4 essential supplements

4 Essential Supplements for Men’s Health – Greg Pryor

I have been an advocate for vitamins and supplements since I started my professional baseball career in 1971, with the Washington Senators.

Please take a seat on the bench and consider the 4 simple tips below.

Tip #1  Use a High-Quality Multi-Vitamin, Multi-Mineral such as LIFEGUARD™ or LIFESHIELD™ with Each Meal  Your body needs nutrients 24 hours a day so using supplements after each meal is very logical. Most of the food we eat is devoid of virtually all the trace minerals we need for survival so  consider using a high-potency multi-vitamin with each meal to help provide free radical protection and to build up the immune system. Food that is sold in markets today is less nutritious than it was 50 years ago

Tip #2-OMEGA3 PRIORITY™ Use the “Essential” Nutrient, Omega-3. One of the major building blocks of the brain, the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is critical for optimal brain health and function at all ages of life.  Getting enough DHA from the diet is impractical (some people don’t like or eat fish) and the easiest way to consume it is from fish oil. Omega 3 is one of the most researched and added value supplements due to the value it provides for brain and cardiac health. Make getting a high quality Omega-3 a top priority.

Tip #3  JOINT-DECISION™ OR TOTAL JOINT COMPLEX ™ Nutrients for Joint Health.I have been using glucosamine HCl since 1996 to keep my joints and cartilage healthy.  Since ’96, my company, Life Priority has enjoyed helping thousands of people understand how using a high-quality form of glucosamine can help support and maintain healthy joints. Using glucosamine has allowed me to play golf with less joint pain and also participate in the KC Royals Fantasy Camp each year.

Tip #4-PROSTATE PRIORITY™ Specific Nutrients for Maintaining a Healthy Prostate Prostate health becomes more important with age, particularly for men over the age of 40. There are certain nutrients that can help support the health of the prostate including, lycopene, saw palmetto, pygeum, vitamin C, vitamin D-3 and zinc.

I feel that the use of quality supplements in the right dosages at the right times can help you live a healthier life and slow up the aging process.

Men's health is at increased risk for heart issues, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease and are also at higher risk for prostate cancer.

Greg Pryor – September 2018 Men’s Health!

September Celebrates of Men’s Health!

In today’s fast-paced lifestyles, most men’s health is faced with increasing mental and physical demands as they age. Personally, I have found that an easy, logical way to slow up my aging process is to keep my body and brain more fit through the use of a few essential supplements with each meal.

I urge all men to consider, at least, the use of the following supplements:

  •  Lifeguard-a high-quality multivitamin created to try and help to provide immune support and fill in the gaps of your diet,
  •  Omega-3 Priority™-a potent omega-3 supplement for heart (EPA) and brain health (DHA),
  • Prostate Priority™ specific nutrients that may help promote a healthy prostate,
  •  Joint Decision™ or Total Joint Complexglucosamine that may help to support and maintain healthy cartilage health.

I feel that the consistent, daily use of the right nutrients in supplement form (and in adequate amounts!) is one of the most important health decisions that we can make. Based on the past 20 years of being in the dietary supplement industry through my company, Life Priority, and my 16 year career as a pro athlete, I feel strongly that using high-quality supplements is imperative. Your diet is most likely lacking in one or more essential nutrients. You can help yourself feel better and slow up your personal aging process by using high-quality supplements.

