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.

Keeping a Healthy Attitude Through the Holidays!

“Everything that happens in your brain … every memory … every thought … every emotion … every innovation … every “wow, that’s great!” …Durk Pearson, Scientist, Author-Life Extension

After spending 16 years as a professional baseball player (5 years in KC with the Royals), I really enjoyed the 2012 post-season baseball games, especially the World Series.   To me, the end of the World Series signals the beginning of the wretched winter months in KC.  This article may help you deal with “baseball withdrawal” and the cold, grey winter months ahead.

When I was a player, I never imagined that, in 2012, I would be writing tips for readers on how to use certain nutrients to help the brain deal with life in the Midwest.  Having spent my high school and college years in Florida, I couldn’t believe that people would live in a climate where the sun was absent for weeks at a time.  Now, as a full-time Kansas resident since ’87, a father of 3 grown daughters, and a small-business owner since ’94, I know why we live here.

Give Your Brain a LIFT With Phenylalanine-natural mood elevator!

I wish that I knew about the value of using phenylalanine when I was playing in the major leagues.  Sometimes I was mentally exhausted before many games but I still had to perform in front of thousands of people.  I didn’t find out about phenylalanine until 1991, 4 years after I retired.  I would have used it before every game I played if I had to do it all over again.

What is Phenylalanine?

Phenylalanine a nutritional supplement that can help curb your appetite and elevates your mood

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that acts as an appetite suppressant by promoting the release of intestinal hormone-cholecystokinin-which signals the brain to feel satiated after eating.

Here’s how appetite control works: cholecystokinin (CCK) is released as food enters the stomach. It tells the digestion to slow down and then gives the message to the brain that you are ‘full’… so your appetite naturally decreases. This takes time – usually around 20 minutes. If you take Phenylalanine in 30 minutes to one hour before eating a meal, you’ll notice that you’ll feel full faster- so you don’t fill up on extra calories that you don’t need! And not only that, you’ll stay full longer so you don’t get that late afternoon or after-dinner snack attack. Before you know it, those extra pounds you’ve been carrying around will start to melt away-safely and effortlessly.

Lose weight and stay positive!

Once you have made up your mind to lose weight, you should make that commitment and go into it with a positive attitude. Think like a winner, and envision yourself the way you want to look and feel. Don’t get discouraged if you slip now and then, and eat something you know you shouldn’t have. We’re all human. If you eat something you know isn’t good for you, enjoy it without feeling guilty. You don’t have to be perfect! It’s not what you do occasionally that counts, it’s what you do consistently on a daily basis.

 Stay Mentally Sharp

Phenylalanine also helps boost mental awareness and energy by stimulating the brain using “natural” caffeine. So instead of reaching for an energy drink that will only leave you with a sugar high, I choose to use a more natural approach. If I’m more alert and have more energy, I feel ready to take on the various challenges of the day and am more apt to stay true with my dietary regiment.

 Boosts Mood

According to Priscilla Slagle, M.D., author of The Way Up From Down, “Diet changes and natural supplements an alter your brain chemistry so that you can think and perceive positively.” Phenylalanine is found in a variety of foods, including almonds, avocados, bananas, brown rice, cheese, corn, eggs, fish, lima beans, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and soy products. Problem is, you’d have to eat lots of extra calories in order to get an effective amount. Taking a supplement of phenylalanine is much easier.

I invite you to investigate ways that you can have the best winter of your life.  If you have mental fatigue and lack motivation,  I invite you to use either LIFT and/or LIFT CAPS from Life Priority at www.lifepriority.com.  A serving of either product contains 600 mg of phenylalanine per serving (cost is about .50/serving!).  Both products contain other co-factors that enhance the effects of the phenylalanine.  Both products, created by highly-intelligent scientists, work in about 30 minutes and will help you feel bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for about 4 to 6 hours.

Vitamin D-3 “Sunlife” for Body and Brain!

Vitamin D-3 is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that plays a role in many important body functions. Your body stores vitamin D and can make it when your skin is exposed to sunlight.  It is best known for working with calcium in your body to help build and maintain strong bones. My suggestion on taking  a Vitamin D-3 supplement: be sure it’s cholecalciferol and not ergocalciferol.

