10 Tips to Maintain Your Prostate Health

With today’s fast-paced lifestyles, most men are faced with increasing mental and physical demands as they age.  These demands can affect your health, including your prostate.  To help you protect your health and prostate, we offer you these 10 valuable tips!

10 Tips to Help Protect Your Prostate

  1. Maintain a healthy weight, and exercise daily.
  2. Limit your trans-fat consumption.
  3. Eat more fish that contains essential fatty acids (EFAs).
  4. Work helpful nutrients into your diet. Eat cooked tomatoes that contain Lycopene. Cook with olive oil, and add cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower into your meals. Eat soy and drink green tea for antioxidant support.
  5. Avoid smoking and consume alcohol only in moderation.
  6. Use a quality multivitamin to ensure the consumption of essential nutrients.
  7. Keep a health journal to help stay disciplined. Set goals, take charge and measure your success.
  8. Get regular physicals with your healthcare professional. Seek medical treatment for stress, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and depression.
  9. Develop a positive attitude. Relax, reduce stress, and enjoy life.
  10. Remember that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

We Celebrate June by Celebrating Men’s Health

Personally, I have found that an easy, logical way to slow down 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 the use of the following supplements to help protect your prostate:

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 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 are 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 far too soon. If men can incorporate more exercise, consume more fish with essential fatty acids (EFAs), 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 two scientists who were the co-authors of a New York 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.

To your health!

Life Priority Whey of Life Protein

Life Priority is very excited to offer one of the most valuable nutrients for the body—protein!!

Did you know that your organs, tissues, muscles and hormones are all made from proteins? The protein found in foods is used by every part of the body to develop, grow and function properly.

It can be argued that nothing is more important than consuming protein foods, and because proteins are involved in just about every body function, it’s important that you consume foods high in protein every day, during every meal to prevent protein deficiency, which can wreak havoc on the body.

Studies show that eating a high-protein diet has a number of health benefits. Not only does it help you maintain and lose weight, but it also works to stabilize your blood sugar levels, improve your ability to learn and concentrate, reduce brain fog, boost your energy levels, support your muscles and bones and support the absorption of important nutrients.

Many people make the mistake of trying diets that involve calorie counting and deprivation. On a high-protein diet, you will feel completely satiated after eating, and you won’t have to deal with the blood sugar highs and lows that lead to cravings and moodiness. You’ll be surprised to see how many foods you can eat on a high-protein diet. Even people on a vegetarian or vegan diet, who sometimes turn to processed foods for energy, have enough high-protein foods to choose from.

We need to eat plenty of protein foods every day to keep our metabolisms running, our energy up and our blood sugar levels stable.

You might eat enough protein overall, but do you eat the right kinds?

Life Priority takes all the guess work out of getting enough of the right protein with our Whey of Life Protein.

We now offer WHEY OF LIFE protein. WHEY OF LIFE is a flavorless, high grade, whey protein isolate that offers 20 grams of protein per serving. Our WHEY OF LIFE mixes instantly in just plain spring water or you can add it to most any beverage. Get the high-grade WHEY OF LIFE protein from Life Priority today and start experiencing the great results that using enough protein can give you!

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 LIFEGUARD™ a High-Quality Multi-Vitamin, Multi-Mineral 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.

Guys Guide to a Healthier Lifestyle

It’s not an unknown fact: most men only go to the doctor when they are sick. This creates the generalization that men are much too casual or disinterested in their health. We urge that men (and women) get an annual physical so they can address any underlying concerns that may be present in their health so they can be referred to a specialist if need be. We also urge that men become at least a little interested in their health and start following these easy steps to live a balanced healthy lifestyle.

  1. Weight Management 

Maintain a healthy weight through a well-balanced diet and exercise. The male body tends to change with age as testosterone levels begin to decline. Muscle mass becomes harder to keep and unhealthy pounds can start to add up. Make sure you are continuing exercise and staying active through these periods to avoid drastic changes in your muscle and heart health. Muscle Memory may be a good supplement to add to your diet if you have a need for muscle recovery and enhancement.

  1. Limit Trans-Fat Consumption

Trans-Fats are a threat to both our waistlines and hearts. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), more than one in three men have heart disease. The American diet that is full of processed, trans-fat ingredients doesn’t help this statistic. Arm yourself against heart disease risks by eliminating or limiting trans-fat in your diet. The AHA recommends closing out trans-fat consumption to 1 g a day. So become diligent in removing this harmful and in some cases, fatal ingredient.

