Testimonial: Taking Life Priority products have changed my Life! Harry H.

Testimonial from Harry H. Life Priority customer since 1998!

I’ve been a truck driver for almost 30 years and a Life Priority customer for over 15 years.

I use to spend the first part of my mornings feeling like I was running behind the curve, like I was trying to catch up with my day. Then I discovered Life Priority. Now, I start each morning with a combination drink that includes Lift, Mind and Muscle Memory.

Quite honestly, it has changed my life. I find that my mornings are now more focused and I am ready to take on the day. It’s amazing how greatLife Priority Lift Powder it feels to start the day feeling good, feeling focused, and feeling in charge. I make another drink in the afternoon to keep me feeling that way the rest of the day.

I also take several other Life Priority supplements. I take them with confidence knowing that Greg and Michelle have
researched them and will only offer them if they are quality products.

When it comes to Life Priority supplements…I’m a BELIEVER!!!!

Mental Fitness is a Life Priority!

Mental Fitness is a Life Priority!

As we age and encounter multiple stressors and responsibilities, our minds become pulled countless directions and we can see the negative effects. Sometimes we forget things, can’t focus or be as sharp as we once were and this can hurt our daily lives. To overcome these deficiencies, we reach for caffeine or other artificial sources in an attempt to regain our former mental capacities, but things like caffeine don’t solve the problem. Artificial boosters can only keep you “up” for so long before you come crashing back down, and they have other harmful side effects. So instead of providing your mind and body with a temporary solution, chooses to help correct the whole problem and create a healthier you.

Life Priority has paired with scientists Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw® and their expertise since 1994 to establish a line of supplements specifically designed to help improve and develop your brain and all of its cognitive faculties. These products were created after countless hours of research and testing. We only use the safest and highest quality ingredients based on Durk and Sandy’s recommendations. With so much care directed toward providing a quality product, our supplements are designed to deliver real results.

Lift and Lift Caps were created to help provide you with some energy when you’re feeling like you’re on empty. Lift™ is great because it’s the natural way to help increase energy. It helps stimulate your mind and your body using your own faculties so you don’t experience a caffeine crash later. In addition to helping with your energy and focus, Lift™ can also help curb your appetite and thus help you lose weight. Two other great products are Mind™ and Muscle Memory™.  They can help improve your memory, concentration and physical ability to function. All of these supplements can help you create a healthier mind and body for the future, instead of just for a few hours or a day.

 

Too often in today’s world, people look for the quick fix. Our lives are filled with so many responsibilities and obstacles that finding solutions to problems instead of masking them is challenging. Caffeine and energy drinks can only do so much or so long, and they can lead to negative side effects in some cases like weight gain. Instead of reaching for these quick fixes, make the decision to create a healthier you with a healthier lifestyle using natural supplements. With Life Priority, your health is our only concern and our line of carefully tested products is designed to help suit your needs and help you become healthier.

Short-term memory, and critical thinking problems?

Today’s fast-paced world demands people be mentally capable of multitasking and their woman-multitaskingbrains functioning at a high level, but this isn’t always the case. Exhaustion, fatigue, stress, and forgetting everyday chores are common, and there may be a good explanation for all this. Some doctors have noted for cases of vitamin B12 deficiencies in people which can cause the symptoms above.

Vitamin B12 is responsible for energy production because it turns carbohydrates and other fats into energy your body can use throughout the day. In addition, vitamin B12 helps with the repair of cells and their growth. Therefore, B12 can help your immune system function properly, while also helping regulate mood and sleep patterns. Even though all these are important for our bodies to function properly, some recent research suggests B12’s major contribution is protecting our brain from wearing down at faster rates.

As we get older, it is natural for our cognitive abilities to decline and challenge our routines. Studies have shown elderly people with low levels of B12 are more susceptible to concentration, short-term memory, and critical thinking problems. This may scare some of you, but we can do something to help combat the natural aging process. We can start taking control of our health and begin by eating healthier foods and beverages. Food and drink alone cannot provide the correct amount of nutrients and vitamins we need to stay healthy and function at maximum capacity, so it becomes necessary to invest in supplements to fill in the missing gaps in our diets.

Our brains drive the car that is our body, so we must take care of it and provide as much support as possible for the brain to work properly. If you can increase the amount of B12 in your system, you can start seeing noticeable, positive changes in your mental faculties. Your memory, thinking, and energy can all improve. Also, your sleep patterns can improve (resulting in a more restful night’s sleep), you can have fewer mood swings, and your immune system can be stronger than ever. Who would have thought ingesting more B12 MIND Brain Health Supplementcould potentially help with so many important aspects of our lives.