In addition, men’s health is at increased risk for heart related issues including heart attack and cardiovascular disease. They are also at a higher risk for prostate cancer. Both heart disease and prostate cancer affect millions of men every year and take many away from their families and friends too soon. If men can incorporate more exercise, consume more health supplements; bone restore; hair skin and nails; two per day capsules; c vitamin; vitamin c; vitamin c2; c2 vitamin; omega 3 supplement; health booster; vitamin k; vitamin d; vitamin d3; one per day vitamin; one per day multivitamin; glucosamine chondroitin; life extension magnesium; magnesium supplement; coq10 supplement; viatmin e supplement; glutathione cysteine; supplement nac; black seed oil; glucosamine; n acetyl cysteine; nacetyl l cysteine; fish oil; supplements fish oil; acetyl cysteine; omega 3 supplements; fish oil pill; omega 3 from fish oil; best fish oil supplements; n acetylcysteine cysteine; omega 3 supplements best; b complex; fish oil benefits; vitamins and supplements; black seed oil benefits; flush niacin; glucosamine chondroitin; vitamin life extension; supplements life extension; life extension multivitamin; life extension magnesium; magnesium caps; prostate ultra; fish oil vitamins; supplements vitamins; durk pearson; durk pearson and sandy shawfish with essential fatty acids (EFA’s), visit their doctors regularly and watch out for depression and high blood pressure, stop smoking and use a daily multivitamin, they can increase their life expectancy and live healthier, fuller lives.

I have been involved as a retail customer or a marketer of dietary supplements since 1991.  Don’t leave your physical and mental well-being up to anyone else! It’s your life! Your body, including your brain, is aging each day and you can give yourself a better chance at living a healthier (and happier!) life by simply using enough of the right nutrients each day with meals or at bedtime.

I helped form Life Priority, Inc. in 1994 to secure the nutritional products I wanted for my own personal use.  A major reason that Life Priority was formed was because of the research of 2 scientists who were the co-authors of a NY Times best-seller Life Extension, A Practical Scientific Approach, which was written specifically for doctors. The authors, Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, wrote Life Extension so that doctors could understand how using certain nutrients in adequate amounts could slow up the aging process.

I have been involved in the health industry for the past 30 years. I invite you to please read the enclosed information and invest in yours.by to observe a baseball game. The Lord's team was playing Satan's team. The Lord's team was at bat, the score tied.

Baseball is the Lord’s Game!

THE LORD’S BASEBALL GAME

Casey and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game. The Lord’s team was playing Satan’s team. The Lord’s team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs:

They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate named ‘Love.’

Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because ‘Love never fails.’

The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single because Faith works with Love.

The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw the first

pitch. Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass: Ball one. Three more pitches

and Godly Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan throws.

The bases were now loaded. The Lord then turned to Casey and told him He

was now going to bring in His star player. Up to the plate stepped Grace.

Casey said, ‘He sure doesn’t look like much!’

Satan’s whole team relaxed when they saw Grace.

Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch. To the shock

of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen! But Satan was not

worried, his center fielder let very few get by. The center fielder went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, hit him on the head and sent him crashing on the ground; and the roaring crowds went wild as the ball continued over the fence.

The Lord’s team won!

The Lord then asked Casey if he knew why Love, Faith and Godly Wisdom

could get on base but couldn’t win the game. Casey answered that he didn’t know

The Lord explained, ‘If your love, faith and wisdom had won the game, you

would think you had done it by yourself. Love, Faith and Wisdom will get you on

base but only My Grace can get you Home.

‘For by Grace are you saved, it is a gift of God; not of works, lest any man should

boast.’ Ephesians 2:8-9

‘For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.’ Psalm 84:11

Testimonies by Paige, Storey, and Hailey Pryor, daughters of Life Priority owner, Michelle Pryor, the driving force behind Life Priority.

A Mother’s Love: The Driving Force Behind Life Priority

Testimonies by Paige, Storey, and Hailey Pryor, daughters of Life Priority owner, Michelle Pryor

“The month of May has grown sweeter to me, not because I’ve become a Mother myself, but because I’ve watched my Mother become a Grandmother.  I just wish she were with me everyday to remind my kids to take their vitamins.  I attribute my Mother for instilling the knowledge of supplementation and healthy living in me.  My parents’ passion for health and helping people makes me so proud and they talk about their customers as our own family.  Thank you for supporting Life Priority and our family.” – Paige Cook, Michelle’s 1st born

“My mom is one of the most selfless, passionate, nurturing, loving women on the planet – which is certainly why she is the rock of the Pryor family, and it goes without saying, the driving force behind Life Priority. I feel tremendously blessed that my parents created this company to provide the world’s finest health and wellness supplements. My Mom lives and breathes every single product, and is determined to share this incredible company with the world. Thank you for your commitment to your health, and supporting Life Priority over the few decades. There is so much heart and soul in this company, and we are proud you’re a part of our family!” – Storey Pryor, Favorite Daughter