  1. Eat More Fish

Start consuming more fish that contain essential fatty acids. The two essential fatty acids are Omega-6 and Omega-3. They are essential because our bodies don’t produce them on its own, we can only get them from our diets. Salmon, mackerel, herring, and albacore tuna all contain high amounts of essential oils. There is not set daily recommendation for essential oils, but some health organizations advise 250-500 mg per day. This number goes up if you have coronary artery disease. If you are not consuming enough fish in your diet alone, consider Omega-3 Priority for supplementation.

  1. Lycopene Influence

Lycopene is an antioxidant that gives certain foods their red coloring. This antioxidant is known for its anti-cancer properties most notably, prostate cancer. With prostate cancer being the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, it is critical that men take preventative measures. Lycopene can be found in tomatoes, watermelon, guava and pink grapefruit. The most abundant of these sources are tomatoes, and lycopene’s impact is increased when the tomatoes are cooked. If you are a male and not getting enough of these foods in your diet, our Prostate Priority contains 30 mg per serving as well as other ingredients to help maintain healthy prostate functioning.

  1. Take a Multivitamin

Not all vitamins are created equal. Before purchasing, it is important to do your research and make sure that you are spending your money on a quality product. When it comes to multivitamins, their function is to fill any diet “holes” that you may have that are inhibiting your immune system operation. Lifeguard is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to keep diets balanced and immune systems strong for fighting diseases.

  1. Maintain Regular Physicals with your Health Care Professional

As mentioned, men are the worst offenders of doctor visit ducking. It is important that you try to break that habit. A yearly physical can keep you in check and address any concerns should they arise. Men are more susceptible to stress, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and depression so please make sure you are getting screened and treated for these and any other health concerns.

Guys, take our advice and incorporate these easy tips to become a healthier man!

Greg Pryor – September 2018 Men’s Health!

September Celebrates of Men’s Health!

In today’s fast-paced lifestyles, most men are 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 are 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 fish 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.

Testimonial: Dave Wickersham- Former MLB Pitcher

A great friend, and former MLB pitcher, Dave Wickersham is a valued Life Priority customer.

In a 10-season career, Wickersham posted a 68–57 record with 638 strikeouts and a 3.66 ERA in 1123 innings, including 29 complete games, five shutouts and 19 saves. Notably, Wickersham has been one of four players (fellow pitchers Aurelio Monteagudo, Moe Drabowsky and Ken Sanders being the other three) to play for both Kansas City-based major league teams, the Athletics and Royals. (sourced from Baseball Reference)

Wickersham also pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Kansas City Royals.

Dave Wickersham signed his autograph with a Bible verse, Colossians 3:17: “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

Recently, I asked Dave a few baseball questions and his use of dietary supplements.

The following is a Q & A with Dave:

Greg:  What is a good memory about playing in MLB?

Dave: Being able to play with and against the best players in the world for 10 years.

Greg:  What was your biggest personal thrill in your Royals career?

Dave:  Coming in relief against the Yanks with the bases loaded and none out and getting out of it with no runs scored.

Greg:  Would you have done anything differently during your career?

Dave:  I can’t think of anything that I would have done differently accept trying for a bigger contract after winning 19 games!

Greg:  Why do you use dietary supplements?

Dave:  Because they have helped me live a better quality of life.

Greg:  Why do you use products from Life Priority (www.lifepriority.com)?

Dave: Because of the Pryor’s’ enthusiasm for the products. They have never led me astray.

When is the Best Time to Exercise?

Fit Women on Exercise BikesWhen is the Best Time to Exercise?

One of the most controversial subjects in the fitness world is what time of day is the best time to exercise. Scientists have been going back and forth on this for years.  It is still inconclusive.  That was also a very common question from my clients as a personal trainer. The answer I would give them was that it doesn’t matter.  I would rather see you work out at any time as long as you get it in.  It’s whatever time works for you and whatever time you will stick with.  For me personally, exercise tends to wire me and give me energy, therefore I am not able to work out at night.

For my body, morning exercise works best for me but I am also a morning person. If you are a night owl or work nights, then it may be better for you to work out at night.  I also know people who get a second wind at noon or on their lunch hour.  I personally feel my best and have the most energy to work out between the hours of 9:00am and 1:00pm.  If you only have time to work out at 5:30 in the morning and you think you can stick to this routine, then by all means please get in a routine at 5:30 in the morning!  At the end of the day, what matters is that you did something, even if it is only being able to squeeze in a 15 minute walk at 8:00pm after dinner. If you are trying to lose weight, science is still science and it comes down to calories in and calories out.  The bottom line is that it doesn’t really matter what time of day you exercise as long as you get it in somewhere and you do what you know you can stick to.

A couple of products that I love and use myself to get me motivated to exercise are the Lift and Muscle Memory from Life MuscleMemory_550x550Priority. The Lift can help you get in the mood to exercise if you are feeling a little unmotivated that day.  Also the Muscle Memory helps muscle recovery due to the Amino Acid L-Arginine.  I have found that these two products when used together, give me the best workouts and help my body recover for the next workout!

