Synergie Skin founder announces new brand

Renowned biological scientist, biohacker and founder of Synergie Skin, Terri Vinson Jones has announced the launch of SynTernals, a new premium supplement brand set to make waves.

The brand launches with its first product, NRgize+ an NAD+ booster supplement crafted to enhance your healthspan and invigorate the body's cell vitality.

Modern life throws a lot at our cells: environmental toxins, chronic stress, and nutrient deficiencies. These challenges can take a toll, and one of the ways they show their impact is through declining levels of NAD+.

NAD+ is a fundamental molecule in our bodies. It acts like a cellular fuel cell, powering essential processes like energy production and repair. SynTernals developed NRgize+ to address this root cause. By targeting NAD+ levels, NRgize+ aims to combat the cellular damage caused by modern life's challenges.

SynTernals stands apart in the market for its commitment to high-quality, rigorously tested, evidence-based supplements. As a product that is 100% Australian-made, AUST-L listed (TGA approved), and founded on robust scientific principles, NRgize+ represents the pinnacle of their expertise in nutritional science. 

"Cellular health is the key to whole-body health and vitality. When individual cells are healthy, so too are our organs and systems. I created NRgize+ to offer an innovative combination of ingredients that optimise cellular health- span from the inside out," said Terri. 

NRgize+ is now available for $89 AUD and is available at

This very much informs the charities we work with and Look Good Feel Better’s commitment to empowering cancer patients with confidence through self-care continues to resonate strongly with us."

"For this year, our goal is to utilise NIVEA’s brand platform and nationwide presence in stores to raise $150,000 which will go to the running of over 150 workshops for 1,500 cancer patients. We hope fellow Aussies can join us in this meaningful campaign and also support the charity in any way they can."
