4 Essential Supplements for Men’s Health-Greg Pryor

Greg Pryor-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.

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.

Baseball is the Lord’s Game!

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

THE LORD’S BASEBALL GAME

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Satan’s whole team relaxed when they saw Grace.

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

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

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

The Lord’s team won!

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

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

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

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

base but only My Grace can get you Home.

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

boast.’ Ephesians 2:8-9

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

Greg Pryor: Fighting the Stress of Post Season Baseball

Greg Pryor- Life Priority offers the following products that allow you to touch all of your nutritional bases so put them into your daily nutritional “lineup”

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!

Get “Physically Prepared” For Another MLB Baseball Season!

Get “Physically Prepared” For Another MLB Baseball Season!- Greg Pryor

I played pro baseball for 16 yrs, and over 9 seasons in MLB.  At the end of each one of my minor league and major league seasons, I would immediately begin a physical fitness program to get ready for spring training and the next season.  An exception to that schedule took place after my first MLB season withGreg Royals 1985 the Chicago White Sox in 1979.

I married my wife, Michelle, on January 31, 1979 which was right before spring training.  Since we didn’t take a honeymoon after our wedding, right after the ’79 season, Michelle suggested that we take a 3 week trip to Europe for our honeymoon!  I was shocked that she would even consider taking me out of my postseason “routine” to travel to Ireland, England, Germany, Holland and France.  We did take our honeymoon to Europe but I went on to have my best season in MLB in ’79, so go figure.

The only player that I ever played with that did not need an off-season workout program was Bo Jackson.  In my opinion, he was the best athlete in history.  He was blessed with every physical tool that you would ever want.  Athletes in other sports were on a lower plane compared to Bo.  I was on deck when he hit the longest HR in Royals history in ’86.  His swing sucked the air out of my lungs and I about fainted! Just kidding, but Bo could simply do it all better than anyone else.

The current Royals players have their own conditioning program they follow during the off season.  They had a shorter off season than any of the other MLB players because of  their World Series victory!  I have been told that Royal left fielder, Alex Gordon, is very diligent regarding his workout regimen which, I hear, is done 12 months a year.  If that is true, that is the extreme and I commend Alex for his dedication and preparation.  Normally, after the season is over, MLB players take a few weeks off and begin a fitness program to follow by the trainer and/or strength coach, and most players do their conditioning without someone cracking a whip over their heads during workouts. When I played, I had my best workouts when I had someone with me urging me (screaming at me) to put in more effort in my exercises.

We all have a free choice as to what personal exercise program to follow whether our goal is to simply feel better, lose fat, or to compete in a sport.  Whatever exercise program we choose can increase the level of free radicals that form in our blood during the activity.  Excess free radical production can overwhelm your cells and oxidative stress rises far beyond healthy levels. Over time, this damage increases your risk of heart disease, cancer, and exercise associated muscle damage.

Our bodies naturally protect themselves against free radicals with a class of substances LifeGuard Daily Antioxidant Supplementcalled antioxidants.  Wiser people than me suggest that in order to maximize exercise, to minimize oxidant damage, and to get more blood in the muscles during exercise, a person
should use certain nutrients in adequate amounts, via supplements, PRIOR to a workouts.

Since 1994, Life Priority has been advising athletes on the importance of and proper use of certain antioxidants and other nutrients prior to workouts.  Prior to workouts, there are certain antioxidants and other nutrients to ingest that will lower potential free radical damage and will also help create better blood flow inside of the muscle.  Exercise can help you live a healthier life but using the right nutrients prior to exercise can maximize the benefit of the time that you spend doing those exercises.  Contact Life Priority at customerservice@ lifepriority.com for more information on how to maximize your workout potential!  Hey, the harder you work, the luckier you can get!

Are There Any Valid Reasons for Not Using Dietary Supplements?

There are a few givens in this life. We are all aging. Getting the right nutrients in our diet can slow up the aging process. Most of us do not get enough of the essential nutrients in our daily diet. If we become sick, mentally or physically, we do not enjoy life as much and can be a burden on our family.

Are There Any Valid Reasons for Not Using Dietary Supplements?  Greg Pryor

I apologize for the leading headline but I was trying to get you to read at least the first paragraph of my short article.  My short answer to the question is that, in my opinion, there is NO reason for anyone to not use at least one dietary supplement.  I began using a supplement in the late ’60’s when I was in high school.  My mom put a little red “One A Day” multiple vitamin pill next to my dinner plate and told me to take it after I ate. I have been taking some supplements all my career, but I didn’t understand why I should be using dietary supplements until 1991—-24 years later!