In the end, exercise should be fun and you should not dread it.  If this means that you need to wait until noon on your lunch hour to feel energetic to take a walk, then so be it.  At least you have done something and you are on your way to a healthier lifestyle!

What Happens to MLB Players Now That The Season Is Over?

“What Happens to MLB Players Now That The Season Is Over? by Greg PryorGreg Royals 1985

What a great World Series!  The great game of baseball and another Fall Classic showed the world why, in my opinion, baseball is the best team sport ever invented.  For most professional baseball players their “cherished” off season is here. A small percentage of players will go to play winter ball in Mexico, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, or the Dominican Republic.  Most players will stay in the States and enjoy their families who they don’t get to see much during the season.

One of the bad things that happens to players on clubs that make the postseason, especially the Indians and the Cubs, is that they will have a much shorter off season. In just 4 short months (exactly 120 days), players on World Series teams will be reporting to spring training.  The “real” MLB ballplayers know that their 2017 season has already begun and they are not wasting time getting ready.

The story of the 2016 MLB World Champs began on the first day of spring training last March at their training site in Arizona.  In reality, the beginning of a baseball season for a “real” MLB player begins on the day that his season ends.  As one who participated in 16 seasons of pro baseball, the 7 month grind of no weekends off and an average of 28 games per month from March to October is not for the feeble minded or physically weak. No offense to the talented players in the NFL, NBA, and NHL who have their own tough grind, but I consider the “combined” mental and physical stress of a MLB season to be the toughest of all sports.  Proper off season preparation by individual players is one of the most important aspects of winning a World Championship.  The story of what George Brett did between the end of the 1984 and the beginning of the 1985 season is a good example.

In 1984, the Kansas City Royals won the American League West Division title but George had one of his worst seasons.  For him, hitting a paltry .284 and driving in only 69 runs was very disappointing and he was challenged by the then-owner, Avron Fogelman, to show people the real Brett in ’85.  George used the off-season to get ready and every Royals fan remembers what happened.  George added 50 points to his average, doubled his RBI output and the Royals went on their first World Series crown.  George put in the workout time during the off season and it paid off.

Next March, around 1,300 pro ballplayers, those on MLB rosters and invitees, will report to the MLB spring training sites of their team.  Older players will be trying to keep their jobs and younger players will be trying to take someone else’s job.  A few will report with jobs locked up because of the size of their contract or the high level of their ability.  Regardless of any of that though, the amount of physical work that they all will have put in over the previous 5 months (but just 4 months for the World Series teams) will determine what kind of season that they, and their teams, will have.

Most MLB players have their own winter workout regimen. The team trainer will give them suggestions and workout schedules to follow but most players will be on their own program.  Many MLB players hire personal trainers to oversee their grueling workouts and to hold them accountable for showing up and putting in the effort.

Being motivated to do effective offseason work is one thing, but the most difficult part of getting ready for another MLB season is to determine what exercises to do, what muscle groups to use, how often to exercise and how many hours or days to rest between exercises.  Every offseason I would try and put on 10-15 lbs of muscle by hiring a trainer to “punish” me during workouts.  I wanted to break my muscles down enough so that they would grow back stronger.  At age 21, I weighed 165 pounds when I signed my first pro contract.  Over my 10 yr. MLB career my weight was between 185-190 lbs. Had I not gotten stronger and quicker, I never would have earned a MLB job.

Another very important aspect of off season conditioning is the diet.  Although MLB players probably eat nutritious meals, I am confident that most use some dietary supplements to help them recover more quickly from workouts.  I did not know until after I was done playing that there are many nutrients not easily found in a decent diet that can have a wonderful effect on muscle recovery after workouts. Some are best used before workouts and some are best used afterwards.

In 1994, my wife and I formed a health and nutrition company called Life Priority, Inc. Life Priority can be located at www.lifepriority.com and offers a line of high quality, results-oriented, scientifically-formulated health supplements to the marketplace.  If you are interested in learning how to get better workouts as a pro player or a weekend warrior, please contact me at customerservice@lifepriority.com.  I will be glad to help evaluate your current regimen and offer time-tested solutions to help you get better results from your workouts.  In 1991, I became a customer of the Life Priority products and, because of my results and the results of others, I joined the health industry.  Make your decision now! The “off season” is shorter than you think!  Get ready for a great 2017!

Greg Pryor: Fighting the Stress of Post Season Baseball

KC Royals 1985 World Series Win

KC Royals 1985 World Series Win

After I attended my first MLB game in Cleveland, Ohio as a 7-year-old, I became “addicted” to baseball.  Fortunately I was able to spend 16 seasons as a professional player (5 seasons for the Kansas City Royals).  I have experienced the depths of stressful feelings that baseball can create, on and off the field.  Last season, all KC Royals fans were treated to one of the best postseason runs in baseball history.  I noticed a resurgence of incredible love for Royals baseball from thousands of “veteran” fans and new ones.

