Many people do not get adequate protein on a regular basis. Additionally, many people simply don’t realize the importance of increasing their protein intake while trying to lose weight— but they should!
PROTEIN: PACKED WITH POWER
Protein helps fuel the body all day long and provides muscles with amino acids—building blocks that are needed for important muscle growth and repair. Check out these other essential protein functions:
• Proteins are key components of antibodies, digestive enzymes, hormones, blood (hemoglobin), fingernails and hair—most things you can’t live without!
• Proteins control muscle movement, from simple, restful breathing to slam-dunking a basketball. • Proteins help cells communicate with each other.
• Increasing protein intake can help build muscle mass, which leads to a faster metabolism—the rate at which your body burns fuel for energy.
DID YOU KNOW?
Our delicious SLMsmart Health Shake provides three different types of protein for a balanced, more satisfying meal replacement!
•Whey protein breaks down quickly and speeds amino acids to the muscles, aiding faster recovery after exercise or stretching. Whey also contains higher amounts of the amino acid leucine, which helps stimulate protein synthesis.
•Soy is considered a medium-release protein. It takes a little bit longer to break down soy into those building blocks.
•Casein, a dairy protein, is the most complex of the three. It is digested more slowly and provides a slower but steady supply of amino acids to the body via the bloodstream. Since it stays in the digestive system the longest, casein adds to a welcome feeling of fullness and satisfaction.
Each serving of our delicious SLMsmart Health Shake provides 26 grams of our pure protein blend to nourish your body and stave off hunger. Enjoy complete meal replacement and feel full for up to four hours!
Last year’s North American incentive program was a tremendous success. Team Members across the market rose to the Top 50 Challenge, earning points, prizes, cash and a vacation worth looking forward to (they’ll depart for Cancun this March). Now, as we begin a new year, Synergy is pleased to announce that the Top 50 Challenge will take place once again, giving North America’s hard working Team Members a chance to win in a variety of ways throughout 2014.
NEW MONTHLY PRIZES
Once again, Synergy will give the top 10 point earners of each month an exciting prize as a reward for their business building efforts. Along with the iPad Minis, Kindle Fires and Synergy merchandise, Team Members can look forward to new prizes this year, such as cameras and bluetooth speakers sure to come in handy at your next Synergy event.
TRAVEL & REWARDS
Few things are as exciting as a chance to leave town for a time, experience a new place and enjoy a vacation. Synergy is working now to plan a trip for our Team Members to look forward to. Stay tuned to the Synergy WorldWide blog as we prepare to announce times and destinations in the near future. Until those announcements, we encourage Team Members to rack up the points and set yourself up for good times ahead.
The ways to earn points this year are the same as they were in 2013. Team Members are awarded points for a variety of business building activities including recruiting, rank advancing, and helping those you sponsor to do the same. You can check your progress and point totals every week by clicking the “Top 50” tab at the top of this blog, or by clicking here.
