kansas State University
Best Student Athlete at Kansas State University, 2011
First team of best student athletes in the U.S.

Nina was introduced to Synergy products by a friend who trusted the products to help her get fit after her pregnancy. Because her friend is a doctor, Nina decided she could trust the products too. She started by taking the V3 System products—ProArgi-9+, Mistify and Phytolife—and said it didn't take long to notice that the products were having a positive impact on her health.

Now, she relies heavily on e9 and ProArgi-9+, appreciating that both products give her energy boosts in a pinch while enhancing her overall health with high-quality ingredients. Mistify and Phytolife are also staples in her daily health routine because their many potent ingredients contribute to her overall wellbeing. While she heals from a foot injury, Nina still takes the products regularly to help in the recovery process.

Ultimately, Nina aims to compete in the Olympics and World Indoor Championship, letting Synergy products play a part in getting her there.

5 Core Vitamins Every Woman Should Have in Her Diet

Have you ever found yourself asking, "Do I really need supplements? If so, which ones do I need?" With so many vitamins and minerals to choose from, you may feel overwhelmed with which vitamins and minerals you should take.

When first choosing a supplement, you'll need to decide between a vegetarian or a gelatin capsule. Vegetarian capsules are plant based while gelatin capsules contain animal byproducts. Gelatin capsules are said to be better for your joints, but in the end, it's just a matter of personal preference.

Here are five core vitamins you should consider including in your diet:

Multivitamin. A multivitamin is an excellent way to ensure you are getting all your nutrients as it's designed to fill in nutritional gaps. When deciding what multivitamin to take, pick one that is high quality and has a high potency.

Calcium. This mineral is important for building strong bones, teeth, and gums. Most of the time you will find combination Cal/Mag/Zinc (Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc) supplements, which are great for added nutrients. Speak with your doctor to know which calcium supplement is the best option for you.

Omega-3 Fatty Acid. Considered "good" fats, omega-3s have a number of health benefits. Fish oil, salmon, flaxseed, and flaxseed oil, are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

Magnesium. While this mineral is usually overlooked, Magnesium is an important mineral to add to your diet, helping to turn calories into energy. To learn more about the benefits associated with magnesium, read The Magnesium Miracle by Carolyn Dean, MD, ND.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid). This vitamin is assists in tissue growth and repair, enhances immunity, and increases iron absorption. When choosing a Vitamin C supplement, avoid chewables since they can damage tooth enamel.

Take steps today to increase your body's longevity by incorporating a healthy diet, regular exercise, and high-quality supplements into your day-to-day routine

Karate World Champion Gains Competitive Edge with Synergy Products

Posted: 26 Aug 2015 08:46 PM PDT



Cathy McAleer is one tough woman, both mentally and physically, and is an elite athlete in mixed martial arts. Her schedule is booked with all things karate, from training herself and other karate champions to playing crucial roles in the operations of karate businesses throughout Ireland.

She is the Founder of NIKA (Northern Ireland Karate Academy) and runs two clubs in Queens Leisure Complex Holywood and Stormont Pavilion where she helps train a number of World, European, British and Irish champions. However, neither of these responsibilities are her full-time job. She works day-to-day as a general manager of one of Northern Ireland's Virgin Active Health Clubs. In addition to being certified in sports massage therapy, Cathy has a bachelor's degree in sports marketing.

Achievements:

  • World WKC Kata Champion 2014
  • World Kumite Karate Champion 2014
  • WKC Silver Medalist 2014
  • WKN European Full Contact Kickboxing Champion 2014
  • WKN Draw for K1 World Champion 2014
  • Undefeated Northern Ireland champion for 10 consecutive years
  • 3rd Dan Karate Instructor and national coach for Northern Ireland

"Many people ask me how I fit it all in and also have the energy to compete and train," Cathy said. "Synergy's range of products has made a big difference. All of the products are compliant with WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency, as being free of banned athlete substances."

Cathy began using the V3 System in June 2014 and found tremendous benefits after only three weeks. Her training regimen is intense and can do a lot of damage to her body, but Synergy products allow her to rain more regularly with excellent recovery. She was able to push herself to increase her runs from 3 miles to 6 miles, though she isn't an avid runner.

All of Cathy's associations in Ireland's athletic scene have certainly helped her obtain an impressive customer volume by sharing Synergy products.
Cathy's next competitive fight will be at the World Open Martial Arts Games in Geneva in September where she will compete in kickboxing.

"A goal of mine is to have two world titles in two different sports, and on September 13 that dream will hopefully come true," Cathy said. "Each of Synergy's products contributes to my success in different ways. Thank you so much Synergy for your world class products!"

We wish you the best of luck Cathy and are proud that you are part of the Synergy family!
