Need Some Productive Sleep?

Need Some Productive Sleep?

sleep

It’s two in the morning, you have a big day ahead, but you can’t stop looking at the clock and dreading the fast approaching alarm. Nights like these seem to become more frequent as you age and losing sleep isn’t good. Doctors suggest 7-8 hours of restful sleep to recharge our batteries for the trials and tribulations of daily life, but how often do we actually feel rested in the morning? The usual routine consists of hitting the snooze button multiple times before falling out of bed and reaching for the first caffeinated beverage. This too is not healthy.

Current sleep aides on the market seem great, but often fall short of achieving the rested feeling when waking. How can you obtain this seemingly fleeting concept? Our answer is Productive Sleep. It’s Life Priority’s latest supplement designed by life extension scientist Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, it was specifically designed to help you feel rested and more alert in the morning.

Most nights, people lay down and think about their day, plan for the next or worry about what’s ultimately out of their control. Quieting the mind isn’t always easy. The Productive Sleep formulas contains gabba, choline, thenuses glycine to help your mind reach a state of relaxation and achieve REM (rapid eye movement) which is the ultimate sleep goal. REM allows you mind to power down and get ready for the next day; it also helps with memory and retention. Glycine helps improve fatigue, liveliness, peppiness and clear-headedness. Productive Sleep utilizes glycine along with other ingredients that combine to deliver one of the top sleep-aides on the market today. Productive Sleep is so great, that you can take it before a nap to get the most out of those necessary 30 minute power naps. Unlike other products, Productive Sleep doesn’t leave you feeling groggy if you don’t sleep for a full eight hours.

Using Productive Sleep can also help you monitor your weight. Studies have shown that sleep deprivation lowers your levels of a hormone that regulates appetite called leptin. So if you don’t get a good night’s rest, you can feel hungrier during the day and overeat which leads to weight gain.

In addition to using Productive Sleep, try exercising at least 30 minutes a day to tire your body, cut out caffeine before bed and use the bathroom before you get in bed. All of these things can help you sleep through the night and feel rested in the morning.

Fifteen Facts You Probably Never Knew About Vitamin D and Sunlight Exposure

Sunshine

(Compiled by Mike Adams, based on an interview with Dr. Michael Holick, author, The UV Advantage)

Vitamin D supports the health in many ways. Many individuals who suffer from osteoporosis, depression, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and even effects diabetes and obesity are seeing great benefits from getting more Vitamin D. Many medical professionals are now prescribing it or advising their patients to get more of nature’s sunlight.

Vitamin D is perhaps the single most underrated nutrient in the world of nutrition. That’s probably because it’s free: your body makes it when sunlight touches your skin.

Truth is, most people don’t know the real story on vitamin D and health. So here’s an overview taken from an interview between Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and Dr. Michael Holick.

1. Vitamin D is produced by your skin in response to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from natural sunlight.

2. The healing rays of natural sunlight (that generate vitamin D in your skin) cannot penetrate glass. So you don’t generate vitamin D when sitting in your car or home.

3. It is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from your diet. Sunlight exposure is the only reliable way to generate vitamin D in your own body. or to supplement with D3.

4. A person would have to drink ten tall glasses of vitamin D fortified milk each day just to get minimum levels of vitamin D into their diet.

5. The further you live from the equator, the longer exposure you need to the sun in order to generate vitamin D. Canada, the UK and most U.S. states are far from the equator.

6. People with dark skin pigmentation may need 20 – 30 times as much exposure to sunlight as fair skinned people to generate the same amount of vitamin D. That’s why prostate cancer is epidemic among black men — it’s a simple, but widespread, sunlight deficiency.

7. Sufficient levels of vitamin D are crucial for calcium absorption in your intestines. Without sufficient vitamin D, your body cannot absorb calcium, rendering calcium supplements useless.

8. Chronic vitamin D deficiency cannot be reversed overnight: it takes months of vitamin D supplementation and sunlight exposure to rebuild the body’s bones and nervous system.

9. Even weak sunscreens (SPF=8) block your body’s ability to generate vitamin D by 95%. This is how sunscreen products actually cause disease — by creating a critical vitamin deficiency in the body.

10. It is impossible to generate too much vitamin D in your body from sunlight exposure: your body will self-regulate and only generate what it needs.

11. If it hurts to press firmly on your sternum, you may be suffering from chronic vitamin D deficiency right now.

12. Vitamin D is “activated” in your body by your kidneys and liver before it can be used.

13. Having kidney disease or liver damage can greatly impair your body’s ability to activate circulating vitamin D.

14. The sunscreen industry doesn’t want you to know that your body actually needs sunlight exposure because that realization would mean lower sales of sunscreen products.