In ’91, I was introduced to the great value of using dietary supplements by a friend.  After I analyzed the product line offered by Company A, I became a distributor.  However, after 3 years of successful marketing of Company A products, my wife, Michelle, and I decided to form our own company, www.lifepriority.com.  We began offering the same products (but with the Life Priority label) offered by Company A.

Initially, I had joined Company A because I began using nutritional formulas called Designer Foods®.  The Designer Foods® were formulated by 2 famous nutritional research scientists, Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw®.  Michelle and I KNEW that the Designer Food®LifeGuard Daily Antioxidant Supplement formulas worked since we felt better soon after we began using them!

Now, after talking to users and non-users of supplements for the last 25 years, I have come to the following conclusions.   Many users do not know what supplements to take, how much to take and when to use them.   Many non-users reason that “supplements don’t work”, “they cost too much”, “they go right through you”, “I get what I need from my diet”, “I am allergic to them”.

There are a few givens in this life.  We are all aging.  Getting the right nutrients in our diet can slow up the aging process.  Most of us do not get enough of the essential nutrients in our daily diet. If we become sick, mentally or physically, we do not enjoy life as much and can be a burden on our family.

Please visit our company, Life Priority, at www.lifepriority.com.  If you want to discuss anything about your use (or non-use) of dietary supplements, email us at customerservice@lifepriority.com.  We will give you a free consultation regarding your current use of supplements and offer suggestions on what you might add to your diet to help you live a healthier life with more mental and physical energy.

I played in the majors for the Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals. I experienced the depths of stressful feelings that baseball can create, on and off the field.

Coaching/Managing a Team…Is It For Everyone? by Greg Pryor

Coaching/Managing a Team…Is It For Everyone?Greg Royals 1985

From age 7 to 37, I played baseball under the guidance of dozens of coaches and managers.  From age 7 to 22, I played as an amateur, and then, after I signed my first pro contract with the Washington Senators in 1971, I played 16 years as a professional.  I would like to offer some personal views on the subject of coaching and/or managing.

Prior to playing in high school and college, my teams were coached by volunteers.  My most vivid memories of “volunteer” coaches was how loudly they screamed at me and my teammates.  My college coach at Florida Southern College, Hal Smeltzly, had the most pleasant personality of all of my baseball coaches. He was a great motivator and I never remember him screaming.  As I look back though, the bad coaches simply help me appreciate the good ones.

As an example, when I became a professional, my first manager got frustrated with my poor performance during first game of a double-header.  As he was reading out the lineup for the second game to the team, he looked at me and said, “Pryor, you can take your uniform off and I don’t care what you do.”  I was crushed.  If I did not have the desire to improve and have that “no matter what” attitude, I would not have an ’85 KC Royals World Series ring!

Advice for Volunteer Coaches

In my opinion, baseball is the best team sport in the world.  Thanks to all volunteers and parents for helping young people learn how to play baseball.  Mostly, the game is learned between the lines during the games by players who desire to improve.  Players will get tested by the competition and then find areas that need improvement.  Players will remember your “nice” personality more than your “expertise”.  When I coached my girls in softball for 5 summers, my practices were organized so that most of my players were moving—doing something to improve.  During your practices, create drills that help all players stay as active as possible.  Ask parents not to yell at the umpires or coach from the stands.  Check out my tips on how to be a better ballplayer below.

Advice for Paid Coaches/Managers

The odds say that 99.9% of your players will not become a pro ballplayer.  You do have a 100% opportunity to help a young player improve as a high school or college player.  Being paid to coach does not equate to being a good coach.  Each player thinks differently. You need to know how they think and adjust accordingly. If you are worthy, you will know how to explain the better way to run, catch, hit and throw.  You will recognize which players want to get better and who are more teachable. Your coaching ability will be reflected by the improvement of your players.  Be cheery and positive. Please do not try to force improvement through constant guilt and negativity.

Whether age 7, 37, or 97, being healthy is one of the most valuable areas of your life.  Since 1994, my company, Life Priority, has offer potent, high-quality, time-tested, health and nutrition products.  One of our 19 products, One Per Meal Lifeguard, is a multi-vitamin, multi-mineral that was created by highly intelligent nutritional research scientists. It could be the MVP that can help keep your immune system in the “WIN” column.