Immunity is reduced or hampered if Vitamin D-3 levels are low in our body. Many experts recommend 5,000 or more international units of Vitamin D-3 per day to help boost the immune system. It is thought that the cough and cold season may in part be due to lack of adequate sun exposure during the winter months. Supplementing with Vitamin D-3 should help boost immunity and resistance to many common viruses.

Lastly, there is a concept called cognitive reserve. It explains why some peoples’ brains have the physical changes of disease but none of the symptoms. Those without the extra connections and without healthy brain tissue are more likely to suffer the symptoms earlier. Vitamin D plays an important role in the creation of and integration of new brain cells.  Personally, I use 4,000 iu of vitamin D-3 per day (2,000 iu 2 times a day) through my Life Priority product, Sunlife, available at www.lifepriority.com.

Make a good Joint Decision!-Keep your Body Moving Make the right decision for your Joints

Nutrition and Exercise are so important to staying healthy. I strongly suggest using a glucosamine supplement to keep the joints and cartridge healthy. My favorite is joint Decision or Total Joint Complex. The daily supplementing of glucosamine has been well establish in the last 15 years!

In 1994, Life Priority Established to Offer High-Quality Products

Life Priority began in 1994 with the collaborated efforts of Life Priority co-owners, Greg & Michelle Pryor and  Life Extension Scientists, Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw as an effort to offer high-quality supplements to everyone. As a former professional baseball player, I know how important physical and mental health are to daily success, and Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw developed outstanding scientific formulas to deliver the best possible nutritional products. Our goal and motto is: “Your Life, Our Priority.”

The following is Greg Pryor‘s Interview on the creation of Life Priority Inc. Designer Food Formulas with Life Extension Scientist Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw in 1994. 

Sandy:  Integrity is so important when buying nutrient formulations and vitamins.  The certified quality on the Life Priority products means that those products are being manufactured by companies we have approved to do the manufacturing and they are following our specifications on how those products are to be made in terms of quality control, where the ingredients come from, everything, because we’re taking those formulas ourselves so the quality is very important to us.

Durk:  We’re a lot stricter than the FDA’s good manufacturing practices.  Our good manufacturing practices have a lot more requirements on them then the FDA’s.

Sandy:  And it’s so true about the flavors, we’ve just been bowled over, it’s so fantastic.  Especially the Muscle Memory, arginine, choline formula.  When we tasted that we could hardly believe it, it was like some kind of a new super soft drink somebody put in a bottle, it was taking the world by storm.  It tasted great.  We prefer to use that.  It’s the best tasting arginine formula I’ve ever tried.

Durk:  If you add a little bit of club soda to it to give it a little bit of fizz, then the flavor comes out even more.  The natural fruit flavor extract that we use is that the bubbles really bring out the bouquet.  People have asked us why we use natural fruit flavoring rather than the less expensive synthetic ones and the answer is simple.  It’s the difference between a bottle of fine wine and a glass of kool-aid.  The kool-aid isn’t going to hurt you, there is nothing harmful about the synthetic flavor, its just that there is one flavor out of hundreds and hundreds of flavors that any natural fruit has.  If you’re going to drink something for the rest of your life you want to have the rich textured flavor that you’re not going to get bored with after 5 minutes.

Durk:  We heard about Dr. Denam Harmon’s free radical series of aging.  Free radicals are damaging molecules with an up-paired electron.  You’ve probable heard of antioxidants like vitamins C and E and beta carotene.  Well one of the main functions of these antioxidant nutrients is to protect you from free radicals.  Free radicals play a significant role in cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer, quite likely aging itself.

Sandy:  In fact, free radicals are a normal toxic waste.  They are produced naturally in your body just by the process of your being alive, every time that you metabolize food, every time you breathe.  The chemical reactions that go on naturally have the effect of creating free radicals.  Your body has a large number of defensive mechanisms to prevent those free radicals from causing damage.  One of the most important ones is the antioxidant nutrients, most of which you have to get from your diet because you can’t make them.  Things like vitamin E, vitamin C, and beta carotene.  Now it’s understood that it’s very important you get extra quantities of these materials from supplements and don’t just depend on food, because even a well chosen diet is very limited in the amount of some of the nutrients you can get.  An example is vitamin E, even in a real good diet; probably the most you’re going to get are maybe 15U a day.  Now evidence is showing 100U of vitamin E a day or more provides considerably more benefit than just the 15U you can get in a diet.

