The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.
I am seeing this word used all over the place and it’s obvious that a lot of people don’t know what it means. I’ll give an example.
- You use supplement A and gain 3lbs.
- You use supplement B and gain 5lbs.
- If you used them together and gained 8lbs, then they worked in an additive manor.
- If you used them together and gained 10lbs, then they worked in a synergistic manor.
Ladies and gentlemen, please post any words that you commonly see people butchering.