“Most people who cross paths with Michelle Pryor (my mother) are quick to understand the raw and genuine nature of her spirit. I am so grateful to have been raised by a mother with unwavering moral and ethical beliefs. I cannot think of a truer inspiration to have been raised by. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to adopt some of her most redeeming qualities. You will hear her say, “your health is your most valuable asset” – which I cannot agree with more. I am so thankful that her interest in health and vitamins trickled down into us (her daughters). She truly does care about the well being of others, including all our loyal and valuable customers.” – Hailey Pryor, the baby

Success is measured in inches, not pounds. This plan is not just a weight loss plan; it's a wellness plan, I recommend keeping a journal.

Promote a Healthier You the Safe Way

I’ve heard several “horror” stories from customers regarding manipulative marketing.

So don’t get scammed. You should research the company and product before agreeing to any financial commitments.

Here’s an example of one such “scam”: Your order today includes a 60 day introductory supply (2 bottles) of XYZ that you can try for up to 30 days (as well as your FREE XYZ Word Recall Test) with today’s charge being only $9.95 Shipping and Handling.

If you are not completely satisfied, call or email us within 30 days of placing your order and you will not be charged another cent. If you decide to use XYZ Brain Power , after 30 days you will be billed $79.90. For your convenience, every 60 days you will receive a fresh 2 month supply of XYZ Brain Power for the guaranteed locked in price of $39.95 per bottle. That’s a 40% savings from the retail value! There are no obligations, you can cancel any time by contacting customer service.

You may have read about companies that offer products, but the phone number doesn’t work or no one responds to an email, or the product doesn’t match the expectations. This can be frustrating if you’re trying to live healthier, and here at Life Priority we value each and every customer.

The key to becoming healthier is having a strong support system and at Life Priority, we are always willing to answer any questions you may have along your health journey. You can email or call and when you do, you will receive feedback from an actual person and not an automated response. In addition, our products are scientifically formulated and have been personally used for the last 20 years. Your health and well-being is our top priority, and we place an emphasis on providing quality customer care.

Baby blues refers to the first days & weeks after your new baby arrives can be sweet and savored, but they can also be overwhelming. 

7 Simple Natural Suggestions for Postpartum “Baby Blues”

Here are 7 simple and natural ways found to be effective in helping new mothers with the “baby blues”. The term “baby blues” refers to the first days and weeks after your new baby arrives can be sweet and savored, but they can also be overwhelming. Consider these 7 simple natural suggestions:

  1. Start with your Diet your diet will help support you in your effort to be healthier and have more energy. Diet is one of the most important things you can do for both your health and the health of your
    newborn baby. I suggest you meal plan with the goal of a good nutritional plan to get the best nutrients from a healthy diet. Be sure to get lots of fresh organic fruits and vegetables. Meal planning will help you analyze your diet and make life easier and save time and money. Keep plenty of healthy snacks, apples, carrots, nuts and fruit juices handy to help insure your blood sugar levels and make sure you are getting enough fluids. (Hydrated)

Staying hydrated especially when breastfeeding is essential. Dehydration can cause fatigue, irritability and confusion.  Try to consume at least 8 glasses of water a day or herbal teas, sparkling water can help with fluid intake but sweeten with natural honey or stevia.