Durk:  The Vita-C2 is one of our oldest formulations we developed back in early the 1970’s.  Vitamin C is not just Vitamin C; there are a lot of different types.  For example, the most common type that you have is ascorbic acid, which is quite acidic.  Sometimes people who take an acidic tablet get diarrhea, because of inner stomach pain.  The ascorbic acid in a concentrated solution next to an un-dissolved vitamin C tablet can damage your mucus membranes.  If you doubt this, get a vitamin C tablet, stick it in your cheek pouch and I guarantee you, long before it’s dissolved that ascorbic acid tablet will have given you a chemical burn in your mucus membranes.  You have fewer pain sensors in the gut but never the less it does cause irritation and that is one of the reasons people get diarrhea when they take vitamin C tablets, particularly slow dissolving ones.  What we did to solve that problem was first, we didn’t use ascorbic acid, and we used calcium ascorbate.  This is a non-acidic calcium salt of vitamin C, made by Hoffman-LaRoche, the best vitamin C manufacturer in the world.  The calcium ascorbate is non-acidic so you don’t have to worry about getting an acid burn and it’s a very good high bio-availability source of calcium itself, so you get an extra bonus from that.  Moreover, because a lot of people have trouble dissolving the tablets we have a very simple solution.  We don’t use tablets.  The Vita-C2 is in the form of powder in a capsule and that will dissolve very reliably within ten minutes or so after you swallow it.  You may say, “What’s this Vita-C2, what’s the C2 part?”  The C2 is that there are two entirely different types of vitamin C in there.  One is the calcium ascorbate which is the water-soluble form of vitamin C that provides antioxidant protection to the watery parts of your body.  The other part is ascorbyl palmitate, the fat-soluble form of vitamin C that is a very powerful antioxidant synergist that makes other antioxidants like vitamin E function better.  Unlike the regular vitamin C the ascorbyl palmitate is the type of vitamin C that can dissolve in fatty tissues in your body.  Sandy and I have been using that ourselves for over twenty years now and we take it 4 times a day.  To get maximum benefits from vitamin C, it is important to take it more than once a day.  In fact I don’t know of a single scientific paper where any dose of vitamin C, even very large ones given once a day, provides any benefit other than curing scurvy or preventing it.  Your body can’t store large amounts of vitamin C.

Sandy:  This is true for all of the water-soluble vitamins such as the B vitamin and vitamin C.  They are excreted from your body very rapidly in the urine and in order to maintain the high serum levels that you want circulating in your blood stream you need to take the vitamin C at least 3 times a day and we take it 4 times a day for even better distribution.

Durk:  We take it once when we get up in the morning, again with lunch, again with dinner and again at bedtime.  To give you an idea of how fast the water-soluble vitamins leave your body, go to a health food store and get a 25 mg tablet of vitamin B2, riboflavin, a vitamin that is bright yellow in color.  Swallow that and in about a half an hour later your urine will be colored sort of a bright fluorescent yellow.  A couple of hours after that for after three hours your urine will be faded back to pail again.  The B2 leaves your body a little bit faster than vitamin C, but not much.  Once you take vitamin C, the level in your serum increases for a couple of hours and then it starts dropping and in about 6 hours, it’s down to about half of what it was at the peak, so its important to take these vitamins 3-4 times a day.

The One-Per-Meal Lifeguard actually has an even longer evolution, that’s an evolution from our first antioxidant nutrient supplement formula that we designed for ourselves back in 1968 after we heard of Dr. Denam Harmon’s free radical series of aging and age related diseases.

Sandy:  That’s like our combination formula; it was just vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E.  We’ve learned a great deal since then.  There’s been a lot of unofficial research since that time and we now have a formulation that has about 2 dozen different nutrients in it.  It’s largely of antioxidants.  Antioxidants work together in your body.  You get more benefit from vitamin C by having other antioxidant vitamins like the B vitamins and so forth along with it then just taking the vitamin C.

