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

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

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

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

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

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

In “94, my wife, Michelle, and I formed our health and nutritional company, Life Priority. We learned the importance of using high quality nutrients to help support and insure your mental and physical health. Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw are famous research scientists, authors  and the formulators of the Life Priority Designer Foods line.  MIND Brain Health Supplement

Durk & Sandy are famous research scientists who have spent their lives helping millions better understand the aging process and how it might be slowed as we age.  One of the Life Priority Designer Food formulas that Durk & Sandy created is MIND.  MIND is a great tasting lemon-flavored drink mix that contains 1 gram of choline per serving.  Drink MIND when you want to focus and concentrate!

The Speed of an MLB Fastball vs Father Time, Mother Nature!

The Speed of an MLB Fastball vs Father Time, Mother Nature!                                                       By: Greg Pryor

For 16 seasons as a pro baseball player, I had to deal with Mother Nature, Father Time, and Greg Royals 1985hitting MLB fastballs in order to keep a job.  At age 66 now and looking back, I think that it was easier to hit a MLB fastball than it is to deal with Mother Nature and Father Time (Ma and Pa). The aging process is certainly not for the weak.

Recently, I saw two people who I had not seen for many years.  It was very evident from their appearance that they were much older from living with Ma and Pa.  The aging process never sleeps.  We all live closely with both Ma and Pa every day.  How does facing an MLB fastball fit into this equation though?

Recently, I watched a Netflix documentary called “Fastball”.  Many of the most notable fastball pitchers in MLB baseball history, the Fellers, Ryans, and Gibsons were interviewed with many of the best fastball hitters in history, the Brett’s, Bench’s, and Schmidt’s.   The MLB pitchers who were interviewed could throw a baseball from 95 MPH to 105 MPH.  The hitters interviewed explained how quickly they had to recognize the pitch and then swing their bats.  To find out how quickly that the brain/body needs react to hit a MLB fastball, go to this site. http://www.ballplayerplus.com/science-hitting-major-league-fastball/

Because I managed to work well enough with Ma and Pa in my career, I was able to keep a job hitting fastballs for 16 pro seasons.  Towards the end of my career, Ma and Pa “informed me” that I was unable to catch up to the fastball like I could when I was younger.  I knew that the best days of my career were almost over.

Keeping up with the fast pace in life is much like hitting a MLB fastball.  To succeed in life and in business, one needs to learn how to play the “game” and to avoid making the same mistakes over and over again.  If we don’t do it well enough, we miss out on opportunities to advance in our jobs or even lose our jobs.  We need to know when to make our decisions to swing early enough to get the hits that we want in every day life.

I am more aware of the aging process now more than when I was in my 20’s and 30’s. Now, I am more concerned about the aging of my brain than anything else.  I am fortunate that, when I was 42, I was introduced to ways to slow up the aging process.

I knew that I was aging, but I was shocked at how quickly it seemed to be happening.  That is the biggest reason why I entered the health and nutrition industry.  I began learning how to slow up the aging process through the consumption of certain essential nutrients in adequate amounts.  I began encouraging the repair process each day. I use at least 6 different Life Priority nutrients via dietary supplements that may help “feed” my brain.  I do this because I do not want to be a burden on others because of my inability to think and reason properly.

Don’t wait until “the fastballs” in your life are being thrown by you!  Your body and brain is aging with each passing day.  The rally cry of the ’15 World Champion KC Royals was, “Keep The Line Moving!”  My rally cry to you is “Keep Your Brain Working!”.

For information on what dietary nutrients that I use to keep my brain nourished each day, send me an email at customerservice@lifepriority.com.  I will be glad to help you keep hitting the mental “fastballs” in your life.

Food for Thought-Nutrition for Your Brain

August signals the beginning of fall and another school year.  As kids, we were excited to see friends after our summer vacations but, most importantly, we knew it was a fresh start to learn new information, and we had to make our “grades”.

We can all improve our ability to remember things more easily and improve our cognitive functions through simple lifestyle changes such as incorporating memory exercises, healthy eating, physical fitness and stress reduction in our lives.

In your brain are ten billion neurons (brain cells). Between each and every neuron are neurotransmitters. Everything that happens in the brain…every memory, thought, emotion, innovation, every “wow, that’s great!”…is a result of the release of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are natural substances made by nerve cells in your brain that transmit messages from one nerve cell to another.

Our bodies make them from our food or we can get them from dietary supplements. It is estimated that a high percentage of Americans have less than optimal levels of neurotransmitters. That’s why many have “brain fade” because our brains are not making enough neurotransmitters.

Life Priority is proud to offer 3 specific nutritional formulas, LIFT, LIFT CAPS, and MIND that provide the right nutrients (in the right amounts) that allow the brain to make and release more neurotransmitters.

The three most important neurotransmitters that support brain function and help students and athletes are:

  • Noradrenaline is an excitatory neurotransmitter and is nature’s “natural speed”.  It is your “get up and go” juice.  This is what you want working for you in the classroom, on the sports field, or when you head off to work in the morning.
  • Dopamine can help with focus issues such as not remembering where we put our keys, forgetting what a paragraph said when we just read it or simply daydreaming and not being able to stay on task.  Dopamine is responsible for our drive or desire to get things done–our motivation. Dopamine is made from phenylalanine, so when you take phenylalanine, plus other nutrient cofactors, you able to make more dopamine.
  • Acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter that helps you with memory and organization–the way you order things in your mind. It’s also involved in focus and concentration. Your body manufacturers acetylcholine from the essential nutrients choline and vitamin B5.

The ability to think more clearly and effectively and the drive to succeed are all tied directly to your brain’s ability to create adequate neurotransmitters.  If you provide your body (and brain) with the proper nutrients to make neurotransmitters, it could be the determining factor in your level of persistence and even your success or failure.