To see if our high quality supplements with vitamin B12 product is right for you, check out Mind, Lift, and Lift Caps on our website, lifepriority.com, and start making your health a bigger life priority today.

New Year, New Attitude

A very important part of being happy — and healthy — is to maintain a positive attitude, no matter what your circumstances are. Remember Charles Swindoll, and his perception that attitude is a matter of choice.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.

If you could use a little help along the way, a Phenylalanine formulation might be just the thing to lift your spirits and support your positive attitude. Phenyalalanine may just be the Lift you need to cheer you up and support better mental health. It seems to improve mood in depressed patients. The brain is the most important master organ in your body, so exquisitely fine-tuned to perform innumerable tasks —among which is to make us feel happy.

Enter Phenylalanine. A natural approach is to use nutritional supplements, which many people prefer because they’re largely free of adverse side effects, and they’re less expensive, too. The amino acid phenylalanine has long been of interest because of its role in the production of dopamine and noradrenaline, two neurotransmitters that play key roles in the regulation of mood, especially with regard to our sense of well-being, i.e. our happiness. Significantly, deficiencies of these neurotransmitters in the brain are associated with depression. Many people feel it acts to help suppress stress eating and help to increase motivation and drive.

Lift  might help supply you with a boost of energy. Lift Caps are another convenient way to take your nutritional supplement that may support a positive mental attitude and a productive day.

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid — it must be obtained from outside sources because our bodies cannot synthesize it in appreciable amounts. It’s one of the 20 common amino acids found in dietary proteins that we obtain from plants and animals. (Babies, take note: breast milk is particularly rich in phenylalanine.) I personally use the Lift formulation to start each and every day.

As a small business owner, I get asked all the time what my secret weapon is to get it all done. Psst… It’s Lift.

4 Good Reasons to Say No to Soda Pop, and Yes to Real Lift

The holidays are fast approaching and that means bake days and cooking days. Cookies, pies, potatoes, ham and turkey are big hits during the holiday season, but another item often fills our stomachs. Soda pop is an easy buy at the store and everyone loves it, but pop is not healthy for us and can hurt us more than we realize. Herein lies the case against soda…

soda-caffeine-crash-sxc-292253_7874Weight Gain & Diabeties

Pop may taste great, but it’s full of sugar and calories. With all the sugar infused into each can, consuming pop on a regular basis may lead to weight gain and increased difficulty in losing weight. In severe cases, pop can also lead to the development of diabetes due to all the sugar intake which is harmful to your body.

Weaker Teeth

In addition to potential problems with weight, pop can all lead to weaker and less healthy teeth. Pop can help develop an acid coating on your teeth when the sugar it contains is combined with the bacteria in your mouth. This can cause staining, weakening of the enamel, tooth decay and cavities. If you’ve ever seen someone who drinks pop more frequently than the norm, some of them will have build up on their teeth from the sugar.

Caffeine Crashes

Of course pop also contains caffeine and sometimes people need the extra pick-me-up, but infusing your body with a rush of caffeine isn’t healthy. You can experience a caffeine crash later and feel more tired than before you consumed the pop. Also, caffeine can make people jittery, and putting the body through the highs and lows of caffeine spikes of crashes isn’t beneficial.

The Alternative to Soda

Lift, on the other hand, is an all natural drink that might help boost energy, but it does more than that. Lift could help curb your appetite and help you lose weight. L-phenylalanine can help you not eat as much, and at the same time help you feel more upbeat and happy.

Yes, as mentioned before, Lift could naturally boost your energy, but it’s also a great alternative to pop. So this holiday season reach for a glass of Lift instead of a can of pop. At the same time, try to make more health conscious decisions during Thanksgiving and Christmas by watching what you eat and drink; your health with thank you.

Caffeine Getting You Down?

People always say adversity tells a lot about an individual. They can push through and keep going, stay satisfied with the current situation or concede. Overcoming obstacles is almost a daily activity, so people need to be mentally strong. Let’s explore how you can help yourself by helping your brain overcome obstacles!

iStock_000021022342_FullFor some, caffeine is a simple way to provide energy to power through the day and whatever life throws at you. Coffee, energy drinks and sodas loaded with caffeine all seem to provide a boost, but after a while that wears off. The effect of large amounts of caffeine consumed in a relatively short amount of time can best be described by a race analogy. The day is quite long, so why sprint as hard as you can? This will cause you to become fatigued quickly and you won’t have enough steam to finish the race. The slow and steady approach will ensure a more balanced and productive day. Of course, people can continue to consume coffee and other similar products, but each drink does less than the previous. So, what is a person to do?