Durk:  The One-Per-Meal Lifeguard is basically the most vitamin protection we can fit in one capsule that a human being can swallow.  It’s designed to be taken one per meal and an optional one at bedtime.  This is not a one per day formulation.  Don’t use it just once a day.  The reason for that is there are certain essential nutrients.  Copper, for example.  You won’t be getting the recommended daily allowance if you only take one per day.  You wouldn’t want to take 4 times the recommended daily allowance of copper, which would be too much.  So as a result, it is important to follow the instructions on the bottles of the formulations.  The One-Per-Meal Lifeguard is designed to be taken with each meal and one at bedtime, a total of 3-4 times a day.  If you don’t eat three meals a day, take one when you get up, one around noon and one at bedtime.

Durk:  The Lift is another formula that we developed, like all the products for our own personal use.  The Lift is something we designed back in the early 1980’s as a result of our experiences on the publicity tours for our billion copy best seller Life Extension of Practical Scientific Approach.  Warner’s set us out on publicity tours where we were working up to 18 hours a day and under a lot of stress, because people were asking us health questions and if we gave them the wrong answer we could really hurt somebody.

Sandy:  Also, we had to answer very, very quickly when we were asked a question and there wasn’t anytime to spend thinking about things.  We had to have the answers right at the tip of our tongues, and had to be able to answer very difficult questions in language that was simple enough that a general audience could understand and we were very good at that, but we found that over the course of a long day of doing that, wiped us out.  We were exhausted and just drained by the end of the day.

Durk:  When we got back from the first publicity tour we knew that there would be more so we did research in the National Library of Medicine to find out what makes your get up and go, get up and go and how far it went to.

Sandy:  We just looked at the various important substances that are made in your brain and that are used there for things like energy and fast recall and all the things you need to be able to do in order to function at a high level.

Durk:  One of these is a neurotransmitter called noradrenaline.  This is not a drug, it is a natural substance made by certain nerve cells in your brain from nutrients in your diet that’s used to transmit messages from one nerve to another which is why it’s called a neurotransmitter.  Noradrenaline is your brain’s version of adrenaline.  Its nature’s get up and go juice.  When a frog gets excited it releases a bunch of noradrenaline, it really hops to it, the same thing happens with human beings.

Sandy:  That’s what is giving a lot of energy when you get excited about something and when you’re doing a lot of work on something that you’re getting rewarded for, that you feel good about doing and you can just keep on going.  You don’t have an unlimited supply of noradrenaline and after you’ve been at this hard work for a certain period of time you just get pooped out, you just kind of burn out.

Durk:  Especially if you’re not eating well, not eating right or eating irregularly, you just run out of the nutrients that your brain needs, so a lot of people at that point take a cup of coffee.  Everybody who uses coffee knows that the first cup of coffee in the morning really makes you bright eyed, bushy tailed and gives you a lot of energy and get up and go.  The second one doesn’t do as much as the first and the third one does less that the second and the fourth less than the third and by the end of the day additional cups of coffee just sort of make you feel spaced out and jittery.  What’s going is pretty simple to understand.  Two major effects of caffeine are 1) it causes you to release more noradrenaline and 2) it causes you to become more sensitive to noradrenaline.  The problem is, it doesn’t help you make anymore so its sort of like burning your candle at both ends, gets you up in the morning faster, but you end up more wiped out in the afternoon because it hasn’t helped you to make anymore.  What Lift is, is a combination of 80 mg of caffeine, the same amount of caffeine you have in the average cup of coffee plus a system of nutrients that your brain can use to make more noradrenaline.  It’s a long lasting version of coffee.  You might say the thinking mans type of coffee because it can give you a lot of get up and go.   If after a long hard day you can drink a cup of coffee at 9:00 at night and fall asleep at 10:00, don’t think you can do that with the Lift because, by the end of the day you have used up a lot of noradrenaline and that cup of coffee doesn’t help to replace it so you don’t have a lot of noradrenaline for the caffeine to activate.  If you try taking a glass of Lift at 9:00 at night there is a real good chance you’re not going to get to sleep until the wee hours in the morning, on the other hand if you have to drive all night that could be a real lifesaver.

