You already know that SLMsmart Meal Replacement is a delicious shake that can help you manage your weight.* But did you also know that its unique formula makes it more than just a weight management aide? In fact, SLMsmart Meal Replacement may be used as a helpmate for individuals aspiring to build muscle, tone muscle, or maintain your physique.
As you share this product, you may want to consider discussing Meal Replacement’s effects on total body transformation rather the weight management alone. Combined with the proper diet and exercise routine, SLMsmart can be a key player in feeding your muscles the protein, fat, and carbohydrates they need.
How it works:
When you work your muscles, the tissue breaks down. The whey, soy and casein proteins in SLMsmart Meal Replacement digest at different time intervals that will aid in supporting muscles. Eating—or drinking—a protein-packed meal right before bed and saturating muscles with protein is a strategy popular amongst athletes to maintain muscle and contribute to muscle growth.
In addition, SLMsmart’s formula contains healthy carbohydrates that help support glycogen levels and offers the body a full meal’s worth of vitamins and minerals.**
SLMsmart’s formula is a blend backed by science. It was created by Synergy’s own research and development team of Ph.D. scientists. Each ingredient added to SLMsmart Meal Replacement was done for very specific reasons.
So whether you’re looking to reach a healthy weight or increase your protein intake to give your muscles a boost, Synergy has you covered.
Looking to shake things up? Try adding some fun new twists to your Meal Replacement shake! We collected our top five favorite recipes and published them in the December 2014 Legacy eMagazine

These Team Members gathered in Dublin and Heathrow ready to listen, learn and prepare for the new year. The events began with the Synergy Advantage presentation for recent Synergy distributors and guests in the audience. This introduction led into the highlighted speakers of the 2015 Kickoff events.
Attendees first heard from Wynne Roberts, Synergy’s newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, who talked passionately about the exciting developments Synergy WorldWide can expect to see in 2015. UK Team Members were thrilled to hear from Synergy’s new CEO for the first time in the market. Wynne was followed by Mark Comer, a Double Presidential Executive from Utah, who encouraged Team Members to keep building their belief, duplicate sponsorships in their teams and create urgency in growing their business and achieving their goals in 2015. His words inspired many to go home and really get to work!
Rob Lord, General Manager for Western Europe, gave an overview of the 2015 promotions, including the continuation of the 2×2 Builder Bonus and the SLMsmart promotions.
He then announced the exciting local Team Manager Academy promotion that qualifies Team Members at 10,000 CV or 20,000 CV on their weak leg (depending on their current title) with a minimum 5,000 CV increase!
Together, UK and Ireland Team Members committed to having at least 300 people present at the Rome Summit in September 2015…and they pre-registered 51 people at the Kickoff events! The Race for Rome promotion promises to be very lucrative indeed for those Team Members who start growing their business fast this year.
Thank you to everyone who attended these great Kickoff events in Heathrow and Dublin, you truly made these spectacular events. Get ready for a year with Synergy that will go down in the history books!