Life Priority Lift PowderLift, developed by two of the most respected research scientist Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, is a natural way that may boost energy and thus productivity.  It can provide your brain with a system of nutrients used to manufacture noradrenaline, your “get up and go juice” and L-Phenylalanine which helps to regulate your appetite and your mood. By using an all-natural approach, Lift ensures there won’t be a crash from your boost of energy. Without the infusion of vast amounts of caffeine, your body can use what’s within to promote energy and better moods to navigate the life’s daily challenges.

mindAnother potential valuable supplement for the brain is called Mind. It was also developed by Pearson and Shaw, and Mind targets the processing your brain does. It can help with increasing focus and concentration. We all have so many responsibilities and obligations but so little time. Mind can help you stay on track by calming your state of mind and helping you focus your efforts and brain function. We all wish for more productive days at some point.

Don’t let life’s trials and tribulations slow you down. Give your brain an extra boost with Lift and Mind! These two supplements can help you become more productive every day and help you overcome whatever obstacles try to throw you off course. Make the decision to fight through the tough times and come out on top.

Do You Want a Real Lift for Mental Fatigue?

(Life Priority was formed in 1994 by owners, Greg and Michelle Pryor, to provide truthful, up-to-date information about dietary supplements and the supplement industry.  They also wanted to supply high-quality, research-based, health products to customers.  Greg and Michelle were retail customers of many of the products that are offered at Life Priority.)

Since 1991, Life Priority has been offering consumers high-quality, research-driven products. Many products are called Designer Food formulas and were created by Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw for their own personal use.  Durk & Sandy co-authored the NY Times best-seller, Life Extension, A Practical Scientific Approach, written specifically for doctors.  In the past, most medical schools did not give doctors much information about how vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc. used in adequate amounts, could slow up the aging process, help improve memory, and speed up recovery after exercise or injury.

Durk & Sandy wanted to provide doctors with the research available at the time on how  certain nutrients could help people live a healthier lives, both mentally and physically.

At the time that Life Extension was published, the information was not available to doctors.  The information in the book has stood the test of time.

Several of the Life Priority Pearson & Shaw Designer Food formulas contain nutrients that the body use to make neurotransmitters.  Every thought and emotion in the brain is caused by the release of neurotransmitters.  In many cases, the modern-day diet does not provide enough of the nutrients necessary to make adequate amounts of neurotransmitters.  The Life Priority products, Lift and Lift Caps, contain specific nutrients found in food along with a small amount of caffeine, 80 mg per serving.  These specific nutrients may help the brain make and release noradrenaline, a neurotransmitter.

Those with low levels of noradrenaline generally have difficulty staying awake, concentrating, and paying attention to tasks.  When I used Lift for the first time in 1991, I knew that it worked because I felt bright-eyed and bushy-tailed within 30 minutes and it lasted for 4-6 hours!  It is, possibly, the healthiest and least expensive way to get “5 hour energy!”

It is important to realize that Lift does not need caffeine make it work.  The caffeine is added to simply help the brain release a little quicker.  The other nutrients in Lift and Lift Caps are what the body (brain) uses to make noradrenaline, not the caffeine.

The reason why I wrote the above information is to make you aware of what brain “energy” really is.  It is not simply caffeine!  Many caffeinated beverage do not contain enough nutrients to help your brain make more noradrenaline.  An over consumption of caffeine during the day, without replenishing the body with nutrients to make more noradrenaline, might cause a “crash” caused from excessive caffeine consumption.

The FDA suggests that a person does not consume more than 400mg of caffeine per day.

Energy Boost

With the temperatures reaching record numbers lately, it can be a challenge to get out and do much of anything. Most of us would rather curl up in a dark, air-conditioned room than spend time under the blazing sun outside.

But what if it’s not just the heat that’s making you tired? What if a lack of energy has been a struggle for you for more than the last few months? If so, know that you’re not alone. Millions of Americans feel the same way. That’s why we at Life Priority want to offer a few tips on how to increase your get-up-and-go even when the heat is on!