Sandy:  Its not that it’s going to make it safe to be driving all night as if you were driving during the day but it is certainly an advantage over not having nutritional support when you’re doing something like that.

Durk:  The time you most notice the effect of the Lift is really when you’re most fatigued, when you’re most wiped out.  If you take a glass of it Sunday morning you may not notice a whole lot happening, on the other hand, if after getting home from work on a Friday evening and you’re all wiped out from a hard week’s work and the long commute home and you’re about to fall asleep in front of the TV set, take a Lift and you’ll really notice the difference.  Remember when you’re introducing your friends to Lift make sure that it is at a time when they are really feeling tired and fatigued because they’ll notice the benefits of it the most under those conditions.

Sandy:  Be sure you are using it too because they’re going say to you, “Wow where did you get all of that energy from, how come you’re all full of energy and I’m all pooped out.”

Durk:  Whenever you go out to sell these formulas make sure you’re full of Lift.  One thing to keep in mind about Lift is that in order for one of the nutrients, the essential nutrient amino acid called phenylalanine that’s contained in the Lift, is something that your brain can use to make noradrenaline, and for this to get into your brain you don’t want to compete with other proteins.  If you take Lift along with a meal that has a lot of protein in it, very little will happen.  If you take it when you don’t have a lot of protein in your stomach you get much better results because more of that phenylalanine can get in the brain.  The competition between different amino acids from the food can get in the brain.

Sandy:  Proteins are made out of amino acids linked together and they get broken down in your stomach and absorbed.  As Durk said, different amino acids compete with one other to get into your brain.  They all sort of hop on to the same ferry that’s taking them across from the general circulation into the brain and these ferry’s can only hold so much, so they compete with one another and that’s the reason why with certain formulas like the Lift its good to take it on an empty stomach, but when you haven’t been eating protein.

Durk:  The Mind is another formula that we have been using ever since we came up with it back in the early 70’s, however for the first several years it was the most foul tasting stuff you could imagine.  We loved what it did for our mind.  The Mind contains choline and complimentary nutrients that your brain can use to make more acetylcholine, another neurotransmitter, and one that’s involved in focus, concentration, attention, verbal behavior and memory.  Any time you’re dealing with words you’re using up acetylcholine.  It is also what makes your muscles contract.  We like the effects of this so much that even though it tasted sort of like dog vomit smells or like fish it really did good things for us so every morning we literally held our noses and gagged it down.

Sandy:  One day we looked at each other and said, “Hay, we don’t have to put up with this, we know a lot about flavor chemistry.  Let’s design our own flavor and make this taste good.” We are sick and tired of hating it every time we take it.

Durk:  We’re gourmets, we’re scientists, we’re flavor chemists, members of the Institute for Food Technologists, we got a shelf full of books on flavor chemistry, by golly we ought to be able to figure this one out and if we can solve this problem we can solve anything.  We came up with the Mind formula which tastes good, in fact its’ so good an amateur gourmet chef  friend of ours pours it over shaved ice to make a sherbet appetizer at the start of some of his homemade gourmet meals.  That says a whole lot about something that once sort of tasted and smelled like rotten fish.

Durk:  The combination of the Lift and the Mind is really excellent.  They work together. They are two different sets of nutrients that activate two different neurotransmitter systems.  The Mind gives you the acetylcholine, the Lift gives you the noradrenaline and together you got get up and go, focus concentration and the ability to direct all of that energy.  You will also find that it really helps you to talk too.  If you go out there and try to sell these formulas, do yourself a favor; be full of Lift and Mind. We wouldn’t do a talk like this or a lecture without having some of that in us.

Sandy:  We wouldn’t write an article either.  That’s the general preparation, is to use the Mind and the Lift about a half an hour to an hour beforehand.  From a very long experience we found that it makes us able to talk longer, to be at our best longer and our writing has increased not only in quality but also in quantity.