  1. Supplements can help support your diet and intake of essential nutrients for a healthy diet. Many womenOmega-3 Priority provides the vital fish oils that can improve your heart and brain functions, while enhancing your mood. continue to take their prenatal vitamins for 3 to 6 month period after the baby is born. Omega3 Priority is a supplement that can help with moods and brain health. Many healthcare professionals recommend taking during and postpartum. It has been reported taking 1000mg of Omega3 fish oil every day, will make a big impact on your mood, your stress levels and your overall emotional well-being. Within a day or two of beginning to take fish oil many report feeling less stress and overwhelmed by their emotions. If you don’t like eating fish, supplementing can be a simple and easy choice. Niacin & B Vitamins (found in our Lift formula) are supportive of more energy and fatigue. Niacin can help to ease symptoms of depression, and B-vitamins in general help lift your mood and energy.  Vitamin D3 has been found to help support hormone regulation. People who don’t get enough sunshine can get a form of SAD (seasonal affective disorder). Vitamin D3 is especially valuable in the winter months when there is limited sunlight. 
  1. Fresh Air going outside, and getting fresh air, can really help you to feel better and boost your mood. Also getting some sun (Vitamin D3), is good for you, and good for the baby; it helps to reduce jaundice. Make an effort to get outside at least once every day that the weather is cooperative. Sometimes with a newborn it can feel hard to get out the house, but staying home alone with a baby all the time can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness and can make your baby blues worse. Aromathery or Essential Oils – can help to boost mood and reduce stress and anxiety during the postpartum period. Some of these oils include sandalwood, lavender, citrus oils. Make up a room spray, simply add water and several drops of essential oils in a little spray bottle and spray it around your house as often as you like.
  1. Light Exercise- Exercise helps to clear your mind boosts your serotonin levels, and helps your body bounce back from pregnancy, which will also help you to feel better. Walking is a great way to get moving and start getting back into shape. You do need to be careful not to overdo it. (Be sure to check with your doctor, especially in the first postpartum weeks) Taking a  short walk/jog about three times a week can really be a great bonding time, put your baby in a carrier or stroller and take a light walk around the block. Get out of the house by yourself and talk a quick walk, after the baby is fed and content or sleeping, leave dad or a friend in charge.
  1. Rest -Making sure you rest and get enough sleep during those early weeks. When the baby is sleeping you may feel like you need to use that time to catch up on getting things done, but try to make an effort to sleep some of the time when your baby is sleeping. Getting enough sleep can really make a big difference in how you feel. So while you don’t always have to sleep when the baby is sleeping, babies sleep a lot, try to make it a point to try to sleep with the baby at least once during the day. Maybe adjust your bedtime to even go to bed early and catch up on that much needed sleep.
  1. Talking many women have found that one of the best ways to deal with the” baby blues” was to talk about it. Sharing your emotions and feelings are very important. All women go through a hormone imbalance after a pregnancy. Diet and exercise will definitely help but it is very important to talk about what you are feeling. Newborns sleep all the time, and will sleep pretty much anywhere, so you don’t have to worry about being at home for nap time. Taking advantage of this time by making a point to meet with family and friends will help to ease those feelings of isolation.
  1. Ask for help the first few days, weeks, and even months with a newborn can feel overwhelming. Between the time spent sitting and nursing, to caring for older children, it seems like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. Try to get as much help from others as you can – whether it’s accepting meals, offers to watch your older kids, or even cleaning your house.

Finally, with the support of family and friends, you cannot only help feel better, but get better support. Having a good support system to find ways to help ease stress and the feelings of being overwhelmed, as well as finding  ways to boost moods and balance your  hormones, will help you to feel  better. *If you are experiencing baby blues, or stronger feelings of depression, the most important thing you can do is to seek medical help,  talk it over with your doctor or midwife to find a treatment plan that will work for you.*

We are saying that many supplements safety including iron already come in childproof packaging so additional requirements are unnecessary.

Know the Facts on Supplement Safety – NPA Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D. 10.14.2015

Dear NPA member:

We have learned about a new “study” that will be released at 5 pm ET today that, among other things, suggests that 23,000 people per year visit an emergency room due to dietary supplements.  Despite being funded in part by FDA and being co-authored by FDA officials, this number was NOT derived from the official AER reporting data (which showed about 3,300 AERs in 2012), a point we are stressing to media.  We will forward the study as soon as it is made public.  Other points the study tries to make is to suggest that all supplements should come in childproof packaging and that supplements in pill form should conform to the 22 mm standard for pharmaceuticals.  We are saying that many supplements including iron already come in childproof packaging so additional requirements are unnecessary.