We were constantly on the edge of our seats during the month of September and October as we lost work time and sleep!  Some of us forgot what day of the week it was! From the glorious night of last season’s Wild Card game versus the Oakland A’s to the last out of the World Series….WE FELT STRESSED!

The ’15 Royals team has been so much fun to watch from spring training to the inevitable day we clinched our first American League Central Division title since 1985! We are thinking ahead of who our opponents might be in the Division playoffs, and, hopefully, the American League championship and World Series game. Again, it is STRESS time for many Royals fans!

As a co-owner of a health and nutrition company for the past 20 years (lifepriority.com), this is a great time to inform you about how stress affects us and offer some information that might help increase your natural defense systems to deal with the stress in our lives, especially all Royals fans!

Stress is the body’s natural response to threatening situations, and it affects everyone. Stress can be good, like buying a

brainnew car, or bad, like running up credit cards. Either way, your body and mind react to such situations with a heightened state of readiness, which is called the “fight or flight” response. This reaction causes your brain to make hormones including adrenaline and cortisol.

Adrenaline gives you more energy by increasing your heart rate and blood pressure.  Cortisol increases the amount of glucose in your blood and impairs bodily functions that might be harmful in a fight or flight situation, such as digestion and reproduction. This can help you perform well on a test or at a sporting event, but it can also distract you, keep you up at night, and make you lose your appetite.

Stress becomes chronic when your body does not shut off its stress response, so you are always in a heightened state of readiness.  This affects your immune system and can lead to mental and physical health problems.

One of the ways that you can defend yourself is to make sure that you provide your body with stress-reducing nutrients through your diet. To ensure that your diet provides you with enough of those nutrients, you should consider supplementing your diet with a potent, high-quality multi-vitamin with adequate amounts of B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D3, and omega-3 fatty acid. Life Priority offers the following products that allow you to touch all of your nutritional bases so put them into your daily nutritional “lineup”: One Per Meal Lifeguard, Sunlife, Omega-3 Priority, Vita C2, Lift and Mind.  Read about these great products and other Life Priority products at www.lifepriority.com today!

Can you Revive your Memory from 1985?

Members of 1985 Royals World Series Team “Revive ’85”

Recently, the Kansas City Baseball Historical Society sponsored a 30th anniversary reunion for members of the ’85 Kansas City Royals World Series championship team.  The event, held past August at the NKC Harrah’s Casino, drew close to 500 fans who were eager to help celebrate the most important milestone in the history of Kansas City baseball, a World Series Championship.

From ’55-’67, Kansas City had a MLB franchise, the Athletics (A’s).  In ’69, A’s owner, Charlie Finley, moved his franchise to Oakland, CA.   Kansas City was without a MLB team for the next 5 years.  In ’73, Ewing Kauffman brought MLB back to KC and named his new team, the Royals.  The Royals appeared in the MLB playoffs in ’76, ’77, ’78, ’80, ’81, and ’84.  Prior to winning their World Series championship in ’85, the closest that the Royals came to winning a crown was in the ’80 World Series when they were defeated by the Philadelphia Phillies.

At the reunion, many old time Kansas City A’s and Royals fans were treated to many memorable stories by members of the ’85 team, Jim Sundberg, C, Charlie Liebrandt, P, Buddy Biancalana, SS, and Pat Sheridan, OF.  Also attending Royals Hall of Famers, Hal McCrae, Frank White, Dennis Leonard, and Bret Saberhagen.  Other players and/or wives attending were Danny Jackson, Mike Jones, Lynn Jones, Darryl Motley, Steve Farr, Greg Pryor, trainer, Mickey Cobb, Nancy Howser and Janie Quisenberry-Stone

One of the great treasures that many of us are blessed with is our memory.  Many people who witnessed the World Series in ’85 use their memory to describe events to those who were born after ’85 or were too young to remember. As people age, we sometimes chuckle that we are “losing” our memory.  It is not a laughing matter! Our memories can be enhanced through the use of certain essential nutrients!

Choline is an essential nutrient and it’s primary function is to aid in the health benefits of the brain relating to memory, focus and concentration. Choline is an important nutrient during the prenatal development of offspring and contributes heavily to the development of the brain. Choline assists in a wide range of functions including motor control and memory, a deficiency may be related to neurological disorders.

In “94, my wife, Michelle, and I formed our health and nutritional company, Life Priority. We learned the importance of using high quality nutrients to help support and insure your mental and physical health.