Durk:  Now protein doesn’t prevent the active ingredients in Mind from getting into your brain.  It slows down the absorption from the gut a little so it doesn’t come out quite as fast.  It will still work just as fine if you take it on top of a big steak.

Durk:  The Willpower Tea was another formula that we developed because of a problem we had.  Mainly when we went out on these publicity tours, we had a million copy best sellers and Warner Book Company treated us like platinum rock stars.

Sandy:  They had limos driving us around and they even had us tell them what hotels we wanted to stay at.  We got to choose the hotels.  Naturally we said, “Well some hotels have the really terrific restaurants, why don’t you put us at those.”  That is just what they did and boy did we eat good food. When food is really good you eat much more than you need to be full.  You just keep on eating and eating.

Durk:  After five weeks of three or four appetizers and a seven course main meal and three or four desserts, I gained 22 pounds, Sandy gained about 10, and at that point we realized we’d either have to forgo all this yummy free food, this was back in the 80’s we were putting away about $200 worth of gourmet food a day on Warner’s credit card.  They didn’t mind at all because unlike platinum rock groups we weren’t tearing up hotel rooms or anything like that or getting arrested.

Sandy:  They figured if they treated us well we would do a good job and that was true, we did a real good job and at the end of the day, after we had put in a real hard days work we would go and have these fantastic gourmet meals.

Durk:  They don’t have scales in the bathrooms of hotels with gourmet restaurants for pretty obvious reasons.  We were really shocked when we came back.  We started doing a literature search in the National Library of Medicine database to find out what it is that made some people fat and why other people eating the same amount of foods and getting the same amount of exercise stayed thin.  Why do some people, even on low calorie diets remain very obese and other people can eat like pigs and stay skinny.  It’s not just a matter of calories that you eat and it’s not just a matter of how much exercise you do.  We developed the Willpower Tea as sort of a technological fix to help us be able to be sedentary middle aged gourmets without turning into great big balls of fat.

Sandy:  That was something that we had to do all right.  As a result of doing all that research though to figure out how to be able to enjoy all of that food and not get fat, we got enough material and we actually wrote a best selling book, The Life Extension Weight Loss Program.  That book is out of print now but it is available in a lot of libraries and occasionally you find it in used book stores.  The Willpower Tea has done for us exactly what we wanted it to do and today we weigh the same as we did in our early twenties.  We don’t have to skip the eating, the things that we like to eat, and that’s the good part.

Durk:  There is a lot more in the Willpower Tea than just the herb that we use in it as well.  There are a lot of antioxidant vitamins and other nutrients that modify the effect of the herb.  That herb has been used for over 5000 years of recorded history, so it’s been around for quite a while.  However, it is important that you read the instructions on the bottle of Willpower Tea.  There are people with certain medical conditions such hypertension (high blood pressure) and cardiac arrhythmia’s taking certain unusual types of prescription drugs like MAO (monoamine oxidase)  inhibitors who shouldn’t be using it.  All that information is on the back of the bottle, but please read it before you use it.   Just because something is as natural product doesn’t mean that it’s perfectly safe for everybody under all conditions so please read the instructions.  We’d very much appreciate that.

Durk:  The Muscle Memory is a formula that we started working on back in 1976 and started doing experiments on ourselves with it in 1979.  I really wish we could tell you a whole lot more about it, but unfortunately about 98% of what we have to say about it the FDA would consider medical health claims and the FDA thinks it has the right to violate the First Amendment and that the First Amendment doesn’t apply to them.

Sandy:  Remember that the First Amendment is the amendment that guarantees freedom of speech and of the press and it doesn’t say anything in there about excepting the case of health products.  There is a lot of very important information that researchers have found out about nutrients, things that in some cases have been known for many years that you simply can’t say anything about in any ad or on any label of a nutrient supplement formula which is really quite tragic, because it means that many people who could benefit from nutrient supplements are not using them.  They don’t realize that they could benefit.