We know that USA Today will be writing a story on the study and have already conducted an interview with the reporter, Liz Szabo.  Our main points will be reflected in our official NPA news release, but these are some of the views we shared with the reporter this morning:

“The facts are that adverse events from supplements are extremely low given their widespread usage, and most of these are the result of three factors:  accidents, people not consulting with their doctor, or misuse of a product combined with other health factors.  Supplements are safe, which is why millions of Americans use them every day.”

  1. Dietary supplements have a mandatory serious adverse event reporting requirement and those data are available – be happy to show that to you.
  2. The official AER data shows a much different picture, with fewer than 3,300 happening in 2012.
  3. Hospitals are ADDING supplements to formularies – if hospitals thought there were legitimate concerns this wouldn’t be happening.
  4. Weight loss, body building and sexual enhancement are the top three problem areas in our industry, because that’s where we see the most internet, fly-by-night outfits that don’t adhere to good manufacturing practices.
  5. Everyone needs to consult with their doctor or caregiver, and especially those who use some of the products in these areas.
  6. Supplements are safe, which is why millions of Americans use them every day.
  7. The facts are that adverse events from natural supplements are extremely low especially compared to pharmaceuticals, which is why demand for natural alternatives is growing.
  8. The facts are that adverse events from supplements is extremely low given the widespread usage, and most of these are the result of three factors:  accidents, people not consulting with their doctor, or misuse of a product combined with other health factors.

As always, we are happy to answer any questions about this and will share information as soon as it becomes available.

Dental health, People don't realize overall health begins in your mouth. When the subject of health & fitness is discussed, oral health is often overlooked.

Team Smile-Maximum Dental Health Should be a Life Priority!

Dental health, improve your total body health… starting with your mouth! by Greg Pryor

Many people do not realize overall health begins in your mouth. When the subject of health and fitness is discussed the issue of oral health is sometimes overlooked. In the past few years, the serious — even fatal – – consequence of deferred dental care in young people has received growing attention in the United States. A case where a boy died as the result of an untreated abscessed tooth brought this problem to light on a well-known news show. This story inspired people, including a Kansas City dentist, to reach out to members of the dental community to find a way to make a difference right here in their communities. Last July, I met Dr. Bill Busch, a co-founder of TeamSmile, at a TeamSmile event at Kauffman Stadium.

TeamSmile, based out of Kansas City, was created with the mission of facilitating partnerships between dental professionals, pro sports teams and dental organizations. The goal of these partnerships is to provide life changing dental care and instruction to children who otherwise would not have access to it. For several seasons, the Kansas City Royals have partnered with TeamSmile to host a free dental health education screening and treatment clinic at Kauffman Stadium for children associated with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. Kids receive free dental care in between taking in all of the attractions of the Outfield Experience. Brian McRae, another former Kansas City Royal, and I represented the Royals at the TeamSmile event, signed autographs and talked to the kids. See TeamSmile at www.teamsmile.org.

Clinical research suggests strong links between periodontal disease and chronic, systemic inflammation throughout your body. Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease, and also heart disease. Several bacteria species causing periodontitis have been found in the atherosclerotic plaque in arteries in the heart and elsewhere. This plaque can lead to a heart attack. Oral bacteria could also harm blood vessels or cause blood clots by releasing toxins resembling proteins found in artery walls or the bloodstream. The immune system’s response to these toxins could harm vessel walls or make blood clots more easily. It is also possible mouth inflammation revs up inflammation throughout the body, including the arteries, where it can lead to heart attack and stroke. Along with brushing properly, regular flossing and diet, scheduling dental appointments for checkups and cleanings should be considered.

A proper diet can provide many of the essential nutrients needed for healthy gums and optimum dental health. Since most of us do not eat properly, using the right supplements to insure maximum dental health should be a priority. There are many nutrients that have a positive effect on oral health. Everything from receding gums and tooth sensitivity can often be attributed to a vitamin C deficiency. It is estimated gums turn over at least 20 percent of their collagen every single day. Collagen supports the gums by promoting both circulation and strength. Vitamin C inhibits the formation of plaque and tartar. In fact, vitamin C is referred to as the “invisible toothbrush.” Studies have also shown calcium and vitamin D decrease bone loss and supplementation may also improve tooth retention. Some other important nutrients known to aid in oral and dental health include CoQ 10, calcium/magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids and a high-quality multivitamin, multimineral.