15. Even though vitamin D is one of the most powerful healing chemicals in your body, your body makes it absolutely free. No prescription required.

Time for a Lift!

Lift  Lift-The Natural Energy Boost

Ever see those commercials on TV about quick fix energy drinks? How do you know if they are safe? They offer quick results that can last a while, but the fastest solution is not always the right one.

Sure energy drinks are packed full of caffeine, but ingesting high amounts at once is not good for the body. You may feel more aware and energetic, but this feeling won’t last. It’s like when kids eat a lot of candy and experience a sugar rush before they come crashing back down. When they lose the edge from the sugar, children become groggy and cranky. Coming down from a caffeine high can have similar effects. So what starts as beneficial, ends with the opposite of the desired outcome.

Energy drinks can also lead to other issues like shaking, dizziness, and headaches. All of these are counter-productive and can become more severe with continued use. This is due in large part to consuming highly concentrated amounts of caffeine that can total multiple cups of coffee. Maybe, these quick fixes aren’t so great after all.

With so many energy boosting products on the market today, it can be difficult to tell the good from the bad. The injection of high amounts of sugar and caffeine isn’t healthy, but that’s where Lift comes in. Lift is a natural energy booster that uses less that 80 mg of caffeine. Lift uses the body’s noradrenaline (brain’s version of adrenaline) to boost energy and brain activity. By using what’s naturally in the body, Lift isn’t flooding your system with vast levels of potentially harmful ingredients. Lift is the natural and safe way to get that extra push to finish the day or even the work week.  So ease up on those caffeine infused wonder drinks and choose a healthier product like Lift or Lift Caps and feed your brain the nutrients to stay healthy and eliminate mental fatigue!

A Lifeguard for Your Health!

The Cheapest Health Insurance a Person Will Ever Buy is a Lifeguard™-Multivitamin

 For years, the jury has been out on multivitamins. One study shows they are beneficial and help reduce certain health risks, while another says multivitamins act as a placebo. With the constant flip-flopping, it can be difficult to determine the truth, but finally a study has shown that multivitamins may in fact aid cancer reduction.

According to an article published in Jama 2002 “suboptimal intake of some vitamins, above levels causing classic vitamin deficiency, is a risk factor for chronic diseases and common in the general population, especially the elderly. Suboptimal folic acid levels, along with suboptimal levels of vitamins B6 and B12, are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, neural tube defects, and colon and breast cancer; low levels of vitamin D contribute to osteopenia and fractures; and low levels of the antioxidant vitamins (vitamins A, E, and C) may increase risk for several chronic diseases. Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone.”

JAMA has concluded another study that used data from a sample of almost 15,000 male physicians that were shadowed for more than 10 years. The study results showed a daily multivitamin could reduce the risk of cancer by 8%. It may seem like a small percentage but with so many new cases diagnosed each year, 8% comprises hundreds of thousands of people. Also, the 8% are not the only people affected positively. Think about the family members and friends who could also benefit from such a reduction.

Multivitamins help in filling in the gaps left when it comes to dieting and living a healthy lifestyle, you are your own worst enemy. With such a fast-paced world, knowing what’s healthy and what isn’t can be confusing. Of course, we all know fast-food restaurants and those deliciously fried food aren’t healthy for us, but they are quick and easy. The problem is that those foods and many others don’t always supply us the right amount of nutrients to stay healthy. In fact, one would have to eat an extensive amount of food, and thus negate those healthy benefits. So, multivitamins help balance everything out and One-Per-Meal Lifeguard™ is one such product.

One Per-Meal Lifeguard is packed with over two-dozen nutrients to help battle free radicals (naturally produced toxic waste within the body) which damage the immune system, and thus can lead to more health risks.  Antioxidants target the free radicals and help reduce them to provide a stronger immune system and a healthier you. After all, it’s much cheaper to purchase a bottle of a high quality multivitamin for a month’s supply rather than accumulating expensive medical bills. Make a proactive choice today to create a healthier you by adding a multivitamin to your diet and save time and money at the same time. I guarantee that buying a high quality Lifeguard will be the cheapest insurance policy for your health and well-being.

I have used a Lifeguarding multivitamin, scientifically formulated for the past 20 years and I firmly believe it’s the best investment for your money and your health.

To your health!-Michelle Pryor, Life Priority

 

June and Men’s Health!