Durk:  About all that we can tell you is that it is a favorite of world class athletes of all sorts and that if you take the Muscle Memory about a half an hour or 45 minutes before you go out and do your workout or engage in a vigorous sport you’re going to be very pleasantly surprised about what happens over the next few months when you do that.  If you work out real hard and normally get a lot of aches and pains, you’ll be real surprised what happens the next morning when you wake up.  We really can’t tell you too much about it but I’m sure that people who have had personal experiences with it, other than us, people who are not the designers, like Greg for example, they can tell you person to person, not in the general phone call, exactly what it can do.

Sandy:  If we went out of our lawsuit that we filed against the FDA for violations of the First Amendment Rights of Americans, then it will be possible for people to provide any truthful information about a nutrient supplement or any product that’s regulated by the FDA, not the way it is now, where the only things that you can say about nutrients in the way of health plans is that Calcium supplements may reduce the risk of osteoporosis and folic acid supplements, 400 mcg a day, may reduce the risk of neural tube defect babies.  Although those two things are true, there is still a lot more known about nutrients then those two things.

Durk:  In fact, believe it or not, the FDA has actually made it illegal to say that 400 mcg of folic acid a day from a supplement is more likely to provide protection against these neural tube birth defects like spina-bifida, than 100 mcg of folic acid from food.  You know there is not one scientist on this planet that would agree with that.

Sandy:  That’s one of the things that we’ve charged in our suit and its being taken very seriously by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and we’ll see what happens.

Durk:  Some people have asked us if the formulas consist of natural or synthetic ingredients.  The flavors are all natural.  The vitamins, some of them are synthetic and some are natural.  One of the things to keep in mind is that it is the structure of a molecule that determines its function.  A molecule of vitamin C does what a molecule of vitamin C does because of the way it’s shaped.  Because the pattern they are put together in and it makes no difference whether it came from a rose hip, from an orange or from a stainless steel and glass factory.

Sandy:  That’s one of the things that Linus Pauling had to say.  He didn’t want people to think that they would have to pay for very expensive vitamin C that was called natural vitamin C as compared to the much less expensive synthetic vitamin C which is the same exact molecule.  If you look at the studies that have been done on the health benefits of nutrients, the scientific research has been done almost exclusively with synthetic versions of vitamins, simply because those are pure.  In the case of natural products you have small amounts of other impurities so you do not have a perfectly pure product unless it is very, very expensively purified and that makes it a very expensive product.

Durk:  One time a friend of mine came up to me several years ago and said, I think I’m allergic to vitamin C.  Every time I take vitamin C, I get these lumps on my arms that itch, these hives and I get all itchy and scratchy.  What am I going to do; I’m allergic to vitamin C.”  I said, “I don’t think it’s theoretically possible to be allergic to vitamin C.  I think you’re allergic to some impurity in there.  What are you taking?”  He said, “I’m taking vitamin C from rose hips.”  I said, “Do you realize, for example, are you allergic to anything like goldenrod?”  He said, “I’m very allergic to goldenrod.”  I said, “What do you think happens if a bee lands on a goldenrod and then lands on the rose flower that’s going to make the rosehip?  You get some of that pollen in there.  Try some synthetic vitamin C.  I don’t think you’re going to have any hives anymore and that is exactly what happened, he was allergic to something that was in his natural vitamin C.”  He had no problems with the synthetic material.

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

When I turned 40 – 25 years ago – I reached a major turning point in my life.  I was not too many years from finishing a 16-year career in professional baseball, but I was also married with three young girls and was in a new career.  Tougher than dealing with all of that was the fact that, for the first time in my life, I was faced with feeling the physical and mental aging process.   I had less mental energy; I was losing my muscle mass expanding out of my size 34 jeans.  I started getting frequent mouth ulcers.  I got debilitating flu at least 2 times a year.  Luckily, in 1991, things changed for the better.

I was introduced to two nutritional research scientists, Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, whose lives’ work was to find out how to slow the aging process. Durk and Sandy shared truthful, scientific information with me about how using certain nutrients in adequate amounts could have a dramatic effect on my health.  My wife, Michelle, and I have been sharing this information through our company, Life Priority, since 1994.

As we all age, our risks of getting heart disease, high blood pressure, cancers, dementia, and other diseases increase.  In the case of men, there is also a chance for getting prostate cancer.