Life Priority offers all of the nutrients mentioned above at www.lifepriority.com through the product names CoQ Priority, 3-Way Calcium, Magnesium Priority, Omega-3 Priority, Vita-C2, and One Per Meal Lifeguard. I invite you to investigate the “game-changing” products offered at www.lifepriority.com. It is much easier to be a winner in life when you “feel” like one!

Stress less with Music

I need a personal assistant, as I always manage to pack my days from beginning to end with various different tasks, events and plans. Everything from work and working out to obligations with friends. Unfortunately, I do not have a personal assistant, and it’s not uncommon for me to overbook myself and spread myself too thin. Having several different things I’m passionate about, leaves me wanting to be everywhere doing everything at once! Now that It is the holiday season, I have to fit shopping and family parties into the mix, which makes things even more intense and exhausting!

So what do I do when I think I’m about to spin out of control or simply pass out? The answer lies embedded in so many of my memories. For as long as I can remember, I have always turned to music. When I was on the bus to an away basketball game, after a longMan on treadmill day of class and friends, I would put on my headphones to unwind. Humming to myself, eyes closed, I would listen to the calming tones of The Vines. My mind would instantly go from running in circles to standing still, and fully focused on the game.

When I leave the house in the morning, my mind is already running through all the different tasks that lie before me, and it’s not uncommon for me to forget things in the mix! But it has been proven that music can help your memory! Knowing this, I wrote a little song to help me remember the basics! I sing, “don’t forget your phone, keys or purse, because that is the worst”. That’s right, I have been known to forget my purse, but when you have so many distractions, things get left behind!

There have been several other times in my life that I have found a sweet comforting calm in the arms of a good song. One time in particular happened my senior year of college. I was wrapped up in classes, cheerleading, choir, church and friends, when I received a call from my sister. My mom had fallen very ill, and needed to be hospitalized. I rushed home from Iowa to be with her, and stay up with her in ICU overnight. As she screamed in pain, weaving in and out of sleep, I sang to her. I sang old church hymns and Jason Mraz songs, all of our favorites. As the sun came up, she finally fell asleep, right as I was losing my voice. To this day she doesn’t remember that night, as the medication and her condition at that time wiped her memory of those hours. As I left in the morning (since my sister was there to stay with her) the overnight nurses of the ICU thanked me for singing and bringing comfort to the other patience. I’m glad I was able to bring music to that place of high stress and tension, but I wasn’t singing for them. I was singing for myself. In the wake of senior year stress, and my mother’s illness, I was singing to myself to find calm in the hurricane of life. I don’t know if I would have made it through the night without those old familiar songs to ease the weight of stress and worry on my heart.

In the hustle of life, it’s easy to get lost in the comings and goings and all the things that seem so important. But none of those things are more important than your personal health.  as it has the power to take you back to the first time you heard that song and really felt what it means. A song can simply help you breathe.

B12 is responsible for energy production because it turns carbohydrates & other fats into energy your body can use throughout the day.

Short-term memory, and critical thinking problems?

Today’s fast-paced world demands people be mentally capable of multitasking and their Simple Tips on How to Cope with Stress. If you want to reduce stress, understand these three common problems and situations that create it.brains functioning at a high level, but this isn’t always the case. Exhaustion, fatigue, stress, and forgetting everyday chores are common, and there may be a good explanation for all this. Some doctors have noted for cases of vitamin B12 deficiencies in people which can cause the symptoms above.

Vitamin B12 is responsible for energy production because it turns carbohydrates and other fats into energy your body can use throughout the day. In addition, vitamin B12 helps with the repair of cells and their growth. Therefore, B12 can help your immune system function properly, while also helping regulate mood and sleep patterns. Even though all these are important for our bodies to function properly, some recent research suggests B12’s major contribution is protecting our brain from wearing down at faster rates.