First, it’s a good idea to examine what may be zapping your energy. Common culprits include lack of sleep, an unbalanced diet, lack of exercise, not enough sunlight, dehydration and, of course, outside forces like cell phones and technology. On top of that, you may be experiencing high stress levels from work or family or have undiagnosed health issues such as anemia, hyperthyroid or low blood sugar. To be completely sure, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with your doctor to get a thorough exam.

While your doctor may discover an internal cause for your lethargy (which is why it’s important to get checked out), there’s a good chance that your energy level could be enhanced simply by incorporating a few changes into your lifestyle.

To start, take a look at your diet. Are you consuming a lot of processed, sugary snacks and beverages? Sugar can cause your blood sugar to spike and then crash, leaving you tired and foggy. Instead of cookies, candy or potato chips, try snacking on fruits or nuts. The protein in nuts sustains you longer than refined sugar, and fruits such as bananas have helpful nutrients like potassium, which converts blood sugar into energy.

Next, get moving! Exercise stimulates blood flow and prevents all kinds of diseases and health problems. It also helps your mentality by releasing feel-good hormones into your body and helps you sleep better at night, which gives you more energy during the day. It doesn’t take much—just 30 minutes a day 3-5 times a week–to feel the effects. Plus, getting out and moving also allows you to unplug from the world and just enjoy nature. (Though, with these temperatures, it might be good to enjoy that nature early in the morning while it’s still tolerable.)

Beyond diet and exercise, it is also important to get enough sleep. Most Americans are underslept, falling far short of the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep per night. This not only decreases energy, but also facilitates diseases and other health issues. Set an alarm in your home to help you remember to head to bed at a time that allows you to get the recommended total of shut-eye. Yes, it will take discipline, but your body will thank you!

With the big three of diet, exercise and sleep being covered, there are also a few other tricks you can try when it comes to increasing your energy. For instance, try popping a mint or chewing a minty gum. The scent ups alertness by stimulating your trigeminal nerve, which is the same nerve that’s activated by smelling salts. Or, consider drinking a cup of green tea. It contains theanine, which calms you while leaving your mind clear. Finally, if possible, take a power nap. According to Harvard research, 30-minute midday naps prevent energy from flagging further, while hour-long naps actually boost energy and performance. And, if all else fails, take the advice of Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., the medical director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers and massage your ears. A quick 30-second rub stimulates energizing acupuncture points that give you a quick mental boost.

We Americans are so busy that we don’t often prioritize the things that give us life and vitality. However, if we want to regain our strength and be able to enjoy our day-to-day, we need to start treating our bodies with care and giving them what they need. So, take our advice and get serious about regaining your energy. Talk to your doctor and start incorporating healthy habits into your routine. Then, enjoy the boost of life and joy that comes your way!

5 Tips for Improving Your Sleep Quantity & Quality

Few things in life are as universal and as neglected as sleep. While our society does not necessarily promote healthy lifestyles or sleep patterns, you can take your health into your own hands by implementing these tips for better and more restorative sleep.

The Importance of Sleep

Young woman relaxing in bed

Sleep is crucial for our health including our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Each person has a different level of sleep that is optimal for their needs. Part of it depends of genetic factors and part based on physiological factors such as age, sex, and previous sleep amounts. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a simplified definition for what entails an adequate amount of sleep is a sleep from which one wakes up naturally with a feeling of refreshment.

Negative Effects Of Inadequate Sleep

According to Psych Central, there are a multitude of negative long-term and short-term effects caused by insufficient amounts of quality sleep. These include:

  • Lower stress threshold: When you’re tired, even simple and mundane tasks can become more challenging.
  • Memory impairment: Deep levels of sleep encourage the growth of connections between cells, and REM assists memory formation.
  • Impaired concentration: Alertness and focus can decrease with insufficient levels of sleep. With sleep deprivation, you can have difficulty concentrating on tasks and can be overconfident in your ability to perform.
  • Higher resting blood pressure: Increased blood pressure can result from a lack of sleep. Even losing half a night of sleep can increase blood pressure in people with hypertension.
  • Increased appetite: If you consistently experience insufficient sleep, you may find yourself eating more in order to maintain levels of necessary energy, and thus increasing your propensity for obesity.
  • Greater risk of cardiac morbidity: Several factors can lead to an increased risk of heart attacks. Sleep deprivation is among them, and sleep deprivation leads to increased inflammation.
  • Decreased optimism and sociability: Sleep deprivation can impair your mood, making you less hopeful and enjoy social interactions less.
  • Lower creativity: Sleep deprivation may decrease the ability to experience emotions and think innovatively.