Since September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness month, every year I dedicate an article to helping educate men about simple steps for how to improve the health of the prostate gland. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men, with an estimated 239,000 men diagnosed in 2013.

Here are my 4 simple tips to promote prostate health:

  • Get a yearly physical, including a prostate exam, with a healthcare professional.
  • Set lifestyle goals! Educate yourself about what certain nutrients and foods promote overall health, especially prostate heath.
  • Exercise! Be concerned about excess belly fat.
  • Take high-quality dietary supplements! These supplements are formulated to help insure against the gaps in your diet.

For overall health and to encourage a healthy prostate, consider consuming the following list of nutrients that should be in your diet, especially men that are 40 and older:  lycopene, zinc, vitamin D-3, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, and Co-Q 10. 

It is often difficult to get enough of these nutrients from your diet.  You can get most of the nutrients listed above from Life Priority through our One-Per-Meal Lifeguard, Omega-3 Priority, Prostate Priority, Sunlife, 3-Way Calcium, Magnesium Priority, and CoQ Priority products.

I personally use all of the Life Priority supplements listed above every day.  I am almost 65 and I do not take any medications. I no longer get colds, the flu or mouth ulcers.  I have great mental energy and focus.  Most of us can’t get everything that our body needs from the diet, so we hope you’ll reach your own turning point like I did!

Treat yourself to a healthier, more energetic life. Please investigate the information on each product listed above.  For a free, personal, nutritional counseling session with me, send me an email to customerservice@lifepriority.com or call me at 1-800-787-5438. 

Using some baseball terminology, I feel like I can “touch all of my bases” through the use of the 4 different Life Priority supplements below.   All men who want to “score” with their health, including the prostate, can hit a “Grand Slam” by using these 4 supplements every day:

  • One Per Meal Lifeguard™ – First Base – You can’t get to first base nutritionally without using a great multiple vitamin/mineral (multi) after  every meal to fill in the nutrition gaps lacking in your diet. One Per Meal is a potent, research-based, multi with a great blend of all of the B vitamins and potent anti-oxidants.  Take one capsule of One Per Meal Lifeguard™ 3 times a day after meals for a solid “base hit”.
  • Omega-3 Priority™ – Second Base – Get in scoring position with our Omega-3 Priority.  Omega-3 Priority is a pharmaceutical-grade, concentrated fish oil product that is good for both heart and brain health and the prostate.  Getting the essential omega-3 fatty acids in adequate amounts in the diet is difficult.  Researchers believe fish oil helps lower heart disease risk through several mechanisms: It mildly thins the blood, helps prevent arrhythmias, lowers triglyceride and homocysteine levels, and protects the cardiovascular system from inflammation. A 2011 study, a low-fat diet plus a hefty 5-gram daily dose of fish oil slowed prostate cancer cell proliferation in patients awaiting surgery. Another new study found that in healthy young people, fish oil lowered not only inflammation markers, but also anxiety.
  • Prostate Priority™ – Third Base – You are ready to score now with Prostate Priority.  Prostate Priority is a special blend of nutrients combined to support a health prostate.  These nutrients include saw palmetto, lycopene, pygeum, pumpkin seed oil extract, vitamin D3 and zinc.  Lycopene is a carotenoid found in tomatoes, papaya, and other reddish foods, Lycopene appears to increase antioxidant activity in the body protecting against DNA damage according to a recent study. The study also indicated that lycopene lowered heart disease risk factors like hypertension and C-reactive protein (CRP). Some research links high lycopene blood levels with protection against prostate and other cancers; eating lycopene-rich diced tomatoes or tomato paste also appears to protect against UV skin damage.
  • Sunlife™ – Home Plate – You will score with Sunlife.  You will get stranded on third base if you do not get adequate amounts of vitamin D3 in your diet.  One capsule of Sunlife provides 2,000 iu of Vitamin D3 in each capsule.  Despite a flood of recent research news supporting the values of vitamin D3 for the brain, bones, muscles, and the immune system, most people are deficient.  In several studies, low blood levels of vitamin D have been associated with increased heart disease risk.

I have my nutritional bases covered… Do you?  Don’t get caught looking at strike 3! An out of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