As we get older, it is natural for our cognitive abilities to decline and challenge our routines. Studies have shown elderly people with low levels of B12 are more susceptible to concentration, short-term memory, and critical thinking problems. This may scare some of you, but we can do something to help combat the natural aging process. We can start taking control of our health and begin by eating healthier foods and beverages. Food and drink alone cannot provide the correct amount of nutrients and vitamins we need to stay healthy and function at maximum capacity, so it becomes necessary to invest in supplements to fill in the missing gaps in our diets.

Our brains drive the car that is our body, so we must take care of it and provide as much support as possible for the brain to work properly. If you can increase the amount of B12 in your system, you can start seeing noticeable, positive changes in your mental faculties. Your memory, thinking, and energy can all improve. Also, your sleep patterns can improve (resulting in a more restful night’s sleep), you can have fewer mood swings, and your immune system can be stronger than ever. Who would have thought ingesting more B12 MIND - nutrient drink mix containing choline to promote focus and concentration.could potentially help with so many important aspects of our lives.

Brush Up On Healthy Habits!

Did you know that your oral health can offer clues about your overall health — or that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body? Understand the intimate connection between oral health and overall health and what you can do to protect yourself.

What’s the connection between oral health and overall health?[1]

Like many areas of the body, your mouth is teeming with bacteria — most of them harmless. Normally the body’s natural defenses and good oral health care, such as daily brushing and flossing, can keep these bacteria under control. However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease.

In addition, certain medications — such as decongestants, antihistamines, painkillers and diuretics — can reduce saliva flow. Saliva washes away food and neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth, helping to protect you from microbial invasion or overgrowth that might lead to disease.

Studies also suggest that oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with periodontitis — a severe form of gum disease — might play a role in some diseases. In addition, certain diseases, such as diabetes and HIV/AIDS, can lower the body’s resistance to infection, making oral health problems more severe.

What conditions may be linked to oral health?

Your oral health might affect, be affected by, or contribute to various diseases and conditions, including:

Endocarditis. Endocarditis is an infection of the inner lining of your heart (endocardium). Endocarditis typically occurs when bacteria or other germs from another part of your body, such as your mouth, spread through your bloodstream and attach to damaged areas in your heart.

Cardiovascular disease. Some research suggests that heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke might be linked to the inflammation and infections that oral bacteria can cause.

Pregnancy and birth. Periodontitis has been linked to premature birth and low birth weight.

Diabetes. Diabetes reduces the body’s resistance to infection — putting the gums at risk. Gum disease appears to be more frequent and severe among people who have diabetes. Research shows that people who have gum disease have a harder time controlling their blood sugar levels.

HIV/AIDS. Oral problems, such as painful mucosal lesions, are common in people who have HIV/AIDS.

Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis — which causes bones to become weak and brittle — might be linked with periodontal bone loss and tooth loss.

Alzheimer’s disease. Tooth loss before age 35 might be a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.

Other conditions. Other conditions that might be linked to oral health include Sjogren’s syndrome — an immune system disorder that causes dry mouth — and eating disorders.

Life Priority’s Suggestions to Improve Oral Health

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day (after breakfast and before bed).
  • We suggest a NON-Fluoride toothpaste (Tom’s Fluoride-Free Toothpaste)
  • Floss daily. I prefer to use a floss with wax, coupled with The Doctor’s BrushPicks.
  • Eat a healthy diet and limit between-meal snacks. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and fresh juicing.
  • Take your supplements to insure a healthy foundation, specifically 3 Way Calcium™ for stronger and healthier teeth.

3 Way Calcium™ helps to maintain healthy teeth.  When calcium levels are low, the jawbone surrenders the mineral to other areas of the body in need. As the jaw weakens, teeth loosen, creating gaps susceptible to bacteria that can cause infection, inflammation and bleeding.

  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if bristles are frayed. Buy a quality American-made product.
  • Schedule regular dental checkups at least every 6 months. Contact your dentist as soon as an oral health problem arises. Please notify your dentist if you’re taking any medications.

Taking care of your oral health is an investment in your overall health.