Also, there may be a link to sleep deprivation over the span of one’s life and the increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. According to an article in Medical News Today, those suffering from Alzheimer’s tend to spend less time asleep, and had higher levels of fragmented sleep compared with others who don’t.

Common Obstacles to Good Sleep

Stimulants such as coffee and nicotine can interfere with sleep patterns. Alcohol can also disrupt sleep, and the resulting quality of sleep will be subpar. Also, excessive noises, high or low temperatures and bright lights can detract from quality sleep. Studies are also showing that the use of mobile devices and watching screens near bedtime can impair the quality and quantity of your sleep, because of a blue light they emit that signals your brain to be awake and alert.  Eliminate these factors as much as possible before going to bed to promote the more restful, restorative sleep you need.

5 Tips for Improving Your Sleep

  1. Avoid caffeine (in coffee, chocolate, cola and tea) and tobacco for four to six hours before heading to bed. If you can, even consider eliminating these stimulants from your lifestyle!
  2. Consider putting away the screens an hour or so before bed. The blue light and brain activity keeps you awake longer, and may have you tossing and turning in bed at night.
  3. Create a bedroom environment that is more conducive for sleeping you greatly increase the chance of getting a restful night of sleep. Keep your bedroom quiet, dark and cool to promote restful slumber.
  4. Establish a pre-sleep routine to condition yourself for bed. Instead of jumping straight from activity to sleep, create a wind-down, transitional period where you partake in relaxing, non-stimulating activities such as recreational reading, taking a bath or practicing relaxation techniques.
  5. Refrain from lying awake in bed, as this can train your brain to associate your bed with being awake. It is best to only use your bed when you are sleeping. If after 15 minutes you find yourself staring up at the ceiling, completely alert, then get out of bed and read or do some other similarly quiet activity until you feel drowsiness begin to set in again.

Sleep Quantity AND Quality

Getting healthy, restorative sleep is about more than just he number of hours you clock each night. It’s also important to get productive sleep that leaves you feeling refreshed, because sleep is when your brain actively works on improving neuronal plasticity. This can have beneficial effects on your cognition and memory.

Good, quality sleep is so important that we have formulated our Productive Sleep supplement to try and help equip your brain with the resources it needs which may make it easy to slip into sleep and get the restorative rest your brain and body need.

Do You need some Monday Motivation?

Mondays I believe set the tone for my whole week.  Here are some of the things that I do to help prep for my Monday Motivation!

  1. I am a List maker- I make a list of the tasks I would like to accomplish. I usually keep a list going of tasks that I need to complete. My list is pretty long, but that helps me to focus, prioritize and key into the areas of my personal and business that I want to focus on each day!  What I do is use that “ongoing” list to create my daily list. I always take just a couple minutes to do this every night before I go to bed.  I find that I don’t lay in bed thinking about all the things I have to get done tomorrow because I have already done that, made my notes, created my list and and I am ready for the day.  I love feeling I am making wise use of my time. I create my monthly calendars 6 months in advance and update my home and travel plans weekly.
  2. I  prepare myself for Monday by creating  Sunday night “Me Time” A self care routine. The weekends can be exhausting catching up on all the home projects. My emotional bank account  is empty and I need to refill. Some of my favorite things to do include– something as simple as taking a bath, taking some time to journal, reading a book, or listening to classical music, or watching my favorite tv show! Just this little bit of “me time”is enough to fuel me for my Monday Morning Motivation.

3. Getting up an extra 15 mins earlier-getting prepared for Monday helps make the morning a breeze,  I find that when I don’t have these things in order I feel can feel exhausted and overwhelmed.

  1. The most important thing I do is get mentally prepared–I always start my day (every Liftday) with a glass of water and my vitamins. My favorite beverage is a combination of Lift and Mind. I knew the 1st time I took Lift that something very special helped me and my ability to think and prioritize my day. I felt energized and ready to jump into my day. After 20 years of working in the health and nutritional world I am convinced that the formulas of Lift and Mind are so valuable for the health of the human brain. Two very valuable ingredients L-phenylalanine and choline are MIND Brain Health Supplementwell documented to support memory focus and motivation.
  2. I alway have breakfast- I believe Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! You can’t run a car on empty and you can run your body without supporting your health with a healthy breakfast.

Remember, you are the CEO! The CEO of your Life, Family or your Business.  I have looked at my Mondays and how they affect the rest of my week- Mondays have a huge impact on me and my week, and I want to do everything in my power to start my week of right!
