Synergy Natural was established in 1993 under the guise of Synergy Spirulina, created to “provide natural wholefood health products … at an affordable price”. (Synergynatural.com.au) In the 20 years since, the company has grown into a respected manufacturer of high quality supergreens, distributing to countries across the globe.
The product range includes Natural Barley, Wheat grass, Natural Chlorella and Supergreens (which blends all 4 together). These superfoods are valued for their nutrient dense, endurance providing qualities. They are convenient to consume and provide a solid nutritional foundation.
As per the Synergy Natural website, the company mission is
“To provide the highest quality, affordable, whole-food nutritional supplements that nurture true health & wellbeing.”
Synergy Natural Spirulina and Chlorella are sourced from islands in the Pacific, far removed from the toxic environment of our “advanced”, urban society. The Barley and Wheat grass products are grown on an Australian certified organic farm on the banks of the Murray River. The environment is pollutant free, and again, isolated to ensure the purity and integrity of the end-product is not compromised.
What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is a superfood in every sense of the word. According to respected alternative health site Mercola.com, it provides the following health benefits:
- Highly digestible proteins (83 to 90 percent digestible)
- High levels of gamma-linolenic acid, a precursor to important biochemicals such as prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and thromboxanes, which serve as chemical mediators for inflammatory and immune reactions
- Spirulina has no fatty acids with uneven carbon numbers and very low-level branched-chain fatty acids
- Spirulina has about the same calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium content as milk, a vitamin E (tocopherol) level comparable to wheat germ, and four times as much vitamin B12 as raw liver
