A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER, DANIEL HERMAN
Before I founded Bio-Synergy, it was my dream to become a contender on Gladiators. To give myself the best chance of winning, I amped up my gym training and started taking supplements. Much to my disappointment, I found the products did not meet their promises and tasted worse than cough medicine. So in 1997, I put my Gladiators dream to one side (although years later we supplied the show) and launched Bio-Synergy. It was my passion for fitness and nutrition that drove me to create our first protein shake, as well as my dislike of drinking raw eggs (thanks, Rocky!). That shake and Creatine Plus was where it all started. From then on, my goal was to create the first clean, effective and high quality range of sports nutrition products to support the goals of all athletes, from elites to weekend warriors. I’m also proud to say we’ve been at the forefront of innovation ever since, launching the first all-in-one shake in 1999, the first ready-to-drink protein powder in 2000 and, unlike many of our competitors, we’ve never lowered the protein content of our powders. More than two decades later, over four million passionate sports and fitness enthusiasts have chosen Bio-Synergy to help them achieve their goals. Some professional athletes have even called us the best-kept secret in sport! It’s no exaggeration to say we’ve probably fuelled more gold medals, PBs and World Cup wins than any other brand. I would like to think it’s our commitment to quality that sets us apart. Since the very beginning, all Bio-Synergy products have been exclusively manufactured in the UK and we were probably the first brand to offer supplement testing for athletes, which is why as far back as 2002, we were the official supplier of the Commonwealth Games. In fact, we’ve been used by many of the world’s most respected athletes and teams, including: Mark Foster David Coulthard James Cracknell Padraig Harrington Will Greenwood Land Rover BAR The British and Irish Lions The Basketball, Ice Hockey and Rugby Leagues Premier Rugby The Boxing Board of Control Commonwealth Games We also believe that taste is as important as function. That’s why all our products are taste-tested. We also conduct surveys before a product is released to make sure the flavour is delicious. We think you should look forward to drinking or eating our supplements, so they become a welcome part of your everyday life, rather than a chore. We strive to develop new products and improve our lines constantly. We listen to the feedback our customers give us and put their requests into action. When nutritionists for the Commonwealth Games needed a clean energy drink for competing athletes of all shapes and sizes, we made it happen. I think this proves that we are committed to identifying the latest research and using this to not only develop new products but to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. We hope you’ll agree. We wish you all the success you deserve in your sport. And thank you for making us part of your journey. Yours in fitness, DANIEL HERMAN