 Here are some of my favorite tips on how to play and enjoy the best game ever invented “BASEBALL”

  1. Baseball is a tough sport to master. Have fun learning how to do it.
  2. Strive to be teachable. Every MLB player was taught by other people.
  3. Ask for help. If you are struggling with catching, hitting or throwing, ask for help!  
  1. You can always get better. Your competition is practicing somewhere.   
  2. Don’t make a habit of making excuses because of umpires and coaches.  
  3. If you have good practice habits, you will improve your chances to succeed.
  4. Treat your glove like it is your friend. Take care of it!  
  5. The baseball “knows” if you are scared. Be ready!
  6. Do drills to improve your feet quickness to help make plays easier.
  7. Commend the performance of your teammate(s).
  8. Expect that every pitch will be hit to you! Want it to be hit to you!
  9. The ball will always find the guy who isn’t concentrating.
  10. Learn how to “get the seams” ASAP on ground balls before throwing.
  11. Throw “over the top” with your fingertips right over top of the long seams.
  12. Be aggressive when fielding ground balls. You will make more plays!
  13. If you bobble a ball, use your bare hand to pick it up–not your glove.
  14. Find ways to make your grip and wrists stronger.
  15. To get a better jump on ground balls, anticipate where the ball will be hit.
  16. Develop your own style of getting ready for pitches.
  17. Know where you are going to throw the ball before it is hit to you.
  18. Run everything out! Run everything out! Expect the unexpected!
  19. Look forward to hitting with runners on base.
  20. Don’t worry; you are going to get another hit no matter how bad you are going.
  21. Respect your teammates, coaches, and your parents.  
  22. Be the “cheerleader” in the dugout. Nobody wants to play around a bad attitude.
  23. Hall of Famers, Ted Williams and Wade Boggs, almost always took one strike before hitting. It might help you.
  24. Change your hitting approach when you get 2 strikes. Be a great 2 strike hitter.
  25. The best pitch that you will see all day might be the next one.
  26. Don’t assume anything in baseball. Expect the unexpected!
  27. Don’t be a timid hitter. Swing hard!!

Former ’85 Royals Partied Like it was 1985 in Arizona!

Every January for the last 10 years, I have attended the Kansas City Royals Fantasy Camp in Surprise, Arizona. This year’s camp was memorable because it was kind of like a reunion for the members of the 1985 World Championship team–I was an infielder.  The other players in camp included Steve Balboni, Buddy Biancalana, Bud Black, George Brett, Mark Gubicza, Mark Huismann, Charlie Leibrandt, Dennis Leonard, Hal McCrae, Darryl Motley, Greg Pryor, Jamie Quirk, Bret Saberhagen, Pat Sheridan, Jim Sundberg, John Wathan and Willie Wilson. Royals Hall of Famers, John Mayberry and Jeff Montgomery also attended.

greg-pryor-stretching-royals-fantasy-camp-2012

Fans attended the camp and were placed on one of six different teams and managed by three different Royals alumni. Campers played games against other teams and learned the fine points of baseball. The best part of the camp is after the games when alumni mingle with the campers in the clubhouse and share stories about our careers it was like to play in The Show.

At camp’s end, campers thanked the members us for helping to make the camp special. Many campers expressed how much the Royals and baseball have been such a great part of their lives.

Many campers have attended multiple Fantasy Camps. One of my favorite campers is Byron “The Professor” Strom. Byron is a former college chemistry professor from Iowa. He has attended the last 10 Fantasy Camps in Arizona. The Royals also appreciate The Professor. We showed him by giving him a signed jersey with number 85.

1985-royals-world-series-win

It was wonderful to see many of my old teammates. Our team had a special bond and we overcame great obstacles to win the World Series championship. In 1984, we had lost the AL playoffs to the Tigers who went on to win the World Series. Most of us came back to spring training in 1985 very eager to get back to the post-season. That year, we accomplished the ultimate goal of every player in MLB–to win a World Series ring. Even though the spirit of all of the alumni at the camp remains youthful, it was evident that all of us are affected by age.

Last season’s American League Champion Royals rejuvenated the fans and created new Royals fans all over the country. We are eagerly waiting for our team to return in April to begin another quest for a World Series trophy. Our core players, Alex Gordon, Lorenzo Cain, Escobar, Salvador Perez, Eric Hosmer, Jeremy Guthrie, Jason Vargas, Yordano Ventura, Danny Duffy, Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis, and Greg Holland are still on the roster. I hope that all of these players and our newest Royals are ready for the grind and to make it back to the post-season.

No matter what your personal grind in life, being healthy physically and mentally will be your MVPs and help you win! My company, Life Priority, Inc., was formed in 1994 to offer high-quality, research-based and time-tested dietary supplements. I invite you to contact me personally to discuss ways that may help you have a healthy winning season!

To Your Health!