This month we are all taking time out to honor the important men in our lives by 67602-father-day-tip-advice-good-perfect-dad-treat-attention-family-health-spry__crop-landscape-534x0celebrating Father’s Day. At Life Priority we encourage you to recognize the DAD’S and  male role models who have coached us, encouraged us, loved us, and provided for us.taught us and protected us.  At Life Priority want to express our sincere gratitude  and take June as special month to focus on Men’s health. We all need support and encouragement so help are our top tips to support those special DAD”S and role models.

At Life Priority, our mission is health, and we can’t think of any better gift to give our dads than that of increased wellness and energy. That’s why this month we are offering a few men’s health tips that can help fathers enjoy their families for years to come!

1. Don’t smoke. By now this should go without saying, but many men still cling to the cigarette habit. Unfortunately, smoking dramatically increases your risk for heart disease, cancer and a number of other diseases and is responsible for one in five deaths in the United States every year. Dads, if you want to be around to enjoy your family, give yourself the gift of kicking the smoking habit!

2. Watch your weight. This so much more than just about looking good. Maintaining a healthy weight increases your quality of life by giving you energy, decreasing your risk of death and disease and by helping ward off depression. Find ways to incorporate more healthy foods into your diet in place of junk foods and make time for regular exercise.

3. Drink wisely. There are so many benefits to limiting alcohol intake to a moderate level that we could write another blog entirely on this subject. Excessive alcohol increases your risk for disease, depression, accidents and social irresponsibility. And, of course, by not limiting your alcohol, you also run the risk of addiction. Don’t put yourself or your family in that situation. Limit yourself to, at most, one or two standard-sized drinks per day.

4. Get checked out. While it’s not fun, it’s still necessary to see your doctor regularly and be screened for high cholesterol, high blood pressure and common cancers. Early detection is particularly key when it comes to colon and prostate cancer, so don’t put this on the backburner. Bite the bullet and get on your doctor’s calendar!

5. Take your vitamins! While they’re not an excuse to avoid healthy foods, common multivitamins and supplements can go a long way in preventing health problems. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about your specific needs and what vitamins and supplements would be right for you based on lifestyle and family history.

They say that the best gifts in life are free, and we believe that’s true—especially when it comes to health. If you are a dad or just hope to become one someday, give yourself a great Father’s Day gift by choosing to take care of your health. Wellness is the kind of present that will keep on giving long after the golf clubs or neckties have lost their appeal. So take our advice and choose to live a full, fit life. And, if there’s any way we at Life Priority can help you get started and stay on track, call us today!

Go Red For Women - Live Priority

A Woman’s Heart

Startling fact: Nearly once a minute, a woman in the United States dies of heart disease. It is the leading cause of death among women in the U.S., causing more fatalities than all cancers combined. And while it is typically associated with men, since 1984, heart disease has actually killed more women than men, bringing with it a 28% mortality rate for victims within the first year of a heart attack.

Go Red For Women - Live Priority

Through recent movements such as Go Red for Women, heart disease has increased in awareness. No longer is it being overshadowed but is being brought to the forefront through rallies, walks and emotional survival stories, all of which are letting women know that they need to be proactive in protecting their hearts.

According to the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, one of the most important steps in preventing heart trouble is knowing your risk factors. While some may be beyond your ability to control (e.g., age, ethnicity and family history), there are several factors that are completely within a woman’s power to change. These include blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking, weight and physical activity.

This month, we at Life Priority want to encourage our female readers to seriously examine the condition of their hearts. The statistics don’t lie, and if you’re not careful, you could be one of them. Start by increasing your physical activity level and eating more whole grains and produce. Visit your doctor to have your blood pressure and cholesterol checked, and prioritize stress management and proper sleep. Investigate vitamins and supplements that aid in a healthy heart.

Inflammation in the body can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease and strokes. Omega-3 fatty acids may decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure slightly, reduce blood clotting, decrease stroke and heart failure risk and reduce irregular heartbeats. Mayo Clinic has a great indepth article to help educate you on the added value of Omega-3 in fish: How eating fish helps your heart – Mayo linic
www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/heart-disease/in-depth/omega…/art-20045614

 

More than anything, keep in mind the loved ones who are counting on you to be around in the future. Just picturing their faces could be all the motivation you need in order to put down the fork and pick up your walking shoes.

When it comes down to it, heart health is more than just about your physical well-being. It’s about being able to live the full, active, joyful life you desire. Don’t let heart disease hold you back from experiencing all that life has to offer. Get your ticker pumping and embrace the future with excitement!
